Level is out with its latest smart lock, the Level Touch which can be controlled by a tap or through HomeKit.

The original Level Lock was known as being the invisible smart lock due to the fact that all of its brains were tucked away inside your door, allowing you to keep your current deadbolt and not see any of the tech from the outside. No bulky attachments.

This new version keeps much of that design, but allows users to upgrade a deadbolt throw and outer key hole in the process with sleek new ones that respond to touch. They are no bigger than any other deadbolt hardware but sport a clean modern appearance.

When you need to lock or unlock the door, simply touch the edge. It is made with a combination of 440C stainless steel and strengthened metal alloys to meet BHMA AAA certification which is the highest industry standard for security and durability.

It runs on a standard CR2 battery driving the same six-stage motor found in the original Level Lock. The battery provides enough power for about a year of use.

Another feature is keycards. Users can tap the door with either of the two included keycards without using the Level app to automatically unlock the lock. This is helpful for those who don't have smartphones or when you go out for a run without your phone.

Many other smart lock features are present including auto-unlock, shared virtual passes, activity timeline, audio confirmation, and of course, HomeKit support.

As the Level Touch is Bluetooth, HomeKit brings more features such as remote connectivity, voice control, automation routines, and notifications.

The Level Touch is available to order from Level now for $329 and it comes in satin nickel, satin chrome, polished brass. A matte black color will arrive in early 2021.

    I bought this and love it. Frustratingly, I had to buy online and have it shipped to my US office who then shipped it to Australia because they don't sell them online to international customers, I then had to download the app via a US App Store account, that said, I could have done without it because of HomeKit.

    Anyway, after a convoluted buying process, I received it and installed it so easily, (even on a door thinner than they recommend). However, the lock is beautifully designed that its almost a shame to hide it within the door. It simply works and no one has a clue you have an automated lock as there is nothing on the outside. Its simply clever as the Skoda ads say.

    Level Lock also provided support, including the how to get auto-lock automation to work around without being prompted first. 

    This is a great lock and I am sure with further firmware updates will get even better, not that here is much you can change.

    Highly recommend this one.
