Smart Lock SDK for Android encapsulates the APIs to communicate with smart locks over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and accelerates lock app development. The SDK supports the following features:

  • Lock user system: manage lock users and associated passwords
  • Unlocking with passwords: get dynamic passwords and manage temporary passwords
  • Lock usage records: unlocking records, doorbell records, and alerts

The SDK is currently available in preview, being continuously optimized. If you have any problems or suggestions about the SDK, submit a ticket to request technical support.
