    One question I have is how do you remotely lock the door with Gate if you leave home and forget to lock it for example? Is there a way to lock and unlock from the app when no there is no knock or motion detected?

    I'm with Alex - is there really no way to lock the door if you know it's open unless there's motion outside?

    The feature to remotely lock and unlock on demand is desperately needed. In addition, the "live view" feature is a must as well. Hope there'll be an OTA update soon!

    Wow. I am looking for the same thing. It seems like such an obvious requirement for this kind of lock yet the feature is missing.

    I would also like to see a proximity unlock too so it would unlock as you walk up to the door.

    Yeah, really.. This should be a standard feature to be able to lock/unlock it remotely if someone forgets to lock it and leaves.

    At the very least there should be a time to lock feature, but both would be nice.

    How is the most obvious feature not implemented on roll out? Plus is anyone else having trouble locking from the keypad?

    HOLY COW

    I waited how long on this indiegogo project and finally get it installed - seems to be owrking but I cant believe there is no lock/unlock button....

    Needs motion really?

    When will this be implemented?

    Also need a way for the door to autolock if it is left open past a certain hour at night or other times...

     

    UGH!!!

    1) How to unlock and lock remotely if there is no motion dection.

    2) Getting "Jamed" message on lock/unlock button in the app.

    3) Locking and unlocking never worked with lock button or with the keyback on hardware or from the app.

    Getting some noice when pressed "lock" button, but its not working.

    4) No live streaming, getting this message "Video feed will be available when there is activity at the door.

    5) I am just getting a notification on my device on clicking "call" button on the lock , Again I have to select that notification to see the Video feed, this is really not smart. I was expecting similar to a phone call when I click on "call" button. Tracking will be difficult if we get only notification when some one clicks "call" button.

    I understand its in Beta program, but giving this kind of product to users is not happy. I was waited more than a year, finally not happy with this.

    Device is not detecting my 5GHz internet channel, any changes required on Router ?

    Thanks

    Shekhar,

     

    Did you orient your lock in the app? You have to change it to determine which side the lock is on.

    Yes, I did. But how does it matter for normal operation. Which issue will be resolved from my list by the orient?

    Shekhar, make sure the dead bolt is retracted when you install. That was a problem I ran into as well. Once I reinstalled this way it no longer jammed.
