SafeTech Products is launching The Quicklock Padlock, $79 smart-electronic padlock with NFC (near field communication) and Bluetooth.

The Quicklock Padlock is ideal for consumer, small business and industrial applications. This smart lock incorporates NFC technologies that provide additional flexibility when both securing and accessing the items that are important to individuals, families and companies.

Users can download a free mobile app to connect with The Quicklock Padlock through their smartphones. The Quicklock mobile app enables smartphones to open the lock via Bluetooth. The app, which is compatible with phones running iOS and Android, also provides asset management capabilities to track who accessed the lock and when.

One phone can be used to control multiple padlocks. A number of different NFC-enabled wearable tech items work the same way—eliminating the need for multiple keys. Up to 50 NFC fobs can be used to open one Quicklock so several members of a family or business can have fast, secure access. If owners want to share access rights, The Quicklock Padlock architecture also allows them to send a passcode via text or voice.

For users without a smartphone or those who want additional options to open their lock, wireless NFC access is available in the form of a ring, label, keycard or a fob. The Quicklock Padlock comes standard with one NFC keycard. The Quicklock Padlock comes with an internal, rechargeable lithium polymer battery that will last up to two years and can be easily recharged in a few minutes via USB.
