The smart lock was corrupted by a bad internet update

Not so smart anyway?

Several of the US LockState customers have been closed after an update of the popular code locks put them out of order.

Popular among homeowners
The lock is the case, LockState 6000i, luckily, can also be locked with a physical key - but these locks have been especially popular with Airbnb outsiders, as one can create a new code for each tenant instead of worrying about transferring one Physical key.

The locks connect to a wireless network so that they can be remotely controlled over the Internet and also updated by the manufacturer.

Must be returned to the manufacturer
- After a software update was sent to your lock, it was no longer possible to connect to our online service so we can fix it, LockStep writes in an email.

To fix the lock, it must now be returned to LockState so that they get physical access and can repair it, and it will take 5 to 7 days. Otherwise, they offer a replacement that will take 14 to 18 days before it arrives.

The problem should only apply to five hundred locks of this type, but it still questions if smarthjems units are as safe and stable as many want it.

Do you trust your smarthjems units?
