· · Weekly Sponsorship

iMazing's App Management screen

It is my pleasure to welcome and thank iMazing and DigiDNA for coming on board to help sponsor our CES 2020 content here at TMO this week. Covering CES is a big task and takes a lot of resources. We need the time and manpower to comb through all the noise in Las Vegas this week to filter out just the stuff you want to know about. Without companies like DigiDNA helping us do this, our coverage wouldn’t be nearly what you get today.

CES – Igloohome Shows Remotely-Programmable Locks that Don't Require Wi-Fi at CES Unveiled 2020

· · Cool Stuff Found

LAS VEGAS – Igloohome’s smart locks shown here at CES Unveiled 2020 have a special feature: they don’t use Wi-Fi and yet they’re remotely programmable. This is accomplished by first pairing your phone with the lock, a process that also creates a rotating token like you might use with your bank. When you want to create a new code, everything is already set and the code is already active because of the pre-negotiated token, all happening behind the scenes. The deadbolt is US$299, the keybox is $189, and the padlock is $109. The other two dual locks will be available later this year.
