OKIDOKEYS enables consumers to securely and easily manage access to all properties anytime, anywhere, through a complete line of smart locks. Users can lock and unlock any door with OKIDOKEYS – as well as garage doors and electronic gates – using smartphones, cell phones and smart tags, and still have the option of using current traditional keys.
