‘Nokē Pro’ allows businesses to remotely operate thousands of Bluetooth Low Energy wirelessly-connected smart locks
Nordic Semiconductor today announces that Nokē, a Utah, U.S-based designer and manufacturer of smart lock technology, has released ‘Nokē Pro’, an enterprise software solution. The software is used for remotely managing and controlling the company’s range of Nordic Bluetooth® Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) locks via a smartphone app or desktop web portal.
Nokē’s Bluetooth LE locks employ Nordic’s nRF52832 System-on-Chip (SoC) to provide wireless connectivity between the lock and the user’s Bluetooth 4.0 (and later) smartphone or tablet, enabling keyless access via the user’s device. Locks are available in traditional padlock, heavy-duty padlock, u-lock, door controller, and access panel form factors.
In addition to supervising Nordic’s Bluetooth 5-certifed RF software protocol stack, the nRF52832 SoC’s 64MHz, 32-bit ARM® Cortex® M4F processor has ample power to run Nokē’s decentralized radio communications protocol, and bidirectional self-optimizing mesh networking software. The mesh software enables remote opening and key changes for Nokē locks, as well as enabling lock activity and alarm notifications to be sent to the Cloud.
