Aqara today officially unveiled their latest smart lock, the Aqara N200, alongside updated versions of their popular wired Aqara rocker switches. Both the switch and the rocker switches have won prizes at the annual IF Design Awards, which is partially the reason for the unveiling of the two products.
The N200 follows on from the not long released N100, which is HomeKit compatible. The N200 is also reportedly compatible with HomeKit although we’ve yet to confirm that for certain, and even though the design of the lock is more square than the N100, the two products are fairly similar in some basic specs.
The N200 will reportedly come with a new two-factor authentication feature, although we’re not privy to what exactly that entails at present. The lock will also feature new hardware that can detect more types of tampering, including more kinds of lock picking and lock breaking attempts. Finally, the N200 will have a new, extra-durable sapphire fingerprint plate.
Thanks to Eric for the tip-off.
