Integrating VERA Plus with a TTLock device
« on: September 18, 2017, 04:06:48 pm »
I'm setting up a B&B with a few rooms and require some smart lock system to set passwords remotely.

The lock I'm looking at can be viewed at:
https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Office-Home-apartment-cylinder-electronic-smart_60582161119.html

It is operated through bluetooth.

The source code of the app (TTLock) to operate the above lock is available at:
https://github.com/ttlock

Any idea how to integrate this with VERA Plus on bluetooth (all locks are within 20 foot of the VERA Plus)?

I wouldn't trust anything on that site.  Cheap means just that and may have lack of support. Also, I didnt see anything with bluetooth in the description.  But seriously 60 dollars for anything bluetooth besides headphones spells disaster and cheaply made.   Shell out the 150 bucks for KWIKSET LOCKS or other zwave lock.

Thanks Michael,
Oops! I corrected (in previous post) the URL to link to the bluetooth lock version. :-[

Unfortunately I have to take costs into consideration:
The referenced locks are about $65 while the YALE smartlock and Z-wave module adds up to $251. On 14 locks  that makes for a difference of $2604!

This is a lot of money and warrants an investigation into alternatives.
The Kwikset lock is not on option because a hardware "unlocking tool" is sold online - See this link:

Most locks, even commercial locks, can be easily overpowered. Just tiny pins keeping the mechanism from rotating without a key.  Locks are intended to keep honest people honest.  Criminals intent on entering a building will get in - through the door, a window, etc.
