BRISBANE, Australia - May 12, 2014 - PRLog -- Brisbane, Australia – GSL Innovations Pty Ltd today announces the launch of the first commercially available door handle in the world that can be controlled by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and wifi, the Genie Smart Lock. Be greeted home as the Genie Smart Lock auto-unlocks upon your arrival for hands free entry.

In the rapidly growing smart lock market, you would be forgiven for thinking a smart lock door handle with Bluetooth and wifi already exists. Unlike its competitors, the Genie Smart Lock is the world’s first door handle smart lock, rather than a deadbolt.

The Genie Smart Lock seamlessly fits your new or existing door and can be removed without a trace. This makes the Genie Smart Lock ideal for both renting and home owners.

Some of the features of the Genie Smart Lock include:
 Automatic lock and unlock on approach and exit (Bluetooth);
 Lock and unlock from anywhere in the world using your smart phone or computer;
 Bluetooth FOB and traditional key access for those without a smart phone;
 Access logs to monitor when the door has been locked and unlocked and by who;
 Send and receive bluetooth eKeys using bank level security that allow access on the dates and times specified (such as once off, every Tuesday, every weekday between 9am and 5pm etc);
 Infrared intruder alarm to alert the user when someone is at the door; and
 Removable door handle for deadbolt style use.

“The perfect fusion of aesthetic design, functionality and practicality”

“The smart lock market has a clear hole that needs to filled. Why is there not another smart lock for those that prefer a door handle to a deadbolt?”

“The Genie Smart Lock was designed with the vision of delivering a secure lock that can be controlled from anywhere in the world. A smart lock that looks great, keeps you secure and makes your life easier.”

“I was looking for a door handle with Bluetooth and wifi and was amazed to find it did not exist. That was when I knew that someone had to make it happen. From my office in an Australian law firm, the Genie Smart Lock was born.” - said founder and CEO Joel McAndrew.

The Genie Smart Lock aims to begin shipping in the fourth quarter 2014 for the festive season. The RRP of $249.00 is to be slashed in a special pre-sale frenzy to be launched in the near future. Head to to join the VIP pre-release mailing list.
