*** Sesame. Your key, reinvented. ***
Your physical key becomes an app in 1 second.

● Leave your keys behind
Just lock and unlock your door using the Sesame app on your phone. Better yet, open Sesame with a knock[1] on your phone or let the magic happen automatically[2] when your are back. Your keys, reinvented.

● Share access
Allow guests in no matter where you are. Control who has access and when.

● Log records
Receive a notification whenever your door opens or closes.

● Installs in seconds
Simply tape Sesame to your door with a single strip of 3M Command tape (supplied). It fits your lock without removing or swapping anything. No tools required.

● Fits all deadbolts
Sesame works with just about any single cylinder deadbolt in the USA/ Canada/ Denmark/ Sweden/ Norway/ Singapore/ Japan/ Malaysia thanks to five-patented self-adjusting mechanisms. Sesame doesn't even need to be exactly at the center of your lock or at any specific angle. It just works with your lock perfectly.

● Long battery life
Sesame lasts about 500 days on lithium batteries (supplied), and sends a notification when the batteries are low.

● Apple Watch
Lock/unlock your door with Apple Watch. If Apple Watch doesn't connect to Sesame via Bluetooth, please turn Watch's Flight Mode on and off, and make sure Sesame is nearby your Apple Watch.

Very Functional but incomplete


I got this lock originally from its kickstarter campaign a few years back.

Having use it ever since i can say that it does work pretty accurately for what it offers. It allows you to manually unlock your door, it allows you to lock your door based on a timer and it gets the Bluetooth connection pretty quick and from far away.

However if you use the widget to unlock the door, it still brings you to the actual app to click to unlock. All activities related to the lock remain local to Bluetooth because the wifi dongle is not ready, geofencing and knock to open are beta so basically don’t count until they are officially part of the mainstream app. And last but not least there is no HomeKit to be seen anywhere around.

On a side note: Supposedly homekit could still be reached via software update as apparently apple will allow it, but from that to actually happening is another story.

All being said. If you are looking for a simple lock/unlock device to control your door without your actual key. Sesame could be a good option.

Ohhh and I forgot. Battery life does go a looooooooong way. In a couple of years I don’t remember changing battery on the lock maybe once.!!

Update-Issues since iOS 11 update


Overall I've been impressed with my Sesame and have had very few issues but for the last few days since I updated my phone to iOS 11 there have been issues connecting to the lock via the app.

Update- Everything seems to be working well again. No issues here. Sesame seems every bit as good as August

Developer Response

Oh no, sorry to hear it! Could you send an email to and include your Sesame account email so we can take a look and see if we can fix the issue? Thank you! - CANDY HOUSE

Issues I can’t seem to resolve


The app on my phone works well to un/lock the lock. My watch face times out/sleeps before it connects to the lock, using Bluetooth. I added my dog walker, but she can only intermittently un/lock the door. When I try submit a request via support link in App Store I’m asked to enter a log in information. There’s no option to start a new account and my iTunes account info isn’t working. The website on my phone doesn’t have a link to sign in or create an account. So no troubleshooting is possible, yet.

Developer Response

Sorry about the issues you've had! Can you email with more information on the Apple Watch issues? Can you also let us know the device your dog walker is using? We're sorry about the iTunes issue and would be happy to offer support over email.
