Ratings and Reviews

Horrible customer service, poor app design

andrewstrauss

I have sent 10+ messages to this company via various means (email, Kickstarter messaging, you tube, Facebook, etc) and all but 1 were ignored. I thought I had been ripped off, but eventually the product arrived.

Lock didn't arrive when it was supposed to. Several months after it was supposed to have shipped to me. They sent 4 tshirts, all of which were the wrong size (I don't need any XXXL shirts).

The app is poorly designed. I park my bike near my house. It is within Bluetooth range. There is no way to prevent a stranger from unlocking it, except by force quitting the app every time I come home. I wish I could just disable proximity lock/unlock, and unlock via a button in the app. This would be so easy to implement. And is what they showed in their initial videos. Even their kick starter campaign says "Alternatively, you can use the controls on the application to lock / unlock Bitlock". This makes me use an old fashioned lock instead.

The list button in the app brings up a blank screen. No clue what it is for.

I feel deceived / ripped off.

Just wish the app would function like they originally showed on the website, and that mesh motion / mehrdad would reply to emails. If I could return bitlock, I would in a heartbeat. Don't repeat my mistake. AVOID Bitlock!!!!

Many Features

The app seems to have many features that I may or may not use in the future. The main (only) feature of this lock for me is to lock and unlock it with my phone. That seems to be an overlooked feature of the app or I just can’t figure it out. Maybe a beginner app that just locks/unlocks the BitLock? p.s. I develop apps and BT products, but I can’t figure this out for the life of me :) Guessing I have a faulty lock, but can’t explain away the app. Keep iterating please!

Half baked

The lock and app work great together, however the app is half baked. I own two and both show on the map from one phone, not the other. Neither show on the list option. App needs an Apple Watch companion, perfect for not have to mess with a phone and just use the Apple Watch Bluetooth capabilities. Lock feels sturdy and the lack of a keyhole is a good visual deterrent. Please keep working on the app, hope to update my review.
