Gainsborough Freestyle eTrilock App

How does the Freestyle eTrilock work?

It is a lock that you can use/control with your smartphone.

It works with BLE (“Bluetooth Low Energy”) and remotely through a gateway.

The App uses OTA (“Over-The-Air”) firmware updates over BLE so the lock is updated at all times. It achieves this by the App on the mobile phone receiving periodic upgrades of new features and bug fixes from the App Store and updates firmware through BLE on demand.

The App can be used remotely with a Gateway/Wi-Fi Bridge that is plugged in to a powerpoint nearby the lock. The App operates the lock remotely by sending requests to the cloud which gets transferred to the Gateway then from there through BLE to the lock.
