The Aqara Smart Lock U200 brings a modern keyless lifestyle to a broad array of homeowners and renters, and provides multiple secure door entry options, including Apple home keys, which allow iOS users to unlock effortlessly by tapping a compatible iPhone or Apple Watch. The U200 distinguishes itself as one of the first Matter-over-Thread locks to support home key unlocking and is also one of the first retrofit smart locks to feature Apple home key.

Other unlocking methods of the Smart Lock U200 include:

  • Fingerprint recognition: Fast and secure access with the high-precision fingerprint reader.
  • PIN codes: Personalized codes can be entered on the included, pre-paired wireless keypad. Moreover, Aqara Home users can manage guess access easily with not only periodic passwords but also one-time passwords that can be remotely created, shared, and used even when the lock is disconnected from any platforms.
  • Mobile apps and voice assistants: Remote control via Aqara Home, Alexa, Apple Home/Siri, Google Home/Google Assistant, SmartThings, Home Assistant, and more1.
  • Aqara NFC cards: Quick and easy unlocking using Aqara’s NFC key fobs2.
  • Traditional keys: emergency access with the original keys.

The U200 lock stands out with its hassle-free retrofit design, allowing homeowners and renters to upgrade their existing locks - such as Euro mortise locks and US deadbolt locks - without the need to change keys or modify the door structure. This lock provides an instant smart update to most homes and is suitable for DIY installation, as attaching the U200 over the existing lock is simple and requires no tool apart from a screwdriver.

Security is a top priority with the Smart Lock U200. It features advanced encryption to protect against hacking, a tamper alarm on the wireless keypad, and an auto-lock function that secures the door automatically after a set period. Additionally, the U200 provides real-time notifications to keep users informed about their home’s security status.

The U200 retains many popular features of the previous Aqara locks, such as local and encrypted storage of sensitive data like fingerprints and passwords, anti-peep PIN code protection, Do-Not-Disturb mode, Passage mode, and Night Latch mode3. Furthermore, it adds thoughtful features like quiet unlock mode to minimize the noise level, pull spring feature for handle-less or inward-opening doors, as well as turn-to-lock and turn-to-unlock functions.

Built upon the energy-efficient Thread protocol, the U200 lock is designed for extended use. The lock runs on rechargeable Li-Ion batteries and boasts a battery life of up to 6 months between each charge. Additionally, the IPX5-rated wireless keypad is operable with AAA batteries or existing doorbell wiring, which allows for uninterrupted usage4.

The Smart Lock U200 is now available at Aqara’s Amazon brand stores throughout North America (US, Canada) and Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, UK), as well as through select Aqara retailers worldwide.

The U200 lock is compatible with Euro mortise locks with Emergency Function, and supports various cylinders including EU profile cylinders, select Scandi profile cylinders and UK oval cylinders. An Emergency Function enables the cylinder to be unlocked from the outside using a key, even if another key is already inserted on the inside. Adjustable cylinders are sold separately by Aqara. The U200 is also compatible with single-cylinder deadbolt locks.

  1. A Matter controller with Thread Border Router functionality is required to connect the Smart Lock U200 to any third-party Matter-enabled system.
  2. Aqara NFC card is available in-box with the Smart Lock U200 Kit or sold separately.
  3. Some of these features may not be available at the time of launch, and will be added via subsequent OTA updates.
  4. The 6-month battery life is based on the assumption of 8 cycles of unlocking and locking per day. To operate the wireless keypad with the existing doorbell wiring, a 12V-24V AC/DC power supply is required.

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the publication next month of The Power of Where: A Geographic Approach to the World's Greatest Challenges. Written by Esri president Jack Dangermond with a dedicated Esri team and numerous contributors, this important new book explores the geographic approach—a way of solving problems using spatial analysis to perceive and understand patterns ranging from wildlife migration and rising seas to urban planning and food production. According to Dangermond, sustainability begins with geography. "I believed this when we started Esri, and I'm even more convinced today," says Dangermond. "GIS [geographic information system technology] provides a platform for addressing problems, exploring alternatives, designing solutions, and sharing them in a visual way that inspires action."

Egle Therapeutics to share preclinical data for its first autoimmune disease program, EGL-003, with an oral presentation at the 2024 Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy Meeting17.7.2024 18:00:00 CEST | Press release

Egle Therapeutics, a biotechnology company focused on advancing the next generation of regulatory T cell-focused therapies for oncology and auto-immunity, will deliver an oral presentation at The Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy meeting taking place in Paris from September 4th to 7th, 2024. The presentation, entitled “EGL-003, a novel IL-2 mutein to selectively expand and activate regulatory T cells and improve therapeutic efficacy in autoimmune disease”, will show evidence that EGL-003, a non-targeted Fc-fused IL-2 agonist mutein, selectively binds to regulatory T cells (Treg) and induces Treg IL-2 signaling. The resulting increase of Treg frequencies was observed in vitro and in different mouse models. Accordingly, EGL-003 significantly improved clinical, macroscopic, and histological parameters in a DSS-induced colitis mouse model with expansion of tissue-resident Tregs. EGL-003 is the first drug candidate being developed for treatment of autoimmune diseases in Egle’s pipeline and h
