Halfords Marketplace will sell Noke, the world’s first Bluetooth-enabled padlock and bike mount kit from today. The smartlock is rapidly becoming a favourite of UK cyclists, gym goers and sports fans since being introduced from its native USA earlier this year.
Noke’s name is inspired by its no key needed design – the smart lock automatically finds and connects to the user’s Bluetooth 4.0 enabled device. No keys needed. Simply walk up to the lock, press the shackle and access your gear.
The Noke padlock is compatible with iOS devices, Apple Watch Android and Windows phones and makes securing bicycles, sporting equipment, gates, boats and a multitude of other possessions quick and easy. The Noke App makes it easy to manage multiple locks and create custom settings specific to each Noke – so access to locked items such as mountain bikes and gates can be shared and revoked as needed. Just specify the day, time and duration of access – then use the app to view the lock’s history and check where, when and by whom the lock was opened.
Dips Patel, Business Development Director at Noke’s UK distributor A. Mistry Ltd said, “Halfords is the UK’s largest cycling retailer and so we are delighted that Noke will be available to buy via Halfords Marketplace. As an official stockist, Halfords Marketplace will help make the Noke incredibly accessible; meaning lots more cyclists and outdoors fans will be able to keep their bikes and other possessions safe and secure.”
Laura Walsh, Halfords Marketplace Trading Assistant said, “Following Noke’s success in the US, we’re really excited to stock this innovative product on Halfords Marketplace. With its smart keyless design, it represents a true leap forward in terms of the features and capabilities and will offer customers even more choice when it comes to keeping their bikes safe".
Noke will also launch its latest creation, the U-Lock, a u-shaped smart padlock for bicycles in winter 2016. A mix of brains and beauty, the U-Lock has steel alloy housing and is strong and durable – keeping bikes safe whatever the weather. With smooth surfaces and soft edges, a minimal aesthetic and striking finish, the U-Lock is the next generation of smart padlock, exactingly designed for cyclists.
