Remotelocks and Mortice Latches

Remotelocks and Mortice Latches

What makes Lockstate Remotelocks unique in the smart lock world is their compatibility with mortice latches. The 6i and 7i are compatible with numerous existing mortice locks, meaning that you can most likely leave your existing lock in place and simply fit the Remotelock in place of the old handle.  This gives you additional security options as you can use the lower euro cylinder in addition to the Remotelock. We offer a range of compatible mortices that offer different functionality. The Zoo ZPL is a budget mortice with an independent Euro cylinder. The Salto has a connected euro cylinder and the Hafele has an automatic deadbolt (coming soon) The photo shows the 7i with the Salto XS4 and a standard keyed Euro cylinder. 

Want to know if your mortice is compatible? email a photo of your door and we will advise. 

Using Mortice Locks with the 6i

What makes the Remotelock 6i and Resortlock different from other smart locks is that it comes in a mortice version. This means that in some instances you can leave your existing mortice latch and just replace the existing door handle. Lockstate offer a compatible mortice as does Salto. The video below demonstrates how you can achieve additional levels of security using the Salto XS4 mortice.
