Is it a lock, a doorbell or a camera? All of the above.Why bother with a bunch of pesky accessories when you can have a single device do all of the heavy lifting? That's the idea behind Gate Labs' Gate smart lock. As a Wi-Fi deadbolt with a built-in keypad, camera, motion detector, speaker, microphone and "call" button, Gate promises to do much more than your standard app-enabled lock.
At the touch of an app, the Gate smart lock allows you to open your doorsTwo former Google Glass engineers have teamed up to create Gate, a smart lock which they are claiming to be the first all-in-one-solution to home access. Enhancing your deadbolt lock capabilities with smartphone connectivity, a motion detection 720p camera, built-in speaker and microphone, and LED-lit key code options, it is aiming to be the ultimate smart lock.

Gate Smart Lock has a camera and a keypadWe've seen video doorbells before, that let you see who's at your door via an app on your smartphone. We've also seen smart door locks, that let you digitally control who is allowed to enter your home. Gate Labs has now combined the two in one device, in the form of its Gate Smart Lock.
