The Brink’s Home Security ARRAY smart lock from Hampton Products International was awarded “Best Indoor Living Product” at the International Builders’ Show (IBS), held in Orlando in January. ARRAY was chosen from among more than 400 entries in nine categories. The lock was also a finalist for the show’s "Best Technology Product" award.
Ayla’s technology enabled Hampton to add cloud connectivity to ARRAY, creating a secure, connected digital door lock that works with smartphones via Wi-Fi and is compatible with iOS, Android and Amazon Alexa-enabled devices.
Ayla and Hampton announced a strategic partnership in January 2016. Product development progressed so quickly that the ARRAY debuted just one year later, at IBS as well as CES. It will be available for pre-orders in May.
The Brink’s Home Security ARRAY smart lock is a cloud- and app-enabled internet of things (IoT) device that homeowners can use without adding separate hubs or accessories. ARRAY connects to the cloud using a home’s existing Wi-Fi router, and its advanced rechargeable power system with built-in solar panel eliminates the need to replace and discard batteries.
