AirTag in access control! We know how to make AirTag work with smart locks as a key!
Let us share our proof of concept and ideas about it!
First of all, what is AirTag?
AirTag is a super-easy way to keep track of your belongings. Users can easily see the location of the attached tag in the Find My app. AirTag sends out a secure Bluetooth signal that can be detected by nearby devices in the Find My network. These devices send the location of AirTag to iCloud. Then users see it on a map through the app.
At CoreWillSoft, we’ve thought about using AirTag as an RFID tag to open the smart lock. You can see how we are using AirTag to open the DOM ENiQ Pro cylinder lock. We programmed the lock according to the Data on Device approach via Bluetooth LE to read the AirTag and provide access.
As a result, AirTag can be used not only as a device to track the keys, but to be the key, that you can always find!
