U-tec Partners With Samsung

Smart home brand U-tec has partnered with Samsung's SmartThings platform, enabling U-tec's Ultraloq smart locks to be integrated with Samsung’s smart home systems. With the integration, the smart locks will be ‘Works with SmartThings’ (WWST) certified, allowing users to seamlessly control their compatible devices through the SmartThings App. Users will be able to receive notifications when the Ultraloq smart lock detects a person's entry into their home or control the smart locks with their voice through Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. They can also create their own automations, syncing with other smart home devices to, for example, turn on/off lights or play music.
