Maybe you’ve heard of this growing trend in the modern realm of mobile devices and constant connectivity: apps that can remotely control your home, eliminating the need for a thermostat, a light switch, and even keys. Created by Stanford student Jerming Gu as the first project for CANDY HOUSE Inc., Sesame Lock could not be more different from the majority of “smart door locks” currently flooding the market; arguably, it’s smarter. Instead of a cumbersome interface that requires the user to whip out a phone or type in a code to get inside, it allows you to simply knock. Sesame can identify your particular knock, either on the door or on your phone, and with the optional WiFi bridge you can remotely open the door for your friends and family through the app. The device itself is a beautiful harmony of form and function, its elegantly minimal design able to fit any deadbolt in mere seconds. While Sesame is still merely a kickstarter, it has been met with an overwhelming support – it exceeded its goal of $100,000 within nine hours — which demonstrates the importance of its intuitive design and accessible approach to home security as we look ahead.
