Viva actually supports three types of smart door locks: 

Main features

Remote control from the app if the user respects the following conditions
  • The user has a "Normal" user role
  • The user has a "Child" or "Visitor" user role and is located inside the home zone
Automatic locking
  • When the alarm is armed
  • When all users leave home
  • When the home is asleep
Automatic disarming of the alarm
  • When the lock is unlocked

Extra features

Automatic locking after timeout

It is possible to set a maximum unlocked time after which the lock will lock back automatically. Go in the device settings and select the wanted timeout. This only works if the door is registered as closed, either by the door lock or by a door sensor. 

Automatic unlocking when a user comes back home

This feature, once enabled in the lock settings, will allow the lock to automatically unlock when a user comes back the home. This comes with a locking timeout for security reasons. 

Alarm keyfob used for direct control of a lock
If you have an alarm keyfob installed (Aeotec or Vision), you can link it to a single door lock to control both the alarm and the lock with a same fob. Those buttons have the possibility to arm and disarm with different pressing actions. Here are some practical use cases:
  • When the user comes back home, he presses the button to disarm the alarm and unlock the door at the same time. Both actions are instantaneous. 
  • If the alarm is already armed, but the lock is unlocked because of an external action, pressing the arm button will lock the door. No need to open the app.
  • If the alarm is already disarmed, but the lock is locked, pressing the disarm button will unlock the door. No need to open the app.
This can be enabled in the fob settings under Devices > Select your fob > options > Select the door lock to be associated.
Push notification at 30% battery
Viva will send a push notification letting you know you should change the batteries of your door lock when it is under 30%.
