Ultion Smart gets a Five Star Review in Gadget magazine Stuff

Last Updated Nov 19, 2019

Ultion Smart is ‘a smart door lock we actually like’ according Stuff’s editor James Day

We’ve had Stuff magazine in the kitchen every month for years.  The kids and my husband make their Christmas lists from it starting from the September issue’s annual ‘Most Wanted” list.  So imagine HOW EXCITED we were when Brisant Secure’s new Smart Lock is reviewed and gains the top FIVE STAR review.



Why did Ultion Smart get FIVE STARS from Stuff magazine?

Reading James’ comments it seems to be two main reasons.  Firstly, it’s simple, “there are no holes to drill or wires to connect.” In addition, “pairing it with the Danalock app is quick…it works and is feature rich.”  Secondly, it’s the partnership between a traditional lock and a tech partner that means that it works. James says, “We found the auto-lock function entirely reliable.”

It’s been an interesting few weeks waiting to see what would be the verdict from Stuff.  We have total confidence in our product and were happy to send the sample. We responded to the numerous questions that James asked.  The process was rigorous and despite being very sure that the product would do well, we had as few nail biting days before the verdict came in.  We couldn’t have been more delighted.  Not only did our locks get 5 STARS, we also learnt that the magazine has such a strong reputation because of their rigour.  I felt even more confident to make the kids Christmas lists from their recommendations.


What is unique about Ultion Smart according to Stuff Magazine?

Reading James’ review it seems to be the partnership between Brisant and Danalock that has made this Smart Lock smart.  The Ultion lock going into partnership with the military-encrypted Danalock V3, has created a smart lock that can be trusted by the general public.

It is, at the end of the day, keeping your home and family safe. James likes that the door also comes with a key and that the contemporary external finish “won’t alert anyone to the wizardry inside.”

There was much debate about whether the key was necessary, but the CEO’s of Brisant were adamant that it should come with a key.  The comfort that comes with tradition is not something that we felt ready to throw away, never mind asking our customers to do so!  We also liked the idea that from the outside the door looked “normal.”


What is the ‘wizardry inside’ Ultion Smart?

Having spent so much time making sure Ultion Smart is sound we have to remind you of some of the things it can do.  It has geo-fenced auto-unlocking, which James found ‘entirely reliable.”  It can be used on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and is compatible across multiple platforms, Apple Homekit, Alexa, IFTTT, Samsung Smart Things, Zigbee and Z-Wave.  It can be voice controlled with Alexa via a smart speaker or the IFTTT app.

The app offers electronic invites for guests (including integration with Airbnb app).  It offers geofencing for auto-unlocking on approach and auto-locking after a selected time .  ‘Twist assist’, which moves the control wheel with a tiny nudge, is great for older people or those with restricted mobility.

It can do loads of things.  For a full technical explanation please have a read through the website.  We also made a load of videos on You Tube that show how it works.

Ultion Smart offers “A re-assuring combo of digital and physical burglar-proofing.”


That’s James Day’s final word on Ultion Smart.  James, we couldn’t agree with you more.  That’s what Brisant Secure is all about, keeping the bad guys out, and that’s what Ultion Smart does.  It’s just a bit more exciting than usual because you can operate it from your phone!
