Goji Smart Lock, the lock that knows who's knocking Video Transcript
Hi. I'm Scott Stein with CNET with the first look at the Goji Smart Lock. Now, maybe you wanna get into your home with a little more tech in just a regular key, maybe you don't wanna give up using that key though. This is a kind of a hybrid technology because built-in here is a screen and a camera and an accelerometer. The Smart Lock will take your picture with a proximity range of 6 feet to 4 feet and store that in a cloud. Plus the accelerometer that's built into the Smart Lock will notice if you knock or tap and we'll send you an alert with that picture so let you know who's come by your door when you're not around. But there's more than that. It allows a regular mechanical key right over here if you flip them but you can control how you access it with an app that's available on iOS and Android specifically iPhone 4S and later in Galaxy's Samsung S3 and up in the Samsung Galaxy line, because of Bluetooth low energy which this uses. So, you can actually use your phone to unlock your door as you approach it or use the key. And again, you could also set it up, so if somebody has your key, they can only use it certain times of the day or in certain days and can't use it other times. So, it gives you an additional second level of control. The Smart Lock uses four AA batteries tucked in the back and is connected via WiFi and if you also know home networks, you could also use a ZigBee and it will update its firmware as needed automatically. The whole kit cost $278 and the claim you can install it within 15 minutes if you know how to take out a dead bolt and do it yourself. It's a pretty compact kit and pre-orders are being taken now and it will be available in stores next March. It's a pretty interesting one-two punch if you want to have a little bit of monitoring, a little bit extra lock control, and still have a key. I'm Scott Stein and that's a quick look at the Goji Smart Lock.
At Google's headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., Google VP of Product Management Mario Queiroz and Android Senior Product Manager Erick Tseng demo the new Google Nexus One smartphone, or as he calls it, "superphone." The new phone is made with HTC hardware and runs Google's Android 2.1 OS. Some of the features include GPS with Google Maps and turn-by-turn navigation, an accelerometer, a virtual keyboard, a light sensor for adjusting the display to save battery power, a proximity sensor, a compass, a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash, Wi-Fi, a new media gallery interface with access to Picasa and YouTube, Facebook access, and stereo Bluetooth.
Featuring DVD playback with 5.1 surround sound, iPod/MP3 player playback over USB, and innovative proximity-based controls, the JVC El Kameleon KD-AVX44 packs many of the features that we've come to expect in a double DIN multimedia receiver into a space-saving single DIN package.
