PassiveBolt, a provider of smart lock technology, has won the CES 2020 Innovation Award in the smart home category for its Shepherd Lock, a touch-enabled smart lock with enhanced security through sensors and Artificial Intelligence.  

Shepherd Lock will be at booth #50529 in the innovation awards area of the Sands Expo Hall G at CES 2020.

Shepherd Lock’s keyless entry technology allows users to lock and unlock their door inside and outside with a touch — no fingerprints needed. Shepherd Lock is an add-on that converts the existing lockset into a touch activated device, allowing homeowners to keep their existing lockset and keys.

Shepherd’s patent pending combination of sensors and AI actively monitors your lock 24/7. The smart home technology can detect lock picking or tampering attempts and automatically freeze the deadbolt into a locked position in response. Shepherd notifies the homeowner immediately through the secure mobile app. The app also allows homeowners to manage home access, view access history, share electronic keys and remotely control the lock. 

“We are honored to be recognized for our innovation in this incredibly competitive category,” said Kabir Maiga, co-founder. “Shepherd Lock was designed with safety as a top priority. As such, it is more than just a smart lock; it is a home security product. Shepherd is the only solution to combine fingerprint-free touch technology, lock picking and tampering alerts, non-invasive installation and live lock monitoring 24/7 through AI, all in one smart lock.”
