Alfred launches the first wirelessly rechargeable smart deadbolt lock

The first wirelessly powered smart deadbolt will launch later this year – without wireless power. The Alfred DB2S is the first self-install smart lock that can be charged via infrared power transfer, and Alfred says it will be available in early Q2 for $299 at The Home Depot, Lowe’s and other retailers.

There’s a small catch, though: for that $299 you can’t charge wirelessly, at least not yet. You have one for that Wi charge charging kit, which will be available through consumer channels in the second half of 2023 at the earliest. The price for the kit has not been set.

The charging kit, when available, will consist of a replacement backplate with a built-in Wi-Charge receiver, as well as a transmitter that requires continuous power and line-of-site to the slot. It uses infrared energy to safely transmit power over up to 30 feet and can power multiple devices at once. Wi-Charge co-founder Ori Mor says the technology is FDA approved.

The back housing of the Alfred DB2S contains a Li-Ion battery that lasts up to 11 months on a single charge. It can be charged via USB-C or wirelessly with a Wi-Charge kit where available.

Until the Wi-Charge receiver and transmitter arrive, the DB2S can get by on the included rechargeable Li-Ion battery pack, which Alfred says lasts nine to eleven months between charges. It also only takes two to three hours to charge with a standard USB-C phone charger.

Wireless charging integration seems to be the main difference between the $299 DB2S and the $199 Alfred DB2, which you can buy in stores today. The DB2 has a touchscreen keyboard and works via Bluetooth, with Z-Wave available through an add-in module and Wi-Fi with a separate $59 bridge for connection to smart home systems including Alexa and Google Home. The DB2S has all of the above, plus support for RFID cards and Zigbee (and wireless charging, of course). Alfred says the integration of matter is on the roadmap. At least then you’ll have a pretty decent smart lock, even if the wireless charging part never pans out.
