246 Nii Yon Lock Bluetooth Padlock

Reviewed by

The 246 Nii Yon Lock Bluetooth Padlock is a neat way to protect your belongings without having to rely on medieval technology. After all, we’re now in the digital age, so who needs a physical key? Instead, use the iOS and Android app to unlock the 246, which functions like a smart lock.

Available in a range of smart colors (ivory white, gray, black, blue, dark red), the name for the padlock is a pun on the Japanese numbers 246: ni, yon, roku. Of course, the last one sounds like “lock” too. Turn your smartphone into your key and never get locked out of your home again!
