Aqara Announces Global Availability of Smart Lock U200

Aqara, a global leader and pioneer in IoT, today announced the official launch of the highly anticipated Smart Lock U200. Designed as a retrofit, keyless solution for home access management, the U200 lock offers unparalleled convenience, advanced security features, and seamless interoperability across smart home ecosystems and devices thanks to its native Matter compatibility.


The Aqara Smart Lock U200 brings a modern keyless lifestyle to a broad array of homeowners and renters, and provides multiple secure door entry options, including Apple home keys, which allow iOS users to unlock effortlessly by tapping a compatible iPhone or Apple Watch. The U200 distinguishes itself as one of the first Matter-over-Thread locks to support home key unlocking and is also one of the first retrofit smart locks to feature Apple home key.

Other unlocking methods of the Smart Lock U200 include:

  • Fingerprint recognition: Fast and secure access with the high-precision fingerprint reader.
  • PINcodes: Personalized codes can be entered on the included, pre-paired wireless keypad. Moreover, Aqara Home users can manage guess access easily with not only periodic passwords but also one-time passwords that can be remotely created, shared, and used even when the lock is disconnected from any platforms.
  • Mobileapps and voice assistants: Remote control via Aqara Home, Alexa, Apple Home/Siri, Google Home/Google Assistant, SmartThings, Home Assistant, and more1.
  • Aqara NFC cards: Quick and easy unlocking using Aqara’s NFCkey fobs2.
  • Traditional keys: emergencyaccess with the original keys.

The U200 lock stands out with its hassle-free retrofit design, allowing homeowners and renters to upgrade their existing locks – such as Euro mortise locks and US deadbolt locks – without the need to change keys or modify the door structure. This lock provides an instant smart update to most homes and is suitable for DIY installation, as attaching the U200 over the existing lock is simple and requires no tool apart from a screwdriver.

Security is a top priority with the Smart Lock U200. It features advanced encryption to protect against hacking, a tamper alarm on the wireless keypad, and an auto-lock function that secures the door automatically after a set period. Additionally, the U200 provides real-time notifications to keep users informed about their home’s security status.

The U200 retains many popular features of the previous Aqara locks, such as local and encrypted storage of sensitive data like fingerprints and passwords, anti-peep PIN code protection, Do-Not-Disturb mode, Passage mode, and Night Latch mode3. Furthermore, it adds thoughtful features like quiet unlock mode to minimize the noise level, pull spring feature for handle-less or inward-opening doors, as well as turn-to-lock and turn-to-unlock functions.

Built upon the energy-efficient Thread protocol, the U200 lock is designed for extended use. The lock runs on rechargeable Li-Ion batteries and boasts a battery life of up to 6 months between each charge. Additionally, the IPX5-rated wireless keypad is operable with AAA batteries or existing doorbell wiring, which allows for uninterrupted usage4.

The U200 lock is compatible with Euro mortise locks with Emergency Function, and supports various cylinders including EU profile cylinders, select Scandi profile cylinders and UK oval cylinders. An Emergency Function enables the cylinder to be unlocked from the outside using a key, even if another key is already inserted on the inside. Adjustable cylinders are sold separately by Aqara. The U200 is also compatible with single-cylinder deadbolt locks.
