Many bike locks these days have become ineffective as thieves can get past them. However, Lock8, is designed to prevent your bike from being stolen and if it does, a built in GPS can track the location of your bike. The device is connected to the bike’s frame and is also paired up to your smartphone. To lock and unlock the device, you use a mobile app.
Lock8 has a variety of six sensors to determine is a theft is happening. It can detect temperature changes, vibration, and motion. When triggered, a 120-decibel alarm will ward off any thieves. The owner will also be given a notification on his or her phone and can track the bike’s location. The company behind Lock8 plans to sell the device for $199. For a bike lock, it seems quite expensive. But for someone who constantly loses their bike to theft or does not want to risk losing his or her new, expensive bike, then it would be worth every penny.
