What’s new in v2.0017 January 2021
We are glad to announce version 2.00 of our Verroo app! It includes a bunch of fixes and improvements, some of which drastically alter the way the app behaves. Please read below for more details.
Important: if you cannot connect to your lock, please flash its firmware. Check out our FAQ.
Please be aware that for Quick Unlock to work, you might need to upgrade your lock’s firmware. To do so, the easiest way is to connect to the lock using the cogwheel and when prompted, accept to perform the updates.
Unlocking, the natural way
Quick Unlock is the new way to unlock your locks. Not only is it drastically faster (down to 1.25s to unlock!), it is also easier to use. From now on, when you tap anywhere but on the top right of a lock in your lock list, this will trigger quick unlock. A message will inform you of the progress and offer you to cancel at any time, or to relock immediately once the lock will have unlocked.
Accessing your settings
Due to the addition of Quick Unlock, the way to access your lock settings has changed. When not in range, tapping anywhere on the lock in your lock list will still go to the lock control page. However, when in range, tapping anywhere but on the top right corner (where you see the cogwheel icon) will trigger Quick Unlock. If you don’t want to unlock but actually want to access the lock control page, you will now have to tap on that cogwheel icon.
When using an iPhone, you can now use Siri to unlock your devices. If you have an Android phone, you will very soon be able to use Google Assistant!
To do so, you need a key with “Voice Control” permission, and you will need to choose “Voice Control” in Manual mode.
Some expert settings have made their may into our app. Do no change them unless you know what you are doing (that is, unless your installer or our team has instructed you to do so).
Easier eKey exchange
You can now send eKeys in a variety of ways. If you want to give an eKey to someone nearby, try the “on screen” transfer. It’s easy and instantaneous when emails or MMSes can sometime take very long to arrive. It also does not use any network, so you can give people keys fully offline.
When receiving an eKey over MMS, email or chat, the text now includes an easy link. No need to save the eKey image anymore, just tap the link to set up your new eKey!
Here’s a list of some other changes:
- Most error messages now display an error code. If you have a persisting problem, you will be able to use it to find a solution to your problem, or it will help our team assisting you.
- All around smoother experience with a more responsive app.
- A variety of improvements.
Extra note if you have locks left on your shelf
If you have locks left in stock that you have not installed yet, note the installation mode may not work with them. Typically, when connecting to the lock in installation mode, the connection will succeed but you will quickly get disconnected (the screen will turn grey). If you need to use it, you will need flash the firmware, using the “Flash Firmware” option in the menu on the main screen. This will flash the latest firmware in the lock, which is compatible with app 2.00.
