When an update bricks your smart locks

Some smart locks made by Lockstate, the one integrated in Airbnb processes,  have been bricked after an update.

Customers have received an email from the company informing them of the “fatal error” following a software update. The two models of Lockstate smart lock affected are the 6i and 6000i, one of which retails for $469.

Customers are asked to wait 18 days for a full replacement or a week if they choose to remove and send a portion of the lock to the company for repair.
