The Latch C2.

Latch C2 black hardware

To bring LatchOS to even more spaces, we designed the Latch C2 to make retrofits and ongoing operations easier for every project. As a gateway to our broader ecosystem, the C2 delivers enhanced efficiency and added benefits to more properties through our full-building operating system.

Built to account for door alignment.

The Latch C2 was designed with both retrofit and new buildings in mind. As buildings settle and door frames shift, door alignment and motorized lock operations can become compromised. The Latch C2 solves these problems through its patent-pending turn mechanism, providing real-time tactile feedback when locking and unlocking and increased longevity for each building.

Simplified installation.

The Latch C2’s streamlined, three-piece, modular design simplifies installation and doesn’t require any extra wiring or infrastructure, resulting in lower upfront costs and fewer logistical headaches for both owners and installers.

Streamlined building operations.

With 24 months of battery life, even with constant Bluetooth availability, the Latch C2 minimizes extra work for building staff. Every time a resident unlocks using the Latch App, property managers automatically get battery life updates. Our Inductive Jumpstart™ technology also allows Qi-compatible power sharing that charges the lock in the event of a dead battery, supplying enough power for users to gain access and change the batteries if power is ever lost.

Convenient ways to lock and unlock.

Like all Latch devices, the C2 can be unlocked several ways, including the Latch App on iOS and Android devices, Apple Watch, or other credentials like a keycard or doorcode. Locking is also made more convenient by not requiring credentials, so all users have to do is turn the deadbolt to secure their space.
