Park your eBike and enjoy a bit of carefree downtime – the new 'Lock' premium function of the eBike Connect smartphone app makes Kiox the key to greater security and offers additional protection. Lock enables motor support to be deactivated by removing the on-board computer. Only by attaching the same on-board computer, the lock automatically unlocks again. The display and acoustic signals indicate whether Lock is active and guarding the eBike as supplementary security. Thus, the Lock is the ideal complement to a mechanical lock. There is a one-time Lock function set up by means of an in-app purchase.
As with the central locking on a car, audible feedback tells you whether supplementary protection with Lock has been activated or deactivated. The acoustic signals can be switched on and off in the app.
The right on-board computer
The Lock premium function is available for the first time with the Kiox connected on-board computer. The eBike can only be unlocked with the on-board computer with which the Lock feature was set up via the app.
Makes reselling harder
If supplementary protection is activated with Lock, it is no longer possible to ride with motor support. This makes the eBike unattractive to thieves: they will be unable to enjoy the eBike for themselves nor will they be able to sell it on to someone else.
Once you have purchased it via the eBike Connect smartphone app, you can initially set up the Lock premium function with the Kiox on-board computer and use it to provide additional protection for your eBike along with the lock.
Using the on-board computer as the key
The Lock premium function is simply activated and deactivated by connecting and disconnecting the Kiox on-board computer - you can simply lock it and then re-start it again just as easily.
One glance is all it takes
Lock status is displayed on the screen of the on-board computer. This ensures that you know immediately that your eBike is also secured.
The premium 'Lock' function, in conjunction with the Kiox display, is compatible with the Bosch Active Line and Active Line Plus Drive Units from model year 2018 or the Performance Line, Cargo Line, Performance Line Speed and Performance Line CX from model year 2020 onwards.
Please be sure to update both Kiox and the Drive Unit to the latest software version. The current versions of our components are listed here. In addition, it explains how to find the versions of hardware and software in the settings of the on-board computer Kiox. This information is also available at ebike-connect.com > 'My eBike'.
Greater parking security
The 'Lock' premium function can be configured using Kiox and the eBike Connect smartphone app. 'Lock' is activated when the on-board computer is disconnected, ideally supplementing your eBike's mechanical lock, giving you security and peace of mind whenever you take a break.
