A US lab has designed a new key-less , solar-powered locking mechanism that cautions you in the event if someone tries to steal your bike .

The lock with approximately cost of USD 249 additionally alerts the owner of the vehicle in case somebody is messing with their bike's safety lock for an extended period of time , Industry Leaders magazine reported. 

The lock paired with a smart phone application offers remote access , checking as well as emergency reporting benefits to increase bikers' safety and their prized possession's security and safety , its developers said . 

The smart device instantly unlocks when you walk up to your bike , saving a user valuable time that goes into looking through a bag or pockets for keys . 

The Skylock contains an embedded accelerometer , that alerts in the event of an accident by pairing with the owner's phone using Bluetooth Low Energy and WiFi .
