Node's Pretty Magical

    Nubli is a Node.JS library for Nuki Smart Locks (Nuki Bluetooth Library) Nubli is very energy efficient when used properly and should't drain more power than a Nuki bridge. It uses the same protocol the App and Bridge uses and therefore communicates securely with the Smart Lock.



    • Get Lock State of Nuki Smart Lock (including door sensor)
    • Unlock/Lock/Unlatch/LockNGo Door
    • Listen for Lock State and Door Sensor changes
    • Get Authorizations
    • Get Configuration
    • Get Advanced Configuration

    Supported devices

    • Nuki Smart Lock v2
    • Nuki Smart Lock v1 (not yet 100% compatible - Please open an issue if something doesn't work)


    • Linux-based Server (e.g. Raspberry Pi)
    • Bluetooth 4.x Dongle (Tested with $5 CSR Module)

    Note: Do not use the built-in Bluetooth in a Raspberry Pi. Due to bad hardware design it will not reliably connect to your Smart Lock and cause unexpected disconnects. I've been there and invested a whole week into fixing it.

    Setup / Installation

    1. npm install nubli --save
    2. See Examples or Usage
    3. Star the repository ;)


    • You can only run one instance of this library simultaneously with one dongle. If want to integrate this library into multiple applications running at the same time on the same device, either pin the applications to different bluetooth dongles or communicate with a single instance of this library via a webserver/websocket/mqtt instead.


        const nubli = require('nubli').default;
        .then(() => {
        .catch((err) => {


    Start Scanning for Nuki devices


    Start Actively Scanning for Nuki devices (Required for pairing)



    • Scanning requires the bluetooth device to be powered on. This may take a few milliseconds. Make sure to wait for the promise nubli.readyToScan() to resolve first.
    • Only use active scanning when you are trying to pair a new device. Active Scanning will drain your Smart Lock's battery very quickly. Passive Scanning only listens for advertisements from the Smart Lock and does not request additionaly information from the Smart Lock.

    Stop Scanning for Nuki devices


    Connect to a Smart Lock


    Disconnect from a Smart Lock


    Check if a config for the Smart Lock already exists

        smartlock.configExists(path?: string)boolean;

    Read Smart Lock config

        smartlock.readConfig(path?: string)Promise<void>;

    Save Smart Lock config

        smartlock.saveConfig(path?: string)Promise<void>;

    Pair with a Smart Lock

        smartlock.pair(asBridge = true)Promise<void>;

    Note: By default it will pair as bridge. If you do have a bridge, make sure to pass false as a parameter. The reason is, that when no bridge exists, Nuki will not push any state changes automatically via advertisements, so we set ourselves as a bridge instead.

    Read lock state from Smart Lock


    Unlock door

        smartlock.unlock(updateCallback?: (response: SmartLockResponse) => void)Promise<SmartLockResponse>;

    Lock door

        smartlock.lock(updateCallback?: (response: SmartLockResponse) => void)Promise<SmartLockResponse>;

    Unlatch Door

        smartlock.unlatch(updateCallback?: (response: SmartLockResponse) => void)Promise<SmartLockResponse>;

    Lock N Go Door

        smartlock.lockNGo(updateCallback?: (response: SmartLockResponse) => void)Promise<SmartLockResponse>;

    Lock N Go Unlatch Door

        smartlock.lockNGoUnlatch(updateCallback?: (response: SmartLockResponse) => void)Promise<SmartLockResponse>;

    Get Config from Smart Lock


    Get Advanced Config from Smart Lock



    Check whether a Smart Lock is already paired



    Nubli Smart Lock Discovered Event

        nubli.on('smartLockDiscovered', (smartlock: SmartLock) => void);

    Nubli started scanning

        nubli.on('startedScanning', () => void);

    Nubli stopped scanning

        nubli.on('stoppedScanning', () => void);

    Smart Lock Connected Event

        smartlock.on('connected', () => void);

    Smart Lock Disconnected Event

        smartlock.on('disconnected', () => void);

    Smart Lock Error Event

        smartlock.on('error', (err: string) => void);

    Smart Lock Activity Log Changed Event

        smartlock.on('activityLogChanged', () => void);

    Note: The activityLogChanged event only works while scanning because the Smart Lock advertises activity log changes via bluetooth. To get notified when the door opens or closes (Door Sensor) make sure to enable 'Log door sensor status' in the Nuki app.
