Welcome to our gallery revealing some of the most innovative smart home door locks out there.
While we’ve covered many smart home technology options, this is one of the most important and game-changing.
When your security catches up with the technology in your home, everyone wins. Well, everyone but thieves win.
We’ve enjoyed covering the myriad new examples of smart home technology that grant convenience, safety, connectivity, and peace of mind to homeowners, but none have felt as essential and life-changing as these new smart locks.
First of all, the biggest and most obvious improvement smart technology brings to door locks is the ability to go keyless. While we’ve had keypads for years, this is different.
Many of these models allow you to program specific “users” that can be recognized by key code, smartphone app, or even biometric fingerprint scan. This means that your locks can now be programmed to allow specific people in the home and keep out everyone else.
Even better, many of these devices allow for complex programming. Now you can allow, for example, a housekeeper in the mornings, and a babysitter at night, with access denied at any other times.
Forget your key, or don’t want to trust your children with the keeping of such an important item? You can simply program a smart home lock to open when you approach, or remotely open the locks for your children after school
Even better, you can keep track of your home security and keep an eye on its comings and goings from anywhere on earth with an internet connection. These locks are almost all compatible with smartphones, tablets, and computers for both tracking and control.
We think that you’ll enjoy and come to depend on the improvements that come with smart home lock technology. There’s little else out there that can improve both safety and convenience in equal measure.
