We’ve all had that moment: You’re running late and are just about to leave the house, when it suddenly hits you, ‘Where are my keys?’.
Keys were abandoned in new-build apartments a long time ago, so the transition to smart door locks for houses makes sense for the added security. Smart locks cannot be picked, there is no access through them without the code, and their abuse can trigger an alert directly to your phone. In short, smart locks are the future.
But why else should you consider making the jump to a smart door lock?
If your door doesn’t automatically lock behind you, there’s a high chance you will leave in a rush and forget to lock it. A smart lock will detect if you’ve left the door unlocked and send you an automatic reminder, preventing you from doubting yourself and stopping potential burglars.
You can also set up your smart door lock to remind you to lock the door by a certain time of day or night. If it gets to ten o’clock at night and you’re unsure if the front door is still unlocked, you can sleep better knowing you’ll have received an automated reminder on your phone.
Rather than giving family and friends a key, or hiding your spare one under a plant pot, smart door locks have a numerical keypad.
Not only does this give you the power to make access easy for those you trust, you can also change the code at any time and set expiry dates on codes. If you have a regular service, such as a cleaner or a dog walker, you can set the code to work only at certain times of day. Meaning if that person came back later, they’d be unable to access your home.
Arguably the most persuasive feature of a smart door lock, is how it is integrated into your home security system. From security alarms to verifying visitors with your front door camera, your smart door lock can be used to enhance the features you already have.
