Why You Should Get a Smart Lock

These are not simple or certain times we live in.  Have you ever forgotten to arm your security system before leaving the house for the day?  If so, you’re not alone. Fake contractors and handymen knocking on your door with mischief on their minds? All too common. And let’s not forget the common burglar who seeks entry into your home, one who’s most likely to try getting in through a door before attempting another means of access.

For these and other reasons, you might just be a candidate for a smart lock for one or more of your home’s entry doors. It’s a technically advanced device that provides secure keyless access, user identification and even automated control of other devices

When installed as part of a home security system, a smart lock gives you smart access control, awareness of important events, and automated convenience.

Smart access control enables you to provide secure access to your home for friends and family members via unique four-digit codes. You also can create unique codes for your children, house cleaner, or a trusted contractor who you allow to work inside your home without supervision. Afraid that these codes can be stolen or shared? Set an expiration date for each one that only you are aware of.

For even greater peace of mind, you’ll know when someone enters your home using their four-digit code and, because each code is unique, you’ll also know who that person is. If your kids typically arrive home before you do, you can receive a smartphone alert every day when they unlock the door.

A smart lock can also trigger other devices in your home to act, saving you time and money. When you lock up in the morning, your smart lock can trigger your security system to arm, your garage door to close, and your lights to turn off. It can even trigger your smart thermostat to set back, saving energy while you’re out.

As advanced as smart locks are, a home security system – including carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, video surveillance cameras, and more – can do even more to enhance your family’s safety and peace of mind.
