Smart locks can also act as "control identity Two Factors "for your door: Just like gmail sends you an alert when it sees an attempt connection from an unknown device, the smart lock sends alerts if someone tries to unlock the door at a strange time, say, during the hours work you or when no one should be home, or if someone is trying to guess code or yes violate the door.

Changing home security from a traditional lock and key to a smart lock can give many people a sense of freedom. Smart locks are the lifeline for those who forget their keys or lose them.

It also has a built-in voice that allows you to control the lock with a simple command instead of getting out of bed to lock. It is practical even for relatives or caregivers, as instead of having a key they have their own password.

Retrofit locks provide connectivity to the current deadbolt, and allow operation via your phone, with automatic unlock or voice commands. Complete deadbolt replacements are a bit heavier and provide capabilities for keyboards and fingerprint sensors, but require more craftsmanship.

Although the point is not to carry keys all the time, it is a good idea to have backup copies if the WiFi, the power supply or lock batteries collapse.

WiFi connection is also required to access the lock from your phone when you are not at home. Without WiFi, you will only be able to use the application when you are in Bluetooth range.
