A great way to make your home more connected without compromising safety is by equipping your home with smart locks. There are a plethora of designs and features to choose from. Here is a look at some of the top contenders in the smart lock market today:
August Smart Lock with Apple Home Kit: Control your August Smart Lock-HomeKit Enabled, using Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Battery operated. Connects via bluetooth. Your exterior door hardware stays the same. Replaces only the interior side of most standard deadbolts.
Kwikset Kevo: Keep your Fob in your pocket, purse or backpack and enjoy the same Touch to Open convenience. The Kevo Fob, that is included with the Bluetooth deadbolt, is pre-enrolled so no additional setup is required. Use the Kevo app to send, delete or reassign eKeys anytime/anywhere allowing you complete control of your users.
Poly-Control Danalock: The Danalock app makes it fast and easy for you to give 3 kinds of access to your home whenever you want it. Send the access by username, sms or e-mail. You control if you want to be notified when that user locks or unlocks your door. Works seamlessly with other smart home devices, and all communication is heavily encrypted - no one can hack their way into your home.
Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt: Meets the highest industry rating for security and durability. The slim profile and tasteful design creates a stylish look that pairs well with Schlage interior door hardware. Programming and using the lock is as simple as using an app.
Yale Linus Lock: Yale and Nest reinvented the lock for your home – to be secure from the inside and out. Alerts keep you posted on comings and goings. Create passcodes for friends and family and revoke them anytime. Lock, unlock, or check if your door is open from your phone, from anywhere.
