When it comes to securing your front door, almost any lock should do the trick no problem. From mortice locks and latches to anti-snap cylinders, thumbturns and smart locks, there are endless options to choose from. But, with so many different door locks on the market today, how do you know which is best for your home?
What are smart door locks?
Exactly as their name implies, smart door locks are those that use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to interact with other devices - either via an app on your smartphone or using a fob.
Once the phone or fob is positioned near the lock, it automatically unlocks the door. Convenient, right? But these door locks don't just save you the hassle of rummaging around in your bag or pockets or trying to turn the key whilst carrying your toddler AND the weekly shopping. They do so much more than that.
1. Enhance security - worried about who might have an old key to your house? Worry no more, and replace your current lock with a smart lock. These door locks combine encrypted entry with a tamper alarm which makes it incredibly difficult for someone to break-in.
2. Convenience - yes, smart locks are modern but, above all, they are convenient. The beauty of this type of door lock is that you can open the door using your smartphone, card or fob. No need to carry a bunch of keys around with you everywhere you go which, in turn, prevents them from going missing.
3. Increase accessibility - instead of allocating keys to everyone who needs one, smart locks enable you to grant access to anyone you wish by sending them a virtual key. They will need to download the relevant app from the App Store or Google Play but you can send them keys so they can access your property. And more importantly, you can set limits for different users so the key only works at certain times/days.
4. Boost connectivity - a perhaps more surprising benefit of door locks like these is that they increase connectivity amongst all of your devices. For example, if you have a Yale CCTV system or alarm, you can connect your smart door locks to them. As a result, they allow you to secure your door remotely and to monitor your property whilst you're not there.
5. Battery-powered - if there's a power cut, you needn't worry about not being able to get in or out of your home. Smart door locks keep functioning even when the power goes down and there is usually a low battery indicator to remind you to replace the battery for a new one.
