Better Security, Unmatched Convenience Opening your door with your smartphone is no longer an idea from science fiction. Smart locks harness advanced digital security technology to make the process of entering your home or business more convenient while improving your security. Instead of a traditional lock and key, smart locks use a variety of techniques – commonly smartphone apps or pin-codes – to help you easily and conveniently enter your home or business. With a smart lock, all you need to do to get into your house is open and app and press a button – and you never have to worry about losing your key, locking yourself out, or having a key stolen from you.
The ability to remotely control access to their home is for many people the biggest benefit of a smart lock. If you have ever wished you could let your cleaner, delivery driver, or visiting relative into your home without being there yourself, you will love this feature. Some smart locks use keypads to allow these people to gain access to your home with a temporary code. Others allow you to remotely lock and unlock the door using a smartphone app.
Imagine you arrive home from a difficult day at the office. You haul your weekend paperwork out of the trunk. Now imagine that instead of having to fumble in your pocket for your keys, the door to your home opens automatically to welcome you in. You can still use your key as a backup method of access, but on a daily basis smart locks can detect your presence using your phone and unlock automatically to let you in. When you decide that smart locks are right for you, it is always best to get them installed by a real local locksmith. Local residential locksmiths provide a professional service, with all the work carried out by technicians who have been through extensive training. If you are not satisfied with the work, you can be sure that your local locksmith will return swiftly to put things right.

Landlords are among the first parties to receive that angsty phone call from tenants who experience an accidental lock-out. The causes for unintentional lock-outs are multitudinous: a key has gone missing, the key has broken off in the lock, tenants went out to walk the dog and left the key behind...there are umpteen reasons why a tenant may find themselves locked out of their apartment. Are digital locks the solution to these nettlesome situations? Maybe. Before making a decision, it’s better to start with the objective view of digital locks, or “smart locks,” in rental properties to understand the potential pros and cons of switching to this new type of security system.
What Are Smart Locks? Smart locks are the blanket term for any entry system - either the turning mechanism or the entire deadbolt assembly - that’s connected to the Internet. They can range in features and sophistication from basic models that resemble an old-fashioned deadbolt to slick products that would fit right in on the shelves of the Apple Store. With the range of available smart locks comes a range of prices that landlords will pay for installing them in their properties. Smart locks allow homeowners and renters to leave home without bringing their keys. Getting back in requires either a few taps on a keypad or unlocking the system remotely with a smartphone app. Some smart locks can cater to short-term rentals or vacation rentals, where the app behind the smart lock generates a one-time keycode that expires in a set number of hours (or days if needed).
