Smart locks have revolutionized the way we secure our front doors, making it easier to manage access to our living spaces. With features such as remote access, keyless entry, and automation, smart locks have become increasingly popular among homeowners. In this blog, we will discuss what smart locks are and how they work. We will also recommend some smart lock products that you may want to include as part of your front door system.

What are smart locks?

Smart locks can be controlled remotely, typically through a smartphone or tablet. They can use Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to communicate with the lock, allowing homeowners to lock and unlock their front doors with ease. Some smart locks can also have a keypad for keyless entry, which eliminates the need for physical keys.

How do entry door smart locks work?

Smart locks use various technologies to operate, but they all have a similar basic setup. They have a motor that turns the locking mechanism, a communication module that connects the lock to the internet, and a power source (usually batteries).

Smart locks are controlled through a mobile app that allows the homeowner to lock and unlock the door remotely, grant access to others, and monitor who enters and exits their home. Some smart locks also have voice recognition features that allow the user to control the lock with voice commands.
