Top 3 Reasons Your Home Needs Smart Locks
Have you ever rushed out of your house to get to work, only to realize hours later that your house keys were still inside? Or have you been on vacation and needed a family member to take care of your pets, and had to pay to have an extra key made?
With smart locks, you can banish both of these scenarios from your life for good. Here are the top 3 reasons your home needs smart locks:
Smart locks remove the need for a physical set of keys. This prevents any future lockouts and eliminates the need to make physical copies for family and friends. Not to mention, you’ll never have to search for your keys again. Smart locks allow you to have one less thing to carry around at all times and reduces the risk of your house keys falling into the wrong hands.
If you’re caught out of town and need a trusted individual to check in on your home, belongings, or pets, simply let them in with a code or push access from your smartphone. It’s also worth mentioning that it is much quicker, cheaper, and easier to change a code on your electronic smart lock than it is to replace your traditional locks. The modern convenience of smart locks alone is worth the investment.
If you combine your smart locks with smart doorbells or cameras, you can visually identify who is at your door via your smartphone app. Whether you’re upstairs folding laundry or at work, you can rest assured that you’ll never miss someone knocking at your door.
With some cameras, you can even hold two-way conversations via a digital microphone and speaker. This is especially beneficial when you are expecting a package delivery. When a delivery person rings the doorbell, you can audibly direct them where to place your package instead of just leaving it on your front doorstep where neighbors and passersby can easily see it.
Immediate Security Alerts
Some smart locks even have built-in security alarms to provide an addition layer of security in case your smart locks are tampered with. This is automatically monitored, you get a push notification on your smartphone alerting you. You can immediately alert the authorities, minimizing the chances that you’ll return home to an unfortunate surprise.
Just think, with smart locks, you won’t have to worry about someone picking a lock to break into your home while you’re away. The peace of mind in knowing your home is monitored 24/7 is priceless.
