Have you ever went out to dinner or to a movie with friends and second-guessed yourself on whether you locked your door? You may have already been in your bed drifting to sleep, but suddenly woke up and wondered whether you locked your door. Have you ever lost your keys or had them stolen and had to change out your locks? Perhaps you have experienced like many other a time where the door was locked, you were outside and the door shut; locking you out of your house. You might have had to break into your own home, or wait for someone with an extra set of keys to let you in. If the above scenarios have happened or still could happen, then you are living in the past where keys were important.
Today, new technology allows for the opportunity for us to have more control over the entrances to our home. Through smart lock, there is no need for keys. The locks are completely powered with a dial pad that can be reached from a smart phone. Essentially this means, no matter where you are, you can have access to your home as long as you have internet. You can be laying in bed, and lock or unlock all doors in your house, you may be out to dinner and think is my door locked? You can lock your door just by reaching for you phone and giving a command. Even better, you can have the door always locked and only those who can enter either have to have a code, or someone within the home must open the door or unlock it with the opener or your phone.
Essentially, you have more control and only you can give codes to people to enter the house. They can’t be duplicated and if people learn the code, you simply change the code. With the smart lock, you can even program your phone to alert you when people enter the house. If you give different codes to people such as your children, you then can monitor when they come into your house, right from the bedroom or even if you are at work. Essentially, this system takes you out of the past and right into the future of technology.
The smart lock also offers additional security apart from locking all doors, and monitoring the home. There is a technique known as lock bump, which is a special key that can be used in dead bolt locks to open the door. Utilizing the smart lock system, there are no keys involved, therefore lock bumping is not possible, further securing your home from intruders.
Another form of control the smart lock offers to people is emergency control. Do you have an elderly person in a home who might fall frequently, or someone who could be employed in a position, where someone might attack for revenge? If so, the smart lock may also help in this regard. Many times, emergency responders will walk the perimeter of the home looking for a break in, before entering. Then, they will break down the door. If something happens within the home, such as someone falling or a sickly person, or perhaps someone thought an intruder was breaking in, the locks may be unlocked from within the house or through the internet or smart phone, so doors don’t have to be broken down and there is easy access for emergency personnel.
The smart lock transforms our lives into the future. They offer us more control over our homes as well as make us live more comfortable without fear of possible situations. The time has come to turn in our keys, move into the 21st century, and engage in the technologies available. Smart locks is the answer for peace of mind and additional security over the home.
