I had first seen a smart door locking system at a friend’s housewarming party. When I renovated my house, I too got a smart door lock installed. It is genuinely a revolutionary upgrade that redefines home security. Trust me, I have been using it for two years now.

I would say that a smart door lock system is an advanced security solution that replaces the conventional doorknob and key with a digitally controlled locking mechanism. And rightly so, because this innovative system offers many benefits, 

Smart Door Lock Features

Smart door locks are a success because of their enhanced security features. Here are a few features that stood out for me;

  1. Multiple unlocking methods, including fingerprint recognition, smartphone app access, and voice commands. We can literally choose the most secure and convenient option for our needs.

  2. I also feel that smart door locks offer a level of convenience and control that traditional locks simply cannot match. With the ability to grant access remotely, we can let in trusted guests or service providers even when we're not home.

  3. And the best part about smart door locks is that they provide real-time notifications whenever someone enters or exits your home, keeping you informed and in control. This feature is particularly beneficial for monitoring babysitters, pet sitters, or even family members who come and go at different times.

Like me, you can also customize the system to fit your unique needs and preferences, setting access codes, granting temporary permissions, and even scheduling access for specific times.

I hope my answer helps you in getting a grasp of what is a smart door lock.

How do smart door lock works?

Smart locks, which don't require a physical key to operate, let you open your door without it. A smartphone app can be used to remotely operate them. Several designs have a lock-mounted numeric keypad where a special access code can be entered. A smart lock can be controlled by a code or smartphone command by connecting to the WiFi network in your home.

Why you should choose a smart lock?

  • Your smartphone serves as both your key and lock with a smart lock. No need to get home quickly to welcome visitors or a delivery person at the door; just log into your app from wherever you are and unlock your front door.

  • You'll enjoy the keyless capability that enables you to unlock your door with a simple code. No key is needed if you've ever stood at your front door while searching through your luggage for your keys.

  • Making duplicates of your key for everyone is no longer necessary with smart locks. Also, this is considerably safer for preventing future thefts than having many copies of your house key lying around.

This is all you need to know about the digital door lock.

A traditional door lock is an object which is only made for a single key, whereas a smart digital lock can be controlled and managed with other "smarter" technology such as Wifi or Bluetooth. These locks can also connect with other devices such as your smartphone, where you can access the lock's app and manage your home security with ease. Like any other door lock, digital locks also use a latch or a bolt, which runs from the door and the doorframe to prevent access.
