So, what are smart locks? Smart locks are locks that use technology to unlock your door without the need for a physical key.

Smart locks come in a variety of forms. Some smart locks have an electronic key pad where you enter a code to unlock your door. Other smart locks use key cards or fobs. Some smart locks let you use your fingerprint to unlock the door. And still, other smart locks allow you to unlock your door using an app on your phone. This sort of technology can also be used to alert you when your door has been locked or unlocked or when you need to replace your batteries. Some even give you the option to unlock your door remotely!
Even though smart locks remove the need for keys, you can still use traditional keys to unlock them in case there is a glitch in the technology.

If you want to stay up to date with the changing home security technology, or if you want to ensure that you and your family members don’t have to worry about getting locked out, then smart locks are a great choice for you. For more information on smart locks, visit familyhandman.com.
