Are you considering smart door locks in your home? As dedicated locksmiths in Durham, NC, Chapel Hill, NC, and surrounding areas, we get a lot of questions about smart door locks. At A1 Lock and Safe, we not only help you get your keys out of your car but can help you outfit your home with traditional and smart locks and safes. With that expertise in mind, here are 3 things you need to know about smart door locks.

1. Forget Keys

With electronic keypads, key cards and fobs, fingerprint scanners and smartphone technology, you never have to worry about frantically searching for a house key while carrying tons of groceries. Some smart locks will let you open a door via a smartphone app when you’re away from your home, so you can let in anyone who needs to get in.

2. Get Helpful Activity Alerts

Smartphones can actually both unlock doors and track who is entering your home. Thanks to apps that work with your smart lock via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you will be able to see who’s coming to and leaving your house. Some will even allow you to send virtual keys to other people.

3. Customized It For Your Home

Of course, locks not only need to keep your home protected but also match your outdoor decor.If you’re worried that a brand new smart lock won’t match the rest of your door, never fear. You’ll find that there are a variety of colors and metallic finishes to match your doorway.
