The purpose of a lock is universal – to protect our most prized and precious belongings. This includes our family, our possessions, and any other items within a structure that we hold valuable and dear to our hearts. However, the best smart lock for you may depend on the door you are wanting to install the lock on, as well as the individuals who you expect to walk through it. A smart lock provides individuals with both safety and convenience, so, for your convenience, here are five of the top smart locks on the market today.
This smart lock is the latest and smallest version of the August brand. This lock comes with Wi-Fi built directly into it which removes the need for a separate Connect Bridge. Additionally, this lock fits over your home’s existing single-cylinder deadbolt hardware and allows homeowners to still use their keys if they so desire. Another cool feature of this lock is its ability to sense your smartphone approaching the door and automatically unlock itself for you. This lock can also be set to automatically lock whenever you leave, as well. The August app is downloadable to your phone or Apple Watch and allows you to lock or unlock it remotely. The lock also works with Amazon Alexa, Apple’s Sir, and Google Assistant.
This smart lock is quite convenient for individuals who rent out spaces using a service such as Airbnb. The lock is coded which means that any guests or visitors to the rental will receive a code that allows them entry only during the duration of their stay. No need for a key or the downloading of an app, they will come and go just fine without either. The physical buttons on the Ultraloq U-Bolt Pro reportedly work regardless of weather conditions and whether or not the user is wearing gloves. This lock can also be synced with Alexa or Google Assistant for voice commands.
The August Smart Lock and Connect are easy enough to install on your own and fit over existing deadbolt locks. This makes it quite convenient for renters who may not be able to switch out existing deadbolts. The lock can also be paired with your home network via the August Connect Wi-Fi bridge. Once paired, this version of the August lock becomes compatible with voice control services such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant. The August mobile app also offers users the same great remote access features.
This fingerprint lock is simple and straightforward with built-in Wi-Fi that removes the need for any additional hub hardware. This lock can also store up to 100 fingerprints (or 50 users) which allows for easy sharing of access with trusted family members or friends when necessary. Homeowners simply install the lock, pair it with their network, and enjoy voice controls via Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa.
The Wyze Lock comes with a retrofit design that allows it to work with any existing deadbolts and keys. With a simple design and easy enough to install, this lock has tested well with customers looking to keep their locking needs simple but safe, as well as their budgets, as this lock is somewhat less expensive than some of the others.
