What Are Smart Locks?
Smart locks are battery-powered electronic locking systems that can be controlled via a keypad on the deadbolt, or your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth technology. Some smart locks use Z-wave or Wi-Fi which requires an internet-connect hub, but most will use Bluetooth as the standard which will not require a separate hub.
Most smart locks allow users to store multiple unique access codes so you can assign a unique code to each person accessing your home or business. Authorized users can then open the door by entering a PIN code into the smart lock’s keypad, or by entering a PIN code into an app on their smartphone, or even by waving their authorized smartphone over the deadbolt (with Bluetooth turned on). Some Smart Lock systems can even be integrated into a Smart Home system so you can control your door locks along with your thermostats, lights, and speakers all from the same hub.
