How Do Smart Door Locks Work?

There are two ways you can integrate a smart door lock into your Lake Norman, North Carolina home:

Smart Door Locks1.  Add a Smart Lock On Top of Your Pre-Existing Deadbolt– The big advantage of retrofitting a smart door lock is that you don’t need to replace your entire deadbolt system and you can keep your physical keys. Smart door locks can communicate directly with your mobile devices to let you check in and operate your smart lock manually for your convenience. You can lock and unlock your door from anywhere.

2.  Replace Your Lock with a Digital Smart Lock- Completely replacing your deadbolt with digital smart locks gives you more options when connecting to a smart home monitoring system. While all smart door locks can be remotely operated from your smart phone, the digital smart door locks can connect through a smart hub or home controller, which can orchestrate environments automatically to your lifestyle. Do you normally come home around 6:30 pm? Your smart door lock can automatically unlock the door for you and lock it once you get in the house. Furthermore, your smart door lock system can send you notifications directly to your phone or tablet if your door has been opened when it should be closed.

Smart door locks are the little engines that could. They serve so many very useful purposes beyond locking and unlocking your door. Instead of feeling uneasy about whom you loan your key out to, with a smart door lock, you can create a virtual key that acts as a digital home entry permission slip to anyone who need to be let into your home when you’re not there. Only want the housekeeper to have access to the house between 10 and 11am on a Monday? No problem with a smart door lock.
