5 Best Smart Locks for Your Home

Kwikset KevoSmart door locks are arguably one of the nicest of smart home comforts. They can automatically detect your presence via the Bluetooth connection in your smartphone (or a Bluetooth keyfob) and unlock your front door for you. They let you send electronic keys to your friends that work only during times that you specify. Some will even connect to your larger home automation system, telling your smart thermostat when you’re away so it can enter its energy-saving mode. And did I mention they all look really cool and futuristic, and tend to get a lot of compliments from guests?

If you’re considering buying a smart door lock, you should first know your options. There are two main types available: locks that connect to your home Internet connection via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-only locks.August Smart Door Lock Wi-Fi locks offer more functions (like being able to see whether your door is locked in real time), but are inherently less safe because they’re always connected to the Internet. Bluetooth-only locks offer more security, but at the expense of features. Bluetooth also tends to cause a lot of minor but annoying lag in the unlocking process.

Armed with that basic knowledge, you’re ready to go shopping. Our staff at Techlicious has rounded up the most popular and intriguing smart door locks that are currently available, and a few that will be available soon.Kwikset Kevo Locks Take a look, and see which one of these cool high-tech locks is right for your family’s home.
