The combination of automation and home security is something we as consumers have been waiting on for a long time. Automated door locks have been around for a little while, however with the home automation boom they are starting to take off in a big way.
Automated door locks aren’t just a fad either. They’re part of the next generation of home automation. Here are a few reasons why you need automated door locks.
Imagine a world where you don’t have to carry a key. Any key. Smart automobiles are moving increasingly towards push button starters and even padlocks are exploring keyless designs. Automated door locks for your home are no different.
A world where “I forgot my key” is a phrase of the past is just around the corner. Automated door locks are the next step in home security and smart home technology. Ditch the keyring.
Smart Locks, Smart Apps
Gone are the days where you sit in your office wondering if you remembered to lock the door earlier that morning. Automated locking systems are accessible from a mobile app. Whether you’re miles away at the office or lying in bed upstairs you can lock or unlock the doors from anywhere with the touch of a button.
This can also serve as a huge time saver if you’re expecting company. Having the ability to lock and unlock your doors while you’re not home means that you can let in repair personnel or contractors when they arrive on site and you don’t have to give them a spare key!
Tracking Entry and Exit
A secret benefit of the automated door locking world is that most systems give you the ability to review when people have arrived and departed. For instance, if you’re expecting your teenager home no later than their 11pm curfew, you can check the system the next morning to see what time they arrived home (sorry kids).
This is also a wonderful tool if you have contractors in your home who you’re paying by the hour. By giving them their own unique temporary access code, you can see what time they entered your home, and what time they locked the door behind them, giving you all the information you need to make sure you’re not being swindled!
Safe and Secure
Automated door locks are not only practical and easy to use; they’re also safe. Using modern technology, automated locks are nearly impossible to break or pick. Entry is only possible to those with the password, keycode, or who are granted access by the administrator (you).
Easy Installation and Operation
Installing automated locks should be done by a qualified professional, however it is not a lengthy process. Most installations are completed within a few hours and you will be enjoying keyless entry the same day.
As with any new system, there may be a learning curve involved. However, the biggest problem you’re likely to encounter is spending a few weeks instinctively reaching for your keys.
