You can stop leaving your key under the doormat because the days of making copies of your keys are over. Electronic locks or smart locks are becoming more and more popular in the home. Electronic locks have been used in commercial buildings for years. For Americans, it’s all about convenience and gadgets, and now homeowners are discovering the benefits of using electronic locks in the home.
With electronic locks, you can do away with the conventional key. Instead your smart phone activates the deadbolt lock when you approach the door. There are many different styles of electronic locks, from keypads to mobile device controlled systems, and the latest models have proven themselves reliable and extremely secure.
Here are the 5 top benefits to switching to electronic lock for your home:
1) It’s a hassle free way to give welcome guests access to your home.
No need to worry about getting keys back from guests or renters. For those impromptu visits from friends, family, or guests you can unlock the door remotely with your smart phone while you are away.
2) Setup unique user codes for everyone that needs access.
You can give each person a unique code and even specify days and times when the recipient can enter. Electronic locks let you manage access for houseguests and home services such as housekeepers, dog walkers, contractors, babysitters, and short-term renters.
3) Know exactly who is accessing your property and when a visitor arrives and leaves.
Electronic locks keep a log of all the entries and exits, so you can see which authorized person has been in your home and when.
4) No giving out keys and no locksmiths.
You can easily and securely send access to your home to anyone with a supported smart phone or give them a one-time use code to punch in. Stop worrying about getting the keys back later. You can easily cancel or change access for key recipients at anytime, even remotely.
5) Stop turning back to make sure the doors are locked.
With a networked smart lock, you can remotely secure your home and get real-time alerts of any activity.
And, if you are worried about security, digital keys are encrypted using bank-level encryption and cannot be transferred, stolen, or copied like a mechanical key can. For backup, the lock also operates with a conventional key by pulling back the digital display to reveal the keyhole.
