Why Are Smart Locks So Great?
The benefits of having a smart lock outweigh any reason not to have one. There are pros and cons of both smart and traditional locks, but there’s one advantage that lets digital locks take the cake. A safe keyless entry.
Fumbling through keys, and often losing them, is one of the best reasons to go digital. Smart locks don’t require keys! Unlock doors directly from a smartphone, or simply dial in whatever memorable number was chosen as an unlock code.
Businesses with multiple employees who open and close the building don’t need to worry about buying multiple keys. The days of employees losing keys have come and gone too, just go digital. Likewise, households with multiple residents/roommates don’t have to worry about making a key for everyone. Never get locked out again!
“But then everyone knows the code for my business/house even when they leave!” Not so. The convenience of smart locks goes even farther. Simply change the code whenever it’s needed. Old employee? No problem. Crazy ex roommate? Not an issue. It’s as easy as changing the password to an online account.
Airbnb, VRBO and other rental homes also benefit from keyless entries. House managers and owners only need to send visitors the lock code upon arrival. When the vacation is over, the code can simply be changed after their check out time. Keyless entries ensure a safe solution for guests to come and go when they’re permitted to.
The second best thing about smart locks is their universalism. They're keyless, but for people who are more traditional, they can also include a keyhole. For example, the Schlage digital lock We Are More recently installed is pictured above. It has a keypad for keyless locking and unlocking as well as a keyhole. No matter how many times the code needs to be changed, the owner of this property will always have a key.
