We mentioned in our earlier blog how we are sacrificing security to save time. Out of all the smart home devices this one probably makes you the most nervous. Us too! But unlocking convenience and more #Time is irresistible. Especially after researching the probabilities of risk. Losing internet or exhausted batteries seem like the only drain. Here are 5 Smart Lock facts.
The recurring subject, time. We cant stop being obsessed with it, what else is there? There is no feeling that compares to losing your keys, unless you lost your smart phone. Unfortunately there is no cure for that cold feeling of a missing communicator, but a WiFi door lock can certainly unlock the inconvenience of being left out in the cold.
Need to let in... the babysitter? Cleaning service? Kids after school? Package delivery? Cable service? I bet your beginning to see how this device can buy you time. Anytime, anywhere, your the key master.
Home or office it is a definite bonus to know who and when someone opened a specific door. Having
individual "Key" codes are a great asset for accountability. They can document a road map of traffic through a certain entry way should an issue arise. (Be sure to combine with a security camera for the best results)
4. No Inventory
Eliminating clutter is always refreshing, less keys, less hassle. I can take a general inventory of who has keys to my front door. Family and choice neighbors, but are they in their possession? Ill never know until it may be too late.
Sleek, modern and intimidating. There are plenty of Smart Lock manufactures with their own style and look. Some with a keypad or touchscreen while others are extremely refined. Either way we only recommend one that has a no hassle entry when there is no power or WiFi.
We also recommend having a professional install this. They are not as easy to install as some manufacturers suggest they may be. Getting halfway done and leaving it for later or tomorrow is not an option.
