Improving Home Security and Accessibility with a Smart Lock

residential smart lockA smart lock is a special type of lock for the front door that does not require a traditional key. Instead, a homeowner uses simple controls in order to both lock and unlock the front door. The smart lock is installed to the inside of the door and can come with many different features. Here are some of the ways you can improve your home security and accessibility with a smart lock.

Improved Home Security

The main advantage of a smart lock is that it will improve home security. You can program a smart lock system with a multi-digit code. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about losing the key to your home. Another safety advantage is that you don’t have to spend a few minutes rummaging through your purse or bag in order to get your keys. The time you spend looking for your keys leaves you vulnerable to criminals who may sneak up behind you. You also don’t have to worry about potential invaders picking the lock to your front door with a smart lock. Traditional locks are becoming increasingly easy to pick and break, especially because criminals are continuously coming up with more clever techniques.

It is also possible to integrate your smart lock with Goldy Locks’ security, fire, CCTV, and building management for enhanced home security. Our security system will help you watch your doors with smart locks.

Compatible with Home Automation System

Most smart locks are compatible with home automation systems, which allow you to control various features of your home. Such smart locks tend to have many different features. For example, you can set a chain reaction interaction between the smart lock and the home automation system. You can change the settings so that the thermostat rises as soon as the smart lock is unlocked. It is also possible to have certain lights in your home turn on automatically as soon as you unlock the smart lock on the front door. Therefore, not only will a smart lock improve home security, but it can also simplify your life substantially.

Increases Accessibility

Yet another reason why you should get a smart lock is because it will increase the accessibility of your home for your family. If you’ve ever tried to open your front door with a traditional lock while juggling groceries, you know hard this task can be. This is especially true if you’re coming home at night in the dark, or if you have to rummage through your bag or purse for your keys. With a smart lock, you will only have to punch a few keys to gain easy access to your home. Best of all, while a smart lock will increase accessibility for you, it will significantly reduce your home’s accessibility for criminals.

As you can see, there are many ways in which a keyless entry for home can improve home security and accessibility. If you would like to have a residential smart lock installed at your residence, contact us for more information.
