Best Smart Door Lock – Our Recommendations
August Smart Lock Pro + Connect, 3rd gen Technology
Our first recommendation would be the August Smart Lock Pro + Connect. This is a smart door lock that works seamlessly with Alexa for voice control. Please bare in mind that the Alexa device is of course sold separately, so make sure you factor this into the cost.
With this door lock, you can control and manage the entry of your door from anywhere in the world. This is great for those who have Airbnb type properties to let their customers inside. It is easy to keep track of who enters and exits your property, which is great from a security point of view.
The technology makes use of “DoorSense”. Only the August smart door lock has DoorSense to tell you if your door is securely closed and locked, to put your mind at rest. With this product, it is possible to keep your existing lock and keys if you prefer. You can simply attach this to your existing deadbolt.
This is a great product, as you door will lock automatically behind you when you leave and unlocks as you approach. For this to work, it requires iOS (9.0 or higher) or Android (5.0 or higher) smartphones. It is possible to install the door lock in under ten minutes – it is that straight forward to do that anyone can do it.
Schlage Z-Wave Connect Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt with Built-In Alarm
Another door lock we would recommend is the Schlage Z-Wave Connect Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt with Built-In Alarm. Like the door lock above, it works well with Alexa for voice control. It features a touch screen keypad and lock cylinder on the exterior. There is a neatly crafted built-in alarm with three different alert settings. For power, it makes use of four AA alkaline batteries. The lock makes use of Z-wave technology to connect to your home automation system and lets you lock or unlock your door remotely using your smartphone. It has a durable and resistive touchscreen with a sleek matte finish to protect against any fingerprints and smudges. Overall, this is one of the best smart door lock products on the market.
