What exactly are Smart Locks?
Smart Locks give homeowners an easy, efficient way to make access their homes without managing multiple sets of keys. They are technologically on-trend, fitting in with people's growing reliance on their smartphones to manage different aspects of their lives.
There are many advantages to smart locks, such as the ability to unlock the front door when you are getting close to your home, or granting access to multiple family members, or giving guests the opportunity to come and go as they please. Homeowners are always in control of who can access a home using the smart lock.
Utilizing Bluetooth technology, smart locks communicate with your phone to control the locks at your house. The Bluetooth sends a signal to unlock the door, providing you the control over who can access the house. Smart locks are yet another awesome advance in home security, made possible by technology.
Will my existing cylinder or deadbolt work with my new smart lock?
Usually, the answer is yes. In fact, most of the smart locks available now are created to work with current deadbolts and cylinders. There are a few instances in which this is not true, but most of the most commonly sold smart locks will use the exiting deadbolts on a door.
If your home does not have an integrated lock, but does have a separate deadbolt and handle, then We can retrofit the lock so your new smart lock works with it.
In most cases, our locksmiths have determined that the existing door will work with a new smart lock, and we didn't have to make any serious changes.
No matter what the current specifications, Our locksmiths work hard to implement the solution that works best for you. Our trustworthy locksmiths will let you know if we have to make any alterations in order for the smart lock to properly work on your home. We like to point out that smart locks function best with deadbolts, so homes that have integrated locks and handles, or have mortise and rim cylinder locks, will likely require some modifications.

Can I operate the lock with my phone?
Yes. There are many models that offer another form of access just in case the smart locks stop working for any reason. Sometimes the batteries fail, and we don't want you to be locked out of your home.
That's why we often recommend one of the smart lock packages that also provide a keyed entry alternative. These avoid any distress should the smart lock be temporarily unavailable. It's a great option to consider when you make the decision about which smart lock you want to install.
Using your phone helps make the process of locking and unlocking your door so much simpler. And because they replace the traditional key locking systems, you avoid the downfalls of those systems – like broken or lost keys that can cause problems.
Are your locksmiths qualified to install smart locks?
We're proud to say yes. Our locksmiths are highly trained in professional smart lock installation.
Career locksmiths like ours are continually updating their skills so they are highly capable with new and changing technology. Plus, manufacturers provide specific instructions, so our technicians can solve any problems that might arise. Our locksmiths perform smart lock installation services all the time, so they are prepared to handle any installation.
Will installation damage my door?
No. We take great care in the installation process to preserve the integrity of your door. Because we most often use the deadbolts already installed on your door, there is not damage to the door. In the event you do now have a deadbolt, we will professionally install one to make sure the smart lock installation is seamless.
Our priority is your satisfaction, and we will not compromise your door during our installation. If you happen to have a separately installed deadbolt along with a separate handle/knob, we will likely h have to take out the knob set. Again, all this depends on your precise situations, as well as the type of smart lock you purchase.
How long does will the installation take?
The installation time for smart locks varies depending upon the type of smart lock that the homeowner wishes to install, and also on the type of the lock that the homeowner already has in place. It's much quicker if you already have a Grade 1 deadbolt in place, because the new smart lock just has to be incorporated into the existing deadbolt.
The time is shorter if you have a Grade 1 deadbolt already installed on your door. That means the new smart lock simply has to be incorporated into the deadbolt. It will take a little bit longer if you do not have a deadbolt, as we will have to install one for the smart lock to operate.
Smart locks is an innovative technology, but they will not become outmoded in the near future. We feel confident they are right choice for many of our customers. It's good to know that while they highly efficient, the reason most people enjoy smart locks is for the connectivity and efficiency. (They do not necessarily make the lock more secure.)
Is a smart lock right for your home?
Smart locks are a new technology which is rapidly gaining popularity, and will likely continue to evolve. But even if they are not the final locks of the future, they are, without doubt, a groundbreaking and innovative technology. Many of the models we service and install focus on efficiency and connectivity, rather than providing a more secure mechanism or increasing your home security.
Most of the customers who choose smart locks appreciate the ease with which they work and the flexibility they provide to homeowners and families.
What are Smart Locks?
Smart Locks were created as a way to make homes safer and home security more efficient to manage. With people increasingly using technology in their lives, the addition of smart locks is one more way to simplify your life and integrate your home security with the rest of your technological advances. They offer many perks to homeowners, like being able to unlock the front door when you are nearby, or allowing you to offer guests temporary access to your home. The homeowner always has control over who can use the smart lock to access the property.
Other positive things about a smart lock are that you can unlock your front door as you near your home, and you can give guests access to your home while they are staying with you.
