A smart lock is an essential part of a truly smart, connected home. Not only do these smart locks allow you to come and go as you please, but they will also help you monitor who enters and leaves your home while you are away. One of the first factors you will need to consider before buying a smart lock is the cost.
After all, a smart lock costs a lot more than the standard-issue lock you can find at any local hardware store. Many of these smart locks offer a mobile app that lets you lock and unlock doors with an icon you can tap right away. Some offer a web app that allows you to control things from either your desktop or laptop PC. Moreover, most of these apps let you even add temporary and permanent users and set access schedules for specific times and days.
