Smart Locks For Your Apartment

A fob, keypad, wireless app, or even biometrics are frequently used to power today's locking systems. Wi-Fi or Bluetooth-enabled smart locks are the newest and most sophisticated smart locks on the market. That's a long way from the old-fashioned keys and tumbler locks. Depending on the type of lock, smart locks function in a variety of ways. Here's a list of the many versions available.


Although not ideal for germaphobes, biometric locks are extremely handy because all you need is your finger to operate them. There's no need to be concerned about losing a key, code, or phone because most of us have them with us all the time. Some versions even have the capability of storing up to 100 fingerprints.

To work, keypad locks require a pre-programmed pin number. The administrator can assign numerous pins to various persons, and users can change their pins at any time. Some of these locks include buttons, but the more recent models have sleek touch displays. RFID locks are far more common at work, but they're still worth noting. To unlock the door, RFID locks require a keycard or fob. When you approach a Bluetooth lock, the lock immediately disables due to the use of Bluetooth technology.

You don't even have to be close to the lock for it to function. Wi-Fi-enabled locks may be locked or unlocked using an app from anywhere on the globe. They also collect a variety of information, such as who is opening and closing the door at any particular time.

With every sort of lock, there's a danger, so it's only logical to question if smart locks are safe. With a bump key, even conventional tumbler locks may be picked quite readily. Because smart locks aren't as easy to pick as ordinary locks, they're more physically secure. Many models will also disable if the wrong code is entered too many times, leaving would-be burglars in the dark.
