Things to consider when getting Smart locks for your Smart Home

Convenience is important, but security is fundamental. There are several things that you would need to consider before making the switch to smart locks in order to keep you smart home both trendy and safe.

Safety first

The concept of a traditional lock & key system instills a feeling of safety when it comes to securing your home. Keys and deadbolts and other locks have been around for hundreds of years and for the most part they are secure.

The very fact that new technology isn’t necessarily as well-trusted as traditional methods encourages developers to ensure the highest level of safety and security.

Compatibility with Current Locks

The type of deadbolt you already have in place and whether a smart lock should fit over it or replace it entirely is something you will need to consider. Many smart locks developed for sale in North America and Europe are not compatible with locks and deadbolts used in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. Therefore smart locks purchased online that fit over existing locks will not work within Asia.

Are you Tech-Savvy?

Most of us won’t have much trouble operating a set of keys (most of the time that is), however the less technologically inclined members of your family may not enjoy Wi-Fi enabled locks you operate from your iPhone. If your Mum is still having difficulty learning how to text then maybe smart locks wouldn’t be ideal for her.

Adding Wow Factor

Whether you’re looking to impress guests, rent out your smart home or increase your asking price when you choose to sell it, smart locks will inevitably be an added value feature. It will be the first thing people see when they walk to your door and will always be a great conversation starter.
