What Is A Smart Lock?

We are all looking for ways to keep our homes and families secure. Before you invest in a top-of-the-line security system, have you considered the way you lock your front door? If you are thinking about getting a new Smart door locking system, then a smart lock might be for you. Read on to find out more.

What Is A Smart Lock?

So, before you look at investing in a smart lock, you need to understand it. A smart lock is an electronic lock for your front door. This will replace your traditional lock, and you can use the highly secure Apple app to connect via Bluetooth - so you can use your smartphone to unlock your door.

Do You Need A Key?

Smart locks eliminate the need for a traditional, physical key. This allows you to use your smartphone or Bluetooth device to enter your home with a simple connection. No more worrying about where your keys are, or having to hide a spare one under your doormat – entrance to your home is as simple as tapping your phone. And on top of all this, you can even still use a manual key if you want!

Easy Access For Guests

Have you ever had a guest arrive at your house when you are away? If you wanted to let them in, you were out of luck! Another excellent feature of a smart lock is that you can allow your guests to enter even when you aren’t home using your Apple device. If you purchased the Avia keypad, they can enter using a code you provide. So you won’t have to worry about hiding a key under a plant pot and increasing security risks.

Added Security Features

For further security, some smart locks have extra features. These can include apple notifications, pop-ups on your phone to alert you to changes in lock status such as unlocked or locked.

 Stay Updated

Not only do composite door smart locks give your home that little security boost, but you can also feel even more secure by viewing a log of activity. You will be able to see when your door has been locked and get notifications, including who entered your home and at what time. This gives you 24/7 peace of mind that your home is safe and protected when you’re out or away.

Something To Keep In Mind

Whilst Multipoint locking doors are the most popular and secure, not all doors are fitted with them. So keep the kind of door you have in mind when considering purchasing one. Avia works on multipoint doors where the handle is lifted to engage the security bolts. If you are unsure, try our compatibility checker on the site to confirm Avia will work with your door.
