What do Smart Locks do?

It lets you open and lock your door without a key – but there are different mechanisms. All Alarm.com-compatible smart locks, which are built by trusted hardware manufacturers including Kwikset, Yale and Schlage, feature a numerical keypad.

This technology lets you open your door with a four-digit user code, putting an end to lost keys forever and enabling an array of intelligent and useful features.

What defines a smart lock?

  1. Keyless entry: most smart locks feature a numerical keypad, which lets you unlock your door with a four-digit code instead of a physical key. You can create a different code for each member of the family, and also for trusted visitors.
  2. Remote locking: smart locks typically come with their own smartphone app, which enables you to lock and unlock your door remotely from anywhere. If someone forgets their code, it's easy to let them in, even if you're not there.

    If your smart lock is installed as part of a smart home security system, you'll be able to control your lock through your main Alarm.com app, alongside other devices in your home.

  3. 3: Alerts: most smart locks come with the option to send an alert when a specific user opens your door with their code. Alerts are great for keeping tabs on kids after school when you're not there, or for checking that a contractor arrived on time.

What's its role in the Smart Home?

When installed as part of a Smart Home Security system, a smart lock gives you smart access control, awareness of important events, and automated convenience.

Smart access control lets you securely give access to family and trusted visitors, using unique four-digit codes. You can create a code for each of your kids, for your dog walker, or for a contractor who needs access to your house. In the contractor's case, you can add an expiry date so that the code stops working after the job is complete.

Awareness and peace of mind are huge benefits of the Smart Home. Smart access control lets you create alerts that tell you when people unlock the door with their user code. If your kids typically arrive home before you do, you can receive a smartphone alert every day when they unlock the door.

A smart lock can also trigger other devices in your home to act, saving you time and even money. When you lock up in the morning, your smart lock can trigger your security system to arm, your garage door to close, and your lights to turn off. It can even trigger your smart thermostat to set back, saving energy while you're out.
