Although the concept of a “smart home”, has been around for some time, it has only become a reality in recent years. Smart locks are one of the most prominent examples. These locks connect wirelessly to your smartphone via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or other wireless technology. You can then control them using an app. These locks are convenient, secure, and provide a variety of features that traditional locks cannot match. We’ll be taking a closer look at smart locks, their operation, and some of the unique features that make them so attractive.
What is Smart Locking?
Smart locks are electronic locks that can be remotely controlled using a smartphone or another device. These locks connect to a wireless network such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and can be controlled remotely using an app on your smartphone. You can lock and unlock your doors with just a touch of a button. You can also set up custom rules to make your door lock lock when you return home or lock when you leave.
How smart locks work
Smart locks connect wirelessly to your smartphone or any other device using wireless technology. You will need to connect your smart lock to your Wi-Fi network. You can control your smart lock using an app from your smartphone once it is connected. Many smart locks use Bluetooth to allow you to control them even when you aren’t connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
Simply open the app on the phone to unlock or lock your door. Smart locks may also have a touchpad or keypad that allows you to use a code to unlock your door.
