What Are the Benefits of Alexa-Controlled Locks?
Now that you have access to Alexa, you may be wondering what are some of the benefits of installing a smart lock in your home? I am glad you asked.
First and foremost, a lock needs to protect your home from uninvited guests. Smart locks are ideal protection because instead of having a keyhole which thieves can pick, smart locks use highly encrypted digital access codes which is almost impossible to crack. In addition to helping to foil thieves, you will never worry about forgetting to lock your door since a smart lock allows you to lock and unlock your doors remotely giving you peace of mind. Installing an Alexa-controlled lock on your door will even allow you to let in a family member or guest without having to be at home. You can even provide workers access to your house without giving them a key.
Smart locks are a great choice for everyone but are particularly useful for seniors and disabled people. No longer will they need to fumble for their keys or struggle to open the door. When you combine a smart door lock with a wifi-enabled security camera, you can see who is at the door before unlocking it from anywhere in your home.
