People ask me all the time about the best smart lock for their home. I’m a fan of Schlage locks (and not just because they sponsored the podcast and newsletter a few weeks back) because they are more durable than the Kwikset locks I currently have on my door. That being said, the August locks work well, especially if you like the looks of that lock. August is a different install than a full lock replacement like I did (in the video below) with a Schlage lock. My goal is to show people how easy it is to install a lock and offer a few tips gleaned from my experience. It’s also a nice demo of HomeKit. If you are interested in looking for a locksmith to help with changing your lock, you might want to check out somewhere like Clarks Locksmith Solutions that might be able to shine some light on what is needed to change your locks.
Installing a smart lock can be very beneficial to your home and could be an easier alternative for you to have. However, like with all locks, there could come a time where you misplace a key component for the lock and you are in desperate need to get out of the house or inside. Calling up a locksmith like locksmiths Melbourne or one that is closer to your area, will help you when you need it most.
