Keyless entry door locks are an innovation in smart home technology.
Put simply, a smart door lock is a lock for the door of your home, office, restaurant or other establishment. It allows and prevents access just like the door lock you currently use. However, the smart door lock means that the lock can be controlled over the Internet via an app, using computer, tablet or mobile phone.
This Internet control of physical items in the home such as doors, lights, alarm systems, heating systems, kitchen appliances is part of a digital revolution happening right now know as the Internet of Things (IOT).
The advantages of this technology may not be immediately obvious.
It is easy to think “My door is opened or locked using my key, why would I want anything else”? Well, what about all those times you had to take a day off from work to accept a parcel delivery, or had friends arrive at your home for a social meetup when you were stuck in traffic and they had to wait for you. Or your husband/wife called you at work saying that they had forgotten to take the spare set of keys and so are locked out. In all of these instances, a Smart door lock would solve the problem with just a few button presses on the app. So leave the historical use of locks behind and upgrade your home security and your life.
Many large manufacturing companies such as Xiaomi and Conexis have started to offer these smart door lock products so this is for sure going to be a growth market.
