How Does it Work?
Honeywell smart locks have a numerical keypad that lets you unlock the door with a personalized code instead of a physical key. You can create a code for each member of your family, and even temporary codes for guests. The smart lock connects to your smartphone or any other wireless device, allowing you to open and close it at any time. So if your partner forgets his or her code, all you have to do is open the door using your phone.
With smart locks, you can also keep track of who comes and goes. You’ll get an alert when someone unlocks the door, like your son coming home from school, or a babysitter who arrives to watch your kids.
Honeywell locks can connect to Control4 systems, so you can add lock settings to your favorite scenes including “Good Morning”, “Goodnight” and “Away”. For example, press “Away” on your touchpad and all of your doors will lock, the alarm will turn on and your thermostat will go into an energy-saving mode.
Gates and Garages
An integrator can connect your front gate to the house so you can easily let people in and out—whether you’re at home or not. You’ll get an instant notification on your phone that someone is at the gate, and then you can press a button to open it. If you don’t know who it is, use the intercom system to speak to the person, or get a good look at them using a surveillance camera.
About 70 percent of Americans use the garage door as their primary entrance. If you are one of those people, you should definitely consider automating it. The fact is, garage doors are easy to leave open by accident. Since many garages only have remotes that work a few feet from the home, you’d have to drive all the way back in order to close it. A smart garage door opener connected to a security system addresses this issue. Just like with the other smart locks, you’ll get a notification if it’s left open and you can close it any time and from anywhere. If you want to know what’s going on at all times, you can even get notifications every time the garage door closes or opens (helpful for parents of teens who may try to take the car out late at night).
Video Doorbell Integration
The smart locks we install can also become a part of a smart front door solution. It will allow you to visually verify every person who comes to your front door and let them in easily whether you are right there or in another state. As soon as the doorbell rings, you can see who is there using a surveillance camera with a live video feed and then press a button to welcome them inside. HD intercom systems also allow you to have a conversation with the person. So if it’s FedEx dropping off a package, you can tell them to leave it there or come back tomorrow.
