How to choose right smart lock
A smart lock is necessary in today's busy life, it is convenient, safe, simple to use and affordable. We will start to discuss about the security first, then price and simplicity and points to notice. After there is no perfect product in the market, so you just choose what you need for your case.
Make sure it is tamper-resistant. A smart lock is far less secure than a traditional lock and a key. Most locks can be opened through physical means, so make sure your lock has enough strength to keep out intruders.
Check the warranty. Many smart locks have warranties in place that protect you against breakage or theft, but they don't always work as expected. Always read the fine print before you buy anything with a warranty attached to it!
Check durability and strength of bolt/cylinder mechanism
Check whether your smart deadbolt comes with pre-installed batteries
The cost of your smart lock may depend on the type of lock you choose. For example, some models are more expensive than others because they offer more features or gimmicks that may not be necessary for your needs.
The price will also vary depending on whether you need to have an electrician install the smart deadbolt for you. If not and if you can do it yourself, then the price would be lower than having an electrician do it for you because he/she will get paid for his work as well as his time and effort spent in installing your new lock.
Our Populife deadbolt brands offer a lifetime warranty on our locks while others only offer one year warranty so make sure to check with them before buying one so that there will be no surprises later when something goes wrong with it after purchase or installation by yourself or someone else like an electrician who lives nearby where they live (or even further away)
Our Populife smart deadbolt should be easy to install and use. We’re talking about a lock that secures your home, so you want something that’s simple enough for even the most technologically challenged person around. Some models are too complicated to set up, requiring professional installation and potentially costing hundreds of dollars. Others involve connecting the lock directly to your Wi-Fi network and downloading an app — this can be a problem if you don't have access to reliable internet or don't have time to learn how these types of tech products work. We at Populife have implemented a Non-Wifi smart lock.
Determine the size of your smart lock. Smart locks come in different sizes, and you may need to choose one that's small enough to fit your door or large enough to fit both doors if you have a double-door entryway. Generally, smart locks are larger than traditional ones because they need more space for batteries and other components. However, there are some smaller models (like Schlage Sense), which allow homeowners to save space by consolidating their keys with their new locks.
If you have a double-door entryway or two doors on opposite sides of each other, then you'll need a smart lock that fits both doors—or three or four! Keep this in mind when shopping around so you can pick out the right model before making any purchases: If one is too big or too small then it might prevent access into your home while still being safe from intruders who could break in using brute force against the deadbolt itself.
Make sure you're getting what you really need in a smart lock.
Your first consideration when choosing a lock should be safety. It's important that your smart lock allows you to access your home securely and easily, especially if you live in an area where there are high crime rates.
Smart locks come with built-in security features that can help keep your home safe. They offer things like tamper protection, which alerts you if anyone tries to open the door or take off the deadbolt without using their own passcode or key. You'll also have better control over who has access to your house because most smart locks allow only specific people (or no one at all) access through its app on their phone or tablet.
If you're worried about high crime rates in particular areas of town, it may not be worth investing in a smart lock right now. While they do improve safety by allowing owners more control over who enters their homes and how often they enter them, they aren't hackproof—and while some companies claim otherwise, many don't offer any kind of warranty against hacking attempts made after buying.
