Smart Lock Installation Service
What are Smart Locks and who would benefit from having one installed??
A Smart lock replaces your current lock or cylinder and can be locked and unlocked from your phone remotely or via a keypad when a code is entered.
You could say Smart Locks are the Access control of a home or business and I think it’s safe to say the future in the locks which we’ll all have one day.
The technology has come on leaps and bounds in the same way all technology improves and progresses. Some of this is in line with how we use our Smart Phones in today’s world.
The current Smart Lock can work on most doors without too many changes, but UPVC and composite doors are well suited to Smart Locks. Other types of doors can have Smart Locks fitted but may require more adaptations.
Even though they are Smart and do ‘unlock & lock’ the door you are still required to manually open the door i.e. use the handle, in essence the Smart Lock takes away the role of the key.
Anyone may benefit from having a Smart Lock on their house, home or business but there are particular people for who a Smart Lock could make life a lot easier and take away some of their problems!
Use a lock box at your Airbnb/holiday let? Get a Smart Lock
If you have a holiday let or Air BnB for example a Smart Lock would allow you to give your client access to the property without the need for you to actually be there.
You can give them access via the Smart phone app for a set period of time in line with their stay and then remove them from the list via the app on your phone again.
You can also do the same with a pin code which will be specific to them and the period of their stay. No more keys being inadvertently taken home and posted back or worst still, lost completely.
In the same way if you or a relative has careers that need access to a house or home this can be done from the app on a phone as already described.
