Which smart lock is the best choice for your personal situation?

You made up your mind, you want to purchase a smart lock. But how do you figure out which one suits your needs with the variety of options in the European market? Every smart lock has its benefits and downfalls, which we highlight in this article, including the features of each lock. Go through the checklist to gauge which features you find most important in a smart lock!

Checklist

1. How do you want to open the door?

  • Via an app on your phone with Bluetooth (all smart locks can do this)
  • Via an app on your phone remotely (most locks can do this with a Wi-Fi "bridge")
  • Code Access (external code panel or not?)
  • Fingerprint scan (be careful with rain and cannot be created remotely)
  • Remote control (with battery) from tag
  • Traditional key (some smart locks still have a keyhole)

2. Do you want the door to open automatically? The reliability of automatic opening varies considerably per smart lock, do your own research into the differences in advance.
3. What costs should I pay attention to when purchasing a smart lock? Please note, with some locks you still must buy a separate cylinder, bridge, and code panel.
4. How long will the battery last?
5. Do you still want a physical key?
6. Does the smart lock have to be compatible with other smart home products?
