Welcome to the future of home protection! Smart Locks are WiFi or Bluetooth-enabled Smart Home devices that allow you to secure your home without using physical keys. This method of security typically involves the use of a mobile application to lock and unlock doors or deliver virtual ‘keys’ to friends and family members. Smart Locks also enhance home security by giving you 24/7 updates on activity in your home, presenting many options for auto-locking and changing access privileges.

At Coggin Security, we carry a comprehensive range of smart security solutions from Honeywell Home, a proven provider in the home security space. Their smart locks are controlled with a secure app and mobile dashboard that doesn’t just secure your entryways. Honeywell’s smart home security can also be used to control air conditioning, monitor for water leaks, turn lights on and off, and access cameras placed strategically throughout your home’s vulnerable points. With all this in mind, however, the capability to remotely lock or unlock doors tends to be one of the biggest draws for most homeowners.

How Secure are Smart Door Locks?

Smart door locks are, in fact, very secure. These keyless deadbolts are professionally installed by our local Myrtle Beach security technicians and are backed up with cutting edge technology that has been proven to reduce break-ins. Forced entries often result from failing to properly secure the doors around your home. Luckily with smart door locks, you don’t have to worry about improperly secured entry points because you can control them from wherever you are. Secure mobile apps are used as your own personal control center, whenever you need it from wherever you are.

How to Choose a Keyless Lock

Choose your smart home alarm system with your property and family in mind. You may want to select a system that includes cameras to remotely monitor your home, in which case you’ll need to look for an alarm system that integrates that component into your smart home plan. You may need the ability to give access to a number of family and friends, including babysitters, grandparents, or neighbors. Unlike traditional keys that can be copied, lost, or stolen, Smart Lock identifies who has access to the home through unique access codes or fingerprints. These advanced devices do more than just protect your home; we have outlined several reasons someone might choose a Smart Lock system for your family:

  • Keyless Entry
  • Remote Accessibility
  • Temporary Key Assignment
  • 24/7 Real-time Home Monitoring on Any Device
  • Playback Capabilities

Change Your Lifestyle with Keyless Smart Locks

Many homeowners see the investments in smart locks pay off, but families with school-aged children tend to be some of the biggest beneficiaries. No more getting locked out because of forgotten or lost keys, or from traffic that keeps a parent from getting home before the bus. No more worrying at work about whether or not you’ve locked the door on the way out!

With Honeywell Home products, residents can monitor the activity around their home and permit entry to the right family members with the click of a button. Parents can give access to their children without the potential of the house key being lost. They can be used in the event of an accident or emergency, too, so kids can be safe inside while waiting for supervision or help. Once children are safely inside the home, the smart locks can then be used to make sure the doors are locked securely. It’s perfect for working parents who need to keep an eye out for their children’s safety after school.

When searching for Smart Lock options, choose a system that fits your comfort level and security needs. We trust Honeywell Home Smart Security from Resideo. Their smart home solutions for Myrtle Beach homes can help you achieve the lifestyle you want, with an exceptional level of quality.
