Smart Key is one of the smart home star players in terms of combining style and automation. Keys designed to work with voice assistants, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth are available in various shapes and sizes. No matter the dilemma at your doorstep, there might be intelligent locking there for you. Here are some ways to refine your front door to make life simpler.
All smart key ideas are to add comfort to your life. For smart keys, it includes features such as remote access, voice control, and scenes.
You can control your smart key remotely when connected to a Wi-Fi network. More often than not, that means buying a small Wi-Fi bridge plug-in to connect the key to your network. After connecting to Wi-Fi, you can lock or unlock the door from anywhere you have an internet connection. Forgot to lock the door when you left for a business trip this morning? A connected key will remind you when your door is left open or unlocked.

A smart key doesn’t have to be clunky or oddly shaped. In fact, they can even be disguised as ordinary keys. Take Kwikset Kevo, for example. From close range, it looks like a standard, mute deadbolt. Approach it with the Kevo application open, and you can tap with one finger to unlock the door.
Smart locks like BlueTooth door locks or Bio-metric door locks make your front door secure, without revealing the intelligence inside. Because these keys attach to the inner hook of your deadbolt, the outside of your door will not change.
Yes, smart keys are connected to the network, and anyone with a smart key must really keep their application updated, secure passwords and use a PIN to unlock through a voice assistant. However, a smart key does eliminate the risk of someone swiping a key from under your mat.
Without the need to make a copy of a key or have a backup, you will have fewer methods of entering your house to float in the form of physical keys. You can even set some smart keys to automatically lock the door after the specified time, or when your cell phone has left the immediate area.
