Will my existing cylinder or deadbolt work with a new smart lock?
Usually, major changes to the door will be not required. Most of the time, the existing door is compatible with a new smart lock. In fact, most of the smart locks available now are created to work with current deadbolts and cylinders.
Our installation experts might need to make a few small changes to your current lock for your new smart lock to work properly. Many of the smart lock models are designed to work solely with deadbolts, so they might not work with some integrated locks and handles or some mortise and rim cylinder locks.
While there are some doors and locks that require changes, the majority of smart locks most commonly used work with the deadbolts you already have on your door. As long as you do not have an integrated lock, and you have separate deadbolts and handles, We can retrofit the lock for your new smart lock.
Will I be able to get into my home in a different way than the smart lock?
Yes. Many of the smart locks that have become increasingly popular among homeowners allow you to have another way to get into your home in the event that the smart lock becomes temporarily dysfunctional. There are rare instances when the battery in the smart lock dies, and the homeowner could be locked out.
Most of the smart locks available today also offer alternative keyed entry methods, allowing homeowners access to their homes at all times. In order to avoid any complications if the smart lock is malfunctioning in any way, this might be a feature for you to consider when choosing your new smart lock.

Does my phone operate the smart lock?
Yes. Just as the name implies, a smart lock is intelligent enough to work with your smartphone. Unless you have a phone that is incompatible with the lock system for some reason, you will use the Bluetooth connectivity to 'talk to' your smart lock.
That's why we often recommend one of the smart lock packages that also provide a keyed entry alternative. These avoid any distress should the smart lock be temporarily unavailable. It's a great option to consider when you make the decision about which smart lock you want to install.
The main purpose of smart locks is to make the repetitive act of locking and unlocking your doors more seamless and efficient than having multiple keys, while still maintaining your home safety. Because it does away with traditional keyed systems, implementing remote access from a smartphone through a smart lock eliminates many of the faults of regular key systems.
Are your locksmiths qualified to install smart locks?
Yes! Our locksmiths know how to properly and professionally carry out a smart lock installation.
Most of our customers are happy with their smart lock choice. We encourage you to understand the differences between smart locks and traditional locks. Our skilled locksmiths are happy to answer questions and help you make an educated choice.
Will the installation process damage my door?
No. We take great care in the installation process to preserve the integrity of your door. Because we most often use the deadbolts already installed on your door, there is not damage to the door. In the event you do now have a deadbolt, we will professionally install one to make sure the smart lock installation is seamless.
Our priority is your satisfaction, and we will not compromise your door during our installation. If you happen to have a separately installed deadbolt along with a separate handle/knob, we will likely h have to take out the knob set. Again, all this depends on your precise situations, as well as the type of smart lock you purchase.
How long will this installation take?
The installation time for smart locks varies depending upon the type of smart lock that the homeowner wishes to install, and also on the type of the lock that the homeowner already has in place. It's much quicker if you already have a Grade 1 deadbolt in place, because the new smart lock just has to be incorporated into the existing deadbolt.
For those homes that do not have deadbolts, a deadbolt might have to be installed to make sure that the smart lock will work to its best ability. Again Our highly educated and skilled technicians will advise you about all the necessary steps.
The new smart lock can easily be incorporated into the deadbolt. If you don't already have a deadbolt, we may have to install one for you to ensure that your new smart lock works properly and efficiently.
Is a smart lock right for your home?
Before you purchase the smart lock that you want to be installed, we advise you to talk through the benefits with your locksmith so you make the choice that best meets your needs. Our goal is your satisfaction, so we feel it's important you understand the differences between smart locks and traditional key locks. Together, we will decide on the best course of action for you.
Most of the customers who choose smart locks appreciate the ease with which they work and the flexibility they provide to homeowners and families.
What are Smart Locks?
Smart Locks were created as a way to make homes safer and home security more efficient to manage. With people increasingly using technology in their lives, the addition of smart locks is one more way to simplify your life and integrate your home security with the rest of your technological advances. They offer many perks to homeowners, like being able to unlock the front door when you are nearby, or allowing you to offer guests temporary access to your home. The homeowner always has control over who can use the smart lock to access the property.
Smart locks use Bluetooth frequencies from your phone to communicate with the locks on your home to send a signal to unlock the door. That means you are always in control of who can – and cannot – access your home. No doubt, smart locks are reinventing the world of home security.
