The Best Smart Lock for Your Front Door in 2021

Find The Most Secure Smart Door Lock to Keep Your Home Safe

Thinking about getting a smart lock? Read this before you buy!

You may have heard some things about smart door looks, or you may have never even heard of them. One way or the other, you may be wondering: why would you even need something like this? How are smart locks an improvement over your current deadbolt? Are smart locks simply another “smart” trend, or do they provide real value to you?

Before we answer that, first thing’s first: what is a smart lock, anyway? — A smart lock is a Wi-Fi- and/or Bluetooth-controlled device that provides users alternative ways of unlocking doors than just with their keys — including fingerprint, voice commands, and more. Smart locks also can provide remote access, so you can let guests in while you are away through a phone application.

Definitions aside, there are many different options out there for you to choose from for smart locks, each coming with some pros and cons. In this post, we will cover some of the core benefits of smart locks, and also go over the specific features in our own smart lock — The Bosma Aegis Smart Door Lock. When we designed the Aegis Smart Door Lock, we looked carefully at some of the best features of others on the market, and, more importantly, their drawbacks, to provide our customers with a smart lock designed with the key features they want and need, and none of the drawbacks.

5 Benefits of Smart Locks

Smart locks are a great way to improve your everyday life. They can help improve:

#1: Convenience

One of the core benefits of getting a smart lock is the added convenience they provide you. You never have to fish around in your pocket or handbag for your keys again, nor will you ever get struck by that sudden worry when you’re out on vacation that you forgot to lock your door — you can simply use your phone to make sure your home is secure. If you ever leave the door unlocked on accident, a smart lock will alert you of this. 

#2: Security

You’d be amazed at how many people leave spare keys under their doormats or under a nearby rock. Instead of having spare keys floating around, your current main door key becomes your back-up, while your fingerprint or face become your new way of unlocking your door. A smart lock system can make home security both more efficient and reliable. 

#3: Style

While this is not true for all smart locks, one of the things customers love about The Bosma Aegis Smart Door Lock is that it looks very sleek and modern. In particular for people who are turning their home into a smart home, with lots of streamlined and automated processes (such as lights, speakers, plugs, security systems, thermostat, and more), a smart lock is one more way to upgrade your everyday routine to be simpler and more modern.

#4: Simplicity

Another attractive thing about the Bosma Aegis Smart Door Lock is that you don’t have to replace your old keys with it. They will still work, but now you have other ways of getting into your home. For example, imagine a situation where you are carrying in groceries. On such occasions, it can be quite inconvenient to have to reach into your pocket while your hands are full. Smart locks simplify unlocking and locking your doors, improving your life in some small ways that are in your control. 

#5: Flexibility

On vacation or at the office and need to let someone? It’s not all that safe to just leave a key under the mat for them. Instead, you can just digitally unlock the door when they get to your house, and then have it lock again after they leave. Uncertainty is no longer a problem when you use a smart lock. Once you get one, you won’t ever want to go back to just a standard deadbolt system without the digital controls!

An Essential Part of Your Whole Smart Home Upgrade

One of the main reasons people choose to make their homes into smart homes is far extra security and control. Connected lights, cameras, and doorbells (such as the Bosma Sentry Video Doorbell) can keep your home safe from break-ins simply by having them there (which often scares potential burglars away then and there).

One essential part of your whole smart home upgrade is a smart door lock, such as The Bosma Aegis Smart Door Lock. This lock comes with many security features that our customers love, such as:

  • Door ajar alerts
  • AES-128 encryption
  • Door-breaking detection
  • And more

It’s also easy to install (all you need is a Phillips screwdriver) and is compatible with all standard US single-cylinder deadbolts.

The Bottom Line: Keep Your Home Secure

At the end of the day, your main interest in a smart deadbolt is not going to be it’s style and extra features, but how effectively it keeps your home secure. Even though The Bosma Aegis Smart Door Lock has lots of excellent benefits and features, it’s main value, and the reason why it’s so popular, is because it excels at the essential feature — keeping your home safe, keeping you in control, and overall improving home security.
