What is a Smart Door Lock?
Simply put, digital door locks, keypad locks, e-locks, keyless door locks, or smart locks are electrically functional locks.

What are the difference between Smart Door Lock & Digital Door Lock?
Most people use the terms Digital Lock and smart lock interchangeably, but there are subtle differences when it comes to these types of door locks. Even if you use a digital lock or keypad lock, you still need to be physically present to unlock the door. Smart locks, on the other hand, are digital lock doors with integrated WiFi or Bluetooth, so you can remotely control and access your locks via your smartphone.
HIK Technology provide both of types and some brands got both features (Digital Door Lock & Smart Door Lock).
What are the difference between Traditional Locks & Smart Door Lock?
Traditional locks, usually padlocks, deadbolt locks, mechanical locks, deadbolts, mortise locks, or no blocks are not much different from smart locks. In some cases, the smart lock can use the existing padlock mechanism, but the lock is electronically latched. The same secure lock applies when you lock the security door to protect it from intruders. However, smart locks include additional features such as alarms and notifications that notify your smartphone directly in the event of an intrusion.
Conveniently, it’s much easier to enter your passcode or use your fingerprint to enter the front door than to spend minutes looking for the key. You can also lock the door remotely using a smart lock. Especially if you think you’ve forgotten because you’re late for work.
What are the advantages of using electronic locks?
Providing better convenience
Say goodbye to your neighbors staring at you while clumsy looking for keys in your digital or smart lock to prove you’re not an intruder. Simply enter your passcode or use your fingerprint to join. You can also use smart locks to lock security doors remotely.
Providing remote access
Digital locks and smart locks are also great if you have frequent friends or need to hire an elderly parent’s caregiver. You no longer need to store extra keys under a flowerpot or doormat. Provide a PIN number (which you can change at any time later) or use Smart Door Lock via the Smart Lock app to provide remote access. You can also allow users to enter the house using a PIN at specific times. B. Monday through Friday from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm, if you want to avoid annoying shocks.
Providing high security
The lack of physical security locks means that someone has less chance of breaking into your home. Especially if the smart lock doesn’t even have a keyway to open it. Smart locks also allow you to change your PIN at any time, eliminating the need to replace the entire lock and key set if your current PIN seems to be at risk.
With a digital lock or smart lock in place, you can set an alarm to go off if there is a potential break-in. With a smart lock, you will also receive a notification for unwanted entry into your home. Some digital locks or smart locks also come with a scramble code function to add more numbers before or after your PIN code, just in case you`re worried someone is looking above your shoulders as you type your password.
