1. Make your deadbolt smarter
Promising review: "... Nobody gets locked out any longer, or forgets to lock the door at night. It works well in conjunction with our security monitoring and makes me feel a literal 1000% better about our home being fully secure. We even ordered an additional one for our other outside door. I also like that I can just always use a key, or give guest passes. I am very happy with this purchase."
2. Tap your finger
Promising review: "Purchased this lock after installing my eufy door bell. I also wanted to make sure that my door gets locked, no matter where I am. I have used this lock for 2 months now and had zero issues. Very easy to setup and the app allows me to control it. Auto-lock feature works great. Fingerprints work great."
3. Keyless entry
Promising review: "Love this lock. I got it in October of 2019 and have had no issues. Today, 18 months later, a low battery warning popped up on my app. Great battery life and glad to know there is a warning for low batteries. Easy to install, Lock always works, it works well with both Alexa and Google home and it's great for giving friends and family access to your home if they need it. I highly recommend."
4. Access history
Promising review: "Love the features, especially setting it to automatically lock, we don’t need to remember to lock the door now. Love not needing keys and knowing family can enter when necessary without us being home or even if we’re upstairs and don’t want to go downstairs to let them in. One time the door was not shut all the way when it went to lock itself and it beeped us to let us know."
