While no one's doubting the effectiveness of a standard door lock, there's a lot to be said for the latest smart locks. Popular manufacturers like Kwikset, Schlage, and Yale have already jumped on board to offer high-quality locks that come loaded with useful features. You'd never know how useful virtual keys or auto-unlock can be until you've tried it. After months of testing and living with nine popular smart locks, I'd recommend the Schlage Sense.
They all managed to pass the test of locking and unlocking my door, but there were clear distinctions when it came to the smart features, so much so that there are four things you should know before you buy a smart lock. It doesn't matter if you rent or own, use an Amazon Echo or Google Home, I've found the perfect smart lock for you.
