Smart locks keep you safe when you are home alone and security notifications when you are away.
Save 15%: The August WiFi Smart Lock and Eufy Security Smart Lock will get discounts of $ 38.22 and $ 30, respectively, beginning February 9.
The day the quarantine-themed intruder movie becomes the topic is the day we all learn how to build home alone style booby traps.
In fact, horror can be a handy coping mechanism for some people with pandemic fear – for others, the quarantine has only compounded the panic that comes with being alone. Smart locks are a quick way to address security concerns at home, and two well-reviewed models from August and Eufy are currently receiving a 15% discount.
Attaches to existing latch
Unlock remotely from anywhere, including Apple Watch
Built-in WiFi means no additional bridge is required
August’s beloved Smart Lock is just getting smarter. The latest version of August’s tiny keyless lock has its own WiFi hub. The app-controlled locking and unlocking from anywhere can be done without setting up a separate WiFi bridge. The auto unlock feature uses your phone’s location to unlock the door when you’re nearby, so you can focus on not dropping those arms full of groceries.
Keyboard and fingerprint scanner
Open door notification sensor
Requires door with lever handle
A big name in the robot vacuum game wants to make your home future-oriented in a different category. Eufy’s Smart Lock can be unlocked with a quick fingerprint scan or a PIN of your choice – a simple solution for households with children who do not have their own smartphone to unlock it via an app. A sensor in the lock will notify you if the door has not been fully closed. (Note: WiFi and remote unlocking are not supported by this lock.)
