I recently discovered the best smart lock, and I am not sure why we waited this long to get one.
We added the Schlage Encode™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt with Camelot Trim to our side door, and it is amazing! I no longer have to worry about making sure I have a house key hidden or on me.
The kids have an easy way in if they are dropped off while we are not home, and we receive an alert as soon as they unlock the door.
The built-in WiFi allows you to lock/unlock from anywhere, plus set up guest access codes for recurring, temporary or permanent access when paired with the Schlage Home app.
We recently had some work done in our home, and the workers needed access into our home. I felt so much safer giving them their own (temporary) access code rather than handing them a house key or garage code.
The low battery indicator offers weeks of advanced warning for battery replacement – which is perfect if you receive the alert while away from home for an extended period of time.
There is a built-in alarm technology that senses potential security breaches at the lock, and I am always alerted when someone unlocks (or locks) the door.
The hardware is easy to install and requires just a screwdriver. I was thankful the battery-operated Schlage Encode™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt requires no hardwiring. You can use the smartphone-friendly, step-by-step walk through of the installation process with our Schlage Encode interactive instructions.

For the rest of the exterior doors, we used the coordinating Camelot Trim Handleset with the Andover Knob.
They are elegant and match the exterior of our home so well.
