    Smartphone

    Smart home technology has made life easier for homeowners the world over. You just can’t beat the convenience and ease of use that a connected home can afford, where you can control your door locks, lights, thermostat, small appliances, entertainment console and much more with nothing more than the tap of a button on your smartphone. If you’re not quite sure how all this works, or how smart home technology can benefit you, let’s examine a few scenarios where smart door locks, for example, can really come in handy.

    Let’s say that you’re at work and you’re busy juggling a thousand things in the office, when all of a sudden you get the dreaded phone call. Yes, somehow your child lost his/her house key, and now they’re locked out of the house. None of the neighbors that you trust are home, and nobody but you has an extra key. It’s only 3:30 p.m., so you have at least a couple of hours before you’re even supposed to be home, which means that you will now have to stop what you’re doing and ask your boss if you can leave early to take care of the situation. With deadlines looming, meetings pending and emails flying around, you know this isn’t the best time to ask, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Enter the stress and worry of wondering about your child until you can get there, and don’t forget about the snowball effect this will have on your already-maxed-out workload.

    Now, let’s change one small detail of the above scenario. Let’s say that instead of having a physical set of keys to deal with, what if you had a keyless lock on your front door, and what if it was connected to the BeHome247 home automation system? Here’s what would happen: You would get the phone call from your child, and then you would pull up the BeHome247 portal on your smartphone. With a simple tap of the screen, you would unlock the front door for your child, and they would instantly have access into the house. Case closed.

    Even better, you could give your child his/her own security code (which they would have committed to memory), and they would simply enter the code into the keypad, and be inside within seconds. Overwhelmingly simple. Not only that, but if you have a keyless lock such as the Yale Real Living Deadbolt, the door will automatically lock within seconds of your child entering the home, so you can rest assured they’re safe and sound inside.

    What about situations where you may need to provide a contractor or a maintenance worker with temporary access to your home? You don’t want to have to take the day off from work just to be there when they arrive, so wouldn’t it be better if you could assign them a temporary access code to your keyless lock? Using the BeHome247 online portal, you can set it all of this up from the convenience of your smartphone, and then you can call or text the contractor to let them know what their code is. You would also receive a text or email notification to let you know when the code has been used to gain entry to your home. Once they’re finished, you can scrap the code entirely. Simple as that.

    Let’s not forget the convenience of having smart door locks when it comes time to make your nightly rounds to ensure that all of your doors are locked. Instead of having to spend time physically checking the security of each door, what if you could just simply push a button on your smartphone, and have all of your doors lock at one time? With keyless locks and the BeHome247 portal, you can do just that…no hassle and no problem.

    As you can see, there are tons of benefits to combining smart home technology with keyless locks. You can save yourself a ton of time and inconvenience, and you will find that having this technology in place will greatly simplify your life. When you think about the aggravation of having to keep up with traditional keys, it only makes sense to make your home “smarter” by installing keyless locks and integrating them with the BeHome247 home automation system. When it comes to convenience and security, smart door locks simply can’t be beat.
