A smart lock is an electronic locking system that uses wireless communication technology to control access to a building or room. It is designed to enhance security and convenience by allowing keyless entry and remote control of the locking device.
The smart lock works by connecting to a smartphone or a smart home system, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home. With the help of an app or voice commands, users can lock or unlock the door from anywhere in the world.
The lock may use different technologies to determine whether it should grant access or not, such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or NFC. It may also have additional features such as a key code or fingerprint scanner.
Smart locks are becoming increasingly popular as they are easy to use, offer enhanced security features, and can be integrated into smart home systems for greater control over home automation.
