Does my phone operate the smart lock?
Smart locks aim to make locking and unlocking your doors easier and more efficient while assuring your home's security. In trying to replace the standard keyed systems with remote access from a smartphone, smart locks do not have the same drawbacks of a regular key system.
A smart lock is a lock you can open with your phone. While the majority of the smart lock models that are being purchased by business and homeowners work perfectly with smartphones, there could be some case in which they do not. This primarily is because customers' smartphones are not compatible with the smart lock they want to install.
The main purpose of smart locks is to make the repetitive act of locking and unlocking your doors more seamless and efficient than having multiple keys, while still maintaining your home safety. Because it does away with traditional keyed systems, implementing remote access from a smartphone through a smart lock eliminates many of the faults of regular key systems.
Are your locksmiths trained to install smart locks?
We're proud to say yes. Our locksmiths are highly trained in professional smart lock installation.
In addition to knowing how to properly install smart locks, our technicians are well-versed in the specific instructions that come with their the many makes and models of smart locks, so they can troubleshoot any problems.

Will my door be damaged in the process of a smart lock installation?
No. We take great care in the installation process to preserve the integrity of your door. Because we most often use the deadbolts already installed on your door, there is not damage to the door. In the event you do now have a deadbolt, we will professionally install one to make sure the smart lock installation is seamless.
If your door has a deadbolt that is separately installed or a separately installed handle and knob set, our locksmiths might have to remove them for you. The exact process depends upon your individual situation and the particular smart lock you decide on for the doors in your home.
How long will this installation take?
While Our goal is to provide you the quickest service possible, the smart lock installation timeline depends on both the type of lock you currently have and the smart lock model you want to install.
For those homes that do not have deadbolts, a deadbolt might have to be installed to make sure that the smart lock will work to its best ability. Again Our highly educated and skilled technicians will advise you about all the necessary steps.
