Best HomeKit door locks
Door locks are one of the fastest growing product lines that support Apple HomeKit. With this integration, you control the doors in your home using your iPhone from anywhere in the world. Better still, in many cases, you can see who’s at your home without even opening the door.
Perhaps the best HomeKit door locks on the list (and the one in my home) is the August Smart Lock Pro. Featuring the ability to control and monitor your door from anywhere, the Pro allows you to lock/unlock your door, control keyless access, and keep track of who comes and goes. With DoorSense, the system can even let you know if your door is securely closed and locked.
Offering relatively simple DIY installation, the August Smart Lock Pro works with your existing lock and keys. It’s also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
This deadbolt offers several ways to get into your home. You can of course use a key, but you can also use the integrated keypad, or any of your Apple devices with the HomeKit app.
This is actually the one Sebastien has in his house, and he confirms the installation is dead simple, taking him less than 15 minutes and just a screwdriver.
The accompanying app isn’t great, but it’s not necessary past the initial installation since most of everything can be done using Siri, or simply using the HomeKit app. Where the Reagle app will be needed is to generate access keys for various users, or to generate one-time access codes (perfect for the maid). All in all, a great smart lock at a decent price.
With this deadbolt, you can enter an access code on the touchscreen to lock/unlock your door. Pair with your smartphone over Bluetooth for more convenient access. Share access with trusted friends and family with just a few taps.
When you add the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter, you can lock/unlock your Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt from anywhere using the Schlage app. Available in different styles to match your home.
The Danalock V3 is a wireless smart lock that lets you control access to your home with your smartphone, allowing you to ditch your physical keys once and for all. With this product, you can create an unlimited number of digital keys for your family members, friends, guests, or helpers such as a housekeeper or contractor.
The lock is globally compatible and fits the three most common types of cylinders: oval lock Scandi cylinders, drop-shaped Euro cylinders, and U.S. deadbolt locks.
For something completely different, consider the Smart Fingerprint Lock from Koogeek. This padlock can be unlocked with your fingerprint, using your voice with Siri, or through the Koogeek and Home apps. The battery lasts for up to a year between charges.
This touchscreen smart lock is fully compatible with Apple HomeKit and offers remote access to monitor, lock, and unlock, from anywhere in the world. With Siri voice control, you can check lock history with ease.
Available in various finishes, the Kwikset Premis is not compatible with Android-based devices.
The Yale Assure YRD256 offers a touchscreen for manual lock and unlock, but the smart lock also has a standalone app to handle that as well. The package also includes a security camera, which connects to Amazon’s cloud service, making it possible to monitor and control your door lock from anywhere — and see who’s at your front door even when you aren’t home.
This smart lock works with Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant, offers the ability to create up to 250 access codes, and has easy installation.
