How Smart Locks for your Home Can Prevent Break-Ins

The stereotypical burglary scenario may involve a forced break-in through a locked door of a home – but surprisingly, one-third of burglaries are classified as simple “unlawful entry” crimes. What does that mean? In those cases, it means there was no forced entry to the home at all. Usually, these are situations where the burglar came in easily through an unlocked door or window – a veritable welcome mat for those who would take what isn’t theirs.

It’s the Homeowner’s Responsibility

Of course, the homeowner is ultimately responsible for keeping the doors of the home locked so that unlawful entry doesn’t take place. However, there is still an electronic security solution for unlocked doors to support the homeowner. It’s a home security system that notifies the homeowner when the door is unlocked, uses electronic locks rather than traditionally keyed doorknobs, and is controlled with the homeowner’s smartphone for total convenience.

What it Solves

This kind of a home security system can support a homeowner in a variety of scenarios: when rushing out the door to work, when realizing the doors may not be locked while you’re already at work, and when it’s too late – and everyone’s too tired – to double and triple-check the locks. Plus, this system isn’t just for securing doors; it’s also for securing the home’s windows, so they will be just as impenetrable by a burglar.

The smart home security system notifies the homeowner when the door is unlocked, uses electronic locks rather than traditionally keyed doorknobs, and is controlled with the homeowner’s smartphone for total convenience.

How it Reminds

If the homeowner needs reminders, this system can send them. It can be programmed for reminders to the homeowner’s smartphone at those times of day when door and window locking is necessary: before leaving for work, for instance, or when it’s time to go to bed. It can also notify the homeowner when one of the locks or windows has been left open; that includes front doors, backdoors and garage doors, by the way. As long as it’s been outfitted as a smart lock and integrated with the security system, it can be covered by these reminders and notifications.

One-Touch Lockup

Another time saver of a smart security system like this: It allows for a one-touch lockup of the entire home. This is done by programming the system to with “scenes” through the home security app. The scenes include options like “Lock Up” or “Leave Home,” in addition to scenes designed for bedtime. If any lights are integrated, then it can turn those connected lights off as well. Again, all of this is with one touch of the app.
