Keyless Smart Locks That Do Not Rely On The Internet

Relying on the Internet to lock and unlock the door have raised a few questions; what if it lost the Internet connection, what if the server is down and worst of all, what if it is hacked.

We love the smart home concept and have adopted voice activated assistants, smart lighting, thermostat, smoke detector, plugs, smart doorbells and home monitoring system. We soon realised that some of these systems cannot be used without access to the cloud and by that we mean the Internet.

There is also the inherent risk of hackers gaining access to and control of the systems if it is not secured properly by the manufacturer. Loop holes in the firmware and software may leave the system exposed. The risk is real. Imagine someone hacking your IP camera, he or she would be able to know when you are in and out.

So when it comes to smart locks, the best protection is one that is independent, that can function without relying on the Internet. This removes the risk of attackers trying to gain access to your home by unlocking your door over the Internet.
