Many consumers are questioning the security of the Smart Lock, but isn’t it far to say that both the Smart Lock and conventional lock have security issues? The traditional lock is vulnerable to bump keys or lock picks and Smart Locks are vulnerable fuzzing, device spoofing and replay attacks.
Karl Rhinehart and Adolf Schoepe founded Kwikset, a leading provider of door locks and locksets, in 1946. Having much success with the traditional door lock, the company finally decided to join the Smart Lock industry. Today, Kwikset has an extensive Smart Lock product line, with models that support an array of third-party network-connected products and devices.
