Smart Locks have taken the market by storm, as manufacturers and tech companies compete to see who can sell the most units, earn the highest revenue and utilize the most intuitive technology. There are innumerable brands on the market, but 5 of them have gained more notoriety than all the rest. If you are one of the many consumers that have hesitated to invest in a Smart Lock, you may find one of these brands, ideal for your home.
Many Smart device manufacturers are opting to design their products around Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa software. Both the HomeKit and Alexa app offer voice command control, while you are at home. However, if you own the Apple TV and Amazon Echo, you will be provided with remote voice-activated capabilities. According to CNET, the Home app in iOS 10 will not change this fact, because an Apple TV will be required to access Siri off your wireless network. The reason for this is because the microphone embedded into your mobile device (mobile phone and tablet) are not powerful enough to pick up voice commands from far away.
