Frequently Asked Questions
Will a new smart lock function with the existing cylinder or deadbolt that I have?
Smart Locks give homeowners an easy, efficient way to make access their homes without managing multiple sets of keys. They are technologically on-trend, fitting in with people's growing reliance on their smartphones to manage different aspects of their lives.
There are a few exceptions to this rule, but most of the smart locks dominating the can use the deadbolts already in place. If you do not have an integrated lock, and you have separate deadbolts and handles, then the old lock you have in place can be retrofitted to work with your new smart lock.
While there are some doors and locks that require changes, the majority of smart locks most commonly used work with the deadbolts you already have on your door. As long as you do not have an integrated lock, and you have separate deadbolts and handles, We can retrofit the lock for your new smart lock.
Will I be able to get into my home in a different way than the smart lock?
Usually, the answer is yes. In fact, most of the smart locks available now are created to work with current deadbolts and cylinders. There are a few instances in which this is not true, but most of the most commonly sold smart locks will use the exiting deadbolts on a door.
Most of the smart locks available today also offer alternative keyed entry methods, allowing homeowners access to their homes at all times. In order to avoid any complications if the smart lock is malfunctioning in any way, this might be a feature for you to consider when choosing your new smart lock.
In most cases, our locksmiths have determined that the existing door will work with a new smart lock, and we didn't have to make any serious changes.
No matter what the current specifications, Our locksmiths work hard to implement the solution that works best for you. Our trustworthy locksmiths will let you know if we have to make any alterations in order for the smart lock to properly work on your home. We like to point out that smart locks function best with deadbolts, so homes that have integrated locks and handles, or have mortise and rim cylinder locks, will likely require some modifications.

Can I operate the lock with my phone?
Yes. Just as the name implies, a smart lock is intelligent enough to work with your smartphone. Unless you have a phone that is incompatible with the lock system for some reason, you will use the Bluetooth connectivity to 'talk to' your smart lock.
That's why we often recommend one of the smart lock packages that also provide a keyed entry alternative. These avoid any distress should the smart lock be temporarily unavailable. It's a great option to consider when you make the decision about which smart lock you want to install.
Homeowners have the luxury of knowing that they don't have to worry that if they lose their keys, they lose access or security at their homes. And if you every worry that you forgot to lock your house, you can put that fear aside as well as with a smart lock. Just access the lock from your phone and be assured your home is secure.

Will my door be damaged in the process of a smart lock installation?
No. If a deadbolt is not yet in place, then one can be installed so that the smart lock installation goes smoothly. If your door has a separately installed deadbolt and a separately installed handle/knob set, then the knob set might have to be taken off. This will depend on which smart lock you decide to install on the door of your home.
Our priority is your satisfaction, and we will not compromise your door during our installation. If you happen to have a separately installed deadbolt along with a separate handle/knob, we will likely h have to take out the knob set. Again, all this depends on your precise situations, as well as the type of smart lock you purchase.
How long does a smart lock installation take?
The installation time for smart locks varies depending upon the type of smart lock that the homeowner wishes to install, and also on the type of the lock that the homeowner already has in place. It's much quicker if you already have a Grade 1 deadbolt in place, because the new smart lock just has to be incorporated into the existing deadbolt.
The time is shorter if you have a Grade 1 deadbolt already installed on your door. That means the new smart lock simply has to be incorporated into the deadbolt. It will take a little bit longer if you do not have a deadbolt, as we will have to install one for the smart lock to operate.
No matter what, we aim to provide fast service to residents.
Is a smart lock right my home?
Before you purchase the smart lock that you want to be installed, we advise you to talk through the benefits with your locksmith so you make the choice that best meets your needs. Our goal is your satisfaction, so we feel it's important you understand the differences between smart locks and traditional key locks. Together, we will decide on the best course of action for you.
The big pro for a smart lock is that it helps improve efficiency and connectivity. The main focus is not on implementing a more secure mechanism or increasing your home security. Still, many homeowners enjoy this new technology and the way in which it simplifies their lives. They are definitely a technological advance.
