Anyone who has a smart lock at their home will tell you that you’d have to be crazy to go on without one. It’s just so much easier to ditch your house keys and use your smartphone, a combination, or even a simple tap to unlock your front door. In fact, the smart lock I use doesn’t even have a key! That’s a bit extreme and not everyone is ready for it, which is why most smart locks let you use a regular key as a backup in case your phone dies or you forget it somewhere.
Have you been toying with the idea of getting a smart lock for your home but you’re unsure of which one you should buy? Don’t worry because we’ve got you covered. We’ve tested every top smart lock out there and picked our five favorites, and it just so happens that they’re all discounted right now at Amazon! The coolest option out there right now is the Video Smart Lock by Gate Labs, which combines a smart lock and a video doorbell into a single device that’s $30 off today with an extra battery. The best-selling August Smart Lock Pro is down to $165 from its regular price of $280, and the $200 Yale Assure Lock is down to $149. The upgraded Yale Assure SL that works with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri is $64 off today (that’s the one I use), while the $230 Kwikset Kevo Touch-to-Open Smart Lock is down to just $106 and change.
