Integrating your smart lock with Alexa opens up the potential for even more efficient command over your door, when executing simple voice commands such as “Alexa, lock the door” or “Alexa, unlock the door” in order to gain entry into your home. Additionally you can also monitor the status of your door from wherever you are at home as well.
However, you should keep in mind that you’ll also need to create a security pin code that Alexa will ask you whenever you want to gain entry. This way, your home will remain secure and protected even with your lock supporting Alexa.
Some smart locks such as the August Smart Lock Pro require a hub or gateway in order to integrate with Alexa, while other models like Schlage Encode with it’s in-built WiFi can be directly integrated with Alexa or Google and you’ll only need a device such as Echo Show or Google Home.
So let’s get right to it and see which smart lock suits you and your home best!
