Will a new smart lock function with the existing cylinder or deadbolt that I have?
Usually, major changes to the door will be not required. Most of the time, the existing door is compatible with a new smart lock. In fact, most of the smart locks available now are created to work with current deadbolts and cylinders.
Our installation experts might need to make a few small changes to your current lock for your new smart lock to work properly.

Usually, we will not have to make any major changes to your door. In fact, most of the time, we find the existing door can accommodate the new smart lock. Most of the smart locks are manufactured to function with current deadbolts and cylinders.
Will my existing cylinder or deadbolt work with my new 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.

Can I use my phone to control the smart lock?
Smart locks aim to make locking and unlocking your doors easier and more efficient while assuring your home's security. In trying to replace the standard keyed systems with remote access from a smartphone, smart locks do not have the same drawbacks of a regular key system.
A smart lock is a lock you can open with your phone. While the majority of the smart lock models that are being purchased by business and homeowners work perfectly with smartphones, there could be some case in which they do not. This primarily is because customers' smartphones are not compatible with the smart lock they want to install.
The main purpose of smart locks is to make the repetitive act of locking and unlocking your doors more seamless and efficient than having multiple keys, while still maintaining your home safety. Because it does away with traditional keyed systems, implementing remote access from a smartphone through a smart lock eliminates many of the faults of regular key systems.

Will installation damage my door?
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.
If your door has a deadbolt that is separately installed or a separately installed handle and knob set, our locksmiths might have to remove them for you. The exact process depends upon your individual situation and the particular smart lock you decide on for the doors in your home.
Smart locks: a Smart Option
While Our goal is to provide you the quickest service possible, the smart lock installation timeline depends on both the type of lock you currently have and the smart lock model you want to install.
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.

It's good to know that while they highly efficient, the reason most people enjoy smart locks is for the connectivity and efficiency. (They do not necessarily make the lock more secure.)

Most of the customers who choose smart locks appreciate the ease with which they work and the flexibility they provide to homeowners and families.
What are Smart Locks?
Smart Locks were created as a way to make homes safer and home security more efficient to manage. With people increasingly using technology in their lives, the addition of smart locks is one more way to simplify your life and integrate your home security with the rest of your technological advances. They offer many perks to homeowners, like being able to unlock the front door when you are nearby, or allowing you to offer guests temporary access to your home. The homeowner always has control over who can use the smart lock to access the property.
Smart locks use Bluetooth frequencies from your phone to communicate with the locks on your home to send a signal to unlock the door. That means you are always in control of who can – and cannot – access your home. No doubt, smart locks are reinventing the world of home security.
