Of all the smart home gadgets out there, smart locks are some of the best problem-solvers when it comes to everyday annoyances. Forget your key? No problem. Need to unlock the door to let in a friend or service provider? Easy-peasy. Forgot to lock the door before heading into bed? Don’t worry. With a smart lock at your door, you can manage all of that with an easy voice command or the tap of a button, offering you security, convenience, automation and peace of mind.bluetooth based door lock system

Picking the best smart lock for your home depends on a few things. For some, scheduling and user code limits will be important. For others, having a door lock that can be retrofit and not replace the deadbolt on the door is a must-have. We’ve tested the best smart locks on the market today and these are our favorites.

The $279 August Smart Lock Pro + Connect bundle includes a retrofit August Smart Lock Pro, a Connect Wi-Fi module and a DoorSense open/close sensor.

This August smart lock supports the Z-Wave wireless protocol (smart hub not included) and works with Apple HomeKit. With the Wi-Fi module set up, you’ll get Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant compatibility, as well as remote access to your lock for when you’re not home.

The Smart Lock Pro is a capable, easy-to-install smart lock and the winner of our CNET Editors’ Choice Award. August’s $219 third-generation Smart Lock + Connect bundle comes with a DoorSense open/close sensor and Connect Wi-Fi module. The low profile, retrofit design means you won’t need to replace your deadbolt, making it great for renters.

The August Smart Lock with the Connect setup works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa and is controllable remotely through the August mobile app. You won’t get Apple HomeKit compatibility or Z-Wave smarts to connect to a smart hub. Still, this August Smart Lock is a moderately priced, capable smart door lock.
