Amazon Alexa makes it easy to play songs, get answers to your questions, and even control wifi-enabled devices with just your voice. If you already have an Echo in your home, it’s easy to add compatible security devices. There are many ways you can access Alexa without needing to purchase a new device from Amazon.  You can access Alexa through a variety of non-Amazon devices including these cool options:

What are the benefits of Alexa-controlled locks?

Now that you have access to Alexa, you may be wondering what are some of the benefits of installing a smart lock in your home? 

First and foremost, a lock needs to protect your home from uninvited guests. Smart locks are ideal protection because, instead of having a keyhole which thieves can pick, smart locks use highly encrypted digital access codes which is almost impossible to crack. In addition to helping to foil thieves, you will never worry about forgetting to lock your door since a smart lock allows you to lock and unlock your doors remotely. Installing an Alexa-controlled lock on your door will even allow you to let in a family member or guest without having to be at home. You can also provide workers access to your house without giving them a key.

Smart locks are a great choice for everyone, but are particularly useful for seniors and or those who need modifications to their homes When you combine a smart door lock with a Wi-Fi-enabled security camera, you can see who is at the door before unlocking it from anywhere in your home.

Which smart lock should I buy?

You don’t need to be feel confused when it comes to choosing the best Alexa-controlled smart lock for your home. While there are many choices, a good way to choose the best lock for your home is to speak with a security professional. Call Brinks Home™ to learn how to automate your home to streamline your life.
