Remember that scene in Along came Polly where Ben Stiller’s A-type, worrywart character gifts his B-type, boeheim girlfriend Polly with a key tracker and she uses the device (reluctantly) only to find her keys stashed inside of her fridge?
Don’t be Polly.

With more homes becoming “smart” and everyone’s vocabulary growing increasingly more techy, it could be overwhelming to find the information you need–that’s where we come in. We’re here to answer all of your digital doorlock, deadbolt, and security questions, all in these bite-sized paragraphs.
Going keyless means upgrading to a digital or electronic lock–and that might sounds pretty intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be! Let’s walk through some of the most common questions, misconceptions, and little-known facts about these smart locks.
“Don’t leave a key under the mat.”
Eliminate the need to leave spare keys laying around for your favorite neighbor or only semi-responsible housesitter.
Most smart locks come equipped with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi capabilities–so you don’t have to invest in the age-old “under the mat” trick, or buy those rocks with false bottoms. Also, skip the dread sitting in your stomach your whole vacation–have peace of mind while you’re sitting on that beach.
“What do I need to know?”
Well, this is your first and probably most important question to arm yourself with information.
First your want to determine:
1. What kind of locks you already have inside and outside of your home.
2. Where do you want to install digital locks? Are there areas inside your home you want to safeguard as much as your front door? Or is there a certain section of your work office you need to keep secure? Determining these will help you pick out the specific smart locks you’ll need.
3. How much you are willing to spend. Some electronic locks can be quite pricey–how far are you willing to go to secure your space?
4. What features are you looking for? Are you looking for something simple and keyless? Something that connects to your phone? Something that comes with an app for ultimate, at your fingertips control?
“Do I have to replace my current deadbolt?”
This is probably the most important question you will ask yourself.

“But how safe is it? Are they easy to remove?”
