Top Five Reasons to Install Smart Locks with Home Automation

Smart home locks allow remote control of your home’s accessibility for maximum security, convenience, and efficiency.

1) Enhance Home Security

When it comes to smart home security, smart locks have brought about a new level of home safety. When you install Z-Wave connected and integrated smart locks into your smart home design, you are guaranteeing yourself peace of mind by knowing the status of your locks at all times. If you forget your house keys, you panic. That isn’t a problem if you have smart locks. Unlock doors automatically when your are in close proximity and re-lock them again when you are out of range. Use your smart device or phone to unlock doors remotely. Keep track of home traffic and schedule the times that automatically lock your door. Now you can limit the copy of keys handed out and control your door as you see fit.

2) Protect Mail And Deliveries

According to Sell Central, 11 million parcels are stolen from doorsteps every year. With smart locks installed by Smarter Homes, you can unlock the front door or delivery bin for deliveries left when you’re not home. Ensure your deliveries are safe from theft, anytime, anywhere with the help of your delivery doorbell.

3) Remote Access and Monitoring

Give unexpected friends or family access to your home when you’re away. Smart homes with smart locks allow you to grant access by unlock the doors for them when you’re away. You can assign permanent or temporary codes for guest access. Smart locks are also a great idea for roommates, vacation homes, and house sitters.

4) Elegance and Style

Smart locks come in all different shapes and sizes with a broad selection of features. With automated locks being one of the very first of smart home automation features to exist, there are a wide variety of looks, types, and even feels when choosing your locks. Take the deadbolt to a whole new level that looks like a standard key lock but can open with just a touch from the finger of anyone that the lock has been programmed to recognize. At Smarter Homes, we’ll help you find the smart lock system that exhumes style and functionality.

5) Integration & Customization

We’re thinking ahead and ensuring that you’re educated about how your smart lock system works and its capabilities. At Smarter Homes, when we’re designing a smart home system we’re thinking of how everything connects to the brain of the smart home. Our smarter integrators tap into the very latest smart technologies staying in line with the style and functions of the locking devices that you’ve chosen. Some brands of smart locks aren’t always compatible in that they have closed API’s (Application Programming Interface), which is self contained and not able to communicate with other devices or the smart home hub. However, a solution can always be found by exploring different smart lock brands to find similar styles that have open API’s and can talk to any system.

*The calculated home technology budget range you will receive will includes parts, labor & accessories (Tax not included)
(a round number is OK)
Numerous structures on the property: Dock, Casita, Guest House, Barn, Gate etc. Check all that apply.
Prewire installation calculations assume you would like your home fully wired for ALL home automation technologies shown throughout the budget calculator, including 'future-ready' wiring. Prewire pricing can vary substantially based on what features you would like in your home. The wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring, not for electrical.
Prewire pricing will vary based on exactly what features you would like in your home. Read this article about the importance of wiring/cabling in today's "wireless" world. Your local Smarter Homes integrator is the best resource for exact prewire pricing. Wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring only, not electrical.
Keep in mind that our modern lifestyle and our home's automation technology systems are extremely reliant on a quality network and Wi-Fi system. Most homes are moving towards enterprise-grade hardware and away from the types of network products you could buy in an office supply store or a consumer computer store. We recommend that all homeowners consider the network and Wi-Fi system to be the most important system and installation within the home.
Higher-quality sound or higher-grade architectural finished speakers can range from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 PER ROOM
Basic background music system pricing ranges from $1,500.00 to $5,000.00 per room including all equipment, labor, and programming.
Range includes video sources such as AppleTV, a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and remotely-locating them for best aesthetics. A basic soundbar is included for better audio.
This is called “video distribution” and reduces the amount of audio/video equipment located at each TV location/room.
A surround sound system creates an immersive sound experience, much like a dedicated home theater room, though in a dual-purpose room such as a Family Room, Master Bedroom, etc. If you would like more than one surround system location, click on the "Add Another Surround System" button below
Typically, homeowners want to see the following areas: front of house, front door, driveway / gate, sides of house, and pool. If you are more concerned about security, you may want to add cameras for the perimeter of your property. Good-quality cameras see about 75 feet of distance on average. The high range of the budget estimate includes higher resolution cameras, better night vision, and longer surveillance recording time.
The installation of a lighting control system reduces wall clutter, allows preset lighting scenes at the push of a button, increases security through programming automation, and adds convenience.
Motorized shades add beauty, convenience, address privacy concerns, and can be used to save energy. If desired, provide your best guess on how many windows/shades you want to motorize. The higher-end of the budget range includes higher-end fabrics, large windows, and dual-roller shades (both sheer and privacy shades on one window).
For example, a house music app, an app to operate your TV, an app for lighting automation, an app for locks, an app for cameras, an app to open close garage doors & gates, etc. Or do you want to control the entire house through a single unified app that controls all the automation systems within the home?
Make your home feel larger by balancing the light between indoor and outdoor areas.
