When it comes to installing a smart lock, it's always best to have a professional locksmith do the job. Not only do they have the knowledge and experience to ensure that your smart lock is installed securely and works efficiently, but they can also explain everything you need to know to use the lock and keep your home safe and secure. If you choose to install the lock yourself, we recommend that you replace the remote with a passage (corridor knob). That way, you can close the door and it will catch on.
If you leave the locked entry knob on the door, someone (babysitter, child, guest, friend, dog walker, nurse, emergency medical service) may turn the knob with their thumb and, when the door is closed, the lower lock will lock. If you have a key, you can still open the door. However, replacing the knob with a pass-through knob reduces the likelihood of blockages. When it comes to choosing between installing a smart lock yourself or having it done by a professional locksmith, the latter is always the better option. Professional locksmiths have years of experience in installing locks and can guarantee that your smart lock will be installed correctly and securely.
They can also provide advice on how to use your smart lock and keep your home safe. If you don't want to hire a locksmith, you can always buy the lock yourself and have our physical security specialists install it for you. However, this is not recommended as they may not be as experienced as a professional locksmith in installing locks.
