Will a new smart lock function with the existing cylinder or deadbolt that I have?
Smart Locks give homeowners an easy, efficient way to make access their homes without managing multiple sets of keys. They are technologically on-trend, fitting in with people's growing reliance on their smartphones to manage different aspects of their lives.
There are a few exceptions to this rule, but most of the smart locks dominating the can use the deadbolts already in place. If you do not have an integrated lock, and you have separate deadbolts and handles, then the old lock you have in place can be retrofitted to work with your new smart lock.
Usually, we will not have to make any major changes to your door. In fact, most of the time, we find the existing door can accommodate the new smart lock. Most of the smart locks are manufactured to function with current deadbolts and cylinders.
Will my existing cylinder or deadbolt work with my new smart lock?
Usually, the answer is yes. In fact, most of the smart locks available now are created to work with current deadbolts and cylinders. There are a few instances in which this is not true, but most of the most commonly sold smart locks will use the exiting deadbolts on a door.
If your home does not have an integrated lock, but does have a separate deadbolt and handle, then We can retrofit the lock so your new smart lock works with it.
In most cases, our locksmiths have determined that the existing door will work with a new smart lock, and we didn't have to make any serious changes.
Many of the most best-selling smart locks allow homeowners an alternative way to get into their homes in the event that the smart lock becomes disabled for any reason.

Does my phone operate the smart lock?
Yes. Just as the name implies, a smart lock is intelligent enough to work with your smartphone. Unless you have a phone that is incompatible with the lock system for some reason, you will use the Bluetooth connectivity to 'talk to' your smart lock.
That's why we often recommend one of the smart lock packages that also provide a keyed entry alternative. These avoid any distress should the smart lock be temporarily unavailable. It's a great option to consider when you make the decision about which smart lock you want to install.
The main purpose of smart locks is to make the repetitive act of locking and unlocking your doors more seamless and efficient than having multiple keys, while still maintaining your home safety. Because it does away with traditional keyed systems, implementing remote access from a smartphone through a smart lock eliminates many of the faults of regular key systems.

A majority of the smart locks that are populating the industry come with their own set of specific instructions, and our technicians have carried out many smart lock installation, so they know their way around your smart lock. They are trained to help you with your smart lock installation. The nature of the locksmith industry is gradually changing, and as a result, we have to make sure that our technicians are up to speed on all these changes.
Will my door be damaged in the process of a smart lock installation?
No. If a deadbolt is not yet in place, then one can be installed so that the smart lock installation goes smoothly. If your door has a separately installed deadbolt and a separately installed handle/knob set, then the knob set might have to be taken off. This will depend on which smart lock you decide to install on the door of your home.
The integrity of your door will not be compromised in the process of a smart lock installation. Most smart locks can be used with deadbolts that homeowners already have in place.
Smart locks: a Smart Option
While Our goal is to provide you the quickest service possible, the smart lock installation timeline depends on both the type of lock you currently have and the smart lock model you want to install.
The time is shorter if you have a Grade 1 deadbolt already installed on your door. That means the new smart lock simply has to be incorporated into the deadbolt. It will take a little bit longer if you do not have a deadbolt, as we will have to install one for the smart lock to operate.
