The most reliable way to ensure that you’re never facing a crisis involving lost keys is to install a smartlock on your front door. Thanks to smartlock technology, keys become a thing of the past so you never have to worry about losing or misplacing them again. Just like security alarms, smartlocks can also be installed as a DIY project and some are quite a bit more affordable than what they once were. Depending upon the brand and model you buy, you will then be able to unlock your door with either your fingerprint or a secret passcode. With some, you can even use your smartphone or tablet to unlock the door for you!
