Frequently Asked Questions
Will a new smart lock function with the existing cylinder or deadbolt that I have?
Usually, major changes to the door will be not required. Most of the time, the existing door is compatible with a new smart lock. In fact, most of the smart locks available now are created to work with current deadbolts and cylinders.
Our installation experts might need to make a few small changes to your current lock for your new smart lock to work properly. Many of the smart lock models are designed to work solely with deadbolts, so they might not work with some integrated locks and handles or some mortise and rim cylinder locks.

As long as you do not have an integrated lock, and you have separate deadbolts and handles, We can retrofit the lock for your new smart lock.
Will I be able to get into my home in a different way than the 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.
