Smart Bedroom Door Locks to Keep Your Room Safe

Ultimate Smart Bedroom Door Locks to Keep Your Room Safe

It’s great to live with roommates, but it’s also great to have peace of mind knowing that your bedroom is safe while you’re away.

Here’s a TL;DR list of smart locks. However, if you feel nerdy about this topic and want more details, we got you covered below.


Ways To Keep Your Room Safe

There are at least two ways to secure your room in a shared-accommodation-situation. You can either get a smart lock that’ll notify you straight away when the door is open, or buy a smart door sensor that will serve pretty much the same purpose. However, there are a few advantages of having a smart lock over a smart sensor. 


What Are The Benefits Of A Smart Lock For Your Bedroom?

With a smart lock, you’ll be able to generate virtual keys or PIN codes for people you want to have access to your room. Moreover, since all keys/PINs are unique, you’ll be able to check who in particular opened your door. Also, in an emergency situation, you can open a door to your room even when you’re miles away.

And in case you’re worried that it’ll throw off your roommates — well, it won’t. There are smart locks that you can install only from the inside of your bedroom, so from the outside, it looks just the same as before.


How To Make It Even Better?

Wyze Cam

Unlike a smart door sensor that requires a hub (like SmartThings) to work, the majority of smart locks connect directly to your router so you don’t need to worry about any other extra equipment. 

The only thing that can really complement your smart lock is a smart camera. Not only will you know when the door is open, but you’ll also be able to check straight away who’s inside your room. 

We highly recommend Wyze Cam for this purpose — a budget-friendly camera that connects directly to your WiFi, has local storage, and supports continuous video recording, so you won’t miss a single move.

Without further ado, let’s get to the smart locks list.
