Locks provide security for our homes, keeping our families safe and important belongings secure. If you want the added convenience of keyless entry, you might want to consider upgrading it to a smart lock, making it easier for you to pick than a regular lock.

A decent smart lock should not only offer security but also convenience, so you can easily install and use it. Today, some smart locks can work with smart home products which you can operate with ease using your smartphone. If you are in the market for one, here are some of the best smart locks on the market, upgrading your security into the 21st century.

Samsung Ezon SHS-3321 Digital Door Lock

Although Samsung is a household name when it comes to smartphones and other electronic devices, they are also associated with locks or home security. The Ezon SHS-3321 comes with a sleek look and a nice feel, both of which say a lot about the product’s quality. Its advantage over regular deadbolts is that it is keyless, saving you the hassle of picking a door with a key. On top of that, it is bump-proof, meaning it doesn’t have a keyhole that intruders can pick. With that, the Ezon SHS-3321 proves that Samsung can also be a maker of impressive locks.
