10 Best Smart Locks
for October 2022

Smart locks are a new kind of lock that work with your smartphone, allowing you to lock and unlock your door from anywhere. They're also safer, more secure, and more convenient than traditional locks. Smart locks come in many varieties, from deadbolts to keypad locks to keyless entry locks, but all of them use your phone (or an app, in the case of keyless entry locks) to open and close the lock. Some smart locks also let you lock and unlock the door from your smartphone, but manually.

Smart locks are popular among homeowners and renters alike, but are they right for you? We test smart locks in the Different Guide Reviews Lab for ease of use, including installation, set up, and unlocking the door. We also evaluate smart locks for security, including whether they can lock and unlock the door without your phone, and how easy they are to program. Our top pick is the Kwikset Kevo, which we tested in the Different Guide Reviews Lab for ease of use, security, and installation.

Kwikset's Powerbolt 2 door lock is easy to install, and it's one of the most affordable electronic locks we tested. But it has a flimsy feel, and it didn't quite live up to the advertised 30-second lock time.
