What Smart Locks Work With SimpliSafe

What Smart Locks Work With SimpliSafe? (2022 Updated)

SilpiSafe is a home security system that uses wireless gadgets and a base station to keep an eye on your house for thieves. If you have the SimpliSafe app on your phone, you can use it to control and arm your system.

SimpliSafe is made up of two main parts: the base unit and the portable door/window sensors that you put around your home. They will send a message to the base station if someone breaks into your house while you’re not there. In an emergency, the base station will then call the cops and up to five people you choose.

It makes smart locks that connect to its own safety system. Aside from that, the only smart locks that work with SimpliSafe right now are August ones. The August Smart Lock 3rd Generation, August Smart Lock Pro, and August Smart Lock Wi-Fi are these.

Top Picks for Smart Locks Compatible with SimpliSafe

1. August Wi-Fi Smart Lock (4th Generation)

The August Wi-Fi Smart Lock can talk to your phone through Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Z-Wave technology, which lets the door open itself. You can also make virtual keys for family and friends, keep an eye on what they’re doing, and see reports on your behavior.

With the August Smart Lock, the door is locked in place by a powered bolt, which is safer than regular deadbolts. The door won’t open if someone tries to force it open without the key.

You can open your door from anywhere in the world with this smart lock. All you need is an app on your phone or computer (Windows or Mac). Friends and family can also get digital keys to your house so they can use them when you’re not there. You can set geofences on the August Smart Lock to make it lock itself when you leave the house and open itself when you get back.

2. SimpliSafe Smart Lock Compatible with SimpliSafe

SimpliSafe Smart Lock is a system that blends a smart lock with SimpliSafe’s well-known wireless home security system. The gadget works with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can use voice commands to control it or an app on your phone to control who can use it, whether they are family or friends.

With the SimpliSafe App, you can make changes to the SimpliSafe Smart Lock from anywhere. Any kind of deadbolt or deadbolt with a single cylinder will work with this lock. You can use your voice or a PIN code to lock or open your door with SimpliSafe Smart Lock. You can also watch live video from your front door camera through the app, so you always know who is at your door.

3. August Smart Lock

With the August Smart Lock with Connect Wi-Fi Bridge, you can lock and open your door from afar. It has an algorithm built in that opens the door automatically when it feels that you are coming. Using the August app, you can also give friends and family temporary codes (or “keys”) that will let them into your home. You can try Amazon Key for free with the August Smart Lock. This lets delivery people into your home when you’re not there.

You don’t have to mess around with keys or try to remember if you locked your front door because the August Smart Lock’s keypad uses a simple PIN code to let you in. This smart lock can be used on any deadbolt that has up to 3 inches of space between the door’s inside edge and the jamb (where the frame meets the door). It works with IFTTT, Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, and Samsung SmartThings.

4. August Smart Lock Pro (3rd Generation)

The August Smart Lock Pro works with SimpliSafe, but you need a hub instead of Wi-Fi to connect it. With its WiFi feature, this deadbolt lets you lock and open your doors from anywhere. Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant can all work with the third-generation smart lock. You can give friends and family virtual keys to your home through the August app.

You can enter a code into the smart lock’s touchscreen keypad to open the door without using your phone. The lock can be used with many different locks, and it comes in black or silver. You’ll be able to tell when someone opens or closes the door with their own device or key fob as long as you’re connected to the internet.

When someone enters or leaves your property, you can set up geofencing so that they get a push notification telling them which door was opened or locked by whom. This way, you can see who is at the door from your phone.

How Does SimpliSafe Work With Door Locks?

You can decide who can come into your home with SimpliSafe’s keypad door lock that works with the company’s surveillance systems. If you want to keep your kids or pets safe at night and have kids or pets, this could help. If you link your SimpliSafe system to a Z-Wave hub, when the alarm goes off, it can also set off other gadgets in your home.

It works the same way as any other deadbolt on your door: once the deadbolt is released, you can push the door open and walk through. You can also use the app or passcode to have the door close itself when you leave.

How to Integrate SimpliSafe Smart Lock with The SimpliSafe System?

Connecting SimpliSafe Smart Lock with its security system only takes a little time. Here is how it goes:

  1. Make sure that the lock is installed correctly on your door.
  2. Using the lock’s keypad, go to the menu and navigate to Devices option.
  3. Next, select Add Device option and scroll down to locks and select your SimpliSafe lock.
  4. The system will ask you the question—have you installed the lock on your door? Click Yes. Obviously, you have to ensure your lock is installed before integration.
  5. Press the button behind the lock’s battery plate. Afterwards wait for the Base Station to confirm that the lock has been added.
  6. Follow other instructions on your lock’s keypad to conclude the process.

Conclusion

So that would be it for this article.

SimpliSafe smart locks along with the three August Smart Locks are the ones that works best with the SimpliSafe system. Perhaps in the future other smart locks may also get compatible with the SimpliSafe System.
