Has anyone ever thought that a smart lock would be detrimental in a fire or other emergency when you or a child has to exit a home in a hurry? Just asking. Thanks to all, P

I think that smart systems, on the contrary, are adapted to simplify our lives. And when a fire occurs, there should be an automatic door opening function.

You can buy the smart lock with fire protection function. When there is a fire, the smart lock will not damage, because of fireproof coating. It can be opened easily.

This is a non-issue, at least with Schlage smart locks. The Schlage units default to always enable exit, even if the battery is dead.

If this weighs heavily on your mind, consider a unit named a "panic bar". Definitely no egress issues with those...

Nowadays, smart locks are very ideal. You don't have to worry about keys, which in most cases are always missing. You just have to remember your password and tada- it would open easily and handy.

If you're talking about security, many intelligent locks have an automatic door opener feature. I got myself a locksmith who implemented it in our door and installed the appropriate debugging system.
