Hi guys! Just want to know what are the difficulties encountered on having a door smart lock? I'm planning to buy next month, but quite hesitant thinking how can I open my door from outside just in case the battery ran out. Have you guys already encountered that?

Having a smart lock is awesome! But, I understand your concerns. Depending on what you buy, you should be alerted to a low battery. It also depends if you are using the lock as a stand-alone or hooking it up to a smart hub or security panel via z-wave. Most of them come with the key function, in case something like that were to happen. Other than that having a smart lock has been fantastic.

Smart locks will always prompt if the battery is low so you could be alerted. And as @Infinite Protection said, you may hook it to a smart hub to easily alert you remotely.
