With today’s tech, there are endless ways to do everyday things — including locking your door. The ULTRALOQ Smart Lock ensures you have complete control of who enters the front door. 

Whether you live on a cul-de-sac road in a gated community or on a bustling city block, a smart lock comes in handy. You have control over letting people in and out of your home, and you’re able to connect all of the activity to your smartphone. What’s great about this smart lock is that there are six ways to open your door without a key. You can unlock the smart lock with the touch-and-go fingerprint ID scanner, a no-peeping keypad, the auto-unlock function, via your smartphone, by shaking it to open or with a traditional key. 

Personalize who comes in and out via Bluetooth. You can give out access codes to family members. Plus, you can specify when — by time and date — to open your door. Not to mention, if fingerprint access is the easiest route for you, there’s even an option for you to store up to 120 fingerprints. If necessary, the device also lets you pick out up to 60 four to eight-digit backup codes to unlock it.

Over 3,000 Amazon shoppers have already given it the thumbs up as well as 4.4 out of five stars. One customer explained that the smart lock fingerprint reader “is very accurate.”

“It was our first smart fingerprint lock ever, and I already like it,” they wrote in a review. “The lock is very responsive, the fingerprint reader is very accurate — has notification and alert on our phone and a log of when it was opened/closed and by which profile. So far I’m very happy with it because [it’s one] less key on my keychain and much more convenience to use my fingerprint to unlock it.” 

A four-star review from a customer said that you may need to reset it if you don’t get it right the first time around. 

“The software is incredibly clumsy and doesn’t navigate errors well,” the shopper wrote. “As many previous reviewers have written, you will probably need tech support if it doesn’t go perfectly the first time. When in doubt, reset the lock, delete the product in the app and start all over.”

Though you may be skeptical about automated locks, this one has backups for your backups.
