Smart Lock Myths

Smart locks are undoubtedly some of the most convenient new technology that revolutionized the lock and security world today. However, there’s many common misconceptions about smart locks – typical of the way that society casts doubt on the newest and greatest technologies. Here’s a guide to some of the most common myths about smart locks, as prepared by the lock and security experts here at UTS Group.

Technical Complexity

Many people worry that smart locks are too technically complicated to be easily installed at their home or businesses. That’s a total misconception – and the smart lock installation experts here at UTS Group stand ready to efficiently and precisely install smart locks at your property at the drop of a hat.

Power Outages

Many smart locks actually run on battery power, so there’s no need to worry that the locks will stop functioning if there’s a power outage – not to mention the fact that many of them have backlit control panels that can easily be operated in the dark.

Hard Wiring

Since many smart locks are battery powered, there’s no need to worry about installing hard wiring to them. It’s easy to just snap the locks into place in your door – and they will automatically notify you when the batteries need to be recharged or changed, as well as having special backup entry protocols.


Smart locks are available to work with a variety of technology and network types, including WiFi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee – as well as Apple HomeKit, Google Home, Samsung SmartThings, and other smart home protocols. You can even connect your smart lock to voice-control assistants like Amazon Alexa!


Some people think that the digit touchscreen on smart locks wear down as the code continues to get pressed, allowing crafty burglars to more easily guess your input code. However, most smart lock types actually have fingerprint resistant, durable touch screens that won’t have this issue – and can even be operated in the rain or while wearing gloves!

Security Issues

People think mechanical locks are more secure than smart lock varieties – but this is a total myth. Many smart locks are available in the highest grade deadbolts possible, with ratings moderated by professional security experts to guarantee you the highest degree of durability and protection.
