SimpliSafe Smart Lock Product Overview

To keep track of who enters and leaves your home, the SimpliSafe Smart Lock sends mobile alerts when anyone locks or unlocks the door. The lock can also be used with the SimpliCam indoor camera and SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro, so you can see and hear who is outside your door, and remotely let in the people you know. The SimpliSafe Smart Lock is easy to install over almost any deadbolt —all you need is a screwdriver.
