My Review

The Dead Bolt Smart Lock Finishing looks Glossy and Presentable, referring externally people might think it is an expensive lock. But when you flip inside, the internal in built structure might have rooms for improvements. like using more quality finishing and a metal built nob instead of a plastic nob. Functionality wise, the Smart Lock can be opened in several modes, (1) Finger Print (2) Pass Code (3) Smart Tag (4) Physical Key, for this kind of pricing, personally I gave it a thumbs up.

In Conclusion, if you are looking for a Cool Smart Lock, and not considering forking out 2 Hundred plus for it, this lock will be a good choice
