Can smart locks be hacked?

0 minutes, 46 seconds Read

As with any technology, there is always a possibility of a smart lock being hacked. However, reputable smart lock manufacturers employ strong encryption algorithms and security protocols to protect against unauthorized access. Additionally, many smart locks also have built-in tamper alarms that will alert you to any suspicious activity. It is important to always use strong passwords and enable two-factor authentication to further enhance the security of your door lock.

One potential vulnerability to keep in mind is the possibility of someone cloning your key fob or smartphone access. To minimize this risk, it is important to keep your smart lock’s access credentials secure and never share them with anyone. Regularly updating your lock’s firmware and maintaining good cyber hygiene habits such as avoiding public Wi-Fi networks can also help to protect against potential hacking attempts.

Considering all the security features, smart locks are always going to be harder to ‘hack’ compared to traditional door locks.
