Who Needs a Smart Lock?
With the modernization of technology comes several changes in our lifestyles. From the working mom to the stay at home dad, or the family with in-home childcare help or a cleaning service, or the college student out on his own for the first time, all of us could benefit from Shepherd Lock’s security and ease of monitored access to our homes, dorms, or other buildings we frequently go in or out of. Taking out our key or punching in a code every time we enter has become a hassle that is easily remedied.
1. People with Busy Lifestyles. On average, adults leave the home with at least one large handbag or backpack in addition to either a jacket or smaller personal bag. Add your morning coffee and suddenly your hands are full. Shepherd Lock provides busy students, professionals, or parents with the convenience of not having to take their keys out of their pocket or bag in order to lock the door behind them. A simple touch on the external hardware will trigger the lock to activate and the deadbolt to lock your door. Unsure if you’ve successfully locked the door? Take a look on the Shepherd Lock app and verify that the smart lock enabled doors of the home are closed and locked.
2. Home Services. In-home services can range from the babysitter, dog walker, grocery deliverer, cleaning company, repair company, and more. Instead of giving each service provider a spare key, the family pin code for the keypad, or having someone be home for their arrival, Shepherd Lock makes virtual key sharing easy to do and easy to monitor. With our mobile app you can see in real time who has entered your home and who has exited using their unique virtual key. The homeowner has the ability to grant access during certain times of the day, or on a repeating basis for weekly or monthly appointments in the home. The homeowner can edit or revoke virtual keys at any time.
3. House Rental Companies. One of the more common headaches when renting a property on a home rental website such as Airbnb or HomeAway is the difficulty of transferring keys from owner to guest or from guest back to owner. The homeowner does not want to risk his keys being duplicated or lost and the guest does not want to go hunting on the property for a hidden key or key box to gain entry. Shepherd Lock provides an easier, safer way to share virtual keys and to allow the homeowner to know when the guest has entered the home or has checked out and left the home.
4.) Frequently Accessed Buildings or Warehouses. Busy warehouses, package delivery companies, and other companies or professional buildings and event centers have many people coming and going. Currently, the most common options for controlling access include physical keys, a smart badge, or an unlocked door monitored by a security camera. The security and convenience of using Shepherd Lock on deadbolt doors that are used by many individuals is unparalleled. This will offer heightened security as each virtual key allows for real time awareness of who is coming and going.
