Giving people access to your home is a high honor, and it’s one you should be able to give and take freely without having to change all your locks, or make up a bunch of keys. And with the help of the Schlage Sense smart lock—available at Home Depot today for $199, down from a list price of $399—you’ll have total control over who’s coming and going. This deal comes with both the smart lock itself and a matching right-handed flair lever handle set.
In our Schlage Sense review, we said that “if reliability is what you really want from your smart lock, the Schlage Sense should be your top choice.” And it really does handle its basic functions well, with a smooth lock/unlock performance (sadly a rarity in the smart lock space) and lock codes that are easy to create and delete.
On that note, you can create up to 30 unique codes for all the people coming in and out of your house, so you can provide limited access as needed. An auto-lock on a timer can help if you forget to lock up (lock status can be checked in a mobile app), while a beeping alarm option can let you know when the door opens and closes. You can also add voice control when you connect to Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Homekit, and more.
We gave the Schlage Sense smart lock 4 stars out of 5, noting that “the Schlage Sense is the device to beat.”
