Locks are used to providing security to the objects or entrances considered precious. Conventional locks used to be available in pair with a metal object with a set of grooves unique to the lock. This mechanical object is known as the key of the lock. Every mechanical lock has a key with specific grooves unique to that lock only. This was the main point of security for the locks. They provided security as well as a failsafe method for accessing the lock. However, the method often failed due to significant reasons such as key duplication, physical forcing, etc. The modern version of locks, such as the digital smart lock, is used more commonly to provide high-security levels. These locks are highly efficient in comparison with modern locks.
The term smart lock is comprised of two words brilliant and lock. Both these words are used in a combination to express the functionality of the lock system. The digital smart lock consists of an advanced locking system with artificial intelligence software. The term digital in the digital lock suggests that the locking system takes input from the individuals who try to access the door in the form of digital signals. These signals are sent to the intelligence software to determine the authenticity of the individual trying to access the door. This is the reason these types of locks are considered smart locks because they make all the decisions by themselves. This reduces the human efforts and interference in locking and unlocking the lock system.
