It's Time to Upgrade to a Smart Door Lock. Here's Why.

New year, new deadbolt.

"Our houses are properties we invest our hard-earned money into — protecting it is part of ownership responsibility. Our loved ones reside in our homes and our personal security, as well as theirs, is of the utmost importance," says Collen Clark, JD, lawyer and the founder of Schmidt & Clark, LLP. "In light of the pandemic and the current economic distress, things can be tough and people are ripe with enough motives to commit illegal activities in order to survive. Looking out for each other's safety is an obligation we collectively share legally and morally."

And one of the easiest ways to boost your home safety? Upgrade your long ignored deadbolt and invest in one embedded with powerful smart home technology. Below, five things you didn't know you could do with Array By Hampton's state-of-the-art connected deadbolts, the Wi-Fi Smart Door Lock and the Revive Retrofit Door Lock with Checklock Technology

  1. You can lock and unlock your doors remotely with smart deadbolts.
    Just so we're all on the same page, they may be called "smart locks," but yes, they unlock as well as lock the door. With the Wi-Fi Smart Door Lock and the Revive Retrofit Door Lock, you can lock or unlock your door remotely through the Array By Hampton App. The Array App allows you to create custom codes and restrict visitors' access so you'll even have better insight in who's coming and going. No more worrying about your child, a trusted house cleaner, babysitter, or handy person gaining entry to your home if you're not present--or unwanted guests returning at a later date!
  2. You won't need a computer science degree to set up our smart door locks.
    The entire Array By Hampton products suite is designed for quick setup and intuitive use. While our one-app technology is a breeze to use, you can also connect our door locks via a pin code to both Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa for a voice-activated experience.
  3. The app to control your smart deadbolts is completely free.
    Speaking of that handy app, it's totally free. You won't have to worry about paying an additional fee for app access or a monthly subscription fee. Visit to download the app and learn more.
  4. You can integrate your smart lock with your existing deadbolt.
    With this smartly designed device, you can simply upgrade and adapt your existing deadbolt making it a connected lock for remote operation (hub included with purchase). This means it's ideal for apartment dwellers or for DIYers looking to upgrade to a smart door without changing out existing door hardware. The Checklock technology also enables you to see on the app whether the door is open, closed or ajar, in addition to knowing if it is locked or unlocked. The long-lasting battery can last up to a year on a single charge, so there's no need for regular visits to your rental unit to recharge your deadbolt.
  5. You can see detailed reports on locking/unlocking activity.
    For our Wi-Fi Smart Door Lock, you can easily share access with other household members. You can also create one-time user codes and schedule access for authorized users who need entry to your home. So you can see who's accessed the lock, a detailed history of all locking and unlocking action is available in the app's activity log. Did we mention this lock also comes in three elegant finishes? Satin nickel, Tuscan bronze, or polished chrome, are all on offer so your spiffy new connected deadbolt blends in elegantly with your door.
