Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt
Review date: 11/02/2020
This smart lock from Schlage connects to WiFi, which means you can lock and unlock your door from anywhere. Sitting in traffic and need to let your dog walker in? Just open the app and unlock the door. It also works with Alexa and Google Assistant, so you don't even need to get up to unlock your door when you're at home anymore. Just shout, "Hey Google, open sesame," and boom, your door will unlock. Is it safe and secure? As with anything with a constant connection to the internet, there are vulnerabilities. And what happens when your WiFi goes down? Are you, or the dog walker, stuck out in the cold?
What could happen if something goes wrong
Schlage may disclose your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes, which isn't great but also isn't uncommon. Unfortunately, we couldn't determine if this product mets our Minimum Security Standards because the company didn't respond to us. So we don't know what measures they take to protect their users. Not knowing that, we have to warn this product could come with *Privacy Not Included.
