Although new to the market, the Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi deadbolt has impressive features and Schlage’s solid reputation behind it.
A Wi-Fi connection is built into the deadbolt, giving you smartphone access from anywhere without a bridge. You can even control the lock with your voice through Alexa or Google Assistant.
The Schlage Home app or the Amazon Key app lets you manage up to 100 user codes, so everyone in your household, plus guests, can access your house as long as they have an active code.
The touchscreen is fingerprint resistant to prevent anyone from guessing your codes by studying which numbers have smudges, and a built-in alarm will sound if it detects tampering. The Encode even works with Ring products.

ASecureLife’s recommendation: We ranked The Encode above many other smart door locks not only because the Wi-Fi connection is built in but also because the Encode has a higher security rating. Plus, with up to 100 individual user codes, the Encode is ideal for rental properties or Airbnb.
