They're super easy to install, too, and you'll be ready to open your front door with Siri in minutes.

Our favorite door lock is the Level Lock+. We love its clean, unassuming design, and support for the latest HomeKit feature, Home Key. Home Key puts the keys to your home in the Wallet App for your iPhone and Apple Watch, so you'll always have a way you open the door. Wanna know what's even cooler? The feature also works when your iPhone's battery is depleted thanks to battery reserve mode.

Want to go completely keyless and phoneless? Then go for the Schlage Encode Plus. You can get it in two distinct designs and finishes, and it sports an on-device touch-based keypad to go with Home Key support. The keypad lets you leave home without your keys or your iPhone, and you can share temporary codes with friends and family who might be visiting.

What doorlocks work with HomeKit?

The ones in the list here are all HomeKit compatible, so that's a really good starting point. After that, things get a little murkier. Not all smart locks are made equal, and some don't support the HomeKit standard. Make sure you're looking for the standard on the product page of the lock you're looking at.

How do smart doorlocks work?

In the case of HomeKit, they connect to your home network, and work with the Home App on your iPhone or iPad. From there, you can unlock the door remotely, program scenes so that the door locks if other parameters are completed, amongst other things. In case that the lock doesn't work, there are always conitgencies like physical keys or keypads.
