Smart locks are a must-have for the modern home, and the best Google Home smart locks make it easier than ever to add convenient controls and security. Not only do smart locks provide instant notifications when your door unlocks and work with smart speakers, but they also allow you to easily give family members, friends, or guests access to your home. Here are the best Google Home smart locks that you can add to your home today.

Smart security

All of the best Google Home smart locks offer voice controls like locking and unlocking your door remotely; however, many need a bridge or a hub to function. The Nest x Yale Lock with Nest Connect (opens in new tab) works independently by connecting directly to your Wi-Fi network, making it the easiest to set up and if you combine it with other Nest products. It has quickly become one of the most useful smart locks out there.

The other locks on the list require bridges or hubs to function, but the fourth-generation August Wi-Fi Smart Lock (opens in new tab) packs in both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, so you don't have to go out and find it separately. Plus, the latest August lock works with all of the smart home platforms, including Alexa and HomeKit, so everyone in your home can access it even if they prefer the comforts of another virtual assistant.
