Smart locks may not seem enticing at first glance, but they're far and away one of my favorite intelligent home features. A deadbolt is something you use every day, and smart locks make the task of keeping your home secure that much more convenient. Today only, Woot is offering the Ultraloq U-Bolt Smart Deadbolt for $130, saving you $70 off the usual price. You can also opt for a version with a Wi-Fi bridge, which allows you to operate your smart lock remotely. That version will run you $150 and would usually cost $240, making it the smarter buy if you're interested in all the features this has to offer. Shipping is free with your Amazon Prime membership.
This secure deadbolt uses Bluetooth and a free app for iPhone and Android to make keyless entry a breeze. It lets you share temporary keys with guests, eliminating the need for physical copies. It'll even unlock your door automatically if you have your smartphone in your pocket, meaning no more shuffling groceries around while you hunt for the right key. Alternatively, you can enable Magic Shake, which unlocks your door when you shake your phone. Pretty neat stuff. The convenience doesn't just come with unlocking, though. The Ulock can automatically lock your door when you leave. Installation of the deadbolt is simple, and it'll work with most doors. The batteries last for up to 8,000 uses, too.
If you buy the version with the Wi-Fi bridge, you'll be able to remotely unlock your door, plus monitor activity and receive notifications. That'll also let you use your voice via Alexa or Google Assistant, plus IFTTT, with your new smart deadbolt.
This also includes a keypad, which is nice for those times when you don't have your phone or you aren't interested in sharing a passcode with a guest. It has a neat feature to shield your privacy. You can type in any number of random digits and still unlock your door as long as one correct password was typed.
