Are there any smart lock products that are capable of sending out alerts:

  • Alert via text/email when lock is opened with code
  • Alerts when lock is forcefully opened
  • Alerts when lock becomes unreachable due to Wi-Fi or signals being jammed

Please point me to such a product and recommend.


1 Answer 1


I think most locks will offer option number 1.

For 2: The Schlage locks state this Built-in alarm technology senses potential security breaches at the lock, while the low battery indicator offers advanced warning for battery replacement

Also I found August has the following alerts:

The Door is locked or unlocked manually

This alert notifies you when someone operates the August Smart Lock manually by hand or using a key.

The door is locked or unlocked by a specific user

This alert notifies you when a specified guest or owner operates the lock via Bluetooth. This includes unlocking the lock using the app

or Auto-Unlock.

The door is left ajar (3rd Gen Smart Lock and Smart Lock Pro only)

This alert notifies you if the door is left open for a specific amount of time. Specify the amount of time in the lock settings.

The door is Auto-Locked

This alert notifies you when your August Smart Lock Auto-Locks. Auto-Lock can be set up in the lock settings page.

The door is One-Touch Keypad locked (only if August Smart Keypad paired with lock)

This alert notifies you when the August Smart Lock is locked using the One-Touch Lock feature on the August Smart Keypad.

For 3: If the door cannot get on Wifi, it cannot contact you. The only way I could see something like this working is to have a device constantly pinging the door lock. If it can't find after a certain interval, send an alert.
