Monitoring the security of windows and doors around the clock via a range of devices, smart locks have changed the way we look at home security in Wolverhampton and the Midlands. Of course, everything in life involves an element of risk and smart locks are no different. Living in a digital age, we’re often asked ‘can smart locks be hacked?’ The simple answer is yes, they can, although it all depends on the type of smart lock it is. Allow us to explain further, along with a few more frequently asked questions concerning smart locks.
Are smart locks hackable?
Any technology that connects to the internet has the potential to be hacked. However, smart locks that work with a traditional locking mechanism, that can only be physically opened with a key, offer the best resistance against hackers. Windows and doors fitted with the innovative Kubu lock gain access to the best of both worlds; allowing households to monitor their windows and doors in real-time while eliminating the risk of being hacked through unsafe remote unlocking features that traditional smart locks provide.

Do you need Wi-Fi for a smart lock?
Yes, the Kubu Smart Sensor communicates directly with your Kubu Hub, which is linked to your Wi-Fi network. Kubu provides updates on the status of your doors and windows, letting you know if they’re locked or unlocked no matter where you are in the world. To receive these notifications, you need to download the Kubu app onto your smartphone and connect to the internet or 4G.
Which smart lock brand is the best?
As we’ve outlined above, the Kubu smart lock allows you to keep an eye on your windows and doors without putting your home at risk to hackers.
