I'm looking to add a smart lock to my door. I don't know much about locksmithing, also not a native speaker, so I'm not sure if this is a "deadbolt" or not.

I was almost decided for the August Smart Lock Pro, but I'd like to confirm if it can be installed directly on my door.

  • This looks like a commercial-style latchset even...I take it this is within a multifamily building, no? Jun 30, 2019 at 17:03
  • yes, that looks like a deadbolt ... is there a missing handle?

  • @jsotola You can only lock and unlock, from inside and outside, using the key. Does that answer your question?

  • That's a modern latch-set. You can tell because it has lever handles instead of knobs. That means there's a fair chance somebody builds smart lock-sets for that door. Jul 3, 2019 at 15:59

Yes it does seem that they are available.

That is a Mortise lock-set, I did a web search for "smart mortise lock" and found a couple, the question is weather they will fit your particular set up ( and can you afford one ).

You will need to do some research. Most of the ones i see are set up with the latch on the bottom and the bolt on the top but yours is opposite that.

Now go forth and conquer.

If you live in a big city find a dedicated locksmith/lock-set retailer.
