I've always wanted a smart home, perhaps since I first saw Star Trek as a child. After smart light bulbs, one of the first smart home accessory you should get for your home is a smart door lock. I love the ability to unlock my door, or make sure I locked it, from my app. I can do this now with the Kevo Touch-to-Open Smart Lock ($229) from Kwikset. What I like most about the Kevo is that it's from a trusted door lock security vendor, so you can feel safe. For example, they include serious security features like BumpGuard protection. This prevents bad guys from trying to use traditional burglar techniques to override the mechanical key mechanism.
