Install this smart door knob with a screwdriver in 2 minutes

A smart door knob differs from a smart lock. The latter usually involves the securing of a deadbolt on an exterior door. A smart door knob fits interior or apartment doors not connected to a deadbolt.

This particular model makes our list of the best smart door knob of the year.

Geek Tale door knobs are available in five colors and give you three new ways to unlock your door: through an app, with a fingerprint, or using a key.

Geek Tales makes installation simple. It takes a screwdriver and two minutes of your time to remove your old door knob and replace it with this smart door knob.

Once installed, you connect the door knob to a free app, and then you can add the fingerprints of those you want to have access to the lock. When it comes time to lock and unlock the door, you can use your fingerprints, the app, or an emergency key unlock.

This door knob is a good fit for apartment dwellers, those who share a home with others, Airbnb properties, exterior garage doors, and anywhere you want to add a bit of security.
