Smart Lock

locks have gained wide popularity among homeowners due to their stylish design, seamless operation, keyless convenience and enhanced security. Being able to use mobile devices to control your entry door remotely, as well as monitor your home’s front door status have become the new fashion for young homeowners. Before you jump into the , we want to offer 5 tips for you to bear in mind when you shop for the ideal smart locks.

Determine the budget

You only get what you paid for. It is especially true in the smart lock market. While a regular entry door lock may only cost you from $50 to $500, the smart lock can easily cost you thousands of dollars with its pricey kit and complicated installation . Although there are less expensive smart locks with basic functions in the market, you need to do a thorough research to figure out the features you need.

Choose the Wireless Network

Smart locks work with high technology, but you might not realize that they have so many different wireless network options. For example, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Z-Wave. A smart lock can be embedded with one or two connection types, and you need to choose the most suitable ones for your home needs.

Decide How to Install

Many people prefer to do things all by themselves to save money, but it might not be the case for smart locks. You can read carefully the product specifications and installation guidelines to try to install it by yourself, but the process could be time consuming, and you will find it painful to go wrong. It is always recommended to use a professional locksmith to install high-technology smart locks for you.

Familiarize the Top Brands

Not all the smart locks are made the same. Like you choose your mobile phone, you probably want to go with the famous smart lock brands for their reliability and quality. Meanwhile, warranties and customer service are also with established manufacturers.

Check the Compatibility

It always sounds intriguing to upgrade your home security by switching to smart locks, but you may have to consider the compatibility of the smart locks. Most of the smart locks cannot work with 3 point lock doors, and you may need to customize the lock if your current entry door is not the normal type.

It is true that smart locks offer enormous benefits and convenience to life, but you need to carefully evaluate the budget, networks, installations, brands, as well as compatibility before you make the decision. Of course, instead of spending all that time researching smart lock options, you could always have a consultation with experts of that industry.

Supreme Court of India

Jaipur, August 8: Six MLAs who had won in the 2018 Rajasthan assembly elections on the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) ticket moved the Supreme Court on Saturday seeking the transfer of the case against their merger with the Congress to the top judicial body. The in their case is currently underway in the Rajasthan High Court. BSP Twist to Rajasthan Political Row: Mayawati’s Party to File Plea in HC Tomorrow Against Merger of Its 6 MLAs With Congress.

The six legislators – R Gudha, Lakhan Singh, Deep Chand, JS Awana, Sandeep Kumar and Wajib Ali – had joined the Congress en masse in September 2019. Speaker CP Joshi had approved their merger as the entire legislature party of the BSP in Rajasthan had switched camps.

The BSP, led by former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati, moved the High Court on July 28 with a plea challenging their merger. The party claimed that since it is registered as a “national political party”, such a merger could be validated only if all state units of the BSP merge with the Congress.

The case by BSP in the Rajasthan HC was preceded by a whip issued to the six MLAs, directing them to vote against the Ashok Gehlot-led government in the state in case of a trust vote.

If the High Court order annuls their merger with Congress and that the MLAs still belong to the BSP, they would be required to adhere to the party whip. If the legislators violate the whip issued to them in case of a trust vote, their membership of the House could be cancelled.
