Smart locks come in all types of designs and finishes. You have modern or contemporary designs as well as a wide variety of finishes like Satin Nickel or Matte Black. And you have an assortment of smart locks to choose from like deadbolts or lever locks with keypads or touchscreens. Schlage, one of the leading smart lock manufacturers recently announced a new smart lever lock is joining their Encode lineup. It’s the Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Lever Door Lock.

The new Encode Lever Smart Lock is designed for standard bore-hole doors which you normally find on the side of your house, garage, or maybe your home office.
