Best of all it basically modifies your existing lock and the unit is kept inside the house and simply is added to the existing lock on your door.
You can also use your existing key to open your door if you want but what fun would that be? the unit is also self-powered with batteries so it will never be affected by a power failure and your phone connects to it via Bluetooth for convenience and in case of power issues such as an outage at your house.
