Benefits of a Smart Door Lock for NDIS Participants

Smart locks (keyless entry) have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for many good reasons. They offer a number of benefits, particularly for NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) participants, who may find it difficult to operate or access traditional locks. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the key benefits of a smart lock through the lens of an NDIS participant.


Increased Independence and Safety

For NDIS participants, a smart lock can offer improvements to both independence and safety. Our Smart locks can be operated using a smartphone, tablet, or voice assistant, which means that NDIS participants can lock and unlock their doors without needing to physically operate a key or handle. This can be especially beneficial for individuals with mobility or dexterity impairments. Additionally, our smart deadbolt comes with features including real-time notifications and remote monitoring, which can provide added safety and peace of mind to the home. 


Convenient Access Control

With a smart lock, NDIS participants can provide access to caregivers, support workers, or family members without needing to physically provide them with a key. This can be particularly useful for NDIS participants who require regular support, as it can make it easier for caregivers to access their homes without needing to coordinate key exchanges. Our smart locks come with additional features such as timed access codes and remote unlocking which can be excellent for providing short-term access to visitors, including support staff or delivery drivers. 


Integration with Other Smart Home Devices

Another great benefit is the integration the smart lock has with other devices. For example, a smart lock could be paired with a video doorbell allowing the user to see who is at the front door and let them in remotely, without needing to physically be at the door. Smart locks can also be integrated with voice assistants, which can allow NDIS participants to operate the locks on their homes using voice commands.


Keyless Entry

Keyless entry allows the user to lock and unlock their doors using a code, rather than needing to carry a physical key. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who may struggle to keep track of physical keys, or who may be at risk of losing them. Additionally, keyless entry can provide added security, as it can be more difficult for unauthorized individuals to gain access to the home.


My Final Thoughts

A smart lock can offer a number of benefits for NDIS participants. From improved independence and safety to convenient access control and integration, a smart lock can make it easier for NDIS participants to live their lives.
