Not really a Tesla topic but given the discerning tech-types here I’d assume there be knowledgeable advice around.
Now that I’m keyless with the car I really only need a good electronic deadlock for my inside garage door.
Preferably smartphone (Android) and keypad access, long battery life.
The Akaso sw805 look ok, but some mixed reviews, and not cheap!

I've been looking into this as well, being able to get rid of carrying keys around does sounds quite tempting.

With my home & garage there are dead bolts already installed. I did look at some of the Samsung ones that bunnings carry but i dont think they would work in my instance.

I've narrow my selection down to either the Danalock V3 or the August Smart Lock both of which work with existing dead bolt installs, so are more DIY. Things i am considering are the quality of the Phone App, cost (if any) for additional Digital Keys, any Subscription Fees for Online Services, Integration with IFTTT/Zigbee/Z-Wave/HomeKit, Battery Life, Review ratings etc.

I think the Danalock is winning for me at the moment.
