Whats the difference between a smart lock and an electronic lock?

Can you still use a key with a smart lock?

Yes, you can use a physical key from the original deadbolt to lock and unlock your door even when you have an August Smart Lock installed. The August Smart Lock retrofits to an existing deadbolt on the interior side of the door.

Are electronic locks better?

Or are they more secure than traditional locks? The answer is that they can be. If a keyless lock means you're more likely to lock your doors every time you leave, less likely to hide a key underneath a doormat, or make tons of extra keys to share that you eventually lose track of, then yes, they can be more secure.
