Introduction: Why you should add a trusted face to smart lock
Most people are familiar with the traditional methods of locking their doors, such as using a key or a code. However, there is a new method of locking your doors that is becoming increasingly popular: using a trusted face.
Adding a trusted face to your smart lock can have many benefits. For one, it can make it easier for you to unlock your door when your hands are full.
