The Best Smart Locks For Your Google Home

Smart locks are a great way to add some convenience when coming and going from your house, and if you want one that works with your Google Home, there are some great options to consider.

There are a few different styles of smart locks to choose from, so the “best” one for you may be different than the “best” one for someone else, depending on your wants and needs. However, if you’re simply just looking for the best one that works well with your Google Home, we have you covered.

Nest x Yale Lock ($249)

If you want your smart lock to work with Google Home, there’s really no better choice than the Nest x Yale Lock. It’s made by a Google-owned company (Nest) in partnership with a reputable door lock company (Yale).

Since it’s a Nest product, there is no doubt that it will work seamlessly with your Google Home. However, be sure that you also get the Nest Connect, which will be an extra $30 (or if you already have a Nest Secure system, you can use that). Either one of these devices allows for the lock to connect to your Wi-Fi in order to control it with your Google Home, as well as remotely from your phone.

With the Google Home, you can lock the door from across the house or just check on its status to make sure if it’s locked or not. You can even add the lock to Google Assistant Routines.

Perhaps the only downside is that it doesn’t come with a traditional keyhole for manual override if that’s your thing. Otherwise, if the batteries were to die, you can hold a 9V battery to the terminals at the bottom of the lock and then enter in your passcode to unlock the door.
