Flashback to Smart Lock and Monitoring

After having a lever style handle on the exterior of the front door for several months and seeing it come loose from all the use it got, I decided to switch it out with a more stable and stylish thumb latch door handle, which also made for better integration with the Smart Lock and Security Monitoring System installed in the home. Eliminating the secondary manual lock from the door, leaving only the Smart Deadbolt Lock remaining with the new handle, allows for the front door to be locked, unlocked and monitored remotely from an app downloadable to the homeowner's phone. The app also lets the owner arm and disarm the security system remotely while monitoring the various other doors and motion detectors throughout the home.
