Smart door locks rank among the most popular smart accessories homeowners add to their dwellings, no doubt due to the increased security and convenience they bring. Typically, most smart lock designs include a bulky retrofit housing with a motor for the interior side of the door, plus a retrofit keyed cylinder or keypad for the exterior of the door. Level Lock, on the other hand, upended that paradigm by designing their smart lock system to retrofit the deadbolt and motor mechanisms inside of the door. This enables what Level refers to as invisible smart lock functionality, while not compromising the design aesthetic by allowing the homeowner to keep their existing visible door hardware.

All Level smart locks boast the internal deadbolt and motor mechanisms the company pioneered when they launched the first Level Bolt smart lock in 2020. That lock worked with the deadbolt hardware already on the outside of the door, and was mated with the inside-the-door Level bolt and motor. The Level app with Bluetooth connectivity or Apple HomeKit enabled opening and closing the lock.

Since then, they have expanded the line to include locks with door hardware—including interior paddle and exterior key cylinder housings of their own design—as well as additional entry options (including Touch, Apple Home Key, and NFC Key Cards), a keypad for key code access, and more.
