REVIEW – A few years ago I installed smart locks on the 2 doors in my office. One on the main door and one on a closet door in the room. I really like the lock on the door in the office, but it has a unique cylindrical design and now that I have developed arthritis in my dominant right hand, it is painful to open. So now I am looking for a replacement smart lock that works like t conventional door handle. Enter the Elemake Bluetooth Smart Biometric Door Lock with Keypad.
