'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

If you've been reading about how to create a smart home, you've probably compared the advantages of a smart lock over traditional locks. But did you know you can make your existing deadbolt smart in just 10 minutes without having to change your lock? All you'll need is a screwdriver.

The Bosma Aegis Smart Door Lock is super easy to install. It replaces the indoor portion of your current deadbolt and allows you to keep your key as a backup. So you just need to stick it on a door, then you're done.

Best of all, you can get it for just $89.99 during our Deal Days Sale, our version of Amazon Prime with a wide range of fabulous bargains. In fact, the Bosma Aegis is available here for $10 cheaper than Amazon's price, and you don't even need a coupon. Don't wait too long, though; the sale ends on October 12 at 11:59 PM.

When carrying more than you can comfortably hold, you no longer have to worry about fumbling around for your keys. Instead, just let Aegis automatically lock your door as you leave, then unlock it automatically when you come home.

The Aegis Smart Lock offers remote access so that you can unlock your door at any time, from anywhere. You'll also have guest access, which means your family and guests can quickly come and go even when you aren't there.

Create temporary passcodes service providers for tenants or guests and manage them from anywhere. The Aegis comes with bank-grade AES-128 advanced encryption, so you don't have to worry about anyone gaining unauthorized access to your home.

An automatic siren will notify you immediately of an attempted break-in. You will even get alerts from the Bosma App on your phone when the door is ajar. The app is available on Google Play and the App Store and works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

You can get even more from your smart deadbolt if you connect it to a Bosma Sentry system, which offers facial recognition and motion detection while making it possible for you to unlock the door with just a fingerprint. No wonder MakeUseOf rates it 9.7 out of 10 and says, "It's a great product at a reasonable price."

But now, you can get the Bosma Aegis Smart Door Lock for an even better price thanks to our Deal Days sale. It's only $89.99 until October 12 — no coupon necessary. And don't forget to visit our Deal Days collection for even more discounts!
