Smart Locks

Question asked by abarr on Dec 7, 2015

We are having a discussion in our office regarding the use of smart locks in a commercial building.  Specifically, the one that cover the interior deadbolt and use an app to open.  The one proposed is an August Smart Lock and still has a key on the outside, but the interior has a mechanism that fits over the deadbolt.  Some of us in both the Building and Fire Department see the new deadbolt as non-compliant and others say different.  Any help on this would be appreciuated.  How has anyone else looked at this?  Does the code/standard address these?

 

Thanks.
