Industry assessment provides in-depth analysis of smart door lock market

Research from Parks Associates’ latest market assessment, Smart Door Lock Market Assessment, finds that one in four U.S. broadband households intend to purchase a smart door lock in the next 12 months. These intentions will expand the demographics of product owners over the next several years into more early mass-market segments, including households with moderate incomes and smaller homes.

Smart Door Lock Purchase Intention: Standalone or System Integration

“Market dynamics are setting up the smart door lock market for growth,” said Denise Ernst, Vice President, Parks Associates. “In addition to security, smart locks provide peace of mind and convenience through access control and notifications of use. These smart home solutions can also expand their capabilities by integrating with smart speakers with voice assistants, adding to the positive user experience.”

Big players Schlage, Yale, and Kwikset dominate market share, but new entrants and smaller players such as Latch, LockState, and Hampton’s Array Door Lock can gain traction by creating a better user experience and added benefits and expanding compatibility with additional devices and providers. Many partnership opportunities exist in new construction and rental properties.

“Many innovative builders are starting to include built-in smart home solutions in their models,” Ernst said. “Smart door locks are an easy and obvious addition to new homes and multifamily constructions, so partnerships with homebuilders and real-estate developers will have significant implications in broadening the user base.”
