I don't have smart locks, because it would be a waste of money.

We don't use our front door. We enter through the garage. Have a security system and a 70 lb Doberman.

Logically, they aren't any more safe or unsafe than someone with a traditional lock who hides their key somewhere.

You post a video of a guy using a laser to hack into one like the average criminal who is committing B&Es has that kind of skill, knowledge, or resources.

40% of B&Es are from forced entry (breaking the door, lock, window)...Smart locks aren't any more or less secure to this type of break in.

32% are from an unlocked door....

A smart lock would reduce the instances of an unlocked door, so you could argue it's safer in mitigating individual carelessness.

So a hundred bucks is where you draw the line on wasteful spending ... not in having Alexas in every (bath)room with smart lights and switches on every device in your home.

Okay.

The Alexas serve a purpose. We use them every day for a list of things. I really don't understand your hatred of them.

I don't use door locks. I don't even carry a key with me. Why would I spend money on a smart lock?

If we were people that; let others into our house often, used the front door, used a keylock. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.
