Currently, turning your home into a smart home is becoming more and more popular. And why wouldn’t that be the case? Smart home devices just make life so easier.
I never expected how nifty these smart locks are until I got one myself. Nowadays, I very rarely worry about keys.
Apple’s iOS makes for almost 30% of the market share.
This makes Siri one of the most widely used virtual assistants today. But not all smart locks to work properly with Siri. And let’s not forget that they also need to be compatible with Apple’s HomeKit. HomeKit is basically the software, or link, between your Apple smart devices and your smart-home appliances.
We all know that Apple does not like to work with other third-party devices, but luckily for us, there are a few different options we can choose from when it comes to smart locks that work with Siri.

List of Smart Locks That Work With Siri
These are the best smart locks that work with Siri.
August Smart Lock + Connect
The August Smart Lock Pro is a great way to provide your home with an extra layer of security. In fact, this is one of the two smart locks that you will also find on Apple’s website.
All you need is your iPhone, and you can do all sorts of wonders with this smart lock. It has one of the best HomeKit integrations. You can literally lock or unlock your door from any place. It takes just a few minutes to set up and manage the access to your home for your friends, guests, family members, or housekeepers.
This means that you will not have to worry about keys getting lost or copied without you knowing. On top of that, you will have a detailed log of who is entering and leaving your home.
This smart lock also comes with a DoorSense feature, which monitors whether or not the door is actually closed and locked.
However, using this smart lock does not mean you are stuck only with it. You can still use a regular key to open or lock your door. The auto-unlock feature is also very helpful as when you are at your doorstep, the door will be already unlocked for you automatically.
And, yes, the August Smart Lock works with Siri, which means you will be able to control the lock with just a few simple voice commands.
The only downside to this smart lock is that it is compatible with single cylinder deadbolts.
Yale Assure Lock SL
Remember when I said one of the two smart locks that you can find on Apple’s website was the August smart lock? Well, this is the second one.
The Yale smart lock is in the same price range as the other smart locks in this list, and it comes in several different variations. You can choose from a keyless touchscreen model, a touchscreen with a keyhole, or keypad with a keyhole.
What happens is this lock replaces your existing deadbolt. But unlike your old standard deadbolt, it offers everything you have come to expect from a smart lock.
It works with the August app, which allows you to lock, unlock, and monitor who goes in and out of your home with unparalleled ease. You can also customize the lock settings by sharing access to different people, granting time-specific access, and so much more. It even lets you know what is happening in real-time.
The door sensor that is included (Unlike other models, you will not have to purchase that separately.) is a nice and easy way to be sure that your door is locked.
The really nifty thing that I like about smart locks is that when you get near your door, it will automatically unlock as long as you have your phone on you. And when you walk away—it automatically locks again.
If you don’t have your phone, of course, you can always enter the code using the touchscreen or the keypad, depending on your model.
The Yale Assure Lock is also compatible with Siri, which you can use to lock, unlock, and check the status of the lock at any point in time.
Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt
Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is easy to use and does the job. It is compatible with Apple HomeKit, and you can use Siri to control and customize the access to your home.
Installation-wise, this smart lock is relatively easy to set up, but you will have to do some preliminary measurements to make sure it will be a good fit as it has certain limitations, and it may not fit all doors. And if your door is too thick, for example, you can always purchase a custom-made smart lock directly from Schlage.
After you install this lock and pair it with your smartphone, you are good to go. All the features can be managed through the app.
You can operate the lock using the touch screen too.
With this lock, you will not have to worry about keys getting lost or copied. You can give access to friends and family members too. You can assign different people different access codes, which then you can set so that they are active during specific time windows.
You can choose from four to eight-digit code length.
Sold separately is the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi adapter, which can be used for locking and unlocking the smart lock from anywhere.
If you really do not want to worry about your door being locked, you can make it so that the lock locks the door automatically after a predetermined time period.
And lastly, there will always be a detailed log that will keep track of who has unlocked or locked the door.
Reagle Smart Lock
The Reagle smart lock is fully capable of delivering one of the best experiences when it comes to smart locks.
First, let’s address the most obvious things—the price. Smart locks are usually expensive, but this one is significantly cheaper than the majority of the other brands and models. This, however, does not take away from its quality in any way.
In fact, it can be considered one of the best value smart locks that work with Siri.
It is easy to install, all you need is a regular screwdriver, and has all the features that you will ever need from a smart lock.
You can manage and share access to your home. The lock can automatically lock the door after a pre-set time period.
This smart lock easily integrates with Apple’s Homekit, and you can use Siri to lock and unlock your home.
In addition to that, you can also use the app, the keypad, or a key to operate the lock.
If you want to be able to monitor the status of the lock remotely, you will need to set up the Apple Home Hub. And if you’re going to make use of the real-time monitoring of the lock, you will need to use the Reagle Gateway. Both Apple Home Hub and Reagle Gateway are sold separately.

VOCOlinc Smart Door Lock
The VOCOlinc is another smart lock that works great with both Siri and Apple Home app. And while many of the other smart locks I have reviewed here are usually cross-compatible, this smart lock works only with iOS devices and does not support Android.
It is fully compatible with the Apple HomeKit and works great. You can use it for remote access to lock and unlock your door.
This smart lock comes at a very fair price, but nonetheless delivers lots of neat features. With it, you will be able to manage, provide access, or grant access according to predetermined time frames to up to 30 users.
It also offers real-life monitoring of who locks and unlocks the lock and, most importantly, when they do it.
And even if you don’t have your phone on you, you can always operate the lock by using the keypad or a key.
Overall this is one fantastic smart lock for the money—outstanding value.
Yale Assure Lever
If you are still reading, you have probably discovered one interesting detail about all these smart locks so far—they either attach on or flat-out replace the deadbolt on the door. But not all doors have a deadbolt, right?
This is where Yale steps in to offer an excellent smart lock that works with Siri but does not need a deadbolt. What it does is replace your existing door lever or knob.
It is fully compatible with Siri. All you have to do is ask Siri, and it will lock or unlock your door.
There is an option to have the lock automatically unlock when you get near your home and also lock after you.
You can manage and give access to different people or restrict their access to specific time windows. By using the August app, you can even monitor the activity of other people. There are detailed logs of who enters or leaves your home and when.
