Gift your dad a smart lock this Father's Day

With Father's Day right around the corner, chances are you’re looking for Father’s Day gift ideas that will impress your dad and show him how much you love him.

Level has you covered. Whether your dad is handy, or into the latest tech, a Level smart lock is the perfect Father’s Day gift idea for 2023.

If your Dad is into DIY

Handyman dads love a DIY project that involves taking things apart and putting them back together better than they were before. Installing a Level lock is simple and requires only a screwdriver. If you think Dad will want to keep his existing hardware, Level Bolt is the perfect choice — it replaces the inner workings of your current deadbolt with smart Level Bolt technology, giving you all the benefits of a smart lock with no visible changes to the door’s exterior.

If your Dad’s a gadget guy

If your dad is always showing you the latest app, is always buying the newest iPhone, and loves the idea of a smart home, then Level Lock+ will be just his speed. Level Lock+ uses NFC technology to communicate with Dad's iPhone or Apple Watch and let him have access to his home with Apple Home Keys. And in the Level app, he can adjust lock settings - like how long the lock should wait before automatically locking again, or who has access to the home. It’s perfect for a tech-savvy dad.

If your Dad is into quality control

If your dad often says things like, “They don’t make ‘em like they used to,” then all Level products are sure to get his stamp of approval. Level's built-in smart tech is encased in a strong, yet durable mechanism that meets the highest locksmith security and reliability standards, with a triple-A rating from the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA). The 440C stainless steel deadbolt houses the lock’s battery, making it sturdy and functional with an easy to change the battery.

If you have a forgetful father

Dads have a lot on their minds, so it’s no surprise that remembering house keys can be challenging. With Level lock, forgotten keys are no longer a worry. If he’s in range of the lock with his phone, he can unlock it with Auto-Unlock in the Level app, which is great for dads with their hands full or for dads who like to go for a workout and leave their keys behind. But don’t worry — if Dad forgets his phone, each Level lock also has plenty of backup entry alternatives, like traditional keys, a keypad, or key fobs & cards.

If you want to suit his style

Unlike other smart locks that require you to mount bulky hardware on the front of your door, Level Lock hides all its technology inside your door, making it the smallest, sleekest smart lock on the market. Would-be intruders have no clue that it’s smart, and it comes in multiple finishes to match your home’s decor. If Dad wants to add a keypad, he can discreetly mount it anywhere within 30 feet of his Level lock so it’s hidden from view, keeping his entryway as stylish and sophisticated as he is.
