The holidays are one of the busiest times of the year, and if you plan on leaving home to meet with friends and family, consider beefing up your security, particularly on your front door. Bosma is offering a deal you might be thankful for: — no coupon necessary.
During our Thankful Deals promotion, we’re marking down some of our best-selling products ahead of Black Friday. This event features low-priced, heavily discounted, highly reviewed and rarely on-sale items, but you only have until November 23 at 11:59 PM Pacific to purchase them at a discount.
The Bosma Aegis makes adding extra security to your smart home easy. According to Bosma, you can install the Aegis to your front door within 10 minutes using just a screwdriver. It’s compatible with most U.S. single-cylinder deadbolts, so you likely won’t need to switch out your existing hardware.
Once installed, you can connect the Aegis to the Bosma mobile app (rated four stars on Google Play) to activate its smart home features. The Aegis can auto-lock and unlock as you leave and return home. This is especially useful if you frequently forget to close the deadbolt or when approaching the door while carrying groceries. Alternatively, you can give the Aegis voice commands using or . Bosma will even alert you if you leave the door ajar.

The Aegis is protected with AES-128 encryption to prevent unauthorized users from opening the lock, and in the event of a break-in, the app will trigger a siren and send you an alert.
