  5 best cheap home security solutions of 2019 Every one of these will cost you less than $20.So the question is, how do you protect your house without adding another expense on top of travel, gifts, food and Black Friday ? Luckily, smart home devices are getting cheaper every year. Here are a handful, each under $20, that can help secure your house when you're visiting family or friends for the holidays.

The lock works with four AA batteries that need to be replaced three times a year. It requires the Wyze Lock Gateway, the Wi-Fi bridge, to be plugged into an outlet near the door (within 50 feet) for users to be able to remotely lock and unlock their doors through the Wyze app. The lock works with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, so if your home’s Wi-Fi or power is out, you can still have the Wyze Lock automatically lock and unlock when you’re near the door via your phone’s Bluetooth. It’s designed to work with most single cylinder deadbolts, and it should take about 15 minutes to install. The Wyze Lock is compatible with Alexa, Zigbee, and Google Assistant, and a voice unlock feature through Alexa and Google Assistant will arrive in 2020.
