    I just bought an apartment in South America. Unlike in the 1st world, the locks here pretty strong. For example, the bolt that goes into the door frame of the apartment I bought is 3" in height, half an inch thick. Takes 2 360 degree turns of the key of the fully put the bolt into the frame. Some of doors also have bolts that goes into the from at the floor, as well as at the top of the door. Those also take 2 360 degree turns of the key to lock.

    Are there any bluetooth/electronic attachments that can go over these manual lock mechanisms (a la August)? I'm not sure if August can be set to do 2 360 turns. If not, any bluetooth/electronic locks that have strong bolts?

    Thank you.

    I would never get an electronic lock. I am paranoid about hacking of home automation, read all about the cars getting hacked and unlocked...
