If you’re struggling to choose between Wi-Fi and ZigBee smart locks, we are willing to provide some insights. Normally, it’s right to choose either of them. Under some exceptional conditions you may choose the one that fits your requirement. If users do not want to buy additional equipment (e.g. ZigBee gateway), Wi-Fi is the right choice. Wi-Fi door locks connect to your router no need to use extra equipment. If your house is installed with a ZigBee system, no wonder opting for a ZigBee lock is a good choice.
Moreover, depends on which kind of router you’re using, for a stable Wi-Fi connection, the max. number of connected device is about 10 (though you're able to connect more than 10pcs network devices, but it's great likely that some devices may encounter traffic jam and connection becomes unstable). If you want to have a stable connection, then ZigBee is a better choice. ZigBee door lock does not directly connect to your router, so connection is stable. Finally, if you want to expand your home automation system in the future (for example adding some security sensors), ZigBee still is the best option.
