Does my old cylinder already work with a smart lock?
If your lock is of European, Swiss, or Nordic type, it is available to install tedee with an adapter. However, there are some conditions for your door and cylinder. You can find more information in our blog post. If your lock is European and you're not sure whether to use an adapter or replace a cylinder, you can find the comparison of both setups here.
Should I use a new cylinder or an adapter?
