I'm trying to find a Smart Lock product that can be locked/unlocked via my phone without Bluetooth (i.e. from further away than 20 feet). I would also like to see if anyone knows of a smart lock that doesn't require replacing the current hardware, such as a magnetic strip lock or latch. If anyone knows of a product that does either or both of these things, please help guide me to them!

Pretty sure any Smart Lock is going to require replacing the hardware on your door.
some of the systems I have seen require a montly subscription plan and there are others that can use your existing wi-fi
I don't think Best Buy carries the locks but do a google search fo
or RemoteLock is a particular brand.
I have a Schlage brand lock. It is not wireless but has a keypad that works really well. Some systems may require some sort of other home.
If you have a Home Depot, Lowes, or some other Home Store in your area that might be your best bet.
However, Best Buys Commected Home department is growing. They do have a growing selection of home control products. If you get a lock you may want to look to one that is compatable with other products.
