We hear a lot about home break-ins, many happening in the middle of the night while you are sleeping. Police said the most common point of entry is your own front door.

Now a Tennessee company, is perfecting the "smart lock."

Alexander Bertelli is the CEO of Haven. He served in the army for about 10-years.

"I was a helicopter pilot," he said. 

Bertelli came away with some ideas about security.

"We found that a lot of the guys we were going after would barricade their doors  shut. It was really hard for us to get in," he explained. 

Which gave him an idea for a product and a company. 

Haven now makes heavy-duty smart locks. They're made of aluminum, steel and nylon 66.  

He said their heavy-duty door locks are 10-times stronger than a traditional deadbolt.

Haven's locks are very inconspicuous. They sit underneath the door and even though it's just a couple inches of metal, they are enabled with Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities. They can even alert your security company if someone is breaking in.  

Like anything connected to the internet, hacking is a potential risk. But Haven insists their locks are heavily encrypted.
