This paper proposes a way to control a smart lock using a home situation. A user can lock/unlock a smart lock using an application. And the application can unlock the smart lock with the GPS information. However, the smart locks have some problems. The operating the application is troublesome. And the GPS range is too wide to control the smart locks. In this study, we propose a way to control the smart locks using Bluetooth and the home situation. Our proposed system observes the home situation and controls the smart locks automatically using the Bluetooth and the home situation.
