I'm wanting to put a smart lock on my front door, but I have a problem. I have side lights on each side of the door. For those who don't know, those are the decorative windows on each side of the door. The problem is, the existing deadbolt doesn't quite push out all the way when locked, because the hole is drilled all the way to the edge of the side light. So, if I try to drill the hole deeper, it would drill out a space on the side light wood. So I'd end up with a hole to the outside.
That means that if I put in a smart lock, it won't be able to push the bolt all the way out. Would that be an issue or do they normally have some way to adjust for that?
