The lock comes in two styles, the traditional Barrington or the contemporary Cooper. Each style comes in three finishes: Tuscan bronze, satin nickel and polished chrome.

Interior design

The interior design of the Array by Hampton lock looks much like other smart locks we've reviewed. A  bottom thumb latch allows for manual locking while the top compartment houses a rechargeable battery.
