1. A method, comprising:
at an electronic device having one or more processors and memory for storing instructions for execution by the one or more processors, wherein the electronic device is associated with a lock device:
obtaining a determination that one or more users are within a premises;
detecting a trigger event related to the lock device and the premises;
in response to detecting the trigger event, determining that a target state of the lock device is a locked state based on:
a current location of a user, of the one or more users, within a predefined area of the premises; and
a security profile associated with the premises;
determining a current state of the lock device; and
if the current state of the lock device and the target state of the lock device are not the same, providing instructions to the lock device based on the target state of the lock device.
