What Are Key-less Locks?
In very brief words, is a lock that doesn’t require a key to
activate and close the door. It uses another kind of method for opening
How Do You Select The Perfect Key-less Lock?
First things first. How much money do you have? If you have a small
budget, then you should start with one lock only. Maybe buy only the
external and not the key-less interior door locks. That way, you will
not make a hole in your wallet that you will regret afterwards. In
case you don’t have to worry about the budget, that doesn’t
mean that you can buy anything. There are some other rules that need
to be taken in account.
For example, the features of key-less locks. The main one is that
you won’t need a key for opening you door. You can use a code
or a magnetic card for opening them. In the case of codes, you have
locks with simple code combinations and other more complicated,
with several options for entering your code. At the end, it depends
on the balance that you make between security and your budget.
Another feature is that they can resist strong weather. Since they
are a very expensive piece of machinery, it’s logical to expect
that they can withstand the elements and the fury of nature.
One curious thing to take in account. Some key-less locks do have
keys! Why? It is a backup in case your forget the code. In case
you end buying one of these locks, store the key in a place that
can be easily accessed.
What about the prices? Well, they are expensive. The cheapest key-less
door locks don’t cost less than a hundred bucks and the most
expensive ones reach the five hundred mark. The average key-less
lock costs approximately, US$250, depending on the brand, the quality
and its features (for example, key-less deadbolt locks).
