My neighbor told me that he was researching keyless door locks.
“Why?” I asked him.
“Because I’m tired of having to deal with keys everytime I come home. Half the time I drop them when I’m trying to find the lock, and I can’t see the lock to put the key in when I do have them in my hand!” he told me.
He went on to tell me that keyless door locks are inexpensive, reliable, and easy to install. “Best of all,” he said, “they allow me to take one more key off my keyring and are much easier Divine Locks to deal with than keys!”
Keyless Door Locks Are Just Like Keyless Entry on Your Car
Have you gotten used to the keyless entry on your car? It’s a blast to just punch in a few numbers and get in.
Imagine having that type of freedom on your front door! Yes, keyless door locks are available for your home, office, and any imaginable application in between.
You can get locks that are mechanical, electronic (this means there is a small motor operated by batteries that opens the lock for you) or biometric (this uses your actual fingerprint to open the lock).
You can even get a combination of fingerprint and number pad for your entry lock.
Is It Tough to Install a New Keyless Lock?
Actually, reviews have indicated that installation is fairly simple, so if you have basic mechanical skills, you can install your new lock. A few simple tools are required, with many reviewers stating that they installed their new locks in less than an hour.
The vast majority of keyless door lock manufacturers state that there are no wires to install, and that a basic entry door that is 1 3/8 to 1 ¾ inches thick can handle a lockset like these.
