If you’ve been thinking about getting a keyless entry system for your home but you’re still a bit on the fence about it, there are several advantages a keyless entry system can offer you over a standard door lock:
– Keys. You can still use a key with a keyless entry door lock, but you also usually have two additional options: 1. You can unlock the door using a keypad code, or 2. You can remotely open the door using your smartphone or tablet. You’ll never have to worry about getting locked out again if Fido pushes the door shut on you and the keys are inside, and you can unlock the door from the car if you have groceries to carry in and don’t want to fumble with the lock with your hands full.
– Safety. You may hide keys on your property to act as a backup, or you may give your neighbors and/or friends keys so they can have access to your house if you’re working late and the cat needs to be fed, or if you’re on vacation and you need someone to come in and water the plants. Thieves are good at finding hidden keys and neighbors sometimes have a habit of losing spare keys. You can do away with both problems with a keyless entry system. You can also assign special codes to people who come and go frequently so you can track who has been in your home and how long they stayed.
– Access. Gone are the days of staying home from work because you need to wait for a service person to show up. Used in conjunction with outdoor surveillance cameras or a smart doorbell that offers video and two-way communication, you can remotely let service people in, then lock up behind them when they leave.
