Keyless locks are handy and are becoming quite common. The keyless door locks allow you to program multiple codes to allow various people access to your home. You don’t have to carry keys! You don’t have to worry about your or someone else losing the key to your home and then having to hire a locksmith to unlock the door and re-key your locks! Simply reprogram if you decide you don’t want an individual to have access to your home. You will find that most of the residential keyless locks are electronic, use batteries and have a backlit keypad for easy access when it’s dark out. Then there are the mechanical keyless locks which do not require batteries. Below, you will learn about different categories like keyless deadbolts, keyless levers and knobs, keyless handlesets and mechanical locks and find what works best for your home.
Keyless Deadbolts do not require a key, but you can use one if you would like. Keyless deadbolts are generally used with a doorknob or lever below. Keyless deadbolt locks are programmable so you can create your own code to lock and unlock the door.
Keyless Levers and Knobs:
Keyless levers and knobs have a combo of the keyless pad entry and the lever/knob below. It’s a handy thing to have because it’s all in one.
Keyless Handlesets are a great way to dress up your door if you are wanting the keyless option. It’s a nice combo, just like the keyless knob and lever style, but a little more dressed up. The one shown on the left is the Emtek EMtouch keyless handleset (also available in the keyless deadbolt or leverset). These have touch screens similar to the iphone and they are black when not used. You can make your door look great as well as make it super easy to enter and exit your home.
Mechanical keyless locks are super neat, because they don’t require batteries to operate the deadbolt. These don’t require power of any kind! The mechanical design works in extreme cold and heat. Don’t ever worry about the batteries dying again!
