Sometimes a lock and key just doesn’t suffice for your home. Locks can so easily be picked by anybody who takes five minutes out of their day to learn how. That is why sometimes we feel safer with a more heavy duty lock, something that can’t be picked and can’t be easily broken. This makes your house much more secure and lets you sleep easier at night. This is where digital locks come in. Digital locks are some of the most reliable and efficient locks that you can buy to protect your home. They are high in technology that is very state of the art and one of the best innovations in modern home security. Plus, it is simple for you to use and much more simple than a key for your front door.
A digital lock is a keypad that is installed into the door. You choose your own pin for the keypad and simply enter that pin into the number pad to unlock the corresponding door. It is an easy process and very safe as long as you keep your pin number to yourself. You can also change the pin at any time if you fear someone knows it who shouldn’t. These locks also come with key card scanners. This is a simple card that you swipe and it unlocks the door. You will only have a set amount of key cards, so keep them safe and you can be sure that your house is locked up very securely. These locks can also come with a variety of features. Many are included with a burglar alarm that sets off of if someone tries to hack the keypad or enters the wrong pin too many times. The key pads are also touch screen to give your lock a sleek and slender look, so that you don’t have this ugly obtrusive lock on your door. The locks themselves are also very reliable and sturdy locks. Most of the time a digital lock will be installed with a heavy duty dead bolt lock to keep your door locked as tight as it can be until that correct pin or correct key card is swiped. Digital locks are just about as secure as you can get.
The cost of these locks varies depending on the kind of lock it is, deadbolt or otherwise, and the amount of features on the lock. You can find these locks anywhere from $340 to $1143. The cheaper locks don’t allow as many users for the key cards and don’t come with many special features. The more expensive digital locks are the ones that will come with the nifty features like the burglar alarm and intrusion prevention. Also, keep in mind the installation fees. Chances are you don’t have the equipment to properly install your lock in your home or business, so you will have to pay an installation fee anywhere from $60 to $120. But, despite the price, you will be very satisfied with such a secure lock for your home or business, and a digital lock will be one of the smartest investments you’ve ever made.
