Benefits of Keypad Locks for Your Custom Home
In today’s world, we have to be more aware of certain dangers. Theft and burglary can be a huge problem, especially for homeowners. With this in mind, it is important to structure your home with the right safety precautions. Why? Well, during the day, your home could easily be a target of theft. To ensure that your home isn’t a victim of theft, installing a keypad lock system is beneficial to ensure added security.
In this blog, we will be discussing the benefits of using keypad locking systems for your home. We will go over the security benefits, as well as the convenience benefits as well.
Why Alternative Locking Systems?
Though the old way of doing things can be nostalgic, it isn’t always the best way to do something. This can be said for lock-and-key security, as the method is outdated and not always the best way to secure your household. For instance, keys are small and easily misplaced. Now, of course, you could argue that putting your house key on a key ring would reduce the likelihood of losing the individual key — but losing your key ring is a possibility as well. Keys are easy to misplace and can eventually break or be misplaced over time. Worse, keys require physical use. This means that if someone needs to enter your house, they will need your key in order to get inside. This also means that you will have to copy and give out your key.
Alternative locking systems provide an easy and convenient way to lock your house. Best of all, this type of electronic system allows you (and only you) to know the code to enter your home. With complete control over who enters and exits your home, you can have peace of mind about your security.
Keyless Entry and Exit
Have you ever gone grocery shopping and returned home with an armful of items? If you have, you probably recall that you needed to put down your food in order to reach for your key to let yourself in. And, by putting your grocery bags down, you may have risked your bag falling over and spilling its contents in front of your house. To reduce the struggles of entering and exiting your home, keyless locking systems are beneficial.
Aside from the ease of entering and exiting your home, keyless locks don’t require any tangible item — which is the whole point of “keyless.” If you have ever lost your keys, you probably felt a chill of panic run down your spine. On a single key ring, most Americans have their house keys, car keys, locker keys, office keys, and so on. As you can imagine, the loss of a key ring can be devastating for homeowners. With keyless locks, you have one less thing to worry about.
Time-Determined Locking Systems
It is important to remember that the benefits of keypad locks don’t stop just at “keyless.” In fact, there are plenty of other benefits as well. For example, time-determined or locking controls are important for homeowners, as well as business owners. No matter if you decide to use keypad locks in your professional or home life, they can be useful when it comes to timing when your doors should be locked. For instance, you can easily go to sleep and forget to lock your front door. That means for an extended period of time, your door is wide open! With time-determined locking systems, you can program your lock to automatically secure your doors at a certain time. So, if “lights out” is at 8 p.m., your doors will automatically lock.
Who doesn’t like a bit more security when it comes to your home? Inside your residence, your house has everything you love; your family and your most precious belongings. With that being said, it is important to protect your home at all costs. Keypad doors allow for increased security precautions in order to keep your home secured. How? Well, because traditional locks are privy to lock picking or lock bumping, they can be broken and your home can be vulnerable to theft. With keypad locks, the only way anyone can enter your home is by knowing the numeric code on your keypad. This ensures that no one but you can enter or lock your home.
Keyless locks are easier to maintain and remain secure because they do not require a tangible key. Because keys are small and easily misplaced, this can increase the likelihood that the key of your home can fall into the wrong hands. For instance, if you offer a copy of your house key to a friend, a babysitter, or your children, there is always the likelihood that any of the copies could become lost. Most importantly, someone you don’t know could access your home without your knowledge.
Keys can wear out over time. If the metal of the key gets too warped, it cannot fit in your lock or may become stuck. If this happens, you might be in a predicament and locked out of your own home. Keyless locks are electronic, so there is no risk of warping or physical breakage. Because of its digital capabilities, maintenance requirements are significantly reduced.
