Electronic locks have gained popularity in recent years. An electronic lock operates by means of electric current generated by batteries. Electronic keypad door locks feature ten buttons that you can use to create custom entry codes and codes can be easily added or deleted right at the keypad. Some electronic locks relock after five seconds, ensuring your home is safe and secure at all times.
Because they’re keyless, keypad locks offer super convenience for busy people. A keyless lock means no worries about kids losing keys, no need to carry a key when you leave the house, and no need to hide a key outside (bad idea anyway!). You can assign each family member his or her own special code to unlock the door. You can add and delete codes as often as you want or need to in seconds! Schlage keypad locks come pre-programmed with 2 user codes and feature a 19-user code capacity with 10,000 user code combinations to choose from. They also have a battery life of over three years.
When looking for an electronic keypad deadbolt lock, be sure to look for Grade-2 or higher and one with wear-resistant keypad buttons, so potential burglars can’t guess a code based on wear and tear. Consumers rank Schlage locks highest in areas of importance such as durability and security. In fact, Consumers Digest rated Schlage keypad deadbolts as a “Best Buy.”
