Picture this. You're running behind for work. In a rush, you lock your door from the inside, shut the door behind you and suddenly that sinking feeling takes over. You've locked your keys inside. Your only options are to hope you left a window open, kick the door in or call a locksmith and foot an expensive bill. This scenario is one every homeowner is all too familiar with.

 

That small little key can add more frustration and anxiety to your day than you realize. Here are eight common worries you can say goodbye to when you embrace a keyless lifestyle.

1. Locked out

What's the best way to gain access to your home when you've been locked out? Keyless electronic locks let you come and go easily without worrying about what you’re forgetting or what you’ve misplaced. Simply press a button on the exterior side to lock the deadbolt when you go. When you return, enter your 4-to-8-digit user code to unlock. Keyless convenience allows you to say farewell to the key and have one less thing to worry about.

2. Lost house key

How often have you sent your child off to school with their own spare key for them to return without it? Or maybe you lost yours while out and about. With keyless locks, you no longer have to worry about that. With the ability to assign a unique code to each household member, you can rest easy that your kids will not be stranded when they get off the bus.

3. Forgot to leave a key for a family member

You don’t have to create copies of keys, or wonder where those copies end up—just provide house guests with their own numeric code. With Schlage's variety of keyless locks, you can create (and delete) multiple user codes so each person has one that is unique to him or her.

4. Did you lock the door?

Welcome to peace of mind. When select Schlage locks are paired with a home automation system, you always know when the kids made it home—or that the doors are locked when you’re on vacation. When the Bluetooth®-enabled Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt is placed near an Apple TV®, you gain the ability to communicate with your lock via iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch®—anywhere, anytime*. The Schlage Connect™ Touchscreen Deadbolt also combines advanced features and compatibility when connected with Z-Wave®.

5. Keep unwelcome guests out

Both the Schlage Connect™ Touchscreen Deadbolt and Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt feature built-in alarm technology that senses potential door attacks. Set your alarm to sound depending on the level of force applied to your door. You can even set your electronic deadbolt to beep anytime someone opens the door so you always know when someone is coming or going.
 
The Schlage Touch™ is 100% keyless, meaning there is no key or cylinder of any kind and nothing for intruders to bump or pick. The numeric touchscreen is all you need.

7. Fumbling for your keys at night

Each of our keyless locks feature illuminated touchscreens or LED downlight that work in the rain and with gloves on. Whether you're juggling your groceries or you're arriving home late at night, get in the door with ease just by entering your unique user code.

8. Stumbling around for a light switch

When your electronic lock is connected to your home automation system, you can program other connected devices in your home to take action automatically when you unlock your door—cue the lights, adjust your thermostat, and more.

 

It's time to stop worrying about that pesky little key and start focusing on more important things in life. If you're already a keyless customer, be sure to increase your security even more with these effective keyless codes.

 

*For best results, lock should be within 40 feet of an Apple TV® for remote capability.
