Embrace the Convenience of Keyless Locks
Though they may look futuristic and unfamiliar, there are many benefits to switching your home to a keyless lock system. As technology has evolved, keyless locks have become extremely reliable and secure. Nothing beats the convenience that keyless locks offer. They are great for situations where you need to give others access to your home but don’t want to give out keys – either because you are afraid they may lose your key or you are not sure how long you will be utilizing their services. They are also ideal for allowing trusted contractors into your home without you having to be there.
At Unlockit Locksmith & Security, we are committed to helping you install the best lock for your family’s security needs. Keyless locks are a great solution for families that have:
- Cleaning services
- Medical caregivers
These user-friendly locks will allow you to add and remove user codes as you choose. No more concerns about lost keys or that someone has duplicated your house key without your authorization.
And depending on the lock you choose, some have additional features, such as:
- Ability to see who has accessed the lock and when.
- Ability to set schedules only allowing some in during specified days and/or times.
- Ability to unlock the door remotely.
Keyless entry door locks work much the same way that a normal key lock works. A locking mechanism rotates inwards or outwards when operating to gain or prohibit access to the door. The difference lies in how the mechanism is triggered- without a key. There are a few different types of keyless door locks, including:
- Pin Code
- Facial recognition

Keyless door locks are very secure. They are made to be durable and in many cases are much more secure than a standard keyed locking system. And, you won’t have to worry about any forgotten keys floating around out there since you always have control over who has your digital “key.”
There are a few steps you can take to make your keyless entry even more secure:
- Change the initial code used for setup – In many cases the set-up factory code is published and widely available for view, so make sure to alter it.
Alter your code every so often – For pin code locks, sometimes after repeated use someone might be able to tell which numbers are used the most often. To avoid this just change your code periodically.
Just like any device that uses technology, keyless door locks have the capability to get hacked. However, most of the quality keyless locks that are produced today have stronger security when it comes to hacking threats and the threat is pretty low. Feel free to consult with Unlockit with hacking concerns. We can answer any of your questions when it comes to keyless door lock security.
It costs around $150-$400 to install a keyless entry lock. However, the cost can vary due to:
- The type of keyless lock you want.
- The type of technology you need.
- The features you want your keyless lock to have.
The more features you want on your keyless lock, the more expensive it will generally be. If you want a keyless lock with smart technology, wifi capabilities and a fingerprint scanner, it can cost up to $1,200. To find out more about getting a keyless entry lock installed, contact us today.
