Keeping Up with Keyless Door Locks

We’re all likely familiar with keyless door locks for our vehicles, but did you know you can get the same convenience for your home? That means no more fumbling to get the right key in the lock when you’re trying to juggle, for example, bags of groceries. Other reasons to consider keyless door locks include:

  • never having to worry about being locked out
  • the ability to let people in without being there
  • lost keys are a thing of the past

At their most basic, keyless door locks are door hardware equipped with a keypad that requires you to enter a code to unlock or have a special app.

They can come with regular door handles or be fitted for simple deadbolts. Keyless door locks are more expensive than traditional door hardware that requires keys. However, with all new technology, prices should drop.

It’s Complicated—Or Is It?

If you’re hesitant to purchase a keyless door lock because you fear you’re not technologically savvy enough, rest assured that there’s a range of options out there. You can choose a keyless door lock that’s got actual buttons to push, for example. If you can dial a number on a landline phone, you can operate these. And if you’d like something a little fancier, there are keypads that are really more like touchscreens, just like your smartphone.

In addition, despite the name, many keyless door locks come with an option for keyed entry. That may be a helpful alternative for people who have trouble remembering the unlock code.

Powering Up

Perhaps you’re worried that a keyless door lock, having an electronic keypad, will be useless if the power goes out. The good news is, most—if not all—keyless door locks are operated with battery power. That, of course, creates its own issues.

If your lock uses a lot of power, your batteries may run down faster than normal, necessitating your having extra batteries on hand. That’s not too much of an obstacle, though. If it is for you because you’re concerned about the costs, you can buy batteries in bulk from a dollar store. The greater issue for some people with battery changes is that some keyless door locks may make those changes challenging. Some keyless door locks can have battery housing that’s tricky to remove, for example, or that require an Allen wrench to open.

Smart Locks For Smart Homes

With the rise of internet-powered home assistants, many people are opting also for devices that their home assistants can help control. These include systems that you may already be familiar with, like smart lighting and temperature control. However, some keyless door locks are also designed to fit into your home assistant’s control. If you don’t have a home assistant, you can still reap the technical benefits through manufacturer-specific apps.

There are door locks with corresponding apps, for example, that allow you to keep a record of everyone who’s entering your home. They may even include voice control or the ability to issue temporary keys for guests or other non-residents, like dog walkers. Many systems are free, but some require monthly subscription fees, so be sure to read the fine print before making your choice.

Questions And Answers

How To Fix An Old Doorbell

Fixing a doorbell, in most cases, is a relatively quick, simple and inexpensive job that you can complete on your own. If your doorbell does not ring, there could be four possible problems with it. It could be the chime, the transformer, the button, or the wiring connecting them all. You can track the culprit easily and make the fix.

You do not have to worry about working with electricity as a majority of the doorbell circuitry is usually low-voltage and will not give you any shocks in case you make contact with the wires. A transformer considerably reduces the typical 120-volts carried by many electrical circuits to just ten to sixteen volts needed to operate a doorbell.

We have a useful how-to article to walk you through the process of repairing an old door.

They are a great choice for closets because they do not take up any needed space if the closet is smaller, like a swinging door would. This makes it much easier to get around and find the things that are needed. However, pocket doors are also great for bathrooms, and sometimes, they are even used as bedroom doors. These rooms tend to be more private, and it would probably be best to install a pocket door lock so you can prevent any possible embarrassing incidents. read more

Glass Door Knobs

Remodeling your home is no easy task, but many homeowners tend to leave out small details such as doorknobs in the process.

You’ll be surprised to find our wide variety of door knobs that can meet your design needs. Glass doors are fashionable, but you can argue that they can either break easily or they won’t be made of glass at all. Actually, these were a staple in homes around a century ago because of a shortage of metal around World War 1. They were mass produced in various designs and cuts to match the style of houses. Along with the doors themselves, production of glass doorknobs was at its high point and used many traditional designs in their construction. When you begin to search the market to find yourself some antique doorknobs or contact a reliable brand that can provide you with high-quality glass door knobs that mimic the strength and design of older ones, you will find many to choose from. These may be mounted in steel or brass shanks and available at many different price points  Either way you conduct your search, you’ll be doing your remodeled home a favor by using the glass door knob. read more
