Review Of Keyless Residential Entry Locks

The following is a list of features that are available for Keyless Residential Entry Locks:

  • Voice activated
  • Remote controlled
  • All in one, key, keypad and remote.

I was looking into buying new locks for my house when I stumbled upon the idea of using keyless electronic door locks. At first I felt that I might not be able to remember the code and may feel more secure fumbling for the key. Then I started thinking that it may be easier to remember the code, especially if its something only you know and can easily remember.

The gig is that you can give different people different entry codes. Say, you have a friend that comes over to check on your cat while you’re out of town, or a utility person checking on some utilities and has to get in to the house or a whole slew of other reasons someone may need to get in to the house on a one-time basis. Then all you have to do is disengage their code and now you don’t have to worry about so many keys running around town or trying to remember who has the extra one(s)?

There are also locks that offer codes for only specific dates and time periods. Something similar to what a Realtor would use. You can even generate a new code remotely from anywhere in the world! Well, so far I don’t have use for this type of feature, but you never know down the road.

Maybe the best yet, is the wireless remote controlled deadbolt. No thinking required. You can even unlock this from a remote software program. Wow! Are you kidding me. No more kids locked out of the house after school accidentally.

Places to find keyless locks:

  • Amazon
  • Lowes
  • Home Depot

Here are two of the most popular I found:

Schlage BE365VCAM716

This is a beautiful lock. The one I saw was called, Aged Bronze. The cost is just over $100.00. Can use a key or a code. 90% of the reviewers absolutely loved this lock. Even above and beyond higher priced similar models. Manual extension and retraction of the deadbolt seemed to be a key value feature due to the fact a lot of batteries go bad and then you’re not able to access. With this lock, the key pad serves to activate the lever.

Kwikset 90915SMTCP SmartCode Single Cylinder Deadbolt Featuring SmartKey

This lock is considered, “bump-proof”. Bumping is way to open the lock without the actual key. This is the trick locksmith’s use to get you in to your locked out house and then charge you $75-$100.00. But, hey, someone’s got to know how to do it, even thieves! Which is why, some people are set on get a “bump” proof lock like this one. You decide.

Conclusion: There are a lot of makes and models of these types of locks. The Schlage and Kwikset brands are both leaders in the industry and come highly recommended across the board. Even though there are a lot of these sold on line. I would recommend physically going to a local hardware store and speaking with a knowledgeable salesperson to find one that works best for your specific needs.
