How Keypads and “Smart” Door Locks Can Make Your Life Easier
It’s easy to take for granted certain things in life that make our days easier. Phones come to mind, of course, but have you ever thought what you’d do without indoor plumbing? Or air conditioning? Or even your microwave? Life would be a lot tougher.
Believe it or not, keypads and “smart” door locks are in the same category. Once you discover how much easier they make your life, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. From ease of entry to quick reprogramming, there are several benefits to having residential or commercial keypads and “smart” locks installed in your building. Here are four of them:
Benefit #1: Security
Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night wondering if the back door to your house or business is unlocked? Have you ever gotten a package stolen? Can you see who is at your door? Traditional locks, well, leave the door open for these types of situations. With a keypad or “smart” door lock, you’ll have a unique access code that only you know. Furthermore, you can program alarms to sound if someone is messing with the keypad or lock. Plus (if you have one with a camera), you can even see who is in front of the door. These locks can also act as a second layer of security if you combine them with other locks.
Benefit # 2: Convenience
We’ve all lost our keys at some point in time. In fact, Americans spend 2.5 days per year looking for lost items like keys each year. With a keypad or smart door lock, all you have to know is the code, so you don’t even need to have a physical set of keys with you. Lock and unlock the door remotely and stop worrying about always having your keys on hand.
Benefit #3: Intelligence
Did you know that some smart door lock systems can actually detect whether you’re inside or outside of your home? This is where the “smart” part of smart door locks and keypads comes into play. Other smart features include smart doorbells with extra security, motion detection, facial recognition, text alerts, email notifications and more. Best of all, they integrate easily with smartphones.
Benefit #4: Connectivity
Keypads or smart door locks don’t just form a single connection with your smartphone — they can connect to your entire security system. That means if you have any security cameras, security alarms or other smart locks, you can integrate them with your smart door lock or keypad to have a single security entry point for your phone.
Benefit #5: Customization
There isn’t a “one size fits all” keypad or smart door lock, either. You can choose one based on your specific security needs, desired features, budget, look and lifestyle. Whether you live (or work) alone, or have frequent visitors coming and going, there’s a keypad or smart lock that can fit your needs.
