Do Not Trust Your Electronic Lock
Did you know?
A lifetime of batteries operating inside an electronic keypad lock is approximately 3 years. In some cases, the batteries will die just a short period of time after 2 years. This depends on the weather conditions and how often is the lock has been used. Please make sure you replace your batteries every two years.
Furthermore, low power batteries can cause problems or even damaging your electronic lock. Those are the main reasons why you shouldn’t trust your electronic lock.
Another reason why you need to be a little bit cautious with electronic locks is a little pressure on the latch or the bolt, a pressure caused by time because the door is not aligned with the frame. You should never trust your lock and it always better if you keep a back-up, in case your lock fails on you. You never expect to have a faulty lock, especially after paying the best money for him.
Most of the good electronic keypad locks cost over $120, yet, do not trust your electronic lock. Any lock can go bad in one day or another, this is a good reason why you should keep a spare key with a trusty person. This person can be a relative, a friend, or a neighbor.
The Benefits You Have Purchasing an Electronic Lock
There are several benefits you have by installing an electronic lock on your main door. This is the door you mostly use on a daily basis. It does not have to be the front door to your home, it can also be the side door or the back door.
1) You don’t need to take the key to your home everywhere with you – When you use an electronic keypad lock, you just need to type chosen 4 digits pin code. This makes the entry to your home very convenient.
2) You avoid the chance to lose your keys – When you take your keys everywhere you go, you have a chance to lose your keys on the way. Leaving your keys in the house or with a trusty person makes sure you would never lose your key.
3) Having up to 25 different users with different pin codes – With an electronic keypad lock, you can give permission to different people to gain access to your home. For instance; when a good friend from far comes to visit you, you can give him access to your home providing him his favorite pin code. When the friend leaves, you can only erase this pin code. Think about it; instead of giving your friend a key to your home, you give him a pin code. This will help to keep your keys in a secure place at all times.
4) Easy access to your home when coming back from shopping – Why search for a key in your pocket or your purse with hands full of groceries while you can type in your code to unlock the door?
