Choosing A Gorgeous Entryway Door

2 Reasons To Consider A High-Tech Lock For Your Home

by Josep Hernandez

Installing a high-tech locking system on your home is a great idea, mostly because it can provide quite a few different benefits. You should consider a high-tech lock for your home if you want something that is highly secure and versatile.


One of the biggest selling points to many high-tech locks is that many options do not have any exposed locking mechanisms for a potential thief or intruder to access. This makes it virtually impossible for someone to actually pick the lock. In some cases, the lock will be made more secure by requiring multiple steps to open.

For example, you may need to utilize a key fob or proximity to your cell phone to unlock a panel on the lock. Once that panel is unlocked, you can then slide the panel aside and use a regular key to unlock the door. This is useful because it means that someone would need to get his or her hands on not just your keys, but whichever device is necessary to access the lock in the first place. 


Another reason to consider a high-tech lock is because they can be very versatile when it comes to locking or unlocking them. Some high-tech locks will actually allow you to access them via the Internet.

This option is ideal if you want to let someone into your home remotely as you can simply log in to the system and unlock the door while you are out of the house. This is also helpful if you get to work and cannot remember if you locked the door on your way out. In that situation, you can check the status of the locks on the secure website or through a phone app and lock them if necessary.

These locks will often also give you the option to provide guests with passes on their phone that will unlock the doors to your home when they get within range of the lock. When assigning these passes, you will have several limits that you can place. For example, you can have a limit on the pass that will only allow it to work during certain hours of the day, or only for a certain time frame before it expires completely.
