For exterior doors, lots of times you need more than just an entrance door knob - I think it's actually recommended that you get a deadbolt to go along with your entrance knob. At least that's what we recommend. Why? A simple answer is to add more security. Deadbolts are a lot more secure than just a entrance door knob because of their bolt that goes deeply into the jamb. The deadbolt might easily be forgotten, and also it can be challenging to find a deadbolt that matches the door knob. This is probably a good time to tell you that there is a solution to this problem.
