I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel it's a huge hassle to get in and out of the house - with all the keys that I have to keep track of, my hands are usually full of something or other, and I can seriously tell you that it's probably the worst part of leaving. It stresses me out! One time I had my hands full of groceries and the key wouldn't turn in the deadbolt lock and so I had to set everything I had down on my step and I probably worked on trying to open my lock for about 5 minutes straight, and I may or may not have ended up crying about it. The story ends happy though, I got inside. Believe it or not, this post is not about me and my sad story, I have a point to all this. There is a solution to all this if you have ever felt similar to what I feel and felt on that sad day. We don't have to feel like this when we are trying to open our locks and in a hurry anymore...
I am talking about Keyless Locks! These have always been awesome in my eyes. Keyless deadbolts, keyless levers and knobs, and keyless handlesets! This is what, in my opinion, everyone needs. They are easy to use, easy to install and seriously so handy to have. You don't have to worry about keys any longer! And maybe if your like me it would be even better if you didn't have to remember to lock the door, from the inside or outside. Well guess what?... There are keyless locks with this option, and automatic locking option. Which means that after you have entered your keypad code, the deadbolt will lock after so many seconds for you! You don't have to remember to lock the door after you shut it. Let me give you a list of which ones have this automatic locking action.
- The Kwikset 909 Smartcode Electronic Deadbolt
- The Kwikset 909 Contemporary Electronic Deadbolt
- The Lockey E-Digital electronic Deadbolt Lock
- The Lockstate LS-DBS Keypad Deadbolt
- The Lockstate LS-DB500 Electronic Keypad Deadbolt
This last one is a little bit different than the rest because it has a remote. Yeah, I'm not kidding. This deadbolt looks exactly like the LS-DB500, but it includes a hand held remote that looks like the remotes with the little buttons that go to your car to unlock and lock the doors or pop the trunk or whatever other buttons they have now. This remote wont have a trunk popping option, but it does have lock and unlock buttons that can open your lock from up to 30 feet away. Sweet right?
Keyless locks really do make life so much more simple.
