After a family member loses their house key and you're off to get another one made, the thought of a keyless entry system may cross your mind. You've used them in the past and found them to be easy and convenient. Would a keyless lock be worthwhile for your home? If you're ready to get rid of your traditional entry door lock, a keyless system can provide an array of great benefits for the family household. Here are a few reasons why you should make the switch.

  1. No Lost Keys

This is a huge benefit! As you and your family come and go from home, you won't need to worry about lost keys. No more storing spare ones underneath the front door mat or frantic calls from the kids about lost keys. Everyone will memorize the passcode for the keyless lock and be able to enter the home with no key necessary.

  1. No Re-Keying

Since the lock is keyless, you won't need to worry over re-keying. This is more so beneficial for businesses that give employees keys to the office. With a keyless lock, money won't be spent on re-keying locks. Instead, a new code can be created for your office employees. Homeowners can certainly benefit from this as well.

  1. Sleek and Modern

Keyless locks are advanced, so they often feature a modern appeal that will look great on your front door. They're equipped to handle the elements with weather resistant materials and can hold their own against unwanted access. Whether you choose a keyless lock with buttons or a touchscreen number pad, you'll love how it looks.

  1. Enhanced Home Security

Many keyless locks are designed to work with an app so you can track when the front door is being opened. Some even work with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Assistant so you can really keep an eye on who is coming or going. Keyless locks usually allow you to create temporary codes for situations where a neighbor is watching your pets, or a service tech needs to do work in your home while you're away. Once you're back home, these codes can be deleted so no one has access to your home without your knowledge.
