Conventional door locks are quickly being replaced by cutting-edge electronic locks like the new Schlage keypad entry locks, so that homeowners, businesses, and individuals can stop worrying about carrying their keys with them everywhere they go. Electronic locks allow you to simply enter a code to enter your home or office door. Just imagine, your doors are always locked, you are never locked out, and there are no more keys to carry or lose!
What’s great about these new keypad locks is their functionality. Since these are not mechanical locks and are battery powered, you can have more than one user code, and you can quickly add, delete, or change codes right at the lock in a matter of seconds. This is such a valuable feature. Now for example if you are working during the day, but you need the repairman to come out to the house, you don’t even have to leave the office to let them in, simply create a temporary user code for them and give it to them ahead of time.
Or, maybe you’ve decided enough is enough with rekeying and changing your locks each time a tenant, employee, or vacation guest leaves. Now with keyless locks like our Touchpad locks by Schlage, and Kaba, as well as our Alarm Lock Trilogy locks, or even Westinghouse RTS-PV, all you have to do is change the code. Some of our keypad locks for instance the Kaba E-Plex 5200 Series, and Trilogy DL2800 are computer manageable and allow you to schedule times into the lock when a user code or groups of user codes are allowed access. And with our Oracode 660K and 460K rental locks, you can even setup your guest’s code for their specific arrival and departure times from your computer using the internet!

Electronic locks are steadily growing in popularity. You may be wondering what if the batteries die, then what? The good news is these keyless locks are very sophisticated and first of all require a minimal draw on the batteries. This allows the lock to work a long time, sometimes 3-5 years off the original batteries. All of our keypad locks though do have low battery indicators, some are visual, some audible. With many of the locks, like our Trilogy models, they are both.
Whether you need a keyless entry lock that illuminates at night, or you need an audit trail of past entries, the best place to start shopping is in our electronic locks department.
