For most of us, security is a top priority when choosing door lock hardware for our homes, followed by cost, style and finished products. Choosing the best door locks for your doors depends on whether a door is interior or exterior, because each kind of door requires completely different locking mechanisms. For example, it would not make sense to install a deadbolt on a bathroom door or a bathroom locks on the front door of your home. But before we get into all that, let’s learn more about door locks in general and which ones are the most durable and the highest security.
Schlage in my opinion is the best house lock on the market today. It will also key up to Baldwin and some other name brands. Baldwin is a very nice lock set but the prices can vary. Kwikset is a more affordable brand of lock for someone that wants to save money. The smart key system for kwikset is total junk and will fall apart in less than a year. I have never had any luck with the smart lock from Kwikset. The pin tumbler deadbolts and door knobs from Kwikset are a pretty good lock and you can have them re-keyed in our shop or we can come to your house and key them up for you. New electronic lock devices constantly overtake their analog counterparts, and now that includes the locks on our homes. Smart locks with Bluetooth deadbolts and fingerprint biometric locks are already in the stores. Imagine unlocking your home for a family member when they have lost their keys or simply locked out so Additionally, there are companies that have created a smart lock with a built in camera that takes a picture of anyone touching the lock and sends a realtime picture alert to your mobile phone, providing you with visual confirmation of who is accessing your home at that moment. I just love this new technology we have today.
