Smart Locks

Have you thought about upgrading your home security? Do you still rely on a standard deadbolt lock and key system? Although there is nothing wrong with the ‘old-fashioned’ lock-up system – and we often recommend a deadbolt for the budget conscious consumer – people are looking to invest in more advanced home security and digital locks are a popular choice.

Our tech-obsessed culture means that even our home locking system is now ‘smart’. Keyless electronic access systems are a familiar aspect of commercial and travel industries – swipe cards for hotels and access cards for offices are all too familiar these days – but what about your home?


Pros of Digital Locks


There’s no more fussing with keys that can get lost or misplaced. Access codes can give visitors easy entry without the need for key exchanges.

2. Modern

It’s a worthy investment if you’re looking to improve the resale value of your home –up-to-date technology and smart homes are a great selling point.

Cons of Digital Locks

1.More Expensive

Although they are costlier than a traditional locking system – they are still a worthy long-term investment for reasons mentioned above.

2. Smart but not Infallible

Even though your digital lock is smart it can still run into some issues that occasionally need a locksmith to come to the rescue. The good news is that our emergency and mobile locksmiths have all the right tools and equipment to solve your digital locking issue.
