1. Go with a hybrid –
If you have family members who aren’t on board with “smart lock” technologies, or high tech locks, you can choose a multi-use device for your home. The locks combine the power of the pin, touch, or fob pad system, with the leverage of the added deadbolt system allowing you to lock and unlock doors in the traditional manner. It looks like a traditional deadbolt system, but affords you the option of using the key or the pin pad system to lock and unlock your doors. Key fob systems are also available, as are other “smart” technology options, such as using a smartphone or device to arm and disarm the locks.

RFID technology has been put to use in commercial settings for years, and with just cause. But, why not choose this ultra secure, easy to use technology for your home locks as well?

We use it everyday, and now lock manufacturers are incorporating the use of Bluetooth locks for home and commercial use as well. Using your smartphone, and an app as the user interface, it doesn’t get much easier than using these locks for your home’s security system. The high tech encryption system, alongside the Bluetooth interface, gives you an added layer of security when installing this new lock system for your home.

With the touch of a button, you can arm and disarm the locks, so you don’t have to go fumbling for your keys every time you have your hands full when getting home from work. By simply touching the door lock, heat technology reads your fingerprint, giving select users access to the door system. And added bonus is that you can set several users, and store their fingerprints, allowing more than one person to have access to the home. And, like other high technology locking systems used today, you can set expiration dates, or use backup codes, in the event the fingerprint scanner is having problems after it is installed. For those in search of technology, convenience, and simplicity all rolled into one, this is a great option to consider when choosing new door locks to install in your home.

The feature we most love on our smartphones and tablets can also be used to lock and unlock our home’s doors.

So, if a burglar or anyone who should not have access to your home attempts to break in, you know they won’t be able to with these smart technologies and lock systems in place at your home.
