1. “ELECTRONIC LOCKS ARE TOO TECHNICAL.”
When it comes to new technology, many homeowners simply leave it to the early adopters to figure it out and avoid installing something new for fear of it being too technical. Most electronic keyless lock manufacturers have worked hard to simplify the experience. With the aid of the installation guides and easy step by step video tutorials, you can install your lock in just a few minutes and the only tool you’ll need is a screwdriver.
2. “THE LOCK WILL FAIL WHEN THE POWER GOES OUT.“
Most electronic keyless locks run on battery power. That means when the lights go out, your lock will continue to function as normal. In addition, locks with keypads and touchscreens feature back-lit numbers so you’ll never be left fumbling in the dark to unlock your door.
3. “THE LOCK MUST BE WIRED.”
Because electronic keyless locks are powered by batteries, there’s no wiring involved. Simply install the lock while following the installation instructions and install the batteries and you’ll be up and running in no time. Most locks are also equipped with a low battery warning and backup entry method in the unlikely event that your batteries do fail. We recommend changing your batteries once a year when you change the batteries in your smoke detector as a best practice.
