Keyless entry systems are, in many ways, the answer to the troubles many of us face surrounding issues with keys. The instances where our keys cause us problems are large enough that it only makes sense to consider keyless entry system options. Your old fashioned dead lock always does its best to secure your home, however if you lose or misplace your keys, or need to get into your home in a hurry, often your keys or lack of that will slow you down.
Here at Keyless Entry Systems, our team of biometric door lock experts explain that there are many different keyless options available. It’s important to consider your individual needs and the various options when deciding on the type of keyless entry system that is right for your family and your home.
Most electronic door lock systems come with one or more means of entry, which includes RFID, keypad, biometric (fingerprint), or Bluetooth.
Here our smart door lock experts explain these four types of keyless entry locks:
Keypad electronic locks – These keypads use a pin number for entry. Although keypads are still popular, newer models use touchscreen panels instead of buttons and include further security features to ensure codes are never broken.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) – These locks use a key fob or card for entry. With RFID technology, you may still be able to leave your key fob in your bag or pocket upon entry.
Bluetooth-enabled locks – Bluetooth-enabled locks operate by sensing your smartphone’s Bluetooth ID and opening when you approach. Most Bluetooth and RFID locks also use a secondary means of electronic entry, in case your battery dies or you lose your key fob.
Biometric entry – Biometric entry uses fingerprint identification to open the lock. Simply program your fingerprint, or those you want to have access to your home, and your home will unlock for you.
