Keyless Entry locks on home is becoming a more regular request these days. There are a whole range of options for keyless entry locks although there is one lock we sell more then any other and the reasons why are really simple.
Yes it is the DN909 Electronic keypad lock. It is not the most expensive electronic lock, in fact it is one of the cheapest electronic locks we supply. It’s features are not ground breaking and it looks rather ordinary. Although there are a couple of things about this Electronic lock that make people choose it above other types of locks on the market.
Well first there is the fitting. This lock is not hard to fit. It fits in the same holes as most other standard entrance locks. Might not sound like much of a selling point? Well having a lock with a weird set of holes drilled in a door can really cause problems when you want to replace the lock with another type. You have to fill the holes on the door or add cover plates to conceal them which is less then ideal on a front entry door. If you have a rental property then being able to remove the electronic lock and replace it with a key operated lock when you leave will also save you money. Being easy to fit has a lot of advantages.
The DN909 is a reliable lock. When you are looking at electronic locks in the shop it is almost impossible to know or realise if the lock will still be working in the years, or in some cases months to come! The reality is that many expensive electronic locks fail quite early in their life. It is not just a case of changing batteries. There are many locks that just stop working for no apparent reason. The DN909 is a reliable lock. They just keep going day after day.
Security is the one thing a lock should give above all else. You don’t want your lock to be easily compromised or forced! The DN909 has a lever handle, which on traditional locks can be a disadvantage due to the extra force that can be applied to the lever by a heavy handed person or a burglar. Well, this lock cant be forced in the same way. The outside locking handle has a clutching mechanism which makes the handle free to turn when the door is locked but wont engage the latch to open the door. It is only when the correct number has been entered that the lock handle can engage the latch and the door can open. So push on the handle all day and the lock will not open without the correct pin number. It is actually one of the best features of this lock which is not really apparent at first look.
It has a keypad! DUH! Finger print locks and card locks are great! But most people just want a simple keypad to unlock their door. It’s true! A keypad might be nothing new or exciting but it works! You can give a number to a friend, you don’t need to carry anything, it can be opened in an emergency. There are just so many advantages to a simple keypad.
So to sum it up, I am sure the reason we sell this electronic lock above all the rest is because it is simple, reliable and secure. I think the fact that this is a cheap electronic lock comes second. Not all things in life have to be expensive to be good!
