Digital door locks

Digital door locks

With the world turning to digital technology to improve every facet of our lives, it probably comes as no surprise to hear the security measures we use in our homes are also becoming much more sophisticated. 

The humble key lock is no longer the only choice we have when it comes to protecting ourselves and our valued possessions, with digital door locks and fully automated systems now capable of providing a safer, more versatile security option.

What are digital door locks?

Digital locks are electronic or battery-operated locks that are opened using fingerprints (biometrics), radio frequency identification (RFID), near field communication (similar to Bluetooth or Wi-Fi), or a simple PIN, rather than a standard mechanical key. 

Using smart technology to control access in this way has introduced several features that can take security to another level. Some of the benefits of digital door locks include:

  • Keyless – No carrying around bulky keys or replacing lost ones. 
  • Greater security – The ability to change codes regularly and create selected user lists.
  • Easier use – Many models can be controlled by phone apps, and LED lighting on screens means no more fumbling in the dark. 
  • Battery operated – No tricky cabling required and batteries that can last for years.

Digital door lock installation

While digital door locks clearly have several advantages over traditional locks, there are a couple of things to keep in mind if you’re looking at these for your home. 

The first is compliance issues. Some digital door locks sold online and in the big hardware stores may work well enough, however there can be questions around their suitability with regards to Australian building and insurance codes. 

The second is customer support. Buying digital door locks from these sources often means technical assistance is hard to find and locating spare parts can also be a big challenge. With the lifecycle of hi-tech digital door locks naturally shorter than the old-style key locks, access to repairs and replacements is an important consideration.

In our experience, the best way to avoid these or any other issues with your digital door lock is to consult with professional locksmiths who can set you up with the right lock for your premises.
