What keyless locks would you recommend?


Digital keyless locks that come with both fingerprint access and a keypad option provide the best of both worlds. They can be quick and easy for family members to use. And if a member of your family ever forgets the code, they can still access the door. Giving access to friends, guests, or tradies via a code is also super simple.


I recommend the Lockly Satin Nickel Latch Secure Plus Smart Lock With 3D Fingerprint scan as it is a simple D.I.Y. installation. It features a hack-proof digital keypad, allows you to send access codes with time-specific expiration, and you can remotely lock and unlock your door from anywhere with the mobile app.


If you'd like the addition of seeing who's at your front door, the Lockly Vision Matte Black Deadbolt With Video Doorbell Smart Lock live streams high-resolution video straight to your smartphone. - MitchellMc

These look nifty - I like the idea of the push/pull handle, especially being able to open the door when your hands are full. Our neighbour recently installed a different Samsung model and is happy with it. - MartyH

The Whitco handles I currently have installed have a key override - you can slide the face plate off the handle and there is a standard lock hiding there. The Assure Lock which I'm thinking of getting forgoes the need for a backup keyed lock by having a terminal below the lock with a 9V contact point so if you ever get truly locked out you just keep a 9V battery in your car and you can power up the lock again. - maknilsin

I prefer the handle too. This works in tandem with whatever handle you like. It’s just a smart deadbolt - keypad, control from smartphone, etc. Def want to have a key override.


I decided to go for the Igloohome S2 based on some great reviews and a beautiful, sleek aesthetic. I'll be pairing it with new black hardware on my double entry, timber frame doors. - ProjectPete

I have one on my front door, 3 years now, it works very well. Mine is hooked up to the internet so i can let some one in if I'm not home. I change the batteries every Christmas. I will get another for my security cabinet. - Dennis

I am looking at the Danalock V3 Euro as it will fit the screen doors. The system is not cheap at over $1200 for four locks. - Brad

Just curious …  Is there any smart locks for screen security doors?  They all appear to be for the timber door which is great, but you still need a key for the security door. 

Thank you.

Hi @Caron,


The availability of smart locks for security screen doors is more limited, but we have the Yale Silver Unity Security Screen Door Lock, or we can order the Yale Silver Unity Security Screen Door Lock with Keypad


Please let me know if you have any questions.

Finding one you can actually lock from the inside is a feature I would look for, unfortunately the one that came with our house has no way to lock from the inside so kids can just open the door. It either means we now have to install another smart deadbolt or swap to one that does.

Hi @MrSober 


The good news is that the Yale Silver Unity Security Screen Door Lock can be manually locked from the inside with a press of a button on the unit itself. You also have the option of controlling the lock through your phone.

Hi everyone,

I'm interested in installing a keyless lock on my front door, and I've been doing some research to find the right one. I'm wondering if anyone can advise me on the legalities of this and if there are any specific features I should look for in a digital lock to ensure that my home insurance will cover any break-ins.

Hi @Neo19


That's a question best posed to your insurance provider. If they have any special requirements, then I trust we'll be able to help you select a product that meets their set standards. If anything, insurance providers typically consider smart locks more secure than traditional keyed locks due to their enhanced features, such as automatic locking and remote monitoring. However, it's important to choose a high-quality smart lock from a reputable manufacturer that meets the insurance provider's standards. Here's an article from Lemaar, one of our smart lock suppliers, on Smart door locks and insurance: What you need to know


Once you've spoken to your insurance provider, let us know their requirements and we can recommend some products for you.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
