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.
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
