Keyed Vs. Keyless Exterior Door Knobs
When choosing exterior door hardware, you may find yourself wondering if keyless door locks or keyed entry door knobs are right for you. Both are safe, secure options, and both come in many colors and styles to match the look of your home. There are several factors you may want to consider when deciding which is right for you and your home.
When selecting exterior door hardware, security is probably the most important factor to consider. Whether you’re leaning towards keyed or keyless door knobs, it’s important to keep in mind that the higher quality lock you select, the more secure your home will be.
Keyed locks have been around for centuries, and have stood the test of time as a security measure. Because they require a physical key, only those with a copy of the key can gain access to your home. Lost keys and easy-to-find spare keys can pose a security risk. Likewise, lower-quality locks may be picked more easily, thus decreasing their security.
Keyless door knobs may give extra security and tighter control over who has access to your home and when. Door codes can be reprogrammed, and some keyless door knobs can be unlocked with a fingerprint or phone. However, keyless door knobs are essentially small computers and are not impervious to hacking. And again, the lock is only as good as the materials it’s made of - meaning that a lower quality lock can more easily be damaged or broken.
Many homeowners with keyless door knobs love the convenience of not having to carry keys when they come and go. Using a keypad is often easier than fumbling with keys when you have your hands full, and many keypads also light up in the dark to make entering your home at night easier. Keyless locks also prevent you from locking yourself out.
Keyed entry door knobs are generally more reliable than keyless entry door knobs, as long as you have your keys with you. Keyless locks have the potential to get stuck if they lose power or run out of battery. Some keyless door knobs connect with your phone to unlock and could cause trouble if they’re unable to connect through Bluetooth. As small computers, keyless locks could also malfunction in extreme weather conditions.
Since they’ve been around for a very long time, keyed entry door knobs can be found in just about any color and style you could want. However, with the rising popularity of keyless entry door knobs, these can also be found in an increasing number of styles and colors.
Keyed door knobs will almost always save you money compared to keyless door knobs. They’re simple to install yourself, and if for any reason you need to change door knobs again or your lock malfunctions, changing out a keyed door knob will save you money again.
Lock And Key Door Knobs Vs. Privacy Door Knobs
Keyed entry door knobs with lock and key mechanisms are typically used as exterior door knobs. However, they can be used on interior doors as well, if extra security is needed. More often, interior doors that require locking (such as bedroom and bathroom doors) will utilize privacy door knobs. These differ from keyed door knobs because they are not unlocked with a key. They are only locked and unlocked from one side, and some may have a pinhole on the opposite side for unlocking if needed.
You may find that utilizing a keyed entry door knob on an interior door is more practical than using a privacy door knob in certain scenarios. For example, locking a door with a key may make sense if you have a home office that requires more security, or if you use a section of your home as a separate, adjoining apartment.
