Keyed Vs Keyless Door Hardware: Which Is Better For You?
There are pros and cons to both traditional keyed locks and smart keyless locks when it comes to security. Keyed locks are very secure, but could potentially be picked. Anyone with access to a spare key could gain entry to your home at any time, and lost keys can pose a security threat. Keyless locks, on the other hand, are not impervious to hacking since they are essentially small computers. Keyless locks do allow you tighter control of who can gain access to your home and when. Pin codes can be reprogrammed, and many locks allow you to give different codes to different users so that access can be granted only on your terms.
With either option, it’s important to keep in mind that the higher quality lock you select, the more secure it will be.
Keyed locks are a somewhat more reliable option because they are unlikely to break or malfunction. As long as you have your key, you will be able to lock and unlock your door. Keyless locks that require electricity or batteries to work run the risk of losing power, and some that use bluetooth to connect with your phone need internet access to be fully functional. Because of their electronic parts, smart locks could also malfunction in extreme weather conditions.
Both keyed and keyless locks can be fairly easy to install yourself. Keyed locks are easy to use; however, some people dislike having to carry around a ring of keys, fumbling for keys in the dark, or trying to unlock a door with a key when carrying something large or heavy. Keyless locks allow you to go out without carrying house keys, and light up keypads are easier to see in the dark and are generally easier to unlock when your arms are full. Keyless locks also protect you from locking yourself out or losing your keys.
Buyers on a budget will appreciate that traditional keyed locks are cheaper to buy and install than smart locks. In the event that a lock needs to be replaced, the keyed lock will save you money again compared to a keyless lock.
Because they’ve been around longer, keyed locks come in a wider variety of colors and styles, making it easy to match other hardware or attain a certain look. However, with the increasing popularity of keyless locks, there is an increasing number of styles on the market.
Are Door Knobs With Keypads & Smart Locks Safe? Can They Be Hacked?
Keyless and smart locks are essentially small computers that operate your door locks to keep your home secure. As such, it is possible that they can be hacked, just like any other computer you use, when hackers gain access to them through bluetooth or wi-fi. However, this is an uncommon occurrence, and can be avoided by taking care in selecting a quality lock from a reputable, trusted brand. Keep your lock’s firmware up to date to ensure that any vulnerabilities are patched as soon as possible.
Although the idea of hackers gaining access to your keyless locks can be scary, smart locks and keyless entry systems are actually very safe. In fact, many users argue that they are more secure because pins can easily be updated and entry can be closely monitored and restricted. Locks with physical keys can be picked, and lost keys or spare keys in the wrong hands can pose a security threat that can be avoided with smart locks. Of course, with either a traditional keyed lock or a smart keyless lock, the higher quality lock you select, the more secure against potential break ins they will be.
