How to choose your front door lock.

Mechanical Deadbolts

Mechanical locks are the most conventional type of modern door lock. A “backset” is the distance between the door edge and the center of the lock. A conventionally sized backset is larger (2 ¾”) and typically accounts for a 5” door frame. The width of a door frame determines the amount of door material (glass, wood, metal) to be used. A narrow (1 ½”) backset permits a smaller door frame, allowing for more material and higher visibility. With a conventional backset, individual parts are not replaceable and the lock is disposable, replaceable only with other conventional locks.  On the contrary, a smaller lock backset is inconspicuous, customizable, and replaceable. 

Smart Locks

Forgot to lock your door? No problem. Controlled by either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, smart locks work at the tap of a finger. Users can operate their front door lock from their mobile phones and program unique codes that can be used for entry. These programmable user codes are superior to lending out a spare key and can be changed at any time. Moreover, smart locks can often be controlled from a smart home hub. Home integration and ease of use characterize the smart lock.

Electronic Locking System

Smart homes utilize remote monitoring and management to control countless features of their home. These features range anywhere from instantaneous control of temperature, lighting, and home security. The electronic front door locking is common in these advanced smart homes. Our electronic locking system capitalizes on evolved design and smart functionality, as the locking mechanism on our pivot front doors remains unseen at all times. While most smart home systems are supported by a battery backup, a mechanical means of operation remains available in case of power failure. The price point for electric locking is high due to its seamless operation and integrative nature. An electronic front door locking system makes a valuable addition to any smart home.
