With all the choices available, determining the best door lock for your residential or commercial property can be daunting. Depending on whether it is for a home or business, you need to consider a variety of factors before making your decision. This is why expert advice from a licensed locksmith is a great place to start. First Lock & Security Technologies can consult with you to formulate custom recommendations of the best door lock for your premises. Some of the factors we consider are listed below.
Functionality of Door Lock System
Functionality refers to what the best door lock will be for your premises based on how it will be used. For example, if you are selecting a door lock for the back door of your home, you may want it to be more straightforward than your front door lock. Your backyard area likely has additional security, such as a fence and flood lights. Plus, the most of the time you will appreciate easy access while you are in the backyard gardening or grilling. When looking for a lock for your front door, you’ll likely want a high grade of security with sturdy construction designed to resist burglars as well as an attractive entrance to your home.
Door Lock Technology
There have been impressive advancements in security over the last decade. For example, doors locks can now be activated, locked and unlocked etc. from your smart phone. While it is great to have all these options, you should only pick ones that you are comfortable with and make you feel the most secure. If you are not particularly tech-savvy and feel intimidated around the latest technology and gadgets, you may want to choose a less technical and more traditional locking mechanism.
Door Lock Grades & Ratings
Consumers are fortunate to be able to read reviews and ratings of the products and services they are interested in purchasing. However, the internet can be a very unreliable source of information. Utilize the knowledge, experience and expertise of a professional locksmith.
How Long Do Door Locks Last?
Always consider the durability each lock offers. If it comes down to price, the deciding variable could be how long the lock is going to last. Two locks that are the virtually equal in terms of functionality, ratings and price can be difficult to choose between. Knowing which one holds up longer can be the tie-breaker factor to take into account.
