Entry Door Locks Security
Everybody knows there is a wide variety of locks, actually, there are a few hundred options (or more) when it comes to entry door locks.
Locks were born out of the necessity of people to protect their possessions so they might be a number of reasons you might want to change the locks on your entry doors. Perhaps you have moved into a new house or apartment and want to take some precaution or simply update your entry with a stylish and innovative hardware.
Whatever the reason may be, there are so many options available today, from actual keyless entry and remote-controlled locks to traditional wood locks. Luckily they are all available in many different finishes and styles to fit the best your personal preference, and especially, your budget.
First things first, you need to take some measurements. Try measuring the space where the knob will be on the new door and also measure the thickness of it. If the new lockset will fit into existing holes, you are going to have to measure the diameter of its hole, the deadbolt diameter and let’s not forget the width and height of all the faceplates.
Having all these measurements on hand will definitely save you multiple times going to the store. Also, take note of all the finishes on your door knocker so you can coordinate colors and accessories with your new lockset.
Now, let’s take a glimpse at what´s on the market.
Having remote-control locks ensures your safety and gives you the greatest peace of mind knowing that other control won’t be used to enter your home. Let them try! But, how do remote-control locks work? Actually, they work in a very similar way to a remote lock on your car, the changes automatically after each entry.
Depending on the brand, remote-control locks can be found with additional features included. Some models allow you to open the door with the touch of your finger or even using your SmartPhone. You may be thinking about having a quick trip to your nearest home improvement store, don’t you?

If this is your favorite one, make sure to choose a lock that resists picking and for added security, try buying a lockset that has both the keyed entry mentioned above and also, a deadbolt. These locks can be found at any home improvement store.
