What are digital door locks?

Digital door locks are electronic, or battery-operated locks, that do not require the use of physical keys for access. They are fitted with automated features, providing a more creative  and seamless security solution. Like any other door lock, digital locks use a latch or a bolt that can run across the door and the doorframe to prevent access – what differs is how these are controlled.

There are various options available for a variety of budgets. It depends on how modern and sophisticated you would like your lock to be. At Nearby Locksmiths, we can provide you with guidance on which option will best suit your needs.

What are the benefits of digital door locks?

Keyless Entry

Share access and manage users

If you need multiple people to access your home, a smart lock will have the option to share an access passcode and monitor its use through the mobile app. This type of cloud-based locking approach is extremely popular for residential properties.

Digital locks give you an extra level of security, and often allow you to monitor who is accessing your home. What’s more, is that most burglars know how to break a traditional lock; digital locks make your property more difficult to get into.
