Keyless Deadbolt Door Locks
Home Security Innovation: The Electronic Keypad Deadbolt Lock
Home security locks have evolved from being just a traditional mechanical device to the keyless deadbolt locks which are electronic keypad security systems that allow you to unlock your door with a code.
The benefit is that you have the same, and for some models even higher, security as with a normal deadlock but you don't need to carry keys.
As you can see in the image, there is a key issued to these locks, but that is for emergency. In day to day use, all you need is the code.
You can also choose to install a keyless deadbolt lock with remote which lets you unlock the door before you start to carry the grocery bags from the car.
Most keyless deadbolts are electronic, but there are also purely mechanical locks which offer a slightly lower level of security but that require no electric power to run.
The image above shows the which is a inexpensive deadbolt with a numeric codelock which is currently a bestseller. This keypad deadbolt fits 1-3/8-to-1-3/4 inch doors.

Why Carry Keys When There Are Alternatives?
If you stop to count all they door keys that you use you may find that they are surprisingly many. Most people don't have all those keys on a single keyring, but if they did it would probably be a ridiculously large collection. most of us have more keys than we realize.. keys to the front door, porch door, garage door, tool shed, office door, etc, etc.
Changing the old for the new and installing keyless code locks would make life a lot easier with less to carry and never again experience the daily frustration of reaching into one pocket just to discover that they keys, of course, are in the other pocket. Never again search for misplaced keys. All you need is a code that you have chosen. If you can remember a credit card code, then you can remember your keyless entry code.

Are Key-Less Locks Safe to Use? - Which of these door locks is more secure?
We are so used to the physical key being a integral part of a lock, that it can be hard to envision a different way to securely lock a door. The reality is that you can have a higher level of security with a code lock than with one just relying on a key. Keys can get lost, or get stolen, keys can be forged, the key sheath in the lock mechanism can get worn - suddenly almost any key unlocks the old door.
Look around and you will notice that most corporate door security is based around keyless locks, which is good proof of the level of security a coded lock provides.
