Digital locks are also known as combination door locks and it allow you to enter and exit a building without the need for a key – instead, you use a PIN code. They can solve the issue of keys being lost or stolen and replacing the keys which could be inefficient and expensive.
So here are the advantages and disadvantages of using a digital door lock:
Pick-proof. Because there is no place for a key with these locks, they prevent break-ins because burglars are unable to pick or ‘bump’ the lock. Criminals’ methods of breaking and entering are improving and the majority of criminals can pick an ordinary key lock.
No need for keys. You won’t have to carry around a large set of keys and they will be less likely to be lost or stolen. Also, if you are a landlord, you don’t have to give residents keys or replace them if they lose them.
You have control. In a company building, you can control and restrict who goes into what part of the building. Also, residents and landlords of apartments and flats, can control who can enter their room with one PIN code and it reduces the risk of anything getting stolen. It is incredibly easy to change the PIN code whenever you like. The combination door locks from The Workplace Depot have over 8,000 possible code combinations with a simple code change facility.
It looks good on your door. Door locks can come in a range of stylish colours that look smart and professional. At The Workplace Depot, we sell mechanical digital door locks in a choice of 3 colours, brass, chrome and satin chrome.
Helps the elderly and disabled. The extra investment into a door lock could bring massive advantages to those who are unable to get to the door quickly and/or who struggle with keys.
