Keypads: Garrett Lovejoy, director of product
management for ASSA ABLOY Smart Residential,
contends that keypad locks have long
been the entry-level option for consumers beginning
to explore smart lock and digital entryway
upgrades. Th e availability of both keyed
and 100% keyless keypad locks off er consumers
the option of keeping a physical key or going
key-free and tamper-proof, or upgrading
altogether to a full smart lock.
" Keypad and touchscreen technologies provide
users with convenient and secure access through
unique codes, " he says. " Users can set codes for
guests or service providers for specifi c days/times
that need temporary home access, or for children
or other household members who may not have
a smartphone. A keypad lock also removes the
need to hide a physical key for guests. "
Wireless: Nick English, director, sales for
Kwikset Residential Access Solutions, emphasizes
that there's no question wireless technology
has made smart locks much more desirable.
" Installation is far easier with no hard wiring
to worry about, which also makes installation
far less expensive. More importantly, as wireless
technology has evolved, it's become more reliable,
and consumer concerns about connectivity
have unquestionably been reduced, " he says.
