Our front door isn’t in the best shape. Paint is chipping off in some places, and it was obvious that the previous owners had swapped out the old door knob and deadbolt for a different style, but you can still see the outline of the old one. The one that they swapped it out with isn’t the nicest, so we’ve had plans to get a new one for quite some time (and also to paint the front door, which we will get to! It’s still on the list.). We did finally cross off the first item from our list, and that was replacing the front door lock. We were excited to swap it out with a new keyless lock and pretty door knob from Schlage®.
Schlage® has a few different types of keyless electronic products—including the Schlage Touch™ lock, the Schlage Connect™ lock, and the Schlage Sense™ system. They are all convenient, secure and technologically advanced locks.
The Schlage Sense™ system is absolutely amazing. It’s designed to work with Apple HomeKit technology, which has key-free convenience and gives you the choice of entering your home using the lock’s illuminated touchscreen or with your iPhone. HomeKit also allows you to control the lock with your voice using Siri. We also do have the option of using a key if we want to.
I was impressed to find out that Schlage® locks are currently found in more than 40 million homes, so they must be doing something right! Their door hardware is durable and also comes in a variety of styles, and they offer the most technologically advanced locks, plus the convenience of keyless entry. We’ve been playing around with ours and it really is so cool. One thing I love about the keyless feature is the fact that if the boys get off the school bus before I make it outside to wait for them, they can unlock the door themselves by typing in the code. No need to wait outside in the heat or cold, and no need to risk them losing a house key or fumbling with it.
Installation was straightforward and didn’t require a professional, and you can definitely tell that the materials are high quality. It’s much more stylish than our old plain-jane doorknob and lock too. I like that we had different options of designs and finishes to choose from. We chose the Camelot style in the Aged Bronze finish.
Schlage® products are available online at Amazon and Build.com, as well as retail locations like the Home Depot and Lowe’s, and they are a cost effective way to freshen up your home for under $500 (prices for their products start at $35.99). The electronics come with a 3-year limited electronics warranty, which happens to be the best in the industry.
Would you love having the convenience of keyless entry? Let me know your thoughts!
