Se­cu­rity is a top pri­or­ity for all home own­ers and their fam­i­lies.Tech­nol­ogy is rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing the way we pro­tect, mon­i­tor and in­ter­act with our home. Se­cu­rity sys­tems are be­com­ing quick and cus­tom­iz­a­ble of­fer­ing home own­ers the abil­ity to en­sure top safety and high lev­els of con­ve­nience.

Key­less se­cu­rity locks elim­i­nate that haunt­ing feel­ing of for­get­ting to lock the door and the re­sult­ing worry for the safety of your home. Elec­tronic, key­less locks, like the Sch­lage Touch in­crease home pro­tec­tion and se­cu­rity be­cause there is no cylin­der to pick for po­ten­tial in­trud­ers.

This tech­nol­ogy gives home own­ers the abil­ity to cre­ate codes to al­low ac­cess for friends, and delete them when not needed any­more. It is im­por­tant to look for touch­screen locks that are fin­ger-print re­sis­tant that won’t rub away with con­tin­ued use or due to weather con­di­tions.

Fam­i­lies us­ing elec­tronic locks should be aware of how to set se­cure codes to en­sure the high­est level of safety. When cre­at­ing a code for your home lock there a few best prac­tices to be aware of. Choose a code that never uses the same num­bers twice and avoid se­quen­tial num­bers to in­crease se­cu­rity. Stay away from com­monly used com­bi­na­tions like 1234, 0000, and 1111 be­cause these are the eas­i­est for an in­truder to guess. It is best to cre­ate a code that uses mem­o­rable num­bers, like an an­niver­sary, or grad­u­a­tion date.These are not ob­vi­ous enough for an out­sider to think of but have sig­nif­i­cant mean­ing so that your fam­ily mem­bers can re­mem­ber the code.

Not only do touch­screen locks pro­vide high lev­els of se­cu­rity but they add dis­tinct con­ve­nience for busy fam­i­lies on the go.This means no more wor­ry­ing about where your lost keys have dis­ap­peared to, or con­cerns about safety for that backup spare key un­der your door­mat.

Take these proac­tive steps to keep your fam­ily and home safe and elim­i­nate risk from po­ten­tial in­trud­ers.
