The Two Most Popular Home Security Locks – The Padlock and the Keypad Lock

Every home in America has a lock on all their doors and windows. The problem is most homeowners don’t use them. How can we say that? Close to 40% of all home burglaries happen through unsecured doors and windows. That is just a fact!

So an easy step to improving your home security is to start locking your doors and windows even when you’re at home.

In this article we are going to discuss home security locks and specifically the two most popular ones.

The most common door lock is the double cylinder dead bolt. It can fit any standard size door and dead bolt openings. This device prevents break-ins on doors with glass windows because each side needs a key to unlock it. It has a steel rod built into the latch to prevent tampering.

The most popular lock is not even a lock for your door, but a padlock with alarm built-in. It is made out of heavy-duty super strong aluminum and is completely weatherproof because it’s outdoors most of the time. It has a built-in alarm that alerts you when somebody is tampering with the padlock. That alarm is 110 dB and lasts for 10 seconds. The padlock can be locked with or without the alarm function. This is a great way to secure a toolbox in the back of a truck or for homeowners who have a freestanding shed in their backyard. It can also be used as a bicycle lock or any other product you want to protect with that extra level of security. The heavy-duty aluminum padlock prevents tampering by lock picking or sawing materials.

The second most popular home security lock is the one that has a remote control and keypad that comes in nickel, brass and bronze models. The remote control provides immediate access so there is no fumbling with keys. The electronic keypad can handle six users and the remote control can work up to 30 feet away.

The door lock has an auto locking function that re-locks the door every time it’s closed. One-time user codes are available for housekeepers or other home staff or repairmen who need access to the house. If you happen to have a disabled person living in your home, that individual can unlock the door from the inside without having to get up or walk downstairs. The remote control can act as a blessing for women who are returning from a shopping trip and have their arms full of groceries.

The Siren Padlock Alarm sounds a 110db siren when someone tampers with the lock.

The remote control Keypad Lock is a convenient way to access your home without keys.
