Keypad locks are one of the most elegantly convenient ways of establishing access control at residential or commercial properties. Their benefits soar- from easy entrance (no time fumbling to find keys!) and the ability to custom program codes (even time sensitive codes) into keypad software for new tenants or visitors to use; keypads are the future of access control. Emtek is one of the best makers of keypad devices on the market today, with design bolstered by ASSA-Abloy’s long lasting expertise, marrying smart design and strong construction at a competitive, budget friendly rate. Here’s a guide from the lock installation experts at Nonstop Locksmiths, about the features that make Emtek keypad locks so great.
Technological Security Convenience
Technology has recently made its mark on the slock industry – and Emtek has spearheaded this movement. Emtek’s recent foray in keypad and touch keypad locks allow home and business owners – as well as property managers – to unlock their doors by using a custom programmed code, rather than the usual physical metal key. This has fantastic security benefits, as it helps people avoid the security risks associated with key loss, and burglary techniques like lock bumping and picking that are usually attempted with traditional keyways. Emtek’s touchpad locks utilize interfaces familiar to anyone who uses a smartphone, and has eminently simple programming processes.
Emtek Touchpad Lock Features
Emtek’s touchpad locks cut out the stress of having to look for keys in your pocket as you approach your door. All of it’s codes are fully customizable, and the keypad locks can be programmed with up to 20 unique codes as well as being pre-programmed with 2 unique, secure user codes. This allows homeowners, business owners, and property managers to assign custom chosen codes to specific people like children or housekeepers. You can make the code a custom number that’s super easy to remember, like a day of birth, which avoids any risk of someone forgetting the key code. Furthermore, time sensitive coding can be implemented, which makes it super convenient to allow specific people to enter your home only at designated times, like delivery people or babysitters.
Traditional Security Meets Futuristic Technology
Emtek’s touchscreen keypad locks are futuristic and sleek looking. The keypad itself is backlit, making it super easy to inspect at night. And they are majorly durable! They don’t degrade from everyday use, and the screen is incredibly easy to clean – simply wipe off any fingerprints with a rag, which helps remove evidence of what numbers get commonly pushed. With Emtek’s smart design, these keypad locks are seamlessly solid, with no crevices or cracks in which dirt or dust can accumulate. Their stylish appearance seamlessly blends into any home or business’ aesthetic appearance, looking small, understated, elegant, and nearly futuristic. They come complete with a Latch and Strike Plate for the full package, and are available in a vast variety of colors and finishes for a custom aesthetic flair.
One of the great benefits of Emtek keypad locks, is that they utilize a traditional keyway cylinder – which if needed, can be rekeyed or replaced by a trustworthy licensed locksmith. This allows for further security, and easy customization, with the technological convenience of a keypad being married with the traditionally durable and trusted security of a deadbolt lock. It’s also customizable! You can outfit your Emtek keypad lock with any lever handle from Emtek’s vast archive of lever makes, models, and styles, in order to create a custom look. Examples include the curvy and round Emtek Triton lever, and the minimal and modernist Emtek Stuttgart lever.
