5 Keyless Deadbolt alternatives

When you leave your home or office and lock the door behind you, you expect your possessions to be safe. This is only possible with the right security measures in place, and that begins with the deadbolt you choose. But how do you decide which lock is best suited to your needs?

The Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association grades deadbolts on a scale of 1 to 3. Where grade 1 is the strongest deadbolt, grade 3 would be better suited on an interior door. The BHMA grade is one important factor to consider when selecting a deadbolt. It gives you a quick idea of the strength and durability of the locking mechanism.

The second most important factor to consider is ease of use. We live in an age where we’re not limited to a simple lock and key. Keyless deadbolts with pin pads or other smart features can make life much easier. They eliminate the need to have keys copied. They also allow for more flexibility when you need to grant access to guests or service workers.

Below is our recommendation for the 5 best keyless deadbolt alternatives.

Baldwin locks are famous for their high security standards, and this lock is no exception. The Baldwin Boulder with Zigbee integrates into almost any smart home setup. It features a weather resistant keypad with standard turn-key option as a backup. But what truly makes this lock stand out above the rest is its BHMA Grade 1. It’s a commercial grade lock and can withstand an extremely high level of tampering without breaking.
