Keypad entry


I want to change out our existing door lock and dead bolt to the one below. Does the keypad entry mainly replace the deadbolt or both door locks? I am trying to figure out how it fits.

So you would still need a key essentially for the bottom lock? It's mainly for our son who might forget his key when he comes home after school.

The bottom knob can be removed, remove the shaft that connect the key lock to the inside knob that locks it to disable it.

I just want the new keypad entry to cover the deadbolt and the bottom knob inside and out.

There are, but you have to look at commercial locksets. Go to Schlage.com and choose Business.

If anything I think I just need to replace the deadbolt and get one that has a switch inside instead of me having to put the key in to unlock it from the inside...

Check out smarthome.com also. A friend of ours has one that replaced the deadbolt and it comes in handy for her daughter & when we need to go over there to drop something off, or I have to fix her Internet or tv setup. No having to worry about getting a key with them.

There are some out there that use the z-wave tech, and can interface with a third party website like Oourhomespaces.com, etc and you can track when someone comes or goes, or disable it completely from your smartphone, change the lock code, etc.

I liked it until I seen that it takes batteries.

That is how they work. Even the keycard units at hotels, motels on the doors use batteries.

The batteries actually last like a year or so, so no biggie.

I know but I have to think about the worst case scenario too.
