It seems technology is advancing in just about everything, but you probably believe there are some things where technology won’t make a mark. One example may be the humble door lock, but what you may be surprised to learn is what you believed to be something out of a science fiction movie is actually available for your home or business today. Fingerprint locks are no longer just something you see on the big screen, they are now available for installation on your property. As exciting as all of that is, are they really something worth spending your hard earned money on?
The first thing you need to know before attempting to answer that question is fingerprint locks are nowhere near as expensive as you probably think they are. If you were to ask the average person how much they think these types of locks would cost, they would probably take a guess that lands in the thousands of dollars. That is actually way off, as you can very easily pick up a state of the art fingerprint lock for a couple of hundred dollars or less. Of course, the more features you want, the more you can expect to pay, but it’ll still be less than you expected.
Now you know fingerprint locks are affordable, the next step is to decide if it is worth changing out your current door locks. The first thing you have to take into consideration is how often you or another family member has lost a set of keys. If you have done so a few times, how much did it take to replace everything? Was it just the cost of replacement keys, or did you have to get the locks changed out completely? If it was your business keys that were lost or stolen, chances are it was an expensive proposition.
The next thing to consider is the peace of mind that will come from having keyless fingerprint locks installed. No-one can steal a key from you and have it copied so that they can gain access to your property. That means you don’t have to panic if a key is lost. The only way you won’t be able to gain access to your home or business is if you happen to lose your fingers, the odds of which are pretty low if we are being honest.
If you still like the idea of having a key as backup, you can get fingerprint locks that come with a combination of biometrics and traditional locks. What all of this adds up to is conclusive evidence fingerprint locks are well worth adding to your property. You don’t have to worry about them looking out of place, either, as the stylish locks look great on any type of door. The question now has to be asked is not whether you should make the change to fingerprint locks, but why you haven’t done so already?
