How I Upgraded our Home Security with a Schlage® Lock
Home security in your family home has to be one of the most important elements of owning a home. Keeping your family safe from intruders is essential as well as not worrying about losing your keys. If you’ve been locked out of your home or have made duplicate keys for your teenage kids, etc… you know the frustration of accidently losing them! I’m excited to pair with Schlage® to highlight their Keyless Touchscreen Locks that can help keep your home safe while still looking beautiful with the architecture of your home. Take a look at how I replaced our old deadbolt lock on our exterior door with a Schlage® Touch™ Keyless Touchscreen Deadbolt with Camelot trim.
Schlage® Locks are a great option for exterior front and patio doors:
At my 1987 home, it seemed that the previous owner had a different set of locks and keys for every exterior door. We considered replacing each lock individually but we didn’t want to have 3 sets of keys. Also, our teenage sons always seemed to lose the house keys! Our answer was to use a lock box (you know like the kind that Realtors use?) on the porch door and all they’d have to do is remember the combination to lock box. For years this worked until the deadbolt lock started not turning correctly and a locksmith took out the deadbolt and replaced it with just a plate – not very secure, right? It was time to get better home security! That’s why I was excited to pair with Schlage® and install their Keyless Touchscreen Deadbolt lock.
The not-so-great solution before… lock box with key inside, and NO DEADBOLT (Thank goodness this is a back door!)
Schlage® has Quality Locks in over 40 million homes:
Schlage® offers hardware for your home that is durable, and has technologically advanced electronic locks that for your home’s style and architecture. What I really love is that the deadbolt lock comes with a 3 year Limited Electronics Warranty which is the best in the industry.
How I improved our home security with the Touchscreen Deadbolt Lock:
I thought to replace a door lock was going to be a lot harder than it was! The Schlage® lock instructions were great and they walked me step by step through the process. Since I already had both holes for the deadbolt lock and the doorknob, it was just a matter of changing out the old and installing the new.
My cat, Snow was wondering why I was on the “other side of the door” 🙂
Take a look at how I installed the lock and doorknob.
Take a look at the Schlage® Touch™ Keyless Touchscreen Deadbolt installation video:
I feel a lot safer knowing that our back door is now secure with a deadbolt and not just a simple doorknob lock. I invite you to take a look at all of Schlage® lock hardware online at Amazon.com or Build.com. While I chose the doorknob for our porch door they have an extensive line of knobs, levers, and trim to fit the design of your home. Forget the keys and increase the safety of your home!
