  • 13 Apr 2017

Keyless entry systems are becoming more and more popular in the UK. Everyone needs a secured home, but not everyone knows how to best protect their residential building. Nowadays, a lot of people experience a home lockout, which is a very frustrating situation. 

One of the main reasons of becoming locked out of your house is losing of a key or leaving it in an inappropriate place. According to the AZ Locksmith experts, it’s highly advisable to install a keyless entry system in your home, in order to avoid accidents and emergency situations related to keys. 

Moreover, if you manage an apartment complex or live in one, it’s a great idea to set up a keyless entry security system. Such systems can prevent difficult situations, caused by lost keys, malfunctioning deadlocks and other issues. According to the Telegraph younger people in the UK are much more likely to rent than they were a few years ago. So, more and more landlords need to have information about the most cost-effective and convenient options for protecting their tenants. 

Here are some main reasons, for having a keyless entry system in your apartment building:

You don’t have to change the locks

Almost all new tenants want to change existing locks, because they fear that the former inhabitants will come and steal their valuables. Apartment managers have a lot of stuff to do for preparing an apartment for new residents and replacing the locks is an additional worry for them. In case of having keyless locks, they can save a lot of time and money. Since there is no need of using a key for operating locks, the doors don’t have to be rekeyed frequently as new people rent the apartment. Furthermore, you won’t have to constantly change keys, door knobs, deadbolts and so forth.

Simple use

Keyless entry systems are quite simple to set up and don’t involve wiring throughout doors. If a tenant goes away, you won’t need to install a new lock, but you will be able to change the entry code right on the code pad or on a computer. You won’t need any tool as it is in case of traditional locks. 

Keys get lost very often and as a landlord, you always should keep duplicate ones in case a tenant loses his/her key. And the lost keys may be found by strangers and even by criminals. So, you cannot feel secure, when there are a lot of lost keys. So, it is another advantage of having keycard systems. 

Such security systems are convenient not only for apartment managers, but also for tenants. And the satisfied renters will tell their friends about the advantages of living in your complex. So, more new tenants can be attracted if you will make comfortable to live in your apartments. Your potential residents will see that you are concerned about their safety with this state-of-the-art technology. 

Cost-effective and swift solutions

Keyless lock systems are very cost-effective, because of their simple installation process and because of no need to pay rekeying or replacing costs. In addition, many such systems provide time limited codes. So, if you need other people to enter your apartment, such as a repairman, you can set up a temporary code, so that you or the tenant doesn’t have to waste time letting other people in and out.
