Keyless locks

We are thinking about replacing our front door, so I was browsing deadlocks and see there’s now some keyless options that use fingerprints, cards and keypads. Anyone got any first-hand experience with these? It would be great not to have loads of keys to carry around, especially when I quickly pop down to the shops or go for a walk.

I think they are a great idea. We're going to use one with a code for our backyard games room. That way you don't have to carry keys on you all the time, and we will be able to share the code with friends and family who want to pop in and use the pool when we're not around.

Re: Keyless locks

A friend of mine has Samsung keyless locks on all her exterior doors and she couldn't recommend them more. Like @Jason said, it's perfect for when they are on holidays and need someone to drop by and feed the cat or put the bins out.

I haven't got them but would like them and have heard lots of good things.

I assume an override key would need to be kept somewhere outside the house should you forget your code or the electrics die on the device.

Anyone know?

Anyone know if there's any that can be used on a sliding door?

I forgot about this original post and it didn't come up in search so I just created this one https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Interiors/Keyless-entry-feedback-suggestions/m-p/14474#M3056

@CathD What did you end up going with?

Re: Keyless locks

We ended up installing a screen door as well for security, so we didn't go with a keyless option @ProjectPete. I do often wish we had though, especially when I am fumbling with my keys in the rain!
