Just wondered if anyone is using a keyless entry door lock with alarm on thier houses?? Something like or close to the the Schlage Camelot units-

http://consumer.schlage.com/pr.....0619%20CAM

I'm changing two entry doors & want to go crazy on door locks Laughing Really though, I'm an expert at losing keys & the alarm feature is interesting. Does it work or is the alarm just a problem? Either way, I NEED the keyless entry function. Everyone I've talked with says to go with the Schlage brand vs all others.

I dont have it, but 2 of my brothers use them and it works great. Especially when someone needs to get in and he's not home. He can just give the code. Like if he forgets something at home and has a friend stop by to get it. Safer than leaving a key around

Cool! I'm just so bad with keys that I have to do something. I've had to break into my own house one too many times Embarassed The alarm thing is interesting, just not sure if it would be more of a hassle than its worth. I do have security cameras so the alarm is kind of pointless unless I'm actually home.

As far as brand, at the stores I checked (Lowes, Home Depot & Ace) both suggested Schlage since they are the king of this stuff. I wasnt too sure since they were twice the price of other brands (Kwickset, etc). Most of the reviews I've read say they are pretty much all equal. Not sure where they are made at, that will make a difference.

as with anything, you get hat you pay for. All those companies have various versions of their items at different price / quality points.

I usually stick with Kwickset or Schlage but steer clear of their cheaper models.

Looks cool, I'de love to have one. Since it's battery powered, I wonder how well it works on those really cold days when batteries respond slow. Anyone know? It likely has a 'backup' key for when the battery dies.

I've got the same model on my house (previous owner had installed it). It works well enough, but I still carry a key with me since it will occasionally decide it doesn't want to work.

I wound up with these & love them-

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005K.....BFHON6N5JF

I was unsure at first but they arrived & looked sturdy, plus no batteries to die! Played around with them & took them to a locksmith to get them keyed the same & get his opinion. He the told me they are Schlage parts, just not the name (hence the $59 price). You can code it for 3-10 digits and trust me, its pretty hard to get lucky & hit the right combination (I tried). They have different finishes & the handles can be changed, so they dont look too "commercial." I really have no complaints.

After thinking about it, a door lock with an alarm on it is cool, but not the best for my setup. I have two cameras that cover the majority of the exterior so by the time someone makes it to the door I've got them on camera Wink I'm away at work a lot so a regular monitored is probably a better idea.

Looks like a commercial model. Recently went out to Colorado and stayed with my aunt who had the keyless. Was a nice model and very handy.
