					Deadbolt Locks and Home Security
I believe the key to a home's front door security lies within the
deadbolt lock. Many standard doorknob locks are of a low security grade.
Ironically, these low security grade doorknob locks are the very same
locks that are installed in homes across the country. Over time a
deadbolt lock may experience ware and tear, thus needing to be replaced.
With all of the different brands and choices out there you may find it
difficult picking out a deadbolt lock that suits both your security needs
and budget. The following information will touch base on different types
of deadbolt locks, as well as listing the major pros and cons of each,
helping you to make an educated decision on which deadbolt lock is right
for you.
First up is the single cylinder deadbolt. Single cylinder deadbolts have
a key cylinder only on one side of the lock. On the opposite side there
is a knob. An advantage of single cylinder deadbolts is the fact that you
can open them from the inside without a key. A pos sible disadvantage of
having a single cylinder deadbolt installed, would be if there is any
window or glass installed around and or close enough to your door that if
broken, would allow a burglar to reach through the broken glass and
unlock the deadbolt.
Next up is the double cylinder deadbolt. Double cylinder deadbolts have
keyed cylinders on both sides of the lock. Double cylinder deadbolts do
NOT have a knob! You MUST have a key to open it. The fact that you have
to have a key to open either side make double cylinder deadbolts more
secure than single cylinder deadbolts. Any home that has children whom
are prone to wandering off might want to consider having a double
cylinder deadbolt installed because you would be free of worrying if your
"Adventurous youth" snuck out of the house. However double cylinder
deadbolts could cause major problems in emergency situation because a
person who doesn't have the key would be able to exit safely.
The final deadbolt to review is the keyless entry deadbolt. There are a
number of different types of keyless entry deadbolts that are on the
market today. There are keyless entry deadbolts that can be operated via
remote control, alphanumeric keypad, and even fingerprint readers. Many
consumers find that the sole, yet unfortunate drawback of keyless entry
deadbolts is the hefty price tag that comes along with them.
