You may remember that back in September we had an attempted break-in while I was home. It was a really odd situation and thankfully nothing was taken or damaged. It did scare me though and ever since I’ve been researching the best of the best in home security options. That’s why I was excited to receive for review the Yale Real Living Key Free Touchscreen Deadbolt.
1. No Cylinder Means No Lockpicking
I was interested to learn that this touchscreen deadbolt provides an increase in security because the cylinder is the most vulnerable part of a lock and the Yale Real Living Touchscreen Deadbolt doesn’t have one. Having no cylinder gives the lock a clean appearance and it means that lock picking and bumping are nearly impossible. The robust construction also protects the lock from abuse and makes it resistant to tampering.
2. User Pin Code
With the network module you can program up to 250 user pin codes and 25 without. This is wonderful because if you can allow someone temporary access (a dog sitter etc) and then delete the pin code later.
3. Automatic Re-Locking
After you enter your code the lock and the deadbolt unlocks, it will automatically re-lock after 30 seconds. This re-locking time can be adjusted between 10-240 seconds.
4. Wrong Code Entry Limit
After a specified number of wrong pin codes being entered the unit will shut down and not allow operation. The amount is adjustable from one to ten times.
5. Tamper Alert
An audible alarm will sound if there is an attempt to remove the outside lock from the door.
6. Trendy & Stylish Design
This deadbolt has a trendy, hi-tech design that comes in a number of finishes to match your home: polished brass, satin nickel, and oil rubbed bronze. You can also purchase a matching handle.
7. Illuminated Touchscreen
This is a great feature for nighttime use. It makes entering your pin code even on the darkest of nights simple.
8. Modern Day Convenience
The keyless entry touchscreen is so convenient to use that I don’t know how we got by before without it. Imagine arriving to your door with your arms full of groceries and having to find a free hand to dig into the depths of your purse or pocket to find your keys and then fumble to unlock the door. With this unit those days are gone. Just punch in your code, open the door, walk inside. So much easier!
We love the Yale Real Living Key Free Touchscreen Deadbolt and recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a new lock for their home. It’s made for use on all standard interior and exterior doors and even has a tapered bolt which accommodates misaligned doors. It’s a fantastic product and the added sense of security and convenience it’s provided has encouraged us to purchase a second for our other exterior door.
