Imagine being able to change your locks in a matter of seconds . . . wouldn’t that have been handy the last time your child lost their key to the house (sorry Mom, I know I did that once or twice!).
What about the family friend who was the last option you could find to come over and let your dog out while you were going to be out all day – you hand out your key, but did you ever get that key back? Contractor coming over to do some fix-ups and you give them a key, they finish the job . . . did you remember to get the key back? Did they make copies? How many copies are floating around out there? Who all can get into your house?
The Kwikset SmartKey and The Home Depot can solve all of these concerns in a matter of seconds.
Now, by using this new technology from Kwikset SmartKey, if you are going out of town, you can set the locks to work for your new alternate key, give your alternate key to your dog-sitter and feel safe and comfortable when you return, simply reset the lock to your primary key set and now the “alternate” key will no longer work.
If you need your dog-sitter the next week, simply switch the lock back to the alternate setting and the alternate key will work until you change it back. What a great idea to increase your security and peace of mind!
Here’s an even better idea, change all your locks to the Kwikset SmartKey and you can have all of your locks set to use the same key, and you have the option to change just one of the locks to an alternate key as well.
Installing the Kwikset SmartKey is just as simple as changing any normal door lock, we thought it best to put ours in our side door and the install is pretty simple and can be done in under 30 minutes.
The instructions are very easy too. Simply insert the current key, turn it a quarter turn to the right and then insert the SmartKey learn tool, remove the current key, instert the new key and turn it a half turn counter clockwise, and you are done.
The Kwikset SmartKey Locks are definitely something we can and will use to keep our peace of mind and still let others help us out by gathering the mail, letting the dog out, or any other possibility you can think of.
That’s why I’m excited to offer the giveaway below!
