The choice of an electronic lock from the entire list of digital door locks is not a complicated procedure, but it requires an understanding of their functional, design, and equipment differences from each other.
The range of electronic locks is not as extensive as the range of mechanical locks, but they have a wide range of technical and functional characteristics.
Digital Door Locks, which one to choose when there is not enough information and there is no experience of using these door locks? This question can be attributed to the second phase of the decision to purchase this household and daily item.
The first is, of course, the emergence of the very desire to acquire the castle. It is no secret that electronic locks are a new subject for the human in the street, and therefore cause certain fears and distrust on the part of buyers.
In this we are trying to share our experience and tell you what is needed when choosing an electronic lock for your entrance doors. We will not focus on safety, reliability and durability- these concepts come with us by default because they are the main criteria that characterize electronic locks.
1. For an electronic lock it does not matter what material the door is made of. They are also installed on iron, wooden, plastic doors. Thus, the material of the door is not important.
2. It is important to know the location of the door. If the door will stand in a separate, private house, then it should be taken into account that the temperature inside the house is at least 20 degrees Celsius.
This applies, as you understand, to the winter period. Some of our clients asked this question in order to install them in houses where they did not often live in winter. Thus, their temperature in the house could drop to 0-10 degrees.
Low temperatures affect the rapid discharge of batteries. Since the batteries are located in the inner case of the lock, this temperature inside the room is recommended.
3. You need to know the thickness of your door leaf. Electronic lock doors cannot always be installed on a door thinner than 30 mm and thicker than 65 mm.
Although some locks go for a thickness of no more than 50 mm. And for doors 80-100 mm, it is necessary to replace some elements of the lock and fasteners. So, you need to know the thickness of your door.
4. One of the main issues is the price level of the electronic lock. The opportunity to receive a discount, the availability of promotions, bonuses and other material incentives for the purchase of this product.
The buyer who decides to choose an electronic lock, as a rule, is guided by the price ranges for one or another model of the lock.
Accordingly, you need to choose a seller who will make you a more profitable offer, without hidden payment commissions, imposed services and with a guarantee, with the possibility of delivery, and, if necessary, installation.
