Your front door can have a really cool lock

I think this is a great way to secure your front door. You don’t even need a key now – just your finger.

Of course, fingerprint readers are not exactly new technology. But I think a lot of people aren’t aware of it yet.

With this type of lock on your front door (or any door), you can unlock it with a quick swipe of your finger. The lock utilizes biometrics to scan the subdermal part of your finger (more accurate than a standard fingerprint scan).

You can also use it to set different levels of access to your home. You can set it for Continuous Access for family members. Or, you can set “Limited Date” access for friends or perhaps a contractor. You also have the option of Restricted Access – this means that access is limited to certain dates and times, such as a housecleaner that comes at the same time each week.

Not sure if this is the right choice for your locks? Take the brief quiz at the Kwikset website.
