Home security starts at your front door with – you guessed it – your lock and deadbolt. With option after option on the market for your DIY home security upgrade, how do you cut through the clutter and choose the lock that best suits your needs? In this article, we’ll discuss the process of comparing locks, what to look for, and how to choose the right one.
First and foremost, for what room are you looking for a lock? There are three main functional categories: privacy, passage and entry. Defining the primary function is the first step in choosing a lock. Function will help determine the level of security and endurance your lock will need to uphold. For example, a hallway or interior door typically doesn’t need a higher level of security than your front door. If it’s a high traffic area (such as a bathroom) you’ll want your lock to hold up longer, therefore a higher grade of lock is more appropriate.
