It’s no secret. If you aren’t hiding the spare key under the mat, then it’s in the gutter.

Not there?

With a couple more tries, I’d figure it out.

And if I can guess where you keep the spare key, surely a thief could, too.

We’ve beefed up security at my house thanks to Schlage. With the installation of their Touchscreen Deadbolt on our exterior doors, we now have the convenience of a keyless entry. No more hiding the spare key in the grill.

The Touchscreen Deadbolt puts the highest residential security available to the consumer market at our fingertips. The self monitoring mechanism allows you to enter your home with the use of a pin of your choice, much the same as an ATM machine. Now we can take a morning jog, ride bikes with the kids, or walk the dog without the hassle of carrying a key.

As high tech as this all sounds, it was pretty easy to install. We removed the existing lock and replaced it with the Touchscreen Deadbolt in the Camelot Aged Bronze finish.

As I watched my husband install the lock, I felt more secure with the additional reinforcement plates and hardware installed around the inner deadbolt. Keeping intruders out and our loved ones safe inside is paramount. Here’s how the lock looks from the inside.

Below is how the Touchscreen Deadbolt looks from the outside. The keypad illuminates at night to help you find your way in case someone forgets to turn on the porch light.

If you happen to leave the door unlocked, then the motorized bolt locks the door behind you. The lock also boasts three unique alarms to alert you if someone is tampering with the deadbolt. The alarm is triggered by suspicious door activity and can immediate sense vibrations at the door. It’s an anti-theft deterrent that and warns you before a break in can occur.

If you want even more control, lock and unlock the deadbolt remotely from your smartphone with the integration of the Nexia Home Intelligence. Know who’s coming in and out of your house with real-time text alerts. Well priced at $199, what more could you want from the Schlage Touchscreen Deadbolt…

…I can think of one thing…

Certainly there isn’t a lock on the market that welcomes you home with a slobbery kiss. Until then, we have this guy.
