“This door lock is excellent. I had no trouble installing it or programming it. Directions for programming are super easy to follow. I’m using it to secure my office, and it works perfectly for that. It feels like it will last a long time and fits in standard doors. I love the three different options for opening it (key, code, or fingerprint) and that it automatically locks when I close it so I don’t have to worry about “setting” it. I would consider using this on an outside door, but I would have to get a different dead bolt.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
9. Morning Industry Keypad Deadbolt ($86.99)

“I installed this about two years ago. I haven’t had any problems at all. It opens when it should open and locks when you push the button. Battery life is definitely not an issue. I changed mine after about a year and a half. It seemed to be working a little slower, but I changed them mainly because I was nervous that they lasted so long. It has been great not having to keep a key on my car’s key fob and it’s even better that I don’t have to take keys with me when I take the dog for a walk. I am moving next month and I will be buying one for my next house.”- Amazon’s Customer Review.

“I replaced a traditional deadbolt on a patio storage door, this will be much more convenient, I don’t always have my keys handy when I’m out in the yard. Super easy install, the electronic function is very sensitive, though. The lock felt a little stiff with the key, but it turned out that the alignment of the original latch plate was slightly off so the bolt rubbed it so the motor would abort locking/unlocking. The tiny adjustment wasn’t enough to patch the screw holes and drill new ones so I used a Dremel to grind the latch plate just a bit. Works perfectly!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

I haven’t used the lock yet but have been playing with it while home. It’s just as strong of a lock as my previous deadbolt and is so easy to use. Love that there is a backlight and just one push of a button locks it. Always recognises the code and unlocks well. No complaints so far.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

The programming of codes is simple, and codes can be added or deleted just by using the keypad. Keypad use as far as entering codes or even updating codes is straightforward. The buttons are also epoxy-coated, so the numbers won’t “wear off” thus revealing the codes used. I have a separate code for each family member, and can easily add codes if I have a contractor stopping by.
