Deadbolts are types of locks that will only open by rotating the lock cylinder with a key. There are three types of deadbolt locks, namely single cylinder, double cylinder, and keyless cylinder. Single cylinder locks will only open with a key on one side of the door and a knob on the other. One cylinder locks are not recommended if doors are near windows because they can be opening by breaking the window and opening it through the window. Double cylinder locks require keys on both sides of the door. A keyless cylinder lock is a type of lock that is basically a standard deadbolt lock that will either require a key or password or both of them.
Keyless locks are locks that don’t require physical keys but passcodes. These types of locks provide extra security because every person needs the passcode. With this type of lock, you don’t have to worry about misplacing the keys . Keyless locks are best suited for businesses instead of residential homes.
Make sure to consult a licensed, bonded and insured locksmith in your area before you decide on which locks to use for your house or business
