What Options Exist for Keyless Entry for Front Door Deadbolts
November 20, 2012 10:26 AM   Subscribe

Are there any deadbolts that feature keyless entry using a fob instead of a number pad? I've seen several locks with number pads, but they look pretty ugly. I'd like a deadbolt that is as streamlined looking as possible, but that can be opened with a proximity sensor or button on a key fob instead of a key. This is for a front door.

The Sunnect can do either fob or number pad, and the number pad is not visible when the panel is closed, but I find that the biometric ones are the most sleek/unobtrusive looking (from the outside, anyway).

There's a large variety of options using fobs, HID cards, biometric, or keypads here: http://www.gokeyless.com

EDIT: a good example from Schlage is here in a variety of finishes at a very reasonable price point.

No idea how well it works since it's not really on the market yet, but the Lockitron retrofits an existing deadbolt and will unlock by proximity when your phone gets close.

Lockitron is your best bet, however now the inside if your door is going to look ugly.

I doubt you can find anything as streamlined as you want, there will be power requirements and will require some sort of battery pack.

Would Lockitron do what you want?
