Electronic keyless door locks, also known as digital door locks, are growing in popularity in Australia due to their convenience and high level of security. Electronic door locks require power via mains or batteries. The types of electronic keyless door locks you can buy are:
Keypad Door Locks (pin code door locks)
These electronic keyless locks require a code to gain access. They can be electronic or mechanical.
A swipe card is used to gain entry.
These keyless locks use a remote to lock and unlock a door. While mainly used in cars, these are becoming a popular choice for homes and commercial buildings.
Biometric Door Locks
This electronic door lock uses fingerprint or facial recognition to gain access.

Frequently Asked Questions
Good quality and properly fitted keyless entry door locks are very secure. If your electronic door lock isn’t installed properly or is faulty, then it has the potential to be compromised.
A high-quality digital lock that has been programmed properly is generally safe against hackers. Electronic keyless door locks that have adequate encryption software, longer passwords and a 2-factor authentication are less likely to be compromised. At Central Screens and Locks, we only stock trusted brands that manufacture electronic keyless door locks with the best security protocols.
There is no electronic keyless door lock that is the best for everyone. It will depend on the security requirements, budget and user needs. Card access door locks are excellent for commercial uses, such as at gyms or hotels, while at home, a biometric lock may be more convenient.
Which lock type is superior will depend on a range of factors including purpose, the needs of the user and their budget. For instance, a cheap electronic keyless door lock will perform worse than a good quality keyed lock, so if budget is a barrier, you’d be better to choose a quality keyed lock.
