Digilocks: what are they and how can i install them?


What is a digilock?

A digilock is an electronic lock that offers a keyless solution to the security of a room or belonging. They are relatively inexpensive (with prices ranging from £25-£90 per lock) and are easy to install. They are commonly used as an easy method of security in schools, homes and the workplace. 

What are the benefits of using a digilock?

  • No need for keys- meaning that you can always access the room.
  • Increased security- you need to have knowledge of the combination to open.
  • More practical than keys if lots of people need access to a room ( saves having to distribute large amounts of keys and keep track of who has them).
  • Can be used indoors and outdoors.
  • Unlike with key locks that need to be changed in the event of a security breach, digilocks need only have the combination changed.
