Why are there so many different types of digital locks and which one is suitable for me?

We are here today to answer that question

There are many different models with different functions and we are here to explain them to you.

Some functions of digital lock include Fingerprint, Pin code, RFID Access, Key, Bluetooth, Wifi

First we'll talk about the 3 different types of locking mechanism.


1) Mortise Locks

Mortise locks are locks that have a latch as well as a bolt to secure the door into the door frame, this types of lock are usually what you find in the typical traditional lock of BTO, Condo and Landed properties. Some mortise locks are designed with more than 1 bolt to increase the security of the door. Even within digital mortise locks there are 2 types of mortise locks, push-pull and lever handle which we will explain later on.




2) Deadbolt Locks

Deadbolt locks are locks with a solid cylindrical piece made of either steel, bronze or brass. It is arguably stronger than mortise as the material is thicker, heavier and the bolt can't be force back unlike spring bolts. The bolt itself also extend longer into the frame of the door so it is more secure. Deadbolt locks are usually paired with a latch or knob as the lock itself does not have a handle.

3) Rim Locks

Last but not least, Rim Locks. Rim locks are generally cheaper than mortise and deadbolt digital locks as their locks do not lock into the door frame itself but is locked into a bracket attached to the door frame, so many would say that it is less secure compared to mortise or deadbolt locks but if your looking for convenience and value for money, this is the type of lock for you. It is similar to deadbolt locks as it requires a handle to open the door as it does not have a built in handle like mortise locks.
