DISCLOSURE OF MATERIAL CONNECTION: http://cmp.ly/2 (aff)
Recently, we got new front door put on our house (thank god because my other door was horrible and just off. You couldn't open or close the door without a tug of war). When we did that, we decided to put a new lock on it. We opted to go with the Kwikset SmartCode locks. I have to say that we LOVE them. If I could think of stronger word than I love, I would use it. Seriously, they are that awesome.
We had our contractor install them (who, by the way, has the same set on his house and gushed about how much he loved his), so I don't know how hard they are to install (though the direction said you just need a screwdriver. The only other thing you need is 4 AA batteries). However, they are simple to use. You get to pick the code you want (Since I live with an engineer, we, of course, had to use an eight number password). The really cool thing is that you can assign special codes for people use and delete them when you want. For example, if you go away on vacation, you can give your house sitter her own code. When your vacation is over, you can delete that code, and it won't work anymore! The lock also has an auto lock function. No more having to remember if you locked the door, because it does it for you! The beautiful part of this lock is that you no longer need your keys to get in. It is so nice when I have my arms full of kids, groceries, or whatever, that I am not fumbling around for keys. The keypad lights itself up (which is helpful at night) and Madison (my 5 year old) can use it. She often opens the door herself. If you don't want to use the auto lock, there also is a lock button on the keypad.
Since I absolutely love this product, I knew I had to get one for a lucky reader of mine! Yes, you too can get a SmartCode lock like me! You'll be able to pick the style (lever, knob, handleset) and the finish too! Here's what you need to do:
Leave a comment on this post. Tell me why you need this lock. I also want to know which finish you'd want (brass, nickel, bronze) and what kind of style you want (lever, knob, handleset).
