Many of our customers are asking for our go-to hardware layout for easier access, Especially regarding keypads. Typically, most Residential doors have two locks, the bottom one being a door knob or lever with keyed entry and the top being a deadbolt with keyed entry.
Since the deadbolts are more secure and durable, there’s no need to have a locking bottom lockset. Our ideal setup is to have a passage function Knob or lever set ( Bottom Lock ), which always remains in the unlocked position. In many of our house lockout calls, people tend to lock the bottom lock while shutting the door behind them, forgetting it’s locked.
Our go-to for those choosing home keypad access functions is Schlage or Yale keypads. Here are some links that may help you find the layout you’re looking for:
