Lockey has always been known for making top quality locks hardware and security systems. Lockey locks come in both lever and deadbolt designs, with either the AutoLock or FlexLock features. AutoLocks have no levers or thumb turn-keys on the inside. Five seconds after closing the door, they will automatically lock. This is great for shops, storage rooms and doors to basement stairways. Don’t worry if you are locked in — there is an emergency button for a panic-free exit. With FlexLocks, turn-keys on the inside allows manual locking.
Remote Unlocking and Keypad Access
One of the best new features of the Lockey lock’s hardware is their network capability. Their keypads can communicate via Z-waves, making them accessible online through the Bridge secure software. This allows you to manage pass code assignments through a computer or phone, wherever you are. You can remotely unlock the doors, or wirelessly block pass codes and assign new ones. If you are the administrator of the lock, you can receive emails and text alerts whenever someone uses the door. The Bridge identifies the person with the assigned four digit code. This is best for high security rooms which may contain cash, land titles, bonds and other important documents.
Also with the Z-wave network, you can add lighting and video camera accessories to your Bridge remote access. Even if no one is home, you can turn the lights on or off. You can also set the house lights to “greet” you and turn themselves on ahead. The network capability needs no extra wire or locks hardware. The necessary tools are already built-in with the door piece, together with a 9-volt battery. This alkaline battery has a lifetime of 3 years. There is also no need to remove the deadbolt from the door if you have to program it. The keypad itself can be used to program the locks and assign pass codes.
The Lockey keypad lock has taken security to a new level, combining the best of both style and function. Don’t worry about forgetting and leaving your house and important rooms’ doors unlocked. Turn on the automatic locking feature and your doors will automatically be locked behind you after five seconds. These locks can be installed in your office, basement or workroom doors as well as your outside doors. Each locking set has a commercial grade clutching motor drive that has been tested to survive a million cycles. The knob combines the best in tampering resistance with stylish external levers. These levers come in several designs including the Accent, Elan, Flair, Jazz and Plymouth styles. You can also select a satin nickel, aged bronze or bright bronze finish.
Lockey offers a top of the line keypad security system, providing convenient keyless access. No more worrying about lost of forgotten keys. The external part of the lock is a numeric keypad with a 6-digit programming (administrator’s) key, and two random 4-digit pass codes. Up to 19 entry combinations can be saved in the lock’s memory, from 10,000 possible 4-digit combinations. The lock can also be directly programmed through the keypad, even if it is already installed. This way you can do all the necessary set up without taking out the device. After four incorrect 4-digit entries, warning sounds will be played and the keypad will be disabled for thirty seconds. The keypad can be overridden by a special master’s mechanical key. During emergencies, there is an emergency exit button (from the inside) for a panic-free exit. Each keypad has blue backlit LEDs that are easy to see at night. The buttons are made of tough rubber, which is tear- and water-resistant.
Installation of the Lockey lock is easy and convenient. It fits in American standard measurements of door preps. This allows for simple installation and repair services requiring only a screwdriver. The levers can also be reversed to work for left hand or right hand side doors. Even if the lock is electronic, there is no need for special wiring or external power supply. It comes with a 9-volt alkaline battery, which lasts for at least three years.
One of the best features of this brand is the “Lockey LiNK” system for its products. This is made possible by setting up a wireless Z-wave network at the home. The Z-wave makes your keypad lock accessible through the secure Lockey Bridge, with a computer or an Internet-enabled mobile phone. The Bridge allows long distance management of your doors: unlocking, blocking access and reprogramming codes. The application can also keep logs of people entering the door, since the 4-digit code serves as the identification of the user. This makes sure you will always know who has been in your house and when. You can also set the Bridge to give you emails or text message alerts when certain codes were used. The Z-waves of the Lockey keypad lock can also be extended with certain accessories that allow remote control of the lighting features.
