Types of locks in the market

There are basically Three types of locks in the market today, these are; Key in Knob locks, which are the oldest locks, The smart lock, and the conventional deadbolts. The conventional deadbolts do not come with fancy features, but they are efficient in keeping the doors safe. Popular models include the drill-proof options, inexpensive deadbolts, and the high-end locks. Most conventional deadbolts are single cylinder locks. Some of the benefits of deadbolt locks are that they are rekeyable and are more budget-friendly. The disadvantage of conventional deadbolt locks is that they do not possess the convenience and added features of smart locks. 

Smart locks are modern lock types that work with remote and voice controls. They perform much more than just locking doors, they come with added features such as geofencing, and access logs, hence you can view the people who access your door from time to time. To use smart locks, you will need a Wi-Fi internet connectivity or Bluetooth that will transmit signals to your smartphone or any other device from which you can remotely lock and unlock the door. The pros of the smart lock are; They are convenient and can be locked or unlocked remotely. The problem with smart locks is that they can be hacked digitally, and they are more expensive.

Of all these older, traditional lock types, only the padlock is a standalone lock type that is not attached to anything. The deadbolts are normally installed on the external doors, and they come in three versions which are; the single, double and Thumb-turn.
