Nothing is more delightful than finding something beautiful to do a functional job. The all-important locks on exterior doors are a prime example because finding just the right decorative door hardware is also going to keep you safe.


The first step before shopping is to plan out the entire task. Are you building a new home, moving to another house, or remodeling to improve the curb appeal – and the value? Outside and inside, this is the time to decide the most appealing combination of deadbolts, handlesets, knobs and levers.


Next step: tap the guidance of a good online resource. To readily find the style, colour, finish, security features – and even how they will look in various rooms – go to the Design Centre tab on the website of Schlage, a leading brand in this field. If Upgrading Your Home Security is the top priority, for example, here's a snapshot on how to do that:


Deadbolts = Maximum Defense


Install deadbolts on every entry door to the house. Choose models with the biggest, strongest bolt available, like those in the B60 series. Certified by ANSI, these deadbolts meet the Grade 1 performance standard which includes an increased latch bolt size for maximum kick-in resistance, as well as an anti-pick shield to protect the internal components from tampering. All models are sleek with contoured edges for added style – and for added beauty, homeowners can select from up to nine, attractive finishes.


Go Keyless


Add the latest ultra-modern feature. With the fully loaded Touchscreen Deadbolt simply entering a code locks and unlocks letting you dispense with keys altogether. Other features include an anti-pick shield, an auto-lock option, a built-in alarm, warning alerts for low batteries – and you can also add capability for video surveillance, lights, heating, cooling and more. Beauty is served up in two distinct designs (Camelot and Century) both crafted to give a choice in colour and finish.


Built-In Alarm


Now you can get the premium deadbolt with an audible alert. Take a look at the first-of-its-kind design called the Keyed Entry Lock With Built-In Alarm. Once programmed, you will instantly hear when someone goes in or out, tampers with your lock, or tries to force their way in. This ground-breaking innovation – in several eye-catching designs and finishes – is completely customizable from low to maximum security, at various sensitivity levels – and the alarm is right inside the lock offering a budget alternative to monthly security fees.


Be Smart Remotely


Use wireless technology to monitor your home security away from the premises. This is done by connecting your premium deadbolt to an Internet-based, monthly subscription service called Nexia Home Intelligence. From a mobile device, you will be able to see your property, lock and unlock doors, pre-schedule the monitoring for specific times every day, and receive text alerts when the alarm is triggered.
