Door Lock with Built-in Alarm Gives Added Home Security

By: Danny Lipford

To keep your house safe without the expense of a security system, install Schlage entry locks with built-in alarm on your exterior doors. The locks have three different alarm settings:

  • Activity Alert: Chimes anytime the door is opened or closed.
  • Tamper Alert: 15 second alarm sounds if there’s an attempt to open the door without a key.
  • Forced Entry Alert: Three minute alarm sounds if there’s an attempt to force the door open.
