If you have a pool in your backyard, then you understand just how important it is to keep your property secure. Unfortunately, the average pool gate latch is just not enough to do its job right. Easy to unlock, a pool latch welcomes unwanted visitors, and children not yet old enough to take a dip in the pool by themselves with just a simple nudge, this is where keyless pool locks come in.
Allow the lock and security experts at R.J. lock to guide you though reasons that you should go keyless this summer by installing a new lock on your pool gate.
- Increase Security
When you have a sub-par locking mechanism, your pool gate can be easily compromised, making it extremely difficult to properly secure your property. If you choose a gate that only locks on one side, it’s easy for a trespasser to reach over the gate and unlock it from the inside.
Consider installing a double-sided keyless lock, with a two-sided keypad, enabling you to lock the gate from the inside as well. This not only improves the safety and security of your property but protects your privacy as well.
- Increased Customization
When you choose a keyless lock for your pool gate, you can customize the codes and access points to best suit you and your family. For example, you can add codes that will only work at certain times to prevent access to your pool. You will have the ability to change codes at any time, so if you give your code out to someone and you no longer want them to have access, you are free to do so 24/7.
You can choose either mechanical locks or battery operated. A battery-operated system’s keypad will light up by touch to make it easy to enter your code in the dark, they are easy to use and easily installed, however, the batteries may die on you. A mechanical lock does not have a light-up keypad, however they are heavy-duty and incredibly reliable, and easy to use.
- Increase Safety
According to Stanford Children’s Health, the leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1-4 is fatal drowning. The majority of these drownings and near-drownings occur in a residential swimming pool, and in open water sites.
If your pool does not feature a powerful locking mechanism, it can be easy for a child to figure out how to open it. Keyless locks virtually guarantee to keep children out of your swimming area.
- Increase Access Control
Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for trespassers, freeloaders and other characters to gain unauthorized access to pool areas- especially in residential communities that backyards filled with pools. Installing a keyless lock on your pool gate can ensure that only residents and guests who have been given access to the code will be able to obtain access to your pool.
