Lock is the first anti-theft tool used for home security. But destroying the lock and invading into house is the first choice of home intruders and burglary. 80% of home invasion is through the door with lock destroying or with technical way to unlock the door. Traditional lock is not safe enough now for home security.

How can lock protect home and against destroying. The appearance of fingerprint lock got much attention. But the fingerprint lock can still be destroyed without notice at first time.

Home security is a complex issue. Compared to other parts of the world, many homes in North America have doors and windows a child can kick in. Installing a security system, no matter how advanced, without an adequately strong perimeter is just pushing the cart before the horse. It has been shown that audible alarms are too often ignored - it would be foolish to go investigate a neighbor's alarm rather than calling police. As well, monitoring services must verify the alarm is bona fide - that's why police and firemen stopped responding to automatic alarms many years ago. All that takes time while the intruders can be in and out within a few minutes.

vedardalarm, what's a "robbery password available for duress door open?"

Geo, in much of the world that I've visited, door and window access is much, much weaker than in the US. That is not meant to imply that we have the best in secure doors and windows. Sweden, for example, is considerably more secure (mostly in big cities.)

I take it we agree that without having strong doors and windows first a security system, no matter how sophisticated, is not an effective substitute.
I consider myself lucky, I've lived in a village where most people still don't lock their doors. Seeing the doors and windows building contractors continue to install, one couldn't probably even buy them outside this continent, there wouldn't even be a point in locking. But the times are changing and the situation is probably already different in big cities.
I grew up in Europe where not having bars over windows, strong doors and even iron gates within a family house to create a safe haven was unthinkable. I saw the same around the world. North America is still safer than most parts of the world and I wish we didn't need security systems at all. But that's just a dream.

So is that mean you will not consider fingerprint door lock? A fingerprint is now a key.

Once again, it makes no difference how sophisticated the lock is if there is an easier access. A brick through a window, a kick in the cheap door will do the job. I'd consider a fingerprint door lock as the very last option.

It's been said that locks keep honest people honest. I fully agree.

If you're in a location that mostly needs only a lock, then a fingerprint key is convenient and is really difficult to lose. But another means of (un)locking is needed if you have the need to lend a key.

Well. I can't agree with you more. For the fingerprint door lock, they have got 4 access modes if the lock comes with keypad. They are: Fingerprint,password,MF card, back-up key. Also they got ' Double Authentication Mode ' to unlock the door. Which means you will need fingerprint plus password to get the door unlocked.
If you want your trusted friend,house cleaner,babysitter come in while you are not at home. You can share the password with them. And change it when you are at home. It's very convenient.
