Purchasing, installing, replacing and repairing doorknobs is one task homeowners are often ill-equipped to manage on their own.  It may seem like a fairly straightforward thing but as is the case with most homeownership tasks today, there are many different options from which to choose.  Not only are there are different size doorknobs and deadbolts, but different finishes and styles including traditional and even some equipped with smart technology.  And, doorknobs get installed in different ways depending on the door material, height, preferences, and any implemented technology.  Needless to say, it is far from a straightforward process.

It is ideal for homeowners to opt for professional installation, repair and maintenance of doorknobs, door hardware and deadbolts.  Not only will it give you the most professional finished look but it will also provide peace of mind that they are able to perform that tasks they need to perform correctly and safely.  First, any exterior door need a secure lock for optimal home security.  When it comes to locks there are many different types that provide different levels of security.  Additionally, there are smart, wifi-enabled doorknobs, deadbolts and door locks so that you can control your door locks remotely.  This can be very handy if you have already left your home but cannot remember if you locked your doors or even if you are just comfortable in bed and want to make sure your doors are locked before you a call it a day but just can’t seem to get up and out of bed.

Today, home technology is all about home automation. Smart doorknobs/locks can be integrated into your home’s security and automation systems for a fully integrated smart home.  Did you leave your home for the day or on a long trip and wonder if you locked the door?  No more worrying about it or sending someone over to check.  All you have to do is check your home’s security system remotely from your phone, tablet or laptop and at the press of one button you can lock all of the doors in your home.  Additionally, do you need to let someone into the house while you are away?  All you have to do is press a button to let them in once they arrive.  And, when they are done you can watch as they leave and then press the button once again to lock the doors behind them.  When it comes to doorknobs today, the possibilities are endless and for that reason, it is always best to have a professional replace or install your doorknobs for the safest, damage-free installation.
