Digital locks are exceptionally reliable and have obvious advantages, but they are not without disadvantages also. By far the greatest advantage of a digital lock is that it eliminates the necessity of a conventional key, and along with it, the need to have multiple keys cut. This in turn means there is no risk of losing or forgetting your keys. A digital lock is additionally advantageous as you need only provide someone with the pin in order for them to enter your home. Whilst a digital lock has many conveniences, the possibility of forgetting the pin and locking yourself out is still a risk. Ultimately, choosing a digital lock is a matter of preference.
