In my 30+ year career in law enforcement I had only 1 case where a building was burglarized by picking a lock. He was a state government employee who picked a lock on a state building and stole a bunch of plumbing supplies. He was employed as a locksmith. Forced entry is most common.Can't imagine this lock being worth anything if it has a standard pickable key access.
I use Medeco locks, almost unpickable, and cannot be duplicated except where you bought it (with strict controls). Ridges are cut at angles. Failing to pick my locks might encourage intruders to seek a softer target. I also put them in because a good friend of mine was very, very good at picking locks. Engineer. Sadly, he has passed, far too early.
From their site:
• Every 13 seconds a home is burglarized;
• In more than 50 percent of all residential burglaries, entry is gained through a door;
• More than 85 percent of break-ins are committed by non-professional burglars, who are usually desperate and dangerous individuals;
• Fifty percent of all burglaries occur during the day.
I agree with ramy. I don't want my door locks to be hacked by a computer hacker, or hacked with wireless stuff either.Sorry I have not, but for me I do not want any lock that has a way to be hacked by a computer or something that has wireless stuff. Seems to me it would be easier to figure out and hack than a good regular lock. Maybe I am wrong but it just seems that way to me.
ScottI have electronic locks on my house and would upgrade to these locks if the service wasnt $12.99 a month service fee.
If it was $5 a month I would consider it.
ur spellin makin this look sooooo funnnnnyoooook this hack crap is nonesense, If your soo scrared of bein hacked you would make sure ur not and fix the issue. Also if someone saw this lock on ur house there is a 50 50 chance it is the schlage ilink lock. It looks just like the lock that is without the ilink. Plus if you have this why would you not have an alarm? If your soo worried about bein robbed buy an alarm system and video cameras. I have cameras on my place and alarm. I have fail safe features too on all my equipment. I am also thinkin of building a PANIC ROOM too. I really enjoy this lock lot for extra things it can do. I can leave the house without keys and get back in with no keys I get a text everytime someone is at the door in and out, also if someone trys to HACK ur system it locks the feature an u can only get into the house with a key & it resets it self AFTER about 5min you can try ur code again. BUT 5min for a guy to sit and keep tryin to hack ur lock would look too suspicous soo no person wants to sit and keep tryin to hack ur lock. most thieves want a quick in and out type so they will break somethin instead of sittin tryin to figure out how to hack ur lock.
