Press the top of the pad on Schlage’s Touch Screen Deadbolt and it lights up for easy use in the dark. The motorized bolt automatically locks and unlocks when the code is entered, and can be programmed with up to 30 four-digit codes. Codes can be tailored to specific times of the day or week, or be used for temporary access. A built-in alarm system tells the homeowner when someone goes in or out, tampers with the lock, or tries to break in. Homeowners who subscribe to the company’s Nexia Home Intelligence system can control all lock functions remotely via a smartphone. Cost is around $200.
