Backyard door locks
« on: August 29, 2017, 05:41:36 am »
Hi all

I have 3 backyard doors that has similar locks. They are operated simply by turning the knop 90 decrees to unlock and 90 decrees back to lock. (see the attacked photo)

Are the available a lock that can be installed on top of excisting mechanism? I would also like to keep the manual knop available so i can continue to lock the door manually.

I have found DANA lock that might do the work . https://danalock.com/index.html

Any other possibilities?

I think there is one called August now that looks like danalock. Danalock was my first smart lock but they kept delaying the keypad and the gears are made of plastic and stripped within 6 months.
