Digital locks are door or gate locks than can be opened with a keypad PIN code instead of a key. Many modern digital locks can also be opened with a card, fob and some even with your mobile phone.
Why choose a digital lock?
There are a few reasons why you may want to change or upgrade to a hassle free digital lock including:
✔ you don’t want to carry a key
✔ tired of losing your keys – you lose or misplace your keys a lot
✔ convenience and ease of sharing the code with other occupants, trades, service people and/or family members without having to provide a physical key
✔ issuing keys may not be practical or economical for businesses or large organisations if hundreds of keys need to be produced. A digital lock allows you to circulate code(s) easily.
What are the options?
There are multiple digital lock options, so think about what you want the lock to do and the features you need and we’ll suggest the best solution to meet your requirements.
Mechanical Digital Locks
uses no batteries and can be opened by a PIN code only.
Electronic Digital Locks
can be battery powered and most have more features like card or fob access and some offer additional features like bluetooth and wifi connections and can be referred to as smart locks. Benefits can include the ability to open the lock remotely while offsite or set a time and date function to allow a PIN code to only be active for a period of time which is great for Airbnb situations.
Hard Wired Digital Locks
recommended for commercial or high use doors, a hard wired solution like an electric strike or maglock with keypad or fob reader is the best option. These types of systems handle high use with more reliability. Systems used and recommended include Rosslare, Neptune, FSH, Padde and Salto.

Some words from our customers…..
I used Stewart Locksmiths to open my front door when I was locked out. Ben arrived 25minutes later, opened my door and was great. Very professional and price wasn’t bad either

Cleaned up afterwards
I needed my locks changed the same day and while they were busy, they went out of their way to accommodate me into their schedule. They changed my door locks and even cleaned up afterwards.

My warehouse had a lock that was sticking and Stewart Locksmiths did a great job fixing it! The locksmith arrived on time, was professional, and finished the job in less than 30 minutes. Our door is working perfectly!

The locksmith was great
I had a problem with my front door lock for months that was so annoying, you had to wiggle the key for it to open. Stewart Locksmiths came out when convenient for me and fixed it!
