Schlage BE365VPLY505 Plymouth Keypad Deadbolt as reviewed is a great replacement for standard deadbolts. Consumers love the fact that it is digital and all you need to lock and unlock your door is your code. However, you can also lock the door without the code and still have the same protection as when a code was entered because you will be required to key-in your code when you later access your home. So it is convenient in all respect. Unlike models that use motor to retract or extend the bolt many recommend this model because the deadbolt is manual so the battery life lasts longer. So you are guaranteed longer protection per battery installed.
