What makes smartkey better?

  1. Drill Resistance

    The lock cylinder uses two steel balls inserted into the front of the key face to resist attack from drilling.

  2. ANSI Grading

    SmartKey is available in an ANSI Grade 1 deadbolt - certified the highest level of residential security.

  3. BumpGuard™

    Patented side locking bar technology offers improved protection against lock bumping, an attack technique used to defeat conventional pin tumbler locks.

  4. Superior Pick-Resistance

    SmartKey locks have passed the most stringent lock-picking standard, UL 437, par. 11.6.
