You've just left your house and closed the door behind you while struggling to remember what you forgot. Your keys. With a biometric door lock, that's not a problem, just press your finger to the screen, type in a code, and you're back in. When in the market for one of these handy gadgets, there are a few things you want to look for. If it will be for outdoor use, it needs to be weatherproof and lighted. Either a backup battery or a manual override is essential because at some point a battery-powered lock will fail – hardwired models also need a backup plan. Memory for additional scans and key codes is nice, as is an auto-lock feature and a built-in alarm.
