So you have decided to buy a digital lock for your HDB flat, condominium, or landed property in order to take the first step in upgrading your home security system. But with so many electronic lock companies available to choose from in Singapore, how do you know which company is best for your needs?
Before you decide on the type or supplier of your smart lock, here are 4 important things to consider about digital lock installations.
1. Is your door suitable for a digital lock installation?
Some electronic locks can be installed directly onto the door of your HDB flat, condominium, or landed property, whereas others may require you to change the entire door or door frame. Your door needs to be thick enough to house the smart lock components, and you should not have any existing trouble opening or closing your door. Kaadas digital smart locks have the following requirements:
- Door thickness: minimum 40mm
- Distance between main door and gate: minimum 80mm
- Distance between handle bar and edge of door: minimum 120mm for both front and back
- (For gate locks) Length and width of installation area: at least 230mm by 100mm
- (For gate locks) Gate thickness: minimum 25mm
Do note that these are general guidelines for digital lock installation, and specific requirements may vary across different locks, doors, and gates. Kaadas offers a free inspection service for customers in Singapore, so you can ensure that your home is suitable for a digital lock installation.

2. How up-to-date is the company’s digital lock technology?
Home security technology is always changing, and it is important to find a supplier who is knowledgeable about the latest advances in electronic smart locks such as fingerprint or facial recognition technology.
Kaadas digital lock technology is developed in-house by our global team of experts and engineers across 5 research facilities worldwide. We prioritise balancing home security with user convenience, leading us to develop features such as power outage failsafes, multiple access mode capabilities, and a Defense Mode that will trigger an alarm if intruders try to exit your home via the front door after a break-in. Our locks also come with one-step unlocking capabilities, allowing you to unlock any door in less than a second for enhanced convenience and ease.
3. What types of locks or access modes do they provide?
There are many types of digital smart locks available such as rim locks, mortise locks, and deadbolt locks. Each type of lock may mean different installation requirements, and may even incur additional costs such as changing the door or gate entirely. Make sure to find an electronic lock supplier that is transparent with you about any additional costs, and who is able to recommend the right type of lock to suit your home.
On top of that, you should also consider what access modes you will want for your digital lock. This may include:
- Facial recognition
- Fingerprint recognition
- PIN code
- RFID card
- Remote control
- Mechanical keys
Each access mode has its own pros and cons, and a good supplier will be able to walk you through the ways each access mode can suit your household. For example, fingerprint recognition may be suitable if you have family members who are prone to losing or forgetting their keys.
Kaadas offers a variety of lock types and designs suitable for HDB flat, condominium, and landed properties in Singapore. Our smart locks come in all of the access modes above, including the cutting-edge Kaadas x Lamborghini (The Legend) 3D Face Recognition that has high-tech facial recognition capabilities. Our product specialists and technicians will work with you throughout inspection, delivery, and installation to ensure there is minimal disruption as possible.
4. Does the company provide digital lock installation services?
No matter how skilled you are at DIY, home security is one area where you do not want to take any chances. Getting a professional installation done for your electronic smart lock is always best, as the contractor or consultant will be able to ensure the digital lock is properly installed and to avoid incurring more cost such as a damaged door..
