So you’ve decided to upgrade your home security system to a brand-new electronic or digital lock: congratulations! Many homeowners in Singapore – whether they live in a HDB flat, condominium, or landed property – now enjoy various digital lock benefits such as tamper-proof security and convenient hands-free access.
That being said, there are some things you can do to prepare yourself for the digital lock installation process to make it easier for everyone involved. Here’s what you need to know:
1. Check if your home is suitable for digital lock installation
First things first, you should check if your door or gate meets the minimum requirements for digital lock installation. Our useful digital lock installation guide includes key points to take note of including:
- Required door thickness
- Required distance between handle bar to the edge of your door
- Minimum gate thickness
- Minimum flat surface area for installation
2. Refresh your door ahead of time
Once your digital lock has been properly installed, it will be an inconvenient hassle to replace, refresh, or refurbish your main door. If you wish to make any changes to your main door, we recommend doing so before the digital lock delivery and installation team arrives.
- If you are painting a new coat of paint on your main door, we recommend leaving it to dry for 2 days minimum
- If you are laminating your door, it should be completed before installing your digital lock to avoid further charges or needing to remove and reinstall your lock
- If you are replacing your entire door or gate, do take note of the delivery dates and times to ensure it does not clash with your digital lock installation appointment
3. Save your digital lock installation for the end of your renovation
Singaporean homeowners might think it’s best to change their home lock at the start of their renovation journey so that the front door can look amazing from the jump. However, this is actually the opposite of what you should be doing if you want to keep your digital lock looking as flawless as the day it was installed.
By installing your digital lock early, you risk denting, scratching, hitting, or even damaging your lock while renovation is ongoing. Because contractors, vendors, and movers will be bringing heavy materials or furniture in and out of your HDB flat, condominium, or landed property throughout the process, it’s very possible that your digital lock will get damaged in the process.
Kaadas allows you to arrange your own date and time for delivery and installation of your digital lock purchase, and we will always do our best to accommodate your preferred timing. If you need to change your appointment details due to unforeseen circumstances, simply get in touch and let us know.
4. Be present during installation
Some homeowners might find it more convenient to let another household member or helper be present to supervise the digital lock delivery and installation process. However if you are going to be the main person controlling the access modes of the lock, it is crucial for you to be physically present.
Our Kaadas installers will perform a walkthrough of how to use your locks and will even help you and your family members register the digital lock access functions you wish to have.
As we offer a range of access functions including cutting-edge facial recognition door lock technology, it is important to properly understand how to use your lock to get in or out of your home in Singapore. This will ensure total security when adding or removing PIN codes, RFID cards, or profiles to your lock’s system and interface.
