Five of the best door locks for your Melbourne home

Door locks influence not only the safety characteristics but also the convenience of allowing door access. But while it’s nearly impossible to stop someone who is determined to break into your house, a good door lock can go a long way to keeping would-be robbers out of your home. Here are some of the great locks which will go a long way in securing your Melbourne home:


Deadbolt locks provide the most security on residential doors. A single cylinder deadbolt is functioned with a key from the outside and with a turn button on the inside, and a double-cylinder is operated with a key on both the inside and outside. Double cylinder deadbolts can pose a risk during an emergency if the key is lost or not available.

Entry Locksets/Handle sets

Locksets and handle sets are medium-security entrance door locks which are frequently joined with a deadbolt. They have dual doorknobs that can be locked from the inside and the outside. One doorknob locks from the inside by turning a small button, while a key must open the outside. A handle set highlights a decorative door handle on the exterior.


For advanced home security and convenience, keyless locks can be used to change any standard deadbolts on outside doors. An anti-theft code feature ensures the similar code is never used twice, and certain models sound an alarm after the wrong code is entered more than three times. Also, some systems are compatible with select garage door openers or home security systems.

Mortise locks

Mortise locks are used on many types of residential doors, as well as storm doors and stress convenience over security. The mortise lock contains a flat, rectangular case that fits into a recess in the door from its edge and contains two faceplates with knobs. The latch functions from also side except when the outside knob is locked and the deadbolt operates by a turn of the inside knob.

Smart locks

Smart locks that replace your front door deadbolt do much more than lock and unlock your door without a key. Many smart locks let you receive alerts and track who’s entering; limited access digital “keys” to guests, children, trusted service workers when you’re not home and remotely lock and unlock when you’re away from home.

For most of us, security is a top priority when selecting door locks for our homes, followed by cost, style and finish. Focus on the safety and securing of your home first before making a conclusion on which lock is best for you.
