Greetings, oh wise and benevolent experts –
We’re a small apartment building with 4 units. The building’s always had a keyed deadbolt lever handle at the entrance that’s prevented us from having to-door deliveries.
Well, it’s Covid-19 Times and myself and some neighbouring units will be working from home until at least the fall and will need deliveries from work (and food-take out – I can’t stand my own cooking anymore… ).
Building owner is happy to change the lock since I’ll be paying for it but I’m getting confused by the choices and he’d like me to provide him the lock brand/model choices before the next step.
lock with keys and keypad
automatically locks when we leave the building
ability to either have one-time-use guest codes generated or is easy to generate a guest code
Since I’ll be the primary using of the guest codes, I don’t mind changing it bi-weekly/monthly from my desktop or cellphone and then just posting the code in our laundry room if the neighbours even need it.
We don’t have a monitored security system in the building or can dedicate wifi for the lock. I can use my cellphone’s bluetooth or hotspot if I’m near the lock but that’s about it.
Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.
