Best Digital Door Lock Warranties & Support (2024 Comparison)

When investing in a digital door lock system for your hotel, it’s crucial to consider not only the features and price, but also the warranty coverage and customer support provided by the manufacturer. A robust warranty can give you peace of mind that your locks will be repaired or replaced if any defects arise. And reliable customer support ensures you can get help quickly if you encounter any issues with installation, programming, troubleshooting or maintenance.

To help you make an informed decision, we’ll take an in-depth look at the warranty terms and support options from six of the leading digital door lock brands: Aqara, August, Kwikset, Schlage, Ultraloq, and Yale. We’ll also highlight how Be-tech Locks stacks up against the competition, with our industry-leading warranty and dedicated support for hotel clients.

Understanding Digital Door Lock Warranties

A warranty is a guarantee from the manufacturer that a product will perform as expected for a certain period of time. If the product has a defect in materials or workmanship during the warranty period, the manufacturer will repair or replace it free of charge.

Most digital door lock warranties cover the following:

  • Mechanical components: The physical parts of the lock, such as the bolt, lever, and strike plate. These are typically covered for the lifetime of the lock.
  • Electronic components: The “smart” parts of the lock, like the circuit board, motor, and sensors. The warranty period for electronics is usually shorter, ranging from 1-3 years.
  • Finish: The outer coating that protects against wear and corrosion. Finish warranties often last for the lifetime of the lock, but may exclude certain conditions like scratches or use of harsh chemicals.

It’s important to note that warranties usually only apply to defects, not to damage caused by improper installation, misuse, or normal wear and tear. They also typically require the lock to be used in a residential setting, not for commercial purposes.

With that background in mind, let’s see how the top brands compare.
