Keyless entry Door latch

I installed one of these yesterday. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The installation was very quick. My old door latch was tight and sticky and so was this one so a little work with a Dremel and a file fixed the problem. Everything is tight but smooth now.

I had a little hiccup with programing my pin code but that may have been due to my very bad hearing. I couldn't hear any of the special beeps. I can hear the chime it makes on opening and closing though. I finally just went through all of the steps pretending the beeps were there and I got my code in.

It is very nice getting in or locking it without a key. I'm always leaving keys in the house. There is a manual key override so you won't get locked out. So is it more secure, who knows.

This looks like a good design. What trailer was this installed in? My Pacer has a double hull door which makes the installation a little tricky. I love the look of my OG door latch but a safer easier lock like this is an attractive upgrade

Good idea if carrying keys gets in the way

Good idea if carrying keys gets in the way for example if your going swimming and carrying keys in the water. My bigger problem is with door security on my SCAMP. You can lock the door, however one can remove the screws securing the lock assy in about 2 minutes! I thought about replacing the screws with one-way screws but noticed the hinges can be removed in the same amount of time. I guess I have to investigate secure hinge hardware! I like your idea for a keyless lock after the door has been made really secure!!
Have a great Summer!

I didn't get any beeps out of this thing. My hearing is not very good but I can hear the chime it makes when it locks and unlocks.

Programming

To get my pin number in I exactly followed the steps in the video. There were either no beeps or I couldn't hear them.
