Hello I have a teardown/remodel with walls open. The front entrance has a specialty door with sidelights and a high- end lockset from EMTEK that is mortised. The rest of the entrances ( patio, mudroom) are specialty Anderson doors with multipoint locksets. On my other homes I have used zwave deadbolts that have worked well. With this new home I am struggling to find an easy solution.
For the Emtek mortised lock front door I have read people using electronic door strikes. This gets complicated because the door frame is solid wood and a 2" rail that seperates the door from the sidelights. I don’t see an easy way to drill this out and insert cable to run to the door strike. Another option I have seen is magnetic door locks. I would prefer not to have a big metal back below all the moulding. What solutions are others using?
For the multipoint patio locks. I have only seen a yale smart living locksets out of europe. I dont know if these would work in the US. Has anyone seen solution for multipoint door locks in the USA?
Any help,suggestions or experiences would be greatly appreciated .
