Nearly one quarter of Americans spend three or more minutes looking for those elusive keys every day – that’s over 18 hours a year! So, it’s not surprising that 62 percent believe that eventually they will be living in a keyless society and that the younger generation, aged 18 to 34 are more likely to hold this view. These are just some of the interesting findings from research commissioned by Schlage®, a brand of Allegion plc, which is a company focused on latest electronic lock innovation.

The survey by Schlage, conducted online by Harris Poll, surveyed 2,000 U.S. adults and found that a majority of Americans (65 percent) would consider a keyless electronic lock if they could more easily access their home without compromising security, while over half (53 percent) believe having a keyless lock on their door would save them time…as two-thirds admit they’ve been locked out of their home because they’ve misplaced, lost or forgotten their keys!
