How can a keyless entry lock help me if I have a disability?

Getting in the door is easier if you do not have to fumble with keys due to your disability. Today, there are many alternatives. You can go hi-tech and punch a code into a keypad or use a one-button remote control, similar to the one that opens newer cars. Some can even open the door for you. Ask a locksmith, your security system company, or a home improvement store about the many options available. Also, you can search “keyless locks” on the web.
If the old-fashioned way is good enough for you, there are key turners with built-up handles that give you greater leverage and make turning keys easier.
