Characteristics of a working door.

A properly functioning door is one that:

  • has a latch that engages properly and holds the door in a single closed position
  • has a deadbolt you can extend and retract without having to lift, pull, or push the door

There are other attributes, but for our purposes, these are the important ones.

Level locks (any smart lock, actually) complement a working door; they cannot fix a door that isn’t working properly.

Keep in mind that temperature, age, humidity, earthquakes, etc., affect your door, so you should check your door’s function at least once a year, or as often as your home maintenance schedule calls for.
