Will Lockitron work with my door?

Every lock is different. The best way to check if Lockitron Bolt will work with your door is by printing out our compatibility template and aligning it with your door lock. While Lockitron Bolt is designed to work as a replacement for most common keyed deadbolts, this will help check for clearance from doorknobs, windows, and other things that could get in the way. You can also view our compatibility template for the discontinued crowdfunded Lockitron.

We also recommend taking a few pictures detailing the exterior, interior and side of your current door lock and sending them to  install@lockitron.com so that we can give more detailed advice for your specific lock. (Alternatively, iOS and Android users can open the Lockitron app and click the “Check Compatibility” button at the bottom of the login screen)

If you are unsure whether Lockitron will work with your door, then don’t hesitate to send a couple photos to  install@lockitron.com and we will be more than happy to help out.

See our comparison page on Lockitron Bolt and the discontinued crowdfunded Lockitron for information on their dimensions.

Below is a list of several different types of door locks and their compatibility. These are provided for reference only and do not necessarily indicate compatibility of individual locks.


Cylindrical

Cylindrical / Through-hole Deadbolt

Lockitron is compatible with most through-hole / cylindrical deadbolts.
If you have a decorative backplate ("escutcheon") or interconnected handle and deadbolt, you will need to replace the interconnected lock with an independent handle. Make sure to use the printable template to verify spacing. 
Lockitron Bolt will not work as a replacement for a keyless deadbolt (locks that only have a thumbturn on the interior).   

Not sure whether or not your deadbolt is compatible? Send us a photo at  install@lockitron.com.

Mortise

Currently we do not offer a Lockitron solution mortise locks, unless they have an electrified strike or are themselves electrified in which case the Lockitron Access solution is available.

A second option is to drill the door for a secondary lock, in which case you can install a Lockitron Bolt unit.

Rimdeadlock

Rim deadlock / Rim deadbolt

Currently we do not offer a Lockitron solution for rim deadbolts, unless they have an electrified strike in which case a Lockitron Access solution is available.

A second option is to drill the door for a secondary lock, in which case you can install a Lockitron and deadbolt.

Buzzer_line

Buzzer

The Lockitron Access can be wired into most standard apartment buzzers or access control systems and offers the same features found in the Lockitron. 

Lockitron Access maintains your current buzzer or access control system, and will send an multi-second unlock command to your buzzer when triggered. 

Please sign up for more information about Lockitron Access or reach out at  sales@lockitron.com if you are interested in the Lockitron Access system.
