Keying your locks alike can save you both time and energy. Since all of the locks will be the same, you won’t have to spend the time searching for the right key. Keying all of your locks alike is also a safe choice. If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation and need to get into your house quickly, you’ll know you have the right key the first time.
Having two different locks is preferable when you want to allow access to your house to certain individuals, but only when you choose. For example, each exterior door will be outfitted with two locks. One lock’s key will be given to an individual so that they can get in. At times when you don’t want to allow them—or anyone else with a copy—access, you can simply lock the second one, and they won’t be able to gain entry. A downside of having different keys is that if you lose one key, you might only have one backup key if you are lucky.
