danepak: The only two offered are these two models.
Which one would you recommend?
Yale (Assa Abloy) or Schlage (Allegion)?
Builder says Yale is the most popular choice.


 


Choose the cheapest or the one with a decent 2nd hand value and be prepared to change it later.


Same price for both. Assa Abloy with 1 years warranty, where Allegion comes with 2 years.

The Assa Abloy is more water resistant than waterproof.
Allegion is water proof – but is only available in 70mm backset.

I would choose the Allegion, based on warranty, but otherwise got no idea what they mean (70mm backset)

They are both good brands. 
We have a Schlage in our house in Auckland and Yale in our house in Wellington.

The Schlage has an IP rating and is more weather resistant. The Yale does not and is not recommended for doors bring exposed to weather etc. 
They are both good brands and locks.

So I'm being told that the Yale (Assa Abloy) door lock comes with a 12 months warranty.

 

 

 

But what's the difference between the two paragraph's beneath, where one mentions 12 months, another one 10 years. If an electrical component aren't working (12 months warranty), isn't this the same as being defective (10 years warranty)?

 

 

 

Yale Warranty

 

ASSA ABLOY New Zealand Ltd (“ASSA ABLOY”) guarantees its Yale products against defects in workmanship and materials.

 

 

If within 10 years of purchase a product is found to be defective. ASSA ABLOY will supply the same or equivalent product free of charge.

 

All electrical and electronic components used in ASSA ABLOY’s range of products excluding batteries are guaranteed for a period of 12 months from the date of proof of purchase, unless stated otherwise.

The Yale 3109 is made up of a traditional mortice lock and electronic components which drive the lock for open and close. This is effectively saying that warrenty for the electronic components which drive the lock is 12 months and the actual lock itself is up to 10 years.
The lock can be driven manually but in reality - if the lock does die - one would probably replace it entirely.

Thanks, so would you say that this is a 10 year warranty?

What points me towards the Yale is:
- It mentions both 12 months and 10 years, where the other option (Allegion) only mentions 2 years.
- It has Bluetooth (yes, I know, not as smart as WiFi, but still handy that door can open automatically, when I want to get in and have shopping bags in my hands. Also still being able to programme from phone and open/lock, if I’m near enough to the door (living room or kitchen for example).
Also, it’s nearly $100 more than the Allegion, if purchased online.
