Keypads come in many shapes and sizes, but all have the same function: to restrict access to only those who have a personal identification number (PIN) to unlock the door. Some can only use one number, others can have hundreds programmed into them. Still others require the presence of a secondary ID such as a swiped card or a device that it can read. Some even require a physical key as well as the PIN.
The security of any keypad-based lock is to keep the PIN code secure. Many small complexes and single-occupant buildings for businesses or residence will have a simple keypad lock. Some larger buildings with more complex security needs will have these installed on specific entry ways or access points as additional security over and above biometric or other identification systems.

For the more common everyday user, keypads have several advantages over magnetic or proximity card readers. First and foremost, there is nothing to lose. So if your home or apartment is to be secured, this solution means you no longer have to remember your keys or even where they are.
A business with just a few employees may find it easier and no one needs to remember their magnetic card or key fob. These are also a common solution to offices which need to restrict access only to specific rooms or closets, such as a file room, utility closet, or secured elevator.
Finally, the installation and maintenance is often more affordable up-front than the more complex systems. There are no cards, keys, or other devices to maintain, update, or buy. Codes are easily changed whenever it is needed and usually this requires no service call or technician to do.
