I am in dilemma related to the main entrance door of my would be home. We have a 1200mm door and we want to get a door pull handle (600mm long) along with a Samsung smart lock
Does anyone have this combo installed on their main doors. Not sure if both can go well with each other ?
Do yourself a scaled sketch on paper to see how it all looks.
I think it will look good of centred together as I drew
entrance door handle question

POLL: Do you use smart technology in your home?
Before you install check with your insurers to ensure you will still be covered in case of burglary. I only say this because we we’re thinking to get smart entry on our new door, we have police neighbours who explained that smart doors were not really all that errr smart. This was a while ago and technology is always changing- just thought I would mention.
Oh I just realised the lock has a handle. Can you get a digital lock without handle that is all black
Sorry, what is your dilemma?
@Kate - Thanks for the drawing. Much appreciated. Yes this digital lock has a small push handle. We quite like the features that this lock offers.
@dreamer - The dilemma is whether both will complement each other on the door or do I have to let go the handle.
I think the photos that @Kate posted show that they will look good together. Very neat clean lines.
My question would be regarding the ease of use of the lock pull. Is it user friendly for people who may be struggling with arthritis or a hand injury. I would put a large handle on the inside and outside, therefore not relying on lock pull to open and close door. Taking into account the weight of a 1200mm solid wood door.
Just looking at the measurements of the lock and of your handle. The lock is 392mm long and the proposed handle is 600mm long. This would only be a 100mm either end difference, so it will not look like the photo or sketch that is posted, it would look more like two black items the same size. Can you find a longer handle?
This is a photo from the posted lock details, it is rather bulky.
@dreamer - Yes it is, Like in the photo you have shared, I think with doors that have any glass near to the lock, It will be a bit difficult to accommodate both the lock and the handle
This is just a photo from the locks advertisement. The glass is just in that photo, not a choice I would make.
@dreamer - very insightful. Thank you. Yes, we will be going with a taller handle as our door is 2400mm high.
