Rim Digital Locks without Handle

Rim digital locks has small footprint and hence a lower price. They are installed without replacing existing door lock-set and hence scuffs are localised to door's handle and not the digital lock - great! Models come with either pin/fingerprint or pin/card access. Gateman (#1 digital lock manufacturer in Korea) tops in looks with clean lines, solid build quality and attention to details and security features. Samsung has entry level pin/card models.
