Emtek has also been on the leading edge of modern technology for door locks. Example is the EMTouch™, an electronic lock that allows homeowners to unlock their door through the use of a programmed code, rather than the traditional key. Electronic locks are increasing in popularity by people tired of rummaging in purses and pockets to find keys and even battling the occasional lockout. The EMtouch electronic lock interface offers a sleek touchscreen that is back-lit, making it highly visible at night. This high-tech screen also holds up to the wear and tear of everyday use. The screen is easy to clean, making it easy to wipe off any fingerprints and keep security at a maximum by removing evidence of which numbers are being pushed; a quick wipe and it’s done. The company’s website, offers the EMTouch™ electronic lock in a deadbolt or entry set with a variety of finishes.

About Emtek
Emtek® is dedicated to bringing interesting, well made hardware back into American homes. Until about 1930 there was a proud history of hardware in America. Hundreds of small factories made an enormous variety of creatively designed products. Craftsmen from many disciplines devoted their energies to making locks that provided both function and beauty.

Unfortunately, during the depression many of these factories failed, and then during WWII brass became scarce and lock designs were reduced to the bare essentials. In more recent years the emphasis on cheap, high volume building products has discouraged manufacturers from re-introducing well made hardware. But now these ideas are changing, Americans are re-discovering the satisfaction that comes from owning well designed products. Emtek® mission is to make it possible for home owners to apply these higher expectations to door locks. We are striving to provide a broad, interesting range of products that consumers can use as elements of decor, not just as a way to latch a door
