So, what is true deadbolting and why is it important?
Not every deadbolt is created equal, and a true deadbolt requires the following characteristics;
The second point is what separates the wheat from the chaff, as this does not apply to some deadbolt products in the market. These products do not physically latch the deadbolt, resulting in the ability to force the bolt back into the lock. Because of the lack of true deadbolting, doors with these products installed can be forced open when they are meant to be locked and secured.
All the above requirements are true for electronic locking as well, except instead of a deadbolt being operated by a key or thumb-turn, it is operated electronically by a control signal to operate a motor or solenoid. Without the ability to latch the deadbolt, even these high-tech locks can fall prey to the security vulnerabilities described.
