Best security is a steel door frame but they don't look good in residential applications and are expensive. If you want to make entry a little more difficult, replace your hinge and strike plate screws with 3 inch screws so they screw into the 2x4 or 2x6 framed opening. That makes kicking a lot more difficult.
For convenience, yeah, keyless entry is pretty nice.
I have a complete steel security "storm" door, completely steel front security door behind that, each mounted on a complete steel frame. It was totally custom and just about drained our "update the new home" budget, but
was completely worth it as we sleep a little easier now.
Not in a "bad" neighborhood but crime is EVERY WHERE!
BTW it looks just as good as any other door...depending on what your budget is. OP, I would never do electric entrance. Just not for me.
You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
