I have an antique style door lock that a thumb lock on the inside.
Similar to this:
Does anyone know of a smart lock option that fits over the thumb turn? All our external locks are keyed the same so I don’t really want to change the cylinder.
You can get a new cylinder to match your existing key. Any specialist service can do that.
I’m looking for options that dont involve that, if they even exist.
It works and looks like a euro cylinder, but it isn’t actually one. It’s an antique style lock.
Plan b is fit a deadbolt and an August (or similar)
Well, if the lock and the key(hole) looks like the picture above, it should be no problem at all to get a cylinder that works on your current key. I would be cheaper as well as oppose to your plan ‘B’.
I clarified my original post. There’s no actual cylinder in the lock. The picture is to illustrate the thumb turn specifically.
