Entry door

Two questions:

What's everyone doing for a night shade on the entry door. Seems strange every window including the windshield has a shade except this one. Click image for larger version

Was thinking about making a similar shade as the windshield with Velcro so it can be removed during the day.

Is it just the single small deadbolt that keeps this door secure? When it is locked I can still pull the handle and open the door a crack. Our rental fourwinds had two locks, one deadbolt and one for the handle. Or does the digital keypad lock the handle?

Thanks!

I have a cafe curtain clothespinned to the decorative header. Not the greatest solution but keeps the morning light out for my deep sleeping wife.

I bought blackout material and cut it to size. Bought two 3m command hooks in bronze and put them above the door. On amazon found two cut in grommets for the material. I keep the new shade rolled up behind the sofa, easy to put up and take down and very light weight.

Everything used to be obscure glass in the doors, so it never needed anything. At some point (I think when everything went frameless), they went to tinted. We are going to start putting a 22x48 roller shade over the door. You could probably order one through dealer parts. I hope to have it stocked so dealers can order it online and get it quickly. Shade, and two installation clips. I don't know pricing, but I asked parts to stock 10 or so at all times.

I assume the shade will be mounted above the door since it couldn't be mounted to the door due to the screen?

Also, has anyone changed out their entry door lock? The touch pad it comes with doesn't feel secure at all to me. The only lock is the deadbolt? Is that right?

The rental I used before had a deadbolt and locked the handle. I found one online that is about 1/2 the price of the factory one but looks more secure.

Is there something I am missing? Seems odd.

I would like to upgrade as well. Mine also allows you to open the handle and move the door a little bit. Probably could put a screw driver in and pop the door open real easy

The locked handle is not as safe as you think. Master keys exist like water. Deadbolt is the safest bet.
