The levered door handle helps with ease of access, but the sunken concrete is an issue that may have been avoided by waiting a little longer for the ground to settle before pouring.
The plate covering the front door threshhold makes access easier, but is not ideal as the screws to hold the plate down loosen over time, and there is still a lip to get over.
The driveway is sloped to the garage, but improperly poured concrete has sunk, making wheelchai access from the left hand side of the door difficult.
This coded keypad, set at a height that works for the homeowner can give easy access to an alternate entrance. Much easier than fiddling with keys!
