Electric door locks are locks that operate by an electric current. This provides a measure of additional security beyond what traditional lock and key doors achieve. The need for a physical key is redundant, and the security level of an electronic door lock can be further reinforced by an access control system.
An access control system is one of the biggest benefits of electric door locks. Door access control means that electric locks can only be opened by pre-determined authentication. For businesses, this is an ideal solution, particularly for allowing access for non-regular staff members, such as cleaners and maintenance workers. For instance, if a digital keypad is used, each person can have their own access code to enter the building after-hours, and company owners are able to change the codes later to ensure security.
There are several access control systems available to monitor and manage access:
Ideal for companies big and small, entry codes can be set-up and distributed to staff only to prevent access from members outside of the organisation.
Door release buttons
Access control accessories such as ‘Press to Exit’ door release buttons can be installed on the inside of the building, for easy building evacuation in the event of an emergency.
Key fob door access
One of the biggest benefits of this means of access is that should a person’s access need to be revoked, fobs can be reprogrammed without the necessity to uninstall the electric door lock.
For an all-in-one access control system, we recommend one of our access controls kits. Each kit has been compiled to make electric door lock installation easier, and each is designed with both large offices and flats in mind.
