An electric lock is simply, as it sounds, a lock powered by an electric current. It uses magnets, solenoids, or motors to activate the lock by either supplying or removing power. There are many benefits to using electric locks, and in this ever-increasingly digital world, it’s not surprising that the electronic lock is so popular. They are simple to use and provide an increased level of security and control with fail safe and fail secure options.
Are keys always a problem?
Do you want to save money and prevent cases of lost or stolen keys within your building? A keyless door lock could be the solution. Keyless door locks via an adjoining access control system can unlock doors via a key card, pin entry, fob, phone access and more. These are also ideal for when access is given on a larger scale, such as schools, restaurants or retail. It streamlines entry by allowing hundreds of people to be given access (or it to be taken away) via the touch of a button. The ACT 5e digital keypad is ideal for a medium application, such as a block of flats, with 10 user codes available.
Do you have an ever-changing workforce?
For businesses, large flats and applications that require extra security, it’s essential to have an access control system that can meet those expectations. Biometric door locks such as the BURG-WÄCHTER TSE Set 5022 Fingerscan door lock enables extra secure entry via fingerprint and works via the TSE software for administrating users.
Always buying replacement keys?
Either entering a pin code or swiping a key access card both mean there’s no mechanism or keys to become worn out, bent or broken. Key access cards are much easier to replace, re-calibrate for new users and to remove from a system so that they can’t be stolen and used for entry.
Want to grant access remotely?
Open your front door remotely with an electric lock and intercom system. It offers both security and flexibility, letting you control access to your home, building or office with your phone. Video entry intercom systems such as the Comelit Visto WiFi video doorbell intercom allows users to see the visitor prior to granting access, and can unlock the door via their smartphone!
