Digital door locks provide an affordable and easy security solution in places where the allocation of keys or cards is unpractical due to a number of people going in and out of the building on a daily basis. Instead, all that is needed in order to gain access is a code that authorised staff use in order to gain entry.
A digital door lock can vary greatly in price from standard budget internal digital door locks to heavy duty touchlocks. Some can be operated manually without any power supply, whilst some are battery operated, whilst those linked up to an electronic access control system require a full power supply.
Digital door locks can be useful in a number of settings, especially where certain areas of a building require more protection and access needs to be restricted only to authorised staff. There are a variety of models to meet all needs from securing a small stationery cupboard to a large-scale hospital building.
The advantages are that they’re affordable and offer quick and easy installation and they do not require any additional hardware. If security is compromised they are quick and easy to reprogramme. Some models enable you to provide free passage at certain times and code only access out of hours.
