Electronic door locks are a way to replace keys or to add additional automation features, like remote locking or unlocking. Although most commonly found on cars, many cutting-edge security providers are offering electronic door locks for homes and businesses.
In any type of door lock, a latch or bolt is made to cross the opening between the side of the door and the doorframe, preventing access. This can be a “spring bolt,” which is held in place by springs and allows the door to close (but not reopen) when locked, or the more secure “dead bolt,” which stays in place until manually unlocked. In both cases, locking and unlocking is achieved by rotating the visible element (a knob or a key in a lock cylinder) to move the bolt or latch.
· Pick-proof: Because there is no place for a key with these locks, the prevent break-ins because burglars are unable to pick or ‘bump’ the lock. Criminal’s methods of breaking and entering are improving and the majority of criminals can pick an ordinary key lock.
· No More Keys: You won’t have to carry around a large set of keys and they will be less likely to be lost or stolen. Also, if you are a landlord, you don’t have to give residents keys or replace them if they lose them.
· Control: In a company building, you can control and restrict who goes into what part of the building. Also residents and landlords of apartments and flat, can control who can enter their room with one PIN code and it reduces the risk of anything getting stolen.
· Aesthetically Pleasing: Door locks can come in a range of stylish colors that look smart and professional. At The Workplace Depot, we sell mechanical digital door locks in a choice of 3 colors, brass, chrome and satin chrome.
Perfect for the elderly or disabled: The extra investment into a door lock could bring massive advantages to those who are unable to get to the door quickly and/or who struggle with keys.
