Digital Door Locks
Securing your doors with digital locks and combination locks has been
popular for years now, but as times are changing there are more and
more solutions entering the market. But which one is right for you?Digital keypads
come in various shapes and sizes, and come as stand-alone units that work on their own - ideal for home installations
- and also come as in form of part of a complete design and build solution which gives massive scope for adding staff access to multiple doors - perfect for businesses
. But the principle is the same, allowing you to gain entry by entering a PIN code
into the keypad to gain access, rather than having to carry keys around with you, or share keys which can be copied etc.
In addition to the digital range, we also have a fantastic array of mechanical combination locks, which work in the same way as the stand-alone digital keypads, except they rely on physical mechanisms rather than digital data, so do not require power / batteries to operate, and come in so many different styles, with different functionalities. Again though, the principle function is the same - you don't need keys, and you can change codes whenever you like if you feel the code has been compromised or you wish to revoke access from someone who has previously been given the code to enter.
Combination code access has become one of the most popular methods of basic access control. It can be achieved on a budget, but can also be suited to high traffic commercial use on the more high end models. The choice depends entirely on what you need, and what level of use (or 'abuse') you anticipate the lock to receive.
