If you want to fit an electric lock into a composite door or a UPVC plastic door and where you want to press a fob to open the door remotely this solution may work in your application.
We need to use a 2 amp power supply for this system because the Winkhaus Electric Multipoint door lock can take a lot of power if the lock has to work against weather seals in the door.
We are using a Sentry fob and receiver kit that will allow up to 50/60 meters away a simple press of the button the door will unlock.
We have used a Timer relay also, this timer relay allows you to control the opening time that the lock stays open until it re-engages. it is common that this time should be around 5 seconds but the time circuit does allow flexibility in this time line.
Don't forget that the power supply will need to be connected to the mains. seek expert advise if needed.
