Access control locks are mainly designed to be much more sophisticated when it comes to locking and unlocking the door. The locks are used to prevent unauthorized access to both commercial and residential facilities. The locks can easily be accessed, i.e. opened and closed via fingerprint, entering a code, or mobile technology. Some older ones also use a magnetic stripe card and physical keys.
In this blog, we’ll go over the three types of access control systems available. We’ll talk about the single door system, the traditional wired access system and the standalone system.
It is important to highlight that you can’t install access control locks as a DIY project; these often require Expert Locksmiths like us to ensure they are securely installed.
Single Door Access Control Locks
The Single Door Access Control Lock is a single door access system that’s installed on the door. However, it can be set up also on two doors if needed. The installation will require hardwiring or plugging in the system to a power outlet nearby. The entry system mainly uses devices like an ID badge, making them perfect for warehouses and various small businesses.
