What does a digital door lock do ?
A digital door lock is a mechanical locking device which incorporates a keypad. Once the user inputs the correct code acces will be granted through the door.
Choosing the correct digital lock?
High Traffic: Ensure for 'high traffic' entry points (such as office kitchens, main entry) a digital code lock is chosen which has been designed with a high usage in mind and can withstand the constant wear. The cost of the lock will normally reflect how much wear it can take as the price increases.
Hold Back Functions: In busy offices some secure areas will need to be left 'unsecure' during the day (such as the stationary cupboard). This allows for everyone to access the room without constantly inputting the code but at night or when their are customers in the building the hold back is released and the door locks normally.
The hold back feature on a mechanical code lock allows the 'latch' to be held back in the open position so that the door isn't locked when it closes. Simply releasing the hold back switches the latch back on and the code then needs to be inputted as normal.
TIP: A suitable door closer should be chosen and fitted to maximise the security of using a mechanical code lock. When you want people to ALWAYS input a code to gain entry you need to consider the door must ALWAYS be shut for this to be affective. Fit a door closer !
