Locks are available which are defined as digital, in the sense that they provide for the opening of the armored door through the use of an alphanumeric keypad in which, after having recognized the electronic key, it is necessary to type the code to unlock the lock in order to open the door.
In the most innovative hotels it is possible to find electronic locks which, in order to be opened, require the affixing of the finger to recognize the fingerprint.
All this allows not only a high level of security but above all the creation of a sort of remote control, capable of keeping in memory the number of openings and closings of the security door.
Electronic Door Locks for armored doors can be managed in a much simpler way and without the use of electronic keys, even via a smartphone (Android or iOS) connected via Bluetooth with specific apps that allow system management.
Finally, there are armored doors that activate their own locking system, in conjunction with the extraction of the cylinder.
These locks can be powered mainly in two ways: the first through low voltage current, with the presence of an external power supply; while the second through battery power is able to guarantee thousands of operations and therefore to last over time.
In the event of a power failure or battery depletion or even equipment malfunction, all locks can also be opened manually, especially in an emergency.
Home automation for hotels
Depending on their complexity, locks clearly have different costs. Let’s see some examples to understand the indicative costs to buy them.
A digital electronic lock with alphanumeric keypad is easy to install, with thousands of codes and mountable both outside and inside, and has a reasonable cost.
While one with fingerprint opening and triple opening system, among the best on the market, in addition to being easy to install is also robust, and versatile.
If, on the other hand, you want to buy a good Fingerprint Access Control System, you can choose between various models and buy a very effective lock with a sophisticated design.
Electronic locks today represent the best solution for those who, in addition to significantly increasing security, need to control, even remotely, the opening of the security door or gate, through the use of a code, an electronic badge or a remote control, up to even using your smartphone as if it were an access key.
Relying on brands that have been operating in the sector for many years dispels any doubts about this, as in the case of Magnum whose products combine high reliability, safety, ease of use with efficient after-sales support.
The traditional locks continue to be the most popular due to their greater diffusion, the knowledge that the market has of them and the demand for spare parts based on applied standards.
But certainly the advantages of electronic technology are undeniable: ease of use and high flexibility in managing the access command.
In the world of security, on the other hand, having reached excellent reliability standards, the application of electronics to the opening of safes/cabinets/access control is much more widespread, rather than to mortise locks, where objectively restricted spaces greatly complicate the possible solutions to reduce costs.
