What are keypad locks?
Keypad locks are a specific type of electronic lock that uses a keypad to key in a code to unlock the doors. These can be used effectively externally, outside the doors and entry points to your property, as well as internally, keeping staff areas and offices safe and secure.
What are the advantages of keypad locks for businesses?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to installing electronic keypad locks to your business premises. These advantages include:
- Convenience- with a keypad lock there is no key or RFID card to keep hold off all the time to gain access to your premises. Instead, you simply need t remember the code to enter at the door. This also means that your building can remain secure, as there is no key or swipe card to steal. Instead potential criminals will need to know the door code, and have opportunity to enter this unseen.
- Range of security features- keypad locks are available with a variety of security features. These include pre-set timed lock out periods when an incorrect code is entered too many times, as well as being able to connect to wireless alarms and CCTV systems to record any suspicious activity.
- Cannot be picked- unlike a traditional lock, the keypad lock cannot be picked or bumped and there is no way for the mechanism to be tampered with, preventing unwanted entry to our property.
