There are several different types of electronic lock to choose from, when thinking about securing and protecting your business property. These include:

  • Electronic keypads- these can be fitted to the door and it means that anyone who wants to enter must use the correct code. These can be fitted to the outside, as well as to interior office doors inside the property too. Because this doesn’t require a key, there is an additional level of security offered, and it is one of the most popular types of electronic lock available.
