The locksmith industry has changed significantly since locks first were invented. While standard keys are still used very often, you also have other options to keep your home or business safe. You have the choice of electrified locks, digital keypads, keycards and even body part scanning to gain access to a room or building.
Popularity of electrified locks
Electrified locks are becoming more popular because they add another element of security to your residence or business. They’re sometimes also called electric locks. The reason they have this name is that they work by using an electric current. Sometimes the current can stand alone and other times it can be connected to an access control system.

Higher safety standards with electrified locks
There are a variety of benefits to using an electrified lock. It provides very fine access control. Each enter and exit is recorded and logged in for future checking if needed. This allows you to see who is entering your facility and how often. It allows you to check up on them if you suspect an individual is entering your business or home more often than they should or during times when they shouldn’t be there.
- Electrified locks are very easy to use. All you have to do is use a switch. Many apartment blocks use this type of security. At the apartment door an intercom releases the main door when a switch is flicked in the apartment.
- You’ll get an added element of security with an electrified lock because it allows you to remove or add users without having to rekey lock cylinders.
