Electronic Locking for Access Control
Electronic locking is to allow access to door, cabinets, vehicle gates, and other entry points where you may want to limit and track access. Some of the advantages of electronic locking include:
- Limit access to area(s) based on schedule
- Remotely unlock or "pulse" doors using a mobile phone or wireless transmitter (e.g., allowing a door to be unlocked from a reception desk or phone station)
- Track when and who accesses an access point
- Auto unlock doors or gates based on a schedule
- If an electronic key or FOB goes missing restrict its access immediately and get notifications if the key holder attempts to access your electronic locking device.
