If you’re looking to add an extra layer of security to an existing entryway or door, electric strikes and deadbolts make for some easy and efficient upgrades. These two locking mechanisms are super simple to attach to an existing door, and can add an extra layer of security against intruders and potential threats.
Electric strikes are a type of locking mechanism that operates mechanically and are installed onto the door itself. These metal pieces work to control and keep a lock in place, and only when triggered will they open and allow the door to move. These triggers can be user-operated, such as a keyfob, and code entered into a keypad or a key card. Alternatively, these locks can be triggered manually, using a button or system to remotely cause the lock to release and allow access.
Deadbolts are heavy, thick locking mechanisms, similar to a traditional key lock. These can be electric or manual, unlocked by the turning of a key or a trigger in an access control system. Like electric strikes, they too can be easily added onto an entryway as a secondary lock, to provide additional security to entrances and exits.
