If you need secure and reliable locks for indoor applications, an indoor magnetic lock is the way to go.
Indoor magnetic locks, also called maglocks, are some of the best locks you can get for indoor use. These are locks that are powered with electricity and connected to a wider access control system. This system can receive signals from external pieces of hardware, and utilize technology to control the opening and closing of the lock.
This is what makes them so great for buildings with a high level of traffic and large populations, in both commercial and residential settings. These locks can be set up to become unlocked when specific fobs or keycards are used to unlock the door as per your programming. This means you can restrict certain rooms, hallways, or areas of buildings with fob access, to ensure only approved personnel can get in and out of those spaces.
The unfortunate drawback of maglocks is that they require constant power in order to work. To improve overall security, especially indoors, backup power should be reserved for your magnetic lock system.
On the plus side, these are incredibly powerful locks that offer amazing security when properly working. Many indoor maglocks available today have an impressive holding force and offer the benefit of easy use by operators to control access in and out of them.
