Magnetic locks are some of the most powerful locks you can buy, which makes them a good choice if you’re looking to up your security on certain entrances and exits. If you’re looking for a magnetic lock, specifically for outdoor use, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for here.
Magnetic locks work via electricity to supply the lock with its superior holding force. Once the lock is supplied with power, an electromagnet will work to hold the lock securely in place. To open the lock, something needs to break this connection and cut the power. This usually happens when triggered by a switch or button, or if the lock is triggered by a fob, keycard, or other external devices.
As keypad, fob, and keycard access pair well with this lock type, it's easy to set it on entryways that need to accommodate a large population of people with designated access. Rather than relying on physical keys, buttons, switches, or programmable fobs and keycards can ensure only those who are authorized can unlock a lock and gain access.
Their reliance on electricity means an outdoor magnetic lock needs to be able to withstand the elements, and not become compromised. Many of the locks on our list are weather-resistant, come with mounting hardware, and can easily be connected to an external power source.
