What Are Digital Door Locks?

Digital door locks are reliable door entry systems that offer a keyless method for entering a building and rooms within a property. There are several types of products available, including:

  • Electronic Keypad
  • Smart Cards
  • Biometric
  • Mechanical

Keypads, smart cards and biometric systems require mains or battery power. Alternatively, mechanical locks are operated with pushbuttons. All these products can be fitted on a wide range of doors, including UPVC and timber.

Benefits of This Secure Access Control

Some of the benefits of using digital door locks include:

Secure Locks

Cannot be Picked

Simple Locks

Easy to Use


Various Models
Internal and External Use

Individuals with access to the combination code, key, card, or fob required to open a door on your premises can easily enter, while potential intruders will not be able to pick the locks and force their way inside. Additionally, combinations can be easily changed on premises when employees, tenants or pupils leave.

Where These Door Entry Systems Can Be Used?

Digital door locks can be used on a variety of premises, including:

  • Hospitals
  • Offices
  • Schools
  • Public WCs
  • Computer Rooms
  • Research Labs
  • Restricted Areas

Using combinations on premises, such as schools, that need to be secure but many people require access is much more practical than using keys. Additionally, buildings can have locks on interior rooms, such as computer rooms and even on domestic properties for carers and nurses.
