Locksmiths Cardiff Install Electronic Code door entry systems to retail premises, Small offices, residential blocks of flats, Schools, and Industrial units in the Cardiff area. Occasionally we are also asked to install code entry systems in the homes of disabled or elderly people with mobility problems.
Typically an electronic code entry system will consist of an electronic keypad unit mounted on a wall next to a main entrance door. An employee or authorised person will enter the code into the keypad, this will then activate an electronic door release mechanism allowing the person access to the building.
The door release unit could be in the form of an electronic receiver for use with Yale or mortise latch type locks. On Commercial property it would typically be a door magnet mounted towards the top of the door.
These systems are normally powered by a 12v AC or DC transformer which is connected to the mains.
Electronic Code door entry systems provide an excellent means of access control in a small business where several employees are coming and going on a daily basis. They are also very useful on the homes of elderly or ill people that have carers visiting them several times a day.
Unlike voice door entry systems, there is no means of talking to the person inside the building, you must therefore know the code to gain entrance.
However, Electronic Code entry systems are also available combined with a voice entry system. This would allow employees for instance to enter a code and gain entrance. But visitors would need to press the buzzer and speak to a receptionist before being allowed entrance.
