As the name suggests, a door lock is a device used to lock a door and prevent others from opening it. There are many types of door locks, and their requirements vary in different situations. For ordinary households, it is usually recommended to use anti-theft door locks, which are highly secure and relatively inexpensive.
Automatic Door locks have emerged with the development of electronic technology. They outperform mechanical locks in terms of ease of use, anti-illegal opening, smart management, etc. As a result, they have been widely applied in industries with high security requirements. The commonly seen Automatic Door locks in the market include magnetic card, IC card, TM card, and RF card locks. With numerous brands and varieties of Automatic Door locks in the market, how should we choose? The following principles should be taken into account when selecting Automatic Door locks.
Different usage environments have different functional priorities. For example, as an electronic automatic door lock for financial institution offices, the lock must have functions such as time limit on all key cards, door opening record, and hierarchical management. On top of the basic functions, the lock system should also be expandable, and the card system's technical interface should be considered to monitor the status of room doors in real-time and control door opening in emergency situations. The best solution is a networked door lock and simultaneous consideration of other IC card system interfaces for implementing a one-card passage.
As a safety and security product, an automatic door lock must possess security and stability. Safety can be measured from two aspects: one is the ability to withstand intentional damage, pranks, and violent damage such as prying and drilling. In this regard, the mechanical strength of mechanical and Automatic Door locks is generally sufficient. However, among all types of door locks, only the RF card Automatic Door lock has a fully enclosed structure, making it the safest. The second aspect is to prevent technical openings. The ability of mechanical locks to prevent technical openings is very poor. No matter what structure of the mechanical lock is used, it can be opened by other means, and key copying is a considerable security risk. In Automatic Door locks, magnetic cards are easily copied because they have no password restriction. IC cards and RF cards completely solve the problem of preventing technical openings.
As a door lock, its stability is also crucial. Not being able to open the door when it should be opened or not being able to close the door when it should be closed may cause significant losses to financial institutions. Typically, among the several types of Automatic Door locks, the stability of RF card Automatic Door locks is significantly higher than that of other Automatic Door locks. Magnetic cards are susceptible to strong magnetic fields, IC cards are sensitive to oil, dust, and static electricity, whereas RF cards are fully sealed, waterproof, anti-static, and dust-proof. From the perspective of card reading, only RF cards offer non-contact reading, and their service life is the longest.
IC cards can serve as identification, tickets, e-wallets, and so on, but the inconvenient operation (long operation time) and poor environmental adaptability of contact-type IC card Automatic Door locks have made them gradually obsolete, especially in public and semi-public environments, such as attendance, meal consumption, public transportation systems, parking lots, etc. Non-contact IC card electronic automatic door locks are a new type of Automatic Door lock that has just been produced. Due to their high reliability, high security, non-contact, quick and convenient operation, and long service life, they have become the product replacing contact-type IC card Automatic Door locks.
