In the modern era of security, you can’t judge a structure by its cover. Within a distance of several miles, you may move through several architectural timelines, from the 1970s to the 2000s and back to the 1990s. You may even cruise through a historic district of homes dating back to the early 1900s. Out of necessity, dated architecture has often been re-tooled into smart buildings with electronic door locks, surveillance, and alarm systems.
Most electronic door locks offer some combination of a physical and electronic locking system to control the same door. Electronic locks involve parts called “actuators,” which connect the bolt to a small motor that is controlled by an electrical impulse. An electronic card reader, keypad, or a wireless remote control sensor will trigger the motor-driven actuator. Not to be confused with electrified locks that operate as a stand-alone application.
So, whatever genre your home or complex was built in, it is possible to join the age of efficiency with electronic door locks. New entrance and exit security systems are often at the heart of updating any structure. This upgrading process begins with installing electronic door locks that provide a premium level of security as well as offering many other advantages.
Advantages of Electronic Door Locks
Are you considering e-locks for your next door hardware upgrade? Here are six perks of upgrading to electronic door locks:
Today’s digital world is based on making mechanical devices easier to operate. Electronic door locks offer the ease of access that people are looking for. These smart devices can come with the option to auto-lock for every exit and entry point. Keyless entry is also an option, and all you need is an access credential.
TownSteel’s e-genius offers some of these convenient features.
Security is a top concern for any home or business owner. Electronic locks offer a high-level layer of security, including various alarm and smart monitoring services that can be turned on or off. This added level of security allows you to carry out your daily home or work life without the worry of someone breaking in.

Electronic locks are becoming the norm in a world with increasing security concerns. Schools and other childcare settings are implementing greater safety measures each year as their safety regulations become more stringent. Electronic lock security can include a classroom lockdown function that is part of the School Safety Program.
TownSteel offers a variety of electronic locks in our full Classroom Lockdown Catalog.
4. Wi-Fi Connectivity
You can often depend on electronic locks being able to connect to your existing internet service. This allows you to operate the access remotely and also connect to the larger security system of your home or business. From here, you can control who enters and exits your home by viewing who is at the door at any given moment.
TownSteel offers the e-Kontos 5000RF as one of our wi-fi connecting locks.
5. Manage Access Control
Electronic lock systems also allow you to manage who enters the building. You can create temporary access codes for co-workers or guests for a scheduled period of time or on a one-time basis. Then the codes are erased from the system as soon as they expire. This system is excellent for residential homes, offices, and commercial spaces.
TownSteel’s Smart 5000BLE offers many of these desirable features.
6. High-Tech Features
Many electronic locks offer further advanced options. Some devices can provide touch-screen keypads, a variety of modes and settings, as well as paring with a local database system. Some of these high-tech features have revolutionized safety within the mental health system.
TownSteel’s e-Trident is one product that operates with some of these specs.
