Electronic door locks have emerged with the development of electronic technology. They are incomparable to mechanical locks in terms of ease of use, anti-illegal opening, and intelligent management. Therefore, they are widely used in industries with high safety requirements. Commonly used in the market are magnetic cards, IC cards, TM cards, and RF card electronic door locks. How to choose among many brands and many varieties of electronic door locks? In the purchase of electronic door locks, the following principles should be grasped.
The environment to be used in combination with the function
It is necessary to determine functional requirements based on the application, as different usage environments have different functional focuses. As an electronic door lock for financial institutions, the necessary functions are: a time limit function for all key cards, a lock record function, and a hierarchical management function. On the basis of the basic functions, in order to adapt to future development, we can consider the expansion of the lock system (the system can manage the staff office, public channels, dedicated channels, etc.), consider the technical interface of the card system, etc., so that the room door can be monitored in real time. The state can control the opening of the door in the case of extraordinary events. The best solution is to network the door locks and consider the interfaces of other IC card systems together in order to implement the card.
Safety and stability are extremely important
Door locks must be safe and stable as a safety precaution product. Security can be measured in two ways: First, resist vandalism, mischief, and deliberate violent destruction such as smashing and drilling. In this respect, the mechanical strength of mechanical locks and electronic door locks can generally meet the requirements. Among all types of door locks, only the RF card electronic door lock is a fully enclosed structure, which is the best in safety. Second, the prevention technology is turned on, and the ability of the mechanical lock to prevent the technology from opening is very poor. Regardless of the mechanical lock of that structure, it can be opened by other means. The key can be copied is a big security risk. In the electronic door lock, the magnetic card is easily copied due to the lack of a password. The IC card and RF card completely solve the problem of preventing the technology from opening.
As a door lock, its stability is also very important. When the door should be opened, the door cannot be opened. When the door is closed, the door cannot be closed, which may cause serious losses to the financial enterprise. In general, among several electronic door locks, the stability of the RF card electronic door lock is significantly higher than other electronic door locks. Magnetic cards are afraid of strong magnetic fields. IC cards are afraid of oil, dust and static electricity (especially in dry weather and wool textiles), while RF cards are fully sealed, waterproof, anti-static and dust-proof. From the card reading method, only the RF card reader does not touch, and its service life is the longest.
Should consider the development trend of technology
The IC card can be used as an identification, a ticket, an electronic wallet, etc., and the inconvenient operation of the contact type IC card electronic door lock card is inconvenient (long operation time) and poor environmental adaptability, so that it is gradually eliminated, especially in Public and semi-public use environments, such as attendance, dining expenses, public transportation systems, parking lots, etc. The non-contact IC card electronic door lock is a new type of electronic door lock that has just been produced. Due to its high reliability, high safety, no contact, fast and convenient operation, and long service life, it has become a replacement product for contact IC card electronic door locks.
