Standalone access control systems are perhaps the fastest growing market segment in access control. They require minimal installation labor and offer a growing list of features that the majority or small business clients need.
The standalone access control began as a totally mechanical device which used a single memorized code for access. As many locksmiths can testify; there are some situations where a single code mechanical standalone is sufficient.
Today, Standalone Access Control systems are available in cylindrical and mortise models, with a growing selection of specialized models designed to work with exit devices, or mount on storefront type doors.
Although a keypad is almost always present, it may only be there as a means of programming the unit, or as a secondary means of authentication. Many standalone locks use technologies such as proximity, biometrics, or a combination of all three.
More elaborate programming, logging and reporting features are also finding appeal in today's market. Besides being able to keep track of who is enrolled or deleted, eventually the ability to provide an activity log will be invaluable to your customer.
Below is a review of some of the standalone locks on the market and their programming requirements.
