Most pushbutton lock models are non-handed or field reversible. Electromechanical pushbutton lock models can have hundreds and even thousands of user codes in a hierarchical format. Most have audit trail, event schedules and real time clock as standard. Beyond the pushbutton, electromechanical locks can offer proximity, Mifare®, DESfire® and iClass SmartTM Card readers.
Most of the electromechanical and mechanical pushbutton lock manufacturers state that their products retrofit various Adams Rite® mortise products. Some locks manufacturers include the lock mechanism.
