Single Door Access Control

Standalone access control 

lock in use.

Many times a company only has the need for a single door of access control like an employee entrance, or the door to human resources, or to the IT room.  It could be something simple from a single code mechanical lock to a electronic lock that can be programmed to function in many different ways including tracking whose code was entered into the lock by date and time. Standalone access control locks have been on the market for the past 20 plus years. 


Today these keyless locks are made for just about every style of door found on commercial buildings.  There are two types on locks to choose from; mechanical and electronic.  Mechanical access control locks are on the lower end of features and price while the electronic locks offer full features and functions along with tracking options but

 No more keys!

at a higher cost.   With the exception of the mechanical locks the electronic locks are battery operated with a life span of two years based on average usage.  This keeps the installation cost to a minimum as the need to run wires to the lock has been eliminated

As the batteries start to run low the lock will signal you with steady beeps while continuing to operated as normal.  When you change the batteries, typically 4 to 5 AA, the programming of the lock is held in memory so there is no need to re-program the lock. If for some reason you ignored the low battery warning and the lock goes dead you can still open the door using a key.  Some of these locks are available for residential use but often with less features than their commercial counterparts.  


Below are some popular choices of commercial standalone locks starting with a mechanical lock.


Simplex - Mechanical Pushbutton Lock. 
by Kaba
Simplex has been around for a long time and for good reason...It works.  This is a single code mechanical lock that the installer sets up a 1 to 5 digit code in the lock using a series of turns of the lever or knob and the buttons on the face of the lock.  
Simplex L1000
Only one code can be setup in the lock.  This code would be shared by everyone using the lock.  You can change the code to the lock when needed and by doing so the old code would no longer work.  All users would need to have the new code to access the door. This is a good lock to use when one code will work for everyone and a tracking feature is not required.  Simplex makes an assortment of mechanical pushbutton locks to use for doors and cabinets.  Some of these locks have a deadbolt while others have a slam latch.  Installation is fairly easy as it only requires a few holes to drill.  The body of the lock fits into the standard door prep for the typical cylindrical lockset.  If you can live with the limitations of this lock it would be a good choice.
