At Topsec Security Solutions, we sell different brands and varieties of Electric Strikes. This access control device replaces the fixed strike faceplate that is very commonly used with a latch bar. We offer several other door security solutions in New York City and the surrounding local neighborhoods including Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens.
Electric strike is a great option to open the door from a remote location without retracting the latch. Some of these access control systems are integrated with buzzers that trigger a sound when the door is opened to let someone know that the door is being opened.
There are different types of electric strikes; some make use of the voltage from the AC current and some use the voltage from the DC current. Sometimes using a magnetic lock might be better than using an electric strike. However, when buying an electric strike several important factors should be taken in to consideration like:
Fail Safe: this model operates by making use of direct current. The system locks when an electric current is applied. When there is no power supply, the door opens in response to a simple push
Fail Secure: Is the type of electric strike that will open with an electric strike. If there is a power failure the door will remain locked; however, the door can be opened by making use of the knob.
