Electric locks provide more security and convenience at the opening and closing of doors. These need a power supply to operate. They are applicable in different settings, from homes to offices, schools, warehouses among others. However, you must maintain the locks to ensure functionality. A typical set up is a door, cabling, locks, and readers. Electric locks come in two configurations. The first is a fail-safe configuration whereby if activated, it takes power from the bolt, and it unlocks. The second configuration, known as a fail secure. When activated, power it draws power and the lock open. One decides whether the door remains locked or unlocked during emergencies like power outages. Bolts also come in different voltages.

Electric cylindrical and mortise locks connect to access control systems. The bolts have wiring that must run through the core of the door, and through the door frame and back to the access control system. Some are stand-alone with credential readers or keypad. These will run on a battery lock that is replaceable. Electrified cylindrical and mortise locks can either electrically close (FSA fail safe) or electrically open(FSE fail secure).

Magnetic locks are at the head of the door and frame, with a metal piece connecting the entrance to the magnet in the frame. Then, you electrically energize it to secure the door immediately. Magnetic locks are, mostly fail-safe. That means that when supplied with power, the unit lock. A power outage unlocks the locks. This could be risky if the magnetic door is the only unit holding the lock to the door. Also, the magnetic latch connects to an access control system to control functionality. Magnetic locks are more suitable for offices that have glass doors that are not compatible with physical locks.
These are mostly put up to comply with fire codes. Electrical exit devices or push bars can open from outside or inside. Also, they lock automatically. In the event of a fire, however, there cannot be anything electric or mechanical hindering a fast exit. That is why most laws advocate for putting up electric push bars. The push bars allow people to exit the building fast in the event of a fire break out. There is also an option of adding an alarm kit already built-in horn that sounds an alarm when pressed.
