Every so often, I am asked to recommend electronic locking products. Having been in the physical security industry over 25 years and worked in multiple continents, I have seen many and varied applications. BEST WIRELESS TRAIL CAMERAS
The electronic components in security products started way back in the early 20th century when the first electric strike was installed in an upmarket New York apartment complex.
Up until that time, multi-level apartment complexes required doormen and an escorted elevator trip. The advantage that the electric strike presented was the ability to enjoy a secure entrance unmanned 24 hours a day and 7 days a week at a significantly reduced cost.
Most electronic hardwired systems available today are required to be “fail-safe”. This means that if the power fails or is interrupted, the device is un-secure. Many product manufacturers started putting in battery back-ups in their products to assist with security necessities.
The advent of wireless systems actually negates the fail-safe mentality until the battery runs out…..but even still many products have an in-built lithium polymer long life battery, to provide just enough power until the main source batteries can be recharged or replaced.
