Electronic Lock Services

Locks Around the Clock provides a wide range of of electronic lock services to residents of Indio and nearby areas. We offer many types of electronic locks:

An electric strike uses an electrical current to move the lock between states of being either open or closed. The current is coming from the doorjamb and not the lock itself. The metal in the door frame are considered as the strikes.

Deadbolts operate by using electromagnets or servo motors. These mechanisms slide bolts into the doorframe, which prevents the door from being unlocked by anyone but the owner.

Most commercial buildings have magnetic locks, also known as maglocks. These locks stay locked even if an electrical current passes through them. When an emergency alarm sounds, the electricity shuts off.

Free exit through the unlocked doors is now possible without jeopardizing security during non-emergencies with these fail-safe locking mechanisms. Fail-safe locks require an electric current to open and will remain secure during a power outage.

One type of innovative electronic lock is radio frequency identification (RFID) locks, which use the mechanisms in items like item tags in retail shops and microchips in pets. These locks open with special keys and other cards.

A rarer electronic key is the passive electronic key. Passive electronic locks interact electronically with keys that are also electrical to use their electronic functions. These locks can be found in transportation, public safety and water utility companies, among others.

Any electronic lock can be activated using any method of inducing an electric current, including passive electronic locks and RFIDs.
