Maglocks electric strikes request to exit motions buttons
Maglocks or Electric strikes?
Maglocks don't have moving parts like electric strikes do so they will last longer.
Electrics strikes for the most part will allow free egress from one side of the door so request to exit motions and buttons are not required.
The cost is about the same for either a maglock on a single door or an electric strike.
When you use maglocks most of the time it is required to tie the lock into the fire alarm system for door release
Maglock, request to exit motion, often a button to release the door as well. (Depends on fire marshal) Combined this ends up costing more
Electric strikes vary in cost depending on quality.The cost ranges from $240 to over $1000 each although a good quality strike is around $400
Strikes are the part in the door or door frame that can be unlocked with a card/prox reader electronically
Strikes come in two flavors: Fail Safe or Fail Secure.
Fail safe locks will unlock when you loose power allowing people to come into those doors after a power loss.
Fail secure locks will stay in the locked position when there is a power failure.
Access Control Door packages normally range from about $1,800 to $2,700 depending on the door and the location of the door.
Equipment needed: Prox Reader (Card or tag) or Biometric Reader (Eye or finger scan) or Keypad (not recommended) Electric strike or Maglock (Is the door wood, metal, glass, double door, single door) HES is a good brand and Von Duprin is better (more $) Door hold open door contact (Lets you know when the door is propped open) Special Cable for access control ran back to the headend controllers which are tied to your computer system
The first door will cost more than the next doors because there is the cost of setup, software and the controllers.
When you buy a two door system the second door will normally cost less and if you buy a 3 door system many times the controllers come as two door controllers so adding the 3rd door later normally won't cost as much because the controller will already have the slot for the third door. Each system is different although being informed about these matters will help you make the best decisions when contracting a security company.
