Why to Upgrade Your Traditional Locks to Digital

digital lock upgrade

Now that the New Year has begun, it’s time to start thinking about those security resolutions you’ve made. Your commercial properties require the utmost in security, but do traditional locks provide that? Before you start the process for upgrading the locks in your buildings, you must first consider a few things.

  • What happens when tenants move out?
  • What happens when tenants lose employees?
  • How can guests visit without issuing them keys?
  • How many key copies can be made?
  • How can you prevent unauthorized key copies?

The answer to all of these questions is a digital lock system.

Managing Tenant Use

Whether your commercial buildings house one tenant or several, one thing is inevitable: These tenants will eventually move out. Can you really afford to change the locks every time a tenant vacates their office?

The same is true when a tenant loses an employee. Whether by accident or with malicious intent, employees often leave the job with keys to their office still on their keychain. What kind of safeguards can you put into place to make sure those keys are never used for trouble?

Inviting Guests In

Locked doors don’t really scream “welcome,” but they are a necessity. One-time guests can often meet in an open lobby, but what about guests who are visiting for a while? Instead of issuing keys that will disappear with the guests, you’ll need to consider other options.

How Digital Locks Solve Every Problem

Digital locks only need to be installed one time. That means you don’t need to replace locks every time a tenant leaves or an employee is laid off. Instead, you can change the code or issue new keycards. The amount of money saved for you and your tenant will be staggering after a very short period of time.

Guests can also make use of individual temporary codes. Not only can they come and go freely with their code or keycard, but you and your tenants can also track their movements within the building. No other solution is more secure.

With digital locks, you’ll never need to worry that unauthorized people have copies of your building keys. If you ever feel someone has access to your building when they shouldn’t, you can simply change the codes or reprogram the keycards.
