Electric strikes were first discovered and used in 1800s, back when they were popularly of great use in apartment buildings, allowing tenants to remotely unlock the door downstairs. In the last ten years, however, electric strikes have been revived to a new light. They have become the perfect solution to the increasing demands for access control. Electric strikes come in two types: fail-safe and fail-secure electric strikes.

Fail-secure vs. fail-safe

Fail-secure electric strikes stay unlocked even when the power source is out, also providing a lever for people to safely and easily egress during emergencies. Fail-safe electric strikes, on the other hand, require a backup power source in order for them to stay secure.

Electric strikes are most commonly used in dormitories, government offices, industrial areas, hospitals, and many more.
