The Best Locks for Scheduling Access to Your Business

Let’s face it, no matter how dependable an employee is, they’re human, and humans are prone to error. Unfortunately, human error can be disastrous for businesses, especially if an employee forgets to lock a door after closing for the day. The good news is there are several keyless locks on the market today that allow business owners to schedule the time a door automatically locks or unlocks. This technology eliminates the risk of human error, giving business owners peace of mind. As with any product on the market, not all keyless locks with scheduling capabilities are created equal. If you would like to learn more about how you can upgrade your business’s security, contact our expert team here at GoKeyless today.

Trilogy DL1300: Narrow Stile Access Control Lock

The Trilogy DL 1300 is designed to accommodate the needs of just about any business. From fitness centers to retail locations, restaurants, schools, and much more, this wire-free standalone lock is up for the challenge, no matter the size of your business. In fact, up to 2,000 users can use the Trilogy DL1300 at any given time.

As the business owner, you will have the ability to schedule up to 500 timed events using the real-time clock feature. By using this feature, you will be able to program the lock to automatically lock or unlock at certain times on certain days, including holidays. In addition, you can predetermine who has access to the property at certain times.

With the Trilogy DL1300, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your business is secure no matter the time of day. However, if a problem does occur, you can simply use your computer to download an audit trail, which includes time and date stamps (to access the audit trail, you’ll need to purchase the PC interface cables at checkout).

Schlage CO-200: Proximity + Keypad Card Access Lock

No two businesses are the same, and having the ability to customize your security needs is extremely important. If specific security threats are important to you, the Schlage CO-200 can easily be customized to better suit your needs. This offline PC programmable, stand-alone access control lock accommodates up to 500 users or up to 2,000 users with the purchase of additional software.

The Schlage CO-200 allows business owners to program up to eight unique unlock and time zone schedules. Plus, an extra 32 holidays can be scheduled using the additional software. For added security, this lock is designed with a 1st Person-In feature. This prevents users from entering the building before the supervisor or manager on duty. This feature will work even if the door is scheduled to unlock at a designated time.

Like the Trilogy DL 1300, business owners can receive an audit trail, which features the last 2,000 uses with time and date information. You will also be able to see which employee requested access when.

Yale nexTouch NTB620-ZW2-626: Cylindrical Touchscreen Lever 

The Yale nexTouch NTB620-ZW2-626 was designed with small businesses in mind. This lock allows business owners to easily and remotely manage access rights of up to 25 users without wireless or up to 500 users with wireless. We recommend pairing this lock system with the VeraPlus Z Wave Smart Hub Controller to fully schedule and manage accessibility.

What makes this system unique is the fact it can be managed from virtually anywhere and can send real-time updates, so you will always know who accessed your building and when. Additionally, small business owners can create unique schedules for each employee, allowing you to ensure your property is always secure from opening to close.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, now is a great time to consider installing a keyless lock with scheduling capabilities. To view our full inventory of locks with the scheduling feature, visit the GoKeyless website.
