It's why thousands of clients around the world choose GoKeyless™ for their security and access control needs each year. The Alarm Lock remote release maglock kit is a turn key solution for reception areas or any space where you want easy buzz-in convenience.  With a holding force rating of 1,200 lbs. the electric lock is considered acceptable for high security installations with a lot of traffic, typically aluminum office-front doors.  Kit includes a plug-in 12 Volt AC transformer saving you from pulling wires.  Supporting up to 100 individual remote control fobs, there is plenty of capacity to provide multiple people on your staff with a remote.  This way when the receptionist is out to lunch or away from their desk, anyone passing by the door can buzz it open for visitors.  Your guest will hear the universally recognizable buzz sound, indicating the door is unlocked, and that it's okay to come in.  Since the communicating signal is infrared, remote will also operate from outside the door, up to 10FT away.  On the interior side, the keyfob's range is 35FT, sufficient for most office settings.  Combine remote release maglock kit with an exterior keypad, card reader, or biometric reader to securely grant and control access into your office.  An exit button, and motion sensor switch should be added to the interior side of the door for egress.

Customer Questions & Answers

  1. Q Can it work on a sliding door? answer now
    Asked by Joe Villanueva on November 22, 2019 4:36 PM
    Answered by the admin

    These units can only be installed to operate a single door and is mainly recommended for outswing doors.

  2. Answered by the admin

    This Maglock can be paired with a keypad or reader that has a passage mode function to be open during certain periods of the day. 

  3. A

    This remote kit is designed to unlock the maglock not to lock it. We would recommend that you speak with our commercial sales staff to find a system that will best fit your needs. 

  4. Q what happens if there is a power outage in the building? answer now
    Asked by Dave on October 18, 2017 12:52 PM

    Due to the maglocks requiring power to lock if you lose power the door will unlock. It is recommended to have a backup power source or to have a traditional lock on the door that can be locked in such an event. 

  5. A No, this kit is simply a remote release kit designed for maglocks. Rather than having to approach the door and pressing a release to exit button you can use the remote to unlock from a distance. Most common uses are for reception desk where this application is installed.
  6. A Unfortunately, no, this is not a weatherproof magnetic lock. You'll want to look at the Schlage M490G which is weather resistant and then add on a receiver and transmitter for remote unlocking.
  7. Q Can it work for inswing doors? answer now
    Asked by Jazz on November 6, 2016 10:55 AM

    Yes you can use the maglocks for inswing doors but the installation requires specific hardware in order to do so. Your installer should be able to recommend what will be necessary pending your door configuration. 

  8. A
    For this remote entry you need to have line of sight in order for the remote to interact with the maglock so if you are in a different room or have obstructions it can make operation difficult. There are other options for hardwired remotes or even hardwired receiver options such as eMerge  controller systems which our sales staff would be happy to assist you in choosing. 
  9. Q How many remote controls come with it? answer now
    Asked by Lateef on October 3, 2016 9:18 PM

    Only one keyfob is included but you can purchase and link up to 100 total. 

  10. Q Is magnet active when voltage applied? When no voltage is release gained? answer now
    Asked by Vincent Veligor on October 2, 2016 11:36 AM

    Correct, the housing (magnet) has continuous voltage / current flowing to it. When the armature comes into contact it is locked. When there is no voltage, or when the current is interrupted with a switch (Request-to-Exit, remote release button, etc), it's unlocked and release is gained.
