Buzz In Electric Strike Kit
Remote Release of Wood/Metal Doors
Currently you have to drop everything and physically go to the door to let someone in. This is an out of date procedure for granting temporary access, whether for a visitor, trade worker, or customer. With a small amount of effort and investment, you can implement an automated approach to remotely authorize passage. The buzz-in lock kit here has all the components less your wiring to create your new remote release system. It includes the door release push button, a commercial grade cylindrical latch electric door strike, and a 24V power supply. You can choose between a DC or AC power adapter. The DC adapter emits a low click sound when the button is depressed, the AC adapter emits a louder buzzing sound. 24VAC is the most common operation mode. Be sure to match the strike’s voltage selection with your power adapter voltage at installation. When someone needs to come in, simply press the button with the inscribed key and the electric strike will fire, allowing the individual to grab the existing door knob or handle and pull or push the door open. The button pulses the electric strike to open. Strike re-locks upon releasing button.

Questions and answers of the customers
Q This application is for a public bathroom. once they are in would they be able to let them selves... answer nowAYes that is correct as this kit is not designed to lock the door. It is only designed to interact with an already locked handle and allow a locked handle to be opened via the engaging of the strike. As long as the locked handle on the door has free egress the person inside can still exit without being buzzed out.
For a wired solution such as this we highly recommend using a certified electrician to do the installation. If you do not have one a general contractor should know how to wire this for you. However, before you purchase we would recommend speaking with our sales staff to ensure you purchase the correct kit for your door as we have multiple options.
