Texas Premier Locksmith in Austin provides professional electric strike installation & repair services. Call 512-893-5811 for end to end access control solutions for improved home & commercial security.

An electric strike is an electronic locking device that works with the help of electric power. It is commonly used along with different types of locksets or other access control systems such as card readers, remote fob key, buzzer or biometric enabled devices. When these devices are used, the action interrupts the flow of electric current and helps to unlock the door without needing to intervene manually to operate the door.

Electric strike provides improved level of security, ultimate level of access control as well as convenience. Considering so many benefits, it is easy to understand why electric strike door locks enjoy immense popularity among home and business owners. In addition, you can easily integrate electric strikes with other access control devices to add extra layers of security for your property. These locking devices are available in different configurations and this versatility makes them a right fit for many types of doors and door frames, and mechanical locksets including mortise locks, cylindrical locks and exit hardware.

Depending on the use, electric strike locks are available in either compact, low profile models or traditional electric strike locks meant for heavy duty applications. Depending on the mode of operation, electric strikes are available in fail-safe (that gets unlocked in the absence of power) and fail-secure (that remains locked even during the power outage) modes. While fail-secure electric strikes help to keep a check on unauthorized access, combining it with a mechanical lockset or panic bars gives the best result. This combination makes sure that people inside of the door can make a safe exit during any emergency situation.
