When installing your new lock system, you don’t want to have to rewire your lobby to allow for remote open. Instead, make sure that the lock you choose has a wireless relay switch. This means that with the click of a button or stroke of a key on the computer, your staff can unlock the front door without having those buttons be wired to your front door.
