This type of lock is typically what is found within the hotel industry, where guest security and the security of their personal property is the highest priority.

The hotel industry began moving toward the use of electronic locks in the 1970′s due to the risk that traditional keys can be lost and copied. In many ways, the need for enhanced security within the hotel industry prompted the development of technologically advanced electronic locks.

Eagle Guard Security offers hotels locks in mechanical and electronic types and they can be used in a wide range of keycard technologies including mechanical, smart card RFID (radio-frequency identification) and magnetic strip.
