List of Common Lock Types
Locks are generally organized into three main categories, which are electronic, biometric, and mechanical.
- Electronic locks have become increasingly popular in the last few decades. This type of lock system does not require a standard key to open. It requires a magnetic card, code, or passcode.
- Biometric locks are among the most innovative locks on the market. Although they vary slightly, they will require a retina scan, fingerprint scan, or voice recognition to open them. They are considered high-security locks, which is why they are more expensive than the other types of locks on the market.
- Mechanical locks are the most common type of locks that we install. These are the locks that are usually found on most residential homes and businesses, interior and exterior doors. They are made from metal and can be opened with a standard key or with the use of a combination.
These categories have a large selection of lock types, that include deadbolts, cylinder lock, padlocks, mortise lock, cam lock, warded lock, window lock, bike lock, sidebar lock, wafer tumbler lock, magnetic key lock, lever tumbler lock, combination lock, and so many more.
