This is the most basic form to control access but is not an access control system, it uses a Magnetic lock and offers you the advantage of controlling doors by keeping them closed and accessible only with a push of a button or by pressing an indoor exit switch.
A Maglock with a buzzer goes at the top of the inner frame of your entrance door and has to be wired to a power source to keep it magnetized. This basic setup can be done also with an Electric Strike instead of the Maglock.
Without the door intercom, you can’t know who is outside. Unless you have visual access to the visitors outside, an intercom will be necessary with your maglock. Combining a Magnetic lock with a Voice or Video Intercom is more effective than the maglock alone.
The Intercom System allows you to see and talk with your visitors before letting them in. Maglocks and intercom systems work together giving you very functional access control to keep your office secure.
