No. The Keyless Entry is intended to be used during normal business hours. We strongly recommend using a dead-bolt for after hours security. When using a dead-bolt a Disable Key Switch (described below) is not necessary.

Using a Disable Key Switch

Your electrician may install a simple switch noted as the “Disable Key Switch” on the Installation Instructions. This allows you to turn off your electric door strike when the building is closed. The wiring varies depending on whether you are using an electric door strike or magnetic lock (Mag Lock).

  • Electric Door Strike: a disable switch is in series with the door circuit; the strike is disabled when the switch is open.
  • Mag Lock: a disable switch is in parallel with the door circuit at relay box connections C and NC; the Mag Lock is disabled when the switch is closed.
