A healthcare facility in Pittsburgh, PA, approached Sherlock's Locksmith for an electronic lock installation. They needed to secure one of its doors against unauthorized access, so they asked us to install it with a robust and reliable locking system. Our commercial locksmith worked on this job with professionalism and great attention to detail.

Assessment and Consultation

We carefully looked at the facility's security needs before deciding on our recommendations for an electronic lock. Our locksmith discussed with the management to find the best way to meet those needs. We then recommended the HT RFID Lock by Onity for this crucial installation. This device would bolster security while maintaining ease of access for authorized personnel.

Key Features of the RFID Door Locks

RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) door locks have many high-tech features that make them safer and easier to use. These are the most important things about RFID door locks:

Contactless Access

ID card readers in door locks let people in without touching the lock. Users only need to show the reader an RFID card, key fob, or smartphone for quick and easy entry.

Top Security

Because it is hard to copy or fake RFID cards or fobs, RFID technology offers a high level of security. This type of lock makes it less likely for someone to break in without permission.

Multiple User Access

If you set these RFID locks on doors, you can let more than one person use their RFID card or key. This feature is helpful for businesses and facilities that need different levels of access.

Audit Trail

Many RFID locks have an audit trail feature that keeps track of who opened the door and when. This feature makes things safer and more accountable. It can keep track of when people enter and leave an area.

Remote Access Control

You can control some RFID locks remotely by using a central system. This feature lets administrators give or remove access instantly, even when they are not in the same room.

Battery Backup

Most RFID locks have battery backup systems that keep the lock working when the power goes out. In any situation, this is very important for keeping things safe.


RFID door locks can integrate with existing access control systems, making managing access to multiple entry points within a facility easier.

User-Friendly Interface

These locks typically have user-friendly interfaces that make them easier for people to access. More often, all it takes to get in is a quick swipe of a card or key.

Emergency Override

Many RFID locks have emergency override options, allowing authorized personnel to bypass the RFID system in an emergency or when something goes wrong with it.

Low Maintenance

RFID locks usually do not need as much upkeep as mechanical locks. Because of that, businesses can save money in the long run.

Secure and Robust Design

The materials used in RFID locks are of high quality and designed with durability in mind. That makes them resistant to tampering and hard to break into.
