Advantages of electronic locks


Do you still use mechanical locking mechanisms and do not understand why installing electronic analogs of the new generation is worth investing in? Let us tell you about the new features of HSU locks and you will probably change your mind.


It is important to know that keycard-access electronic hostel locks are required not only to restrict access to some particular rooms and areas. The list of their functions is much longer. The system consists of an electronic module to be installed on a door (it can be powered by common batteries or a rechargeable battery), a keycard, and software. Keycards are issued by a receptionist. All the events are logged.


By using electric locks, you will have the following advantages:


  • Automatic control of time intervals within which a guest can open a door with their keycard. When issuing a keycard you can indicate time limits. For example, from 3 p. m. today to 12 p. m. the next day.
  • Keycard-access electronic hostel locks can be opened with keycards for which different time limits were set. This solves the issue of allowing access to the same area for guests with different keycards.
  • The keycard system can be integrated with accounting modules: their generating and issuing are logged. As the owner, you will be completely protected from the dishonesty of the personnel and their off-the-books earnings.
  • It is impossible to have a keycard copied at the closest workshop. A hostel is a facility with a large flow of guests, and not all of them turn out to be conscientious. If a mechanical lock is installed, it is enough to have a key copy to enter a closed area. The hostel owner needs to have mortise parts replaced from time to time. In the case of an electronic version, after the expiration of the set time, the keycard is automatically blocked and cannot be used to open a door.
  • The problem of lost keys can be easily solved: the previously issued keycard is blocked in the control system and a new one is generated.
  • Keycard-access electronic hostel locks are designed for an increased number of life cycles. You can forget about spinning mortise parts, broken blades and locks that won't open at the worst possible time.
  • Security for guests is another advantage of electronic hostel locks. Due to events logging the cases of theft and other force majeures will be reduced considerably. Security cameras and the logged events help to identify exactly who and when entered a room, who and when opened a door.

There is no doubt that such devices help to reduce expenses associated with the access system maintenance, increase the security for hostel guests and personnel, provide higher-level services. This provides an additional competitive advantage and allows you to set a higher price for accommodation. High security is an important factor for many guests and can be a key one when choosing a hostel.


Keycard-access electronic locks for hostels are a kind of filter that helps to protect the facility from unscrupulous and marginal persons. Efficient control systems are an additional barrier preventing offenses.


Extra features


A keycard can be used not only to control access to a particular room, but also for other purposes:


  • In the combination with a smart energy-saving switch, a keycard is required to restrict access to sockets for guests from other rooms.
  • If you install electronic locking equipment on storage lockers, your guests and personnel will be able to open the door with a keycard. Note that the same keycard can be used to open both the room and the locker door. Only the guest for whom the keycard was issued can open and close the door.
  • Installing a limited access turnstile allows controlling the flow of guests. This ensures that only your guests will be in the hostel.

Keycard-access electronic hostel locks are a great management solution. Of course, such locking systems are more expensive than their mechanical analogs. But the cost difference will be fully compensated within a year due to reducing losses associated with lock maintenance and replacement and better controlling incomes of the personnel.


HSU electronic locks are especially durable: the locking mechanism is made of steel and is fitted with a mechanical closed-door sensor which prevents lockpicking by shifting the latch. In order to provide the highest level of security, all locks have a secret emergency mechanical key that can be used in case of failure of all systems. Such events are also logged. You can find compound-covered locks in our catalog too. These models are perfect for installation on entrance doors and external constructions.


If you still have any questions about HSU electronic locks, please, contact our managers to ask them and clarify any issues.
