The latest generation of wireless locks and readers is well suited for large institutional deployments, but there are some best practices that can help ensure success, according to an article on the Campus Safety website.
A wireless lock can be a convenient way to add security because it doesn’t have the expense of pulling wire to the door. The lock has to be battery powered.

They are best used in areas that don’t need to be updated frequently such as employee offices and conference rooms.
