Metra electronic smart locks are driven by electric motor. In comparison to solenoid (electromagnet) locks with latches, electric-motor driven have a much better holding and pulling force (force to power ratio). This makes the Metra smart locks un-sensitive to vibrations, e.g. door slams, which can also cause difficulties in proper functioning, especially when there is too much force/tension on the door from the inside (e.g. fully stuffed locker). Metra smart lock, due to its electro-motor, can function fixed at any degree, providing locker door opening direction of choice (“gravity-free unlocking”).
Metra electronic smart lock also does a self-test at each locker use, which ensures the highest locker lock reliability on the market and maintenance-free locker use for many, many years. Contact us for more details.
