Crash, bang, wallop: What a power-down. But what hit the kill switch?


Re: Not Unique...

Building codes changed a bit over the year, magnetic lock doors here now can't work like that anymore.

You can get the usual ID mechanism (card reader or biometric or whatever on the side of the door) for normal access, but emergency access has to be the "normal door way" i.e. turn the handle / press the release bar in the middle of the door, except secure doors are allowed to have a timer of up to (15 seconds I think) with an audio warning before the emergency release happens / alarms are triggered.
