The Problem with Kaba Simplex Pushbutton Mechanical Locks
Kaba Simplex Pushbutton Mechanical Locks are supposed to eliminate the need to issue, replace and control keys by using a PIN code to access the locks. The PIN codes for Kaba Simplex Pushbutton Mechanical Locks are made up of any combination of one to five numbers (pressed individually or simultaneously), and allow for thousands of possible PIN code combinations. Kaba says the PIN codes can be quickly and easily changed without removing the lock from the door.
This, according to the company, eliminates the normal expenses associated with the issue, control, and collection of keys and magnetic cards. The company claims these locks are perfect for facilities that experience regular personnel turnover, like data processing centers, employee entrances, research labs, apartment complexes, and dormitories.
While Kaba Simplex Pushbutton Mechanical Locks may be more convenient than locks controlled with keys or magnetic cards, they are in no way more secure. Most people, in fact, would be quite shocked to learn how easily a Kaba Simplex Pushbutton Mechanical Lock can be operated by someone without knowledge of the PIN code.
All it takes is a simple magnet! By placing a magnet on the front of a Kaba Simplex Pushbutton Mechanical Lock, an intruder can have access to the premise in just seconds. The ease by which someone of ill intent can enter a hotel room, dorm, bathroom or other premise secured with a Kaba Simplex Pushbutton Mechanical Lock is frightening. Businesses relying on these locks face a serious risk of liability should one of their customers or employees suffer harm because a defective Kaba Simplex Pushbutton Mechanical Lock failed to secure a premise.
