Hotel is near sea,how to prevent locks from water?
We met several client has the same question.For this case, IC hotel lock is not prefered because it is more easy to destroyed by unexpected water or dust. IC hotel lock is suggested installed in a clean and inroom place. For the case lock should exposed under sun. We suggest the L5218-M1 model plus a rubber shield which prevent water. However unless a rubber is necessary for you, it is not necessary and not beautiful for appearance.
What kind of door allow install your hotel lock?
Usually there are wood door and metal door(maby not solid metal but surface only).The friendly door for our product is wood hollow door. It is easy to place the mortise inside. For the metal door, please dig hole in advance under the guide of the slotting template.
Another important parameter is the thickness.Our most model hotel lock requires doors is at least 4.0cm(1.57inch).The default max is 5.0cm(1.97inch). If your doors beyond the default max, please inform us so that we can do customize screws for you. Xeeder Stand-alone keycard lock is same in the request of door as hotel lock's.
Can you tell me how to learn the left or right direction of the door?
There are difference of handle and latch for left and right direction doors.User should learn what's left door and what's right door.This is very important because a unproper direction lock can‘t be installed.
Above guide is the usually 4 kind directions.
Xeeder default product is R(Rh) and L(Lh) which are right-hand push style and left-hand push style. In case your door is pull style please inform us on time because the reversed type requires a reversed latch.We will do it for you before packing.
Xeeder Stand-alone keycard lock is same in the request of door as hotel lock's.
Your lock use the AA(LR6) battery, How long can it work?
Lock spend power on the time read card ,unlocking and drive motor. There will be a brightness blue or red light depends on card and beep.It not spend power for closin.
In theoretics, a standard group 4pcs X AA alkaline battery has 25,000 times unlock life. However the real case is different because the lock will be locked by deadbolt by guest when they are sleeping.Our hotel lock has the deadbolt awoke light in the sensor window which is a small red light flashing continuously.Also the sensor inside lock requires power to detect the card in front of it always.(lock don't know when there will be a card, So it will keeps detectiong whenever by a very low power drived).
The result is that it has 12 months life for a frequency at 20 opening/day.
