Wireless cabinet locks facilitate hospital security

April 5, 2017

In healthcare facilities, wireless cabinet and server cabinet locks bring single-card access control to individual cabinet doors, according to an article on the Security Info Watch website.

The most convenient systems use existing ID badges so there are no keys to control or replace, and no codes to secure or remember.

Part of the renovation of a Milwaukee-based pediatric care facility included a pass-through cabinet for each patient room. By selecting the wireless cabinet lock strategy, the facility was able to avoid the very expensive ceiling-access procedures that require bringing in special equipment including air filtration and dust/infection containment systems and negative air pressure management systems, the article said.
