Backup batteries for access control
Keep your doors secured if the electricity goes off. Backup batteries are useful in the situation. These may be provided by the building on occasion, but they are often implemented as an additional layer on top of bigger access control systems. When there is an outage, the batteries usually make sure to supply an additional 24 hours of backup power to keep everything safe and secure.

Altronix Power Supply And Backup Batteries
The most popular backup batteries in the access control industry are provided by low voltage provider Altronix. They get constant charging, yet they can maintain power for up to 24 hours if the source is cut off.
Expert’s opinion: Although in principle having a backup battery is great, in practice it may potentially be a significant strain, especially if the system is poorly built. You must ensure that the doors can still open even if backup power is only on.
