Card reader locks which you swipe or insert a card aren't as popular as they use to be. Nowadays everyone uses either number pad locks, or RFID, or biometric finger print scanning locks.

 

None are cheap expect to pay any ware between $200-$500 dollars per lock or more.

 

I'd personally get a Biometric finger print scanning lock like this one

because they usually cost about the same as a good number pad lock and are cheaper then RFID locks and are much harder to pick open unlike number locks which the codes can be guessed or RFID/card locks which the cards can be stolen or misplaced.

How about one of these?

 

I see these all the time in hospitals. They are letter, four digits, letter which is pretty secure!

 

Cheers
