Many modern security systems include electronic locks. These use a computerised controller to provide power to open the lock, rather than turning a key. The controller often consists of a keypad like a telephone where you type in a key code number.
These electronic locks can have many times more combinations than mechanical locks, often more than a million.
Further security can be provided by changing the key codes regularly, something not easily done with mechanical locks.
