Hybrid

A hybrid lock is a lock that uses two or more types of locking components to secure the lock. Typically, a hybrid lock has a mechanical locking component and an electronic component, both of which requiring a separate type of authentication. Others may use a single key, but have two different types of components inside the lock, such as a pin-tumbler and wafer hybrid lock.

Hybrid locks are commonly used in medium and high security areas where two factor authentication is required, particularly biometrics.
