Is There A Door Strike With Solenoid Selectable Failsafe/Failsecure?

If not, would it be useful?

The idea being for use cases where the strike needs to be set for long periods in both locked and unlocked positions.

Currently if during business hours you wanted the door to be unlatched, but for after hours you wanted it latched, in a failsafe configuratuon, you have to keep current flowing thru the strike for 12 hours at night to keep it latched. And the reverse for fail-secure. Running constant current shortens the life and can make strikes get hot.

Instead what if you could (somehow) change the strike from failsafe to failsecure electrically, when needed?

Then you could set it to failsafe during the day and failsecure during the night, and therefore use very little power.

of course if you can't have the door failsecure ever, then it wouldn't work. But maybe if no one is in the building (with intrusion detection) it could work well.

kind of like a fail-same mode.
