I should clarify: Low-cost electric strikes from no-name Asian vendors
(i.e. the ones that routinely sell on eBay or Amazon for USD 10-35)
aren't suitable for heavy use.  You really want one of the U.S. or
European-made Grade I electric locks or strikes.

Also, electric locks are often easier to install and require building
modification than strikes.
