Most of the time it is the lock release which is remote controlled.This means many locks can be operated in this way.The easiest diy way is to install locca system,these just plug in to the main and wire to the door release of your choice.If you want an actual electric door lock then abloy is the way to go but these are not cheap as they are designed for commercial use.

I have seen a site where you can get remote control access for your door.
