Electric door strike wiring help


Hi,

I have just installed an electric door strike/release contraption. I have it wired up to an intercom unit that has it's own door release function but it it has a delay which means if the person outside doesn't push the door when i push the button, there is a 30 second delay before i can release the door again.

What i wish to do is wire the the door strike up to a seperate switch (not through the intercom unit). Can someone guide me on how to do it? The strike is 12volt. I guess i will need a 12v adaptor and some sort of push button switch. How exactly do i run the wires to and from the button > adaptor > door strike to make a circuit?

Any help appreciated.

I have an Nec phone system that I use the flash key to activate the door strike but I'm not sure how to wire the door to the phone system!
