Videx's intelligent padlocks provide electronic access control and auditing. A padlock can be quickly converted into a full-functioning access control system simply by replacing its mechanical cylinder with a CyberLock electronic cylinder. Padlocks retrofitted with these intelligent cylinders are the perfect solution where controlled access and the ability to track lock openings are needed. A full line of CyberLock padlocks with the electronic cylinder pre-installed is also available.
The electronic padlock system consists of the CyberLock padlock that has no keyway to vandalize, a programmable electronic key that cannot be duplicated, and software for managing the system. Each authorized employee’s key can be programmed with the specific access permissions they need to do their job: what locks they may open, and when they may open them.
Each time the key opens a padlock, a record is stored in both the lock and the key. This audit reporting of lock openings and exceptions such as attempts to enter can be especially valuable to management when security issues arise. A key can be set to automatically expire within minutes, hours, days, months, even shift-by-shift, depending on the specific task that has been assigned to the user. A missing key can be quickly blocked from opening locks.
