CyberLock System Overview

CyberLock System Overview

CyberLock is a key-centric access control system designed to increase security, accountability, and key control throughout your organization. Based on a unique design of electronic lock cylinders and programmable smart keys, CyberLock solves security problems that no other system can.

Main Benefits

Versatile: Control Access to Every Asset

CyberLock cylinders are easily deployed not only on doors, but also on gates, trucks, shipping containers, and other mobile and remote assets. Full access control is now possible on assets previously restricted to only mechanical locks and keys.

Cost Effective: Eliminate Expensive Cabling

Electronic cylinders are installed without power or wiring making setup and installation quick, easy, and affordable. The batteries in the CyberKey smart keys energize the CyberLock cylinders, bypassing the need to install and maintain expensive wiring.

Superior Key Control: Re-Key Electronically

Keys are programmed with access permissions for each individual user. If a key is lost, it can easily be deactivated in the system, eliminating the need to re-key.

How It Works

Step 1 – Install Your High Security Locks

Replace existing mechanical cylinders with CyberLock electronic cylinders. Each CyberLock cylinder is an electronic version of a standard mechanical lock cylinder. Installation requires no wiring, and the cylinder does not contain a battery, simply remove the existing mechanical cylinder and replace it with a CyberLock cylinder.

Step 2 – Program Your Electronic Keys

Assign CyberKey smart keys to users. CyberKey smart keys are programmed with access privileges for each user and contain a list of locks the user may open with a schedule of days and times they are allowed access. For instance, a key can be programmed to allow access from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. It can also be programmed to expire on a specific date at a specific time for increased security.

Step 3 – Open Your High Security Locks

When a CyberKey meets a CyberLock, the cylinder is energized and an information exchange occurs to determine if the key has access to that specific lock cylinder. If authorized, the lock will open. Both the lock and key record all access events, including access granted and unauthorized access attempts.

Step 4 – Gather Your Audit Trail

When a key is presented to a communication device, the key’s audit trail is downloaded and new access privileges are uploaded. Expiring keys frequently ensures users regularly update their keys. An expired key will not work until it is updated.

Step 5 – View Your Audit Trail

The CyberLock system is managed through CyberAudit management software. Customized audit reports and periodic notifications on suspicious activities can be automatically generated via email.
