The system consists of a pick-resistant cylinder and CyberKey. The cylinder, which contains a microprocessor and memory, has the same dimensions as a standard six-pin mechanical cylinder. In addition, it can be installed in tubular knob sets, lever locks, rim locks, and mortise locks in doors; as well as locks in cabinets, drawers, storage cabinets, and padlocks. Since the cylinder contains no battery, it is well suited for use in both indoor and outdoor applications.
The access privileges and battery power are located in the CyberKey. Each time a key opens the lock, a record of the user ID, date, and date is stored in each device, creating a lock and key history. The key holds up to 1,150 events and the lock records the last 1,110 events. The key can be programmed to allow user access at specified times and on specific days, and can be set with a date to begin and to end operation.
For added security, the lock can require multiple keys to gain entry. Locks can be set to require 2, 3, or 4 custody keys in combination. Plus, a delay can be set before the lock will open after an authorized key is presented.
CyberAudit software enables users to use their PC to configure keys and lock cylinders with the proper access privileges, as well as to download a report of access events.
