CORVALLIS, OREGON, October 30, 2008 â€” Videx, will be showcasing the CyberLock Electronic Lock System at the IACP Police Chiefs show in San Diego. CyberLock provides a powerful, affordable access control solution for police departments that need to secure their facilities and track entry to the evidence room and other critical areas. With CyberLock, departments have the opportunity to implement a system that can quickly provide the physical security, auditing, and key control they need.
The CyberLock system incorporates the mechanical lock hardware and padlocks that are already present in law enforcement buildings. The mechanical cylinders in existing locks just need to be replaced with CyberLock electronic cylinders. All this is done without the expensive costs of hardwiring or structural changes.
Each electronic key contains permissions on what locks the key can open, with a schedule of days and times it will open those locks. Each time the key opens a lock, a record is stored in both the key and the lock. This provides a detailed audit report of traffic into sensitive areas for management to review.
Deputy Chief Powers of the Temple Terrace Police Department in Temple Terrace, Florida, says, "Before CyberLock, our officers carried a large ring full of keys that were not only noisy and cumbersome, but also expensive to replace if lost or dropped while running after a suspect. Now, officers carry a single electronic key for access throughout the department, and security is not threatened due to the 'Lost Key' and key expiration functions provided by the system."
