Cyberlock is a stand alone electronic locking system that does not require hard-wiring. A no wiring access control system allows locks to be located in any location such as office doors, gates, glass plate doors and even padlocks. There is no expense of running cables and no power outlets required for any Cyberlock lock.
The advantage of Cyberlock does not stop with a truly wireless access control system.
Until now, if you installed different types of locking systems you had no choice except to operate and manage them independently. Sitting side-by-side, the result is more expense, more operational work for facility and asset managers, and more opportunities for security breaches.
Cyberlock Access Control
EKA access control solves this through a system that can deliver single, unified access control. Through a hub called Flex, EKA is able to integrate with and manage any other access control system that uses a Weigand — compatible input device-from RFID, to electronic swipe and HID, Maglocks electronic strikes, and even bio-metric devices.
The EKA CyberKey is an electronic, programmable
smart key that cannot be duplicated. Via a
communicator, each key can be programmed with
the permissions for every system lock a key holder
is allowed to access: what locks the key can open,
as well as the days and times each lock can be opened. In this way, each user only needs one key to access any lock in a system, whether it’s a major entry door, or an obscure and remote cabinet padlock. Because it’s electronic, permissions can be revoked.
Administrators can set key expirations to occur regularly (daily, weekly or more often) and can also do this on an ad-hoc basis when keys are lost. Each EKA key contains four levels of intelligence: encrypted access codes to ensure the key is from the same installation; the unique ID number of the key; access privileges for the user of the key; and storage of up to the last 3,900 events, both entries and denied entries.
The unique exchange of encrypted access codes between the lock and key gives a high degree of key integrity. The encrypted codes ensure keys from other systems cannot work in your system.

More than 300 existing CyberLock designs enable it to be installed in an enormous variety of interior and exterior doors, padlocks, containers and cabinets. There’s no wiring and no battery. All power is provided by the CyberKey: when a key comes in contact with the cylinder, it powers up the lock’s circuitry so key and lock communicate. If the key is not on the lost key list and the permissions are correct, the lock will open.
The circuitry stores four types of information: encrypted codes that ensure only keys within the system work with the lock; the unique ID number of the CyberLock; a record of the last 1,100 entries; and a list of lost keys to eliminate access by any key that is missing or lost.
CyberLocks offer superior physical security. They have no conventional keyway that is vulnerable to being picked plus a tamper plug prevents the lock from opening if the front of the cylinder is struck.
Moreover, if torque is applied to cylinder, the front part separates from the back half. The back half of the cylinder expands, causing a brake effect that engages the sides of the cylinder’s case, stopping the rotation and leaving the cylinder in the locked position.
A network of communicators (each communicator can be given an IP address) allows users to validate their CyberKeys without returning to where the EKA software is hosted, instantly downloading audit trail data and receiving updated access permissions. Communicators are also designed to recharge rechargeable CyberKeys.
Communicators are so versatile that they can be mounted almost anywhere, maximising ability to control access to even the remotest assets.Single-key vault cabinet. Remote locations such as maintenance sheds often have many people areas requiring access. By allocating a PIN access code or swipe card to each user, one key is shared among many users, yet every user’s access history can be individually audited.
Cyberlock 20-key vault cabinet.
Ideal for large offices, this intelligent key cabinet stores keys in an inactive state. A swipe or PIN code is required to activate a key, and when staff return keys they are deactivated until they are next retrieved.
An authoriser keypad is a durable, weather-proof unit that is fitted to the exterior of a building or facility. Users present their key to the authoriser and enter a PIN code to obtain permission privileges.
This smaller version of the authoriser can be employed when the additional security of keypad and PIN codes are not required.
In a smaller office, when your EKA software might only sit on a desktop, a simple USB station port is a cost-effective way to authorise keys.
Web stations multi-point access and updating via cat-5 are ideal for larger, network server systems.
This compact USB dongle connects to any CyberKeys via infra-red connection. It’s ideal for remote and mobile workers.
