Secure Your Facilities with CyberLock®

Videx manufactures CyberLock® electronic lock cylinders designed to install inside mechanical lock hardware and give users access control capabilities. CyberLocks eliminate key control problems; cylinders cannot be picked, and the keys cannot be duplicated. Schedules can be set to restrict access to pre-determined days and times. A record of every entry and attempted entry is stored in both the cylinder and the key, providing a comprehensive audit report that details who, where, when, and what.
