Is your mechanical lock and key system out of control?

CyberLock electronic lock cylinders and programmable keys are the answer. Simply replace the cylinder in each of your mechanical locks with a CyberLock electronic cylinder. No wiring is required to quickly gain full-featured electronic access control. The locks and keys record openings, providing detailed audit reporting. You'll never re-key your facility again. Electronic keys cannot be duplicated and a missing key can quickly be deactivated.
