Codelocks, a manufacturer of stand-alone access control products, has launched a digital lock. According to the makers, it enables managers to control and monitor door access. The CL5000AT tubular mortice latch lock records the use of access codes in an audit trail log. This can be useful the makers add in buildings for the protection of controlled assets or sensitive data, as the lock will also register incorrect code attempts: a high number could suggest the lock is being tampered with.
Grant Macdonald, Managing Director of Codelocks said: “Facilities and estates managers are demanding ever greater levels of control and convenience from standalone digital doors locks. The software we’ve created makes it much easier for managers to program and analyse the use of multiple digital locks under their control.”
To find out who went through the door, and when, users can download and review the door activity data using a USB memory stick and analyse the data on a computer. Each lock has a unique number, so users can review the door activity from many locks using the software supplied by Codelocks.
Macdonald added: “The software also significantly reduces the time it takes to program access codes and lock settings. For example, managers might want to restrict access during certain times of the day or week. They can program time-sensitive access codes using the data management software within minutes, and copy settings from one lock to another. Rather than programming each lock manually at the door, facilities managers can use the software and then easily upload the new data to each lock from USB memory.”
CL5000 with Audit Trail is available to purchase from Codelocks. Installed CL5000 products can be upgraded with an audit trail upgrade kit. The kit includes a USB memory stick with the Codelocks Data Management Software, USB connector, PCB and data transfer cable. For more information on both products – call Codelocks on 01635 239645.
