What is

EKA CyberLock is an electro-mechanical master key system. It is a hybrid product that has combined the attributes of conventional proximity or swipe card access control with those of a mechanical master key system. With an EKA CyberLock system, it doesn’t matter where the lock is, electronic access control is possible.

secKeyCloud access control technology is a cutting edge security solution for any industry or sector that needs a sure way to secure, control and audit assets that extend beyond the door.

CyberKeys are 100% electronic, programmable and loaded with the access profile of the key owner.

Communicators provide the ability for the software and the keys to communicate.

The cylinders are the exact dimensions of the mechanical cylinders they replace so they can retrofit into the lock hardware.

CyberAudit Software is used to configure and manage the system, providing control of all access profiles, users, Cyberlocks, keys and auditing functions.

Access Control for mechanical master key systems.

How it works

The electronic CyberKey system essentially combines programmable electronic keys that can have any level of access ascribed to them, combined with a wide range of CyberLocks (350 different cylinder types), which read the permission level of each key, allowing access only in accordance to the permission granted. The other main component is the 20-key CyberLock Vault, which gives maintenance personnel access to individual keys only by way of a personalised PIN or access card, which automatically transfers the right access level to the key.

Trade and maintenance contractors, cleaners and other periodic staff can simply open the doors they need access to with their key prescribed with their personalised access permission. Upon completion of their task the key is simply returned to the CyberLock Vault where it is instantly registered as returned, delivers a full usage audit to the software interface, and is recharged and wiped clean again ready for its next user.

secKeyCloud offers a web based platform to manage the Cyberlock Electronic Masterkeying System

Previously if you were looking for a locking system to provide security for your facility the choices were a traditional mechanical keying systems or a hardwired access control system. However, both systems are limited.  

CyberLock has been designed as an Electronic Key access control system, providing full featured access control to every locking point in a facility without wiring.  Incorporating electronic lock cylinders, programmable keys, and software, you can create a powerful system to track and control access to every lock within your organisation. Receive audit trails and reports on every lock and key to know who was where and when. Keys are programmed with access permissions customised to individuals and schedules using proprietary software, which also allows administrators access to audit or customised reporting.   If a key is lost it can simply be blocked by logging into the system and deactivating the key.

The EKA CyberLock Electronic Masterkeying System is easily installed with minimal ongoing maintenance required.  Electronic cylinders are retrofitted into existing doors, cabinets, drawers, padlocks, safes and more. 

Case Study • 1 O'Connell Street, Sydney

We were engaged by the Building Manager, Vaughn Papworth, and JLL to retrofit 450 door locks throughout the building with state-of-the-art EKA CyberLock cylinders.
Traditionally, Le Plenier needed to physically audit the key register of hundreds of keys to see if a key was missing. This took considerable time on a daily basis. Then, if any key was missing, he had to manage the intrinsic risk associated with it until locks could be replaced. He had great concern about the lag-time that is usually associated with having to retrofit mechanical locks before security could be re-established, let alone the considerable cost.
With the building’s new CyberKey system auditing the keys is done automatically and with added email notification, plus the interface has visual cues should a key not be returned by its due time. Best of all, any missing key can have its access permissions blocked immediately, presenting zero risk to the integrity of the building’s security.

“Installing a new mechanical master key system that will again be compromised should a single key be lost seems backwards to me. I don’t know why anyone would invest in an archaic key system when there are better solutions available that present zero security risk,” says Vaughn Papworth, “I just love it.”
