Hardened protective components ensure supreme mechanical resistance. Picking tools and skeleton keys cannot be used to access the locking mechanism thanks to the sealed door knob.</p> <p>The door can be opened both with an electronic key and by entering a code. For this purpose, an innovative digit ring is used: similar to a safe, the digits are entered using the knob on the outside. This is turned to the respective digit, which can be confirmed by gently pressing it inwards. After input of the four- to six-digit code, the cylinder couples into place and the door can be opened. This means that if the key has been lost or the door has fallen shut, the double knob cylinder always provides an alternative means of access. <em>"Code entry using the digit ring makes the CodeLoxx...HID completes second successful mobile access control pilot with RFI Communications & Security Systemshttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-130-ga-co-823-ga-co-9647-ga-npr.15462.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-130-ga-co-823-ga-co-9647-ga-npr.15462.htmlNew Product ReleasesFri, 17 Oct 2014 08:00:00 GMT<p>HID Global&reg;, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced that it has completed its second successful mobile access control pilot with RFI Communications &amp; Security Systems at Netflix&reg;, the world's leading Internet subscription service for enjoying TV series and films.
