LOCKEN, a pioneer in cable-free access control based on unique digital smart keys, has become the first in the UK to provide real-time communication as part of a stand-alone solution. This achievement is made possible by the combined use of the MyLocken mobile application and the new Bluetooth enabled electronic Cyberkey.
Instant alerts and communication
Adding Bluetooth technology to the standard Cyberkey allows it to communicate directly with an Android or Windows smartphone. This means that users can retrieve their access rights as soon as they have acknowledged their presence onsite and solely for the duration of their visit. It also enables instant updates to be sent to security managers, so that they have full access to events occurring at any given site.
These new functions respond directly to feedback that LOCKEN has received from many of its security managers, which is a desire to improve procedures and reinforce safety measures.
Nick Dooley, Managing Director of LOCKEN UK explains: "Thanks to this latest innovation, LOCKEN is able to respond to the genuine needs of our customers, who are looking to step up security at remote sites where mobile teams intervene. With this new solution, which permits the transmission of access data in real-time and without the constraints of cabling, LOCKEN is bringing a simple solution to the access control market.
“Several thousand technicians already use this innovation, which is pushing back the conventional boundaries between the online and offline access control arenas, and with 150,000 sites in Europe now equipped with the LOCKEN Cyberlock solution, we are proud to be leading the way in cable-free access control.”
