CompX eLock 300 Series is a keyless, network ready electronic access control lock for cabinetry. Since the eLock is keyless system, there are NO keys to lose or share. The eLock also provides a comprehensive audit trail of the last 15,000 access attempts - including date, time and user name which can be viewed with LockView 4 software.
The network function allows two-way (eLock and LockView 4) communication on existing network systems either by 802.11g wireless or Ethernet connection; proprietary access points, repeaters or other infrastructure alterations are not required. The transmission of eLock access data (audit trail) occurs wirelessly from the eLock to a facility™s wireless access point (i.e. router), where the information is then delivered to the network server. LockServ, a module of LockView 4 software, resides on the network and directs information from the server to LockView for processing. Information from LockView to the eLock will follow the reverse path, enabling two-way communication while utilizing familiar security encryption methods; WEP 64-key, WEP 128-key, WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (AES) and other enterprise-class wireless security. An average data transfer of four (4) user changes and twenty-five (25) audit trail events is around 20 KB. As a means of comparison, this is equal to the size of a small email message.
LockView 4 software enables updates via the network to any eLock on the system. Updates can include: user changes, eLock changes and access rights changes.
The network cabinet eLock has the ability to alarm at the unit and at the PC on four different alerts: low battery, failure on network check-in, *unauthorized entry and *door ajar (*requires optional door switch). Alerts can be sent to designated responders and will escalate until the alert has been cleared. The Notes Entry feature in LockView 4 software provides documentation for what action was taken as the result of an alert.
The eLock can hold up to 3,000 unique user codes and can be programmed to read a facility's existing employee identification cards using HID proximity, HID iCLASS proximity, or magnetic card credentials.
The cabinet version has three components: eLock controller, battery pack and latch. The eLock controller mounts directly on the outside of the cabinet door or drawer, while the battery pack (6-AA, not included) and latch are mounted inside. Since the batteries are located inside the cabinet, every eLock unit includes a jump start 9-volt power port, which allows the user with a valid credential to access the eLock when the batteries are exhausted. All eLocks have non-volatile memory, ensuring that all users, audit trails and other programmed features are not lost in the event of a power outage.
