The CyberLock cylinders are the exact dimensions of the mechanical cylinders they replace. They are an electronic version of a standard mechanical lock cylinder. They retrofit into the lock hardware with the ease of a mechanical cylinder and do not change how the lock operates.
There are over 370 CyberLock cylinders that have been designed for doors, cabinets, padlocks, containers, equipment, safes and more.
Installation is as simple as removing the original cylinder and replacing it with a CyberLock cylinder. Installation requires no wiring or batteries, making installation quick and easy. All power is provided by the CyberKey: when a CyberKey comes in contact with the cylinder, it powers up the CyberLock’s circuitry so CyberKey and CyberLock communicate. If the CyberKey is not on the lost CyberKey list and the permissions are correct, the CyberLock will open.
The circuitry stores multiple types of information: encrypted codes that ensure only CyberKeys within the system work with the CyberLock; and a list of lost keys to eliminate access by any CyberKey that is missing or lost.
CyberLock cylinders offer superior physical security. They have no conventional keyway that is vulnerable to being picked. Moreover, if torque is applied to the barrel, the front part separates from the back half. The back half of the barrel expands, causing a brake effect that engages the sides of the cylinder’s case, stopping the rotation and leaving the cylinder in the locked position.
