Up until now, if you were looking for a locking system to provide security for your facility you had two choices: 1.Traditional, mechanical Masterkey systems 2.Wired access control systems. *However, both these systems are limited. With traditional, mechanical Masterkey systems you have no way of knowing who has entered your building. Further, if you lose a key you have to either re-key your system (expensive and time consuming) or allow your security to be compromised. Wired access control systems are extremely expensive and they can’t incorporate every access point. Most outside gates, cabinets, drawers,padlocks and safes are excluded from the system. *That was the past. Introducing the EKA System… The EKA System is an Electronic Masterkey System that eliminates all the problems of both mechanical and fully wired systems. It is a system of electronic cylinders that replace mechanical locks or lock cylinders in existing doors, cabinets, drawers, padlocks, safes and more. The EKA System controls everything. If you lose a key, you simply block it. The system has no wires and can control access to every entry point. The keys are programmed with access assignments and schedules, which also allows the administrator to view audit reports and custom reports. It is easily installed with minimal ongoing maintenance required. The EKA System is a revolution in Masterkey systems. It has already been installed into some of Australia’s most esteemed and recognized facilities including the Sydney Opera House. These organizations needed a cost-effective, highly secure and flexible Masterkey system and EKA was the answer. *HOW IT WORKS - The EKA System is simple. The following steps will take you through the process. Simply replace cylinders. Simply replace your existing mechanical cylinders with EKA cylinders. EKA cylinders are the exact dimensions of the cylinders they are replacing.There is no wiring or power required at the door. *Keys are assigned - EKA keys are assigned. The keys are programmed to give that individual hisor her personal access privileges. For instance the key can beprogrammed to allow access from 8am to 6pm on weekdays and 10am to 4pm Sundays. It can also be programmed to expire on a specific date at a specific time. *Keys meet locks- When an EKA key meets an EKA lock, an information exchange occurs todetermine whether the key has access to that specific lock cylinder. The event and time is stored in both the lock and the key. Attempted access is also stored in the lock and key. *Authoriser Keyport - By giving the EKA keys expiry times you ensure users regularly updatetheir keys. Keys are updated at an easily accessible authoriser keyportwhich is linked to your stand-alone computer or network. When validating keys, the system downloads the key’s audit data and uploads new access privileges to the key. *Software - The system is controlled centrally through proprietary stand alone or web-based software. Customised audit reports and automatic notifications on suspicious activities can be automatically generated via email.
