CyberKey cabinets provide three layers of security

Videx announces two smart CyberKey cabinets that provide three layers of key security: secure access to the key cabinet, secure access to individually programmed keys, and an audit report of each employee’s key activity throughout a facility.

CyberKeys that are stored in the cabinets contain no permissions to
open locks. When an employee needs a key, their RFID card or correct
PIN must be entered to open the cabinet and entered again to request a
key to be programmed and released. The key that is released contains
the access permissions they need to do their job: what locks they may
open, and when they may open them. As an additional layer of security,
any CyberKey that has been docked in a cabinet cannot be forcibly
removed without destroying the key.

At the end of the day, when the employee returns their electronic key
to the cabinet, an audit trail of their entire key and lock activity is
downloaded to the software. After the cabinet reports back to the
software, the key automatically returns to an un-programmed state. It
remains in this un-programmed state until another authorized employee
presents the required RFID card or PIN identification.
