Functions and Characteristics

Access Control

The control, management, and monitoring of the entrance and exit of people through secure areas.

Access Records/Operation Records/Unlock Records

When a smart key is used to unlock or lock a lock, an access record is created that logs details such as the time and user. This record is stored securely and can be reviewed by authorized personnel to monitor access activity and identify potential risks or vulnerabilities.

Blacklist Management

When an electronic key is lost, the administrator can report it as lost or stolen in the electronic lock management software. The lost key is then added to the “blacklist.” Keys on the blacklist have no authorization to unlock any locks. After reporting the key as lost, the administrator needs a blank key to encode the blacklist information onto it. The blank key communicates with the electronic locks, informing them which keys are on the blacklist.

It is used for managing the lost smart keys, once the lost keys are blacklisted, they can’t unlock the locks anymore.
