Adding sophistication to its KitLock by Codelocks range
Digital lock innovator Codelocks continues to provide smarter access for everyone with the introduction of the stylish and versatile KL1100 RFID lock to its KitLock by Codelocks range.
The new KL1100 RFID is a smart card operated lock designed for both public and private lockers. Users can simply lock and unlock the KL1100 RFID at the touch of a card.
Public Function is suitable for short-term multi-occupancy applications such as gyms, hotels and hospitals. Private Function is best for users that require regular access to a personal locker, such as a students or employees.
Featuring a sleek, slimline front design, the KL1100 RFID is available in a metallic silver or gloss black finish. It is ideal for leisure centres, universities and offices looking to enhance or upgrade their facilities.
Colin Campbell, Managing Director at Codelocks said, "We are excited to launch this new addition to our KitLock by Codelocks range. It is perfect for building and facilities managers that need to manage large quantities of lockers, as they benefit from issuing and managing cards from reception desks. For anyone looking to upgrade their lockers with contactless smart access control, the KL1100 RFID offers a classy, modern design that enhances any application."
The KL1100 RFID can be operated in two modes, allowing administrators to manage card access either locally or remotely. In Standalone Mode, administrators can use a Keypad Programmer (sold separately) to manage locks individually. Up to 50 User Cards, 10 Technician Cards and 1 Master Card can be allocated to each lock. Remote Card Authorisation (RCA) Mode is a better option for administrators that need to manage large numbers of lockers, as it offers convenient remote management for up to 250 locks within a lock group. RCA Mode offers remote management allowing Card Clients to be authorised via a PC using offline or cloud-based software and a Smart Card Reader.
The Standalone and RCA Modes both support Private and Public Function - making this a versatile solution for securing lockers in any situation. In Public Function, the lock can be given a maximum lock time or be set to open at a specific time - ensuring fair use of lockers. In Private Function, when extra authentication is required, the lock can be programmed to unlock when two authorised cards are presented within 5 seconds of each other. An RCA Audit Card can be used to read an individual lock's data, and then uploaded to the software when presented to the card reader.
The KL1100 RFID is straightforward to install and a simple retrofit to the popular KL1000 footprint. It is easy to operate and features a powered latch which enables intuitive 'push shut' closing, enhancing the customer experience.
The KL1100 RFID is a stylish keyless lock that gives any locker or environment an elegant, contemporary feel. www.codelocks.co.uk
