5387 ixalo Software KeyManager

Master key system management and programming software

Always on top of things: throughout the years, the BKS KeyManager, constantly refined in collaboration with our customers, has proven itself a competent management software for master key systems. The software does full justice to the trend of combining mechanical, mechatronic and electronic cylinders in one cost-effective overall system: all cylinders, whether electronical or mechanical, can be managed with one software. The intuitive user interface enables you to programme the cylinders conveniently, from simple YES/NO programming through to time-controlled authorisations or special functions. Data is transmitted either offline by means of the programming device or online to ixalo cylinders via computer network and radio.

Features and benefits provided by the BKS KeyManager:

  • Comprehensive administration of mechanical, mechatronic and electronic cylinders and readers with one user interface.

  • Administration of distributed keys and transponders

  • Easy programming of ixalo products based on a locking scheme matrix

  • Display and printing of mechanical and electronic access rights

  • Intuitive user interface

  • Password-protected event query (including 'four-eye-principle' control function)

  • Network-capable (client/server applications)

  • Electronic acknowledgement of receipt by means of signature pad possible

  • Modern browser interface

  • Access rights can be administered using mobile devices (e.g., tablets)

  • Network-capable (client browser/web server) (replace existing line)

  • Software updates are installed centrally on the web server instead of each individual client

  • Supported technologies: RFID MIFARE©

  • Option: online module to integrate radio-capable cylinders, bus couplers, and radio modules

  • Option: client module to administrate several clients within one master key system

Master key system management
Management moduleWith this module you can manage mechanical, mechatronic and electronic master key systems. Distributed keys and transponders as well as installed cylinders are appropriately recorded, e.g. to give evidence to insurance companies when keys are lost.
Client moduleThis module allows splitting of master key systems into different clients. Each client (e.g. tenant of an office building) can only manage the keys/cylinders and programme the SE transponders/SE access points allocated to him.
