Seattle Water Facility Takes CyberLock System

Videx Inc. : 17 May, 2012  (Application Story)
Electronic locking system with programmable and trackable keys is being used at a large public utility site which supplies water in the Seattle area
The CyberLock system helps secure access to Seattle Public Utilities’ 12,500 acre land that supplies water to 1.4 million people in the greater Seattle, Washington area. Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) uses the CyberLock system of electronic locks and programmable keys to track multiple personnel and control access to physical assets.

In order to meet Federal guidelines for securing critical infrastructure, SPU has installed CyberLock electronic padlocks on remote watershed gates, storage units, and utility sheds. Darian Davis, SPU Security and Watershed Protection Manager, says, “CyberLock is an important part of SPU’s security plan-of-action that enables our watershed to meet Federal guidelines for securing critical infrastructure.”

The CyberLock system allows SPU additional control over the access of contractors, employees, and researchers throughout the watershed. “Being able to program each person’s electronic key to open specific locks that allow them to do their job is a real benefit. Also, the audit trail the locks and keys provide is a good investigative tool when there is an incident on watershed property,” adds Davis.

Videx, Inc. will be showcasing the CyberLock system of electromechanical lock cylinders, smart padlocks, and programmable keys at the AWWA show in Dallas, Texas, June 10-13, booth #1234.
