Vending maching cyberlocks withstand Hurrican Katrina.

Videx Inc. : 12 July, 2007  (New Product)
CyberLock electronic locks were fitted to New Orleans vending machines and remained operational after prolonged submersion.
CyberLock electronic lock cylinders were put to an extreme test during Hurricane Katrina. Many vending machines belonging to Whitener Snacks in New Orleans were under water for three weeks. During clean-up after the storm, they were amazed to find the CyberLocks on machines that had been submerged in mud and water were still working. Andy Hilverda, Vice President of Videx, says, "CyberLocks are designed to withstand the harshest conditions, and although surviving a hurricane goes beyond what we envisioned, CyberLock certainly proved to be more than up to the task."

Henry Guste, Chief Operating Officer of Whitener Snacks dba Refreshment Solutions, says, "We researched all the options out there and decided to go with CyberLock because we needed the flexibility it offers. We were experiencing serious shortages of products from our machines. The audit trail is very important to us. With CyberLock we are able to monitor who is getting into our machines, and when. The system allows us to limit our drivers' access to the machines to given times. For added security we have a CyberLock cylinder in the deadbolt on the door to our Money Room and have several CyberLock padlocks on our warehouse. We are pleased with the system, and recommend CyberLock for companies that are experiencing the problems we were having."

With CyberLock, mechanical lock hardware can be quickly converted to a high-security electronic lock simply by replacing the existing lock cylinder with the CyberLock electronic cylinder. CyberLocks cannot be picked and the keys cannot be duplicated. Each key contains permissions on what locks the key can open, with a schedule of days and times it will open those locks. Each time the key opens a lock, a record is stored in both the key and the lock, creating an audit report of events.
