BEST Switch Core provides digital access to your existing SFIC core mechanical locks. Ideal for office door, cabinet and display case applications. Easily replace your existing SFIC core, instantly transforming your mechanical lockset into a smart digital lock at a fraction of the cost. This allows for audit trail capability and access control system integration* without replacing every lock you own. Manage credentials instead of keys and always know who is accessing the lock using your smartphone or Bluetooth fob in conjunction with Switch Deck cloud-based software, bridge and Switch Tech mobile app. Unlike keys which can be duplicated or stolen, credentials can be created, assigned and modified easily when employees leave. Switch Cores are designed with no exposed fasteners or openings which prevent vandalism. To operate, simply touch the core to wake, present your credential, core will flash green or red to grant or deny access, then twist to unlock like a physical key, then open the door.

Lockt™ SecureAccess is the only Physical Access Control System designed specifically for Switch™ Tech. Lockt™ SecureAccess provides all of the standard features you would expect from an Access Control System. Lockt™ SecureAccess is easy to use, easy to deploy, and powerful enough to handle your Switch™ Tech focused security needs.

Lockt™ SecureAccess is built directly into the Switch™ Tech ecosystem. By default, the Switch™ Tech bridge does not come pre-installed with Lockt™ SecureAccess. However, when enabled in Switch™ Deck*, the bridge downloads and installs Lockt™ SecureAccess. Once installed, the software runs as a module directly on the bridge itself. Because of this, there is no additional hardware needed to deploy Lockt™ SecureAccess.

Lockt™ SecureAccess ensures that your data is safe and secure. The Switch™ Tech Bridge is hardened to prevent direct access and only communicates as needed over pre-defined ports. All direct access (USB, Keyboard, Mouse, etc.) has been disabled at the hardware level. Lockt™ SecureAccess also ensures all external communications are encrypted. All browser communications to Lock™ SecureAccess are secured via HTTPS. All communications to Switch™ Deck are secured via TLS. Lockt™ SecureAccess can automatically backup your data both internally and to an external SMB compatible source. All backups are encrypted, so your data is secure.

Lockt™ SecureAccess provides you with all the tools you would expect from an Access Control System. Just because Lockt™ SecureAccess comes in a small package, doesn’t mean it isn’t full of big features.

Standard features include:

  • User Management
  • Credential Management
  • Access Level Management
  • Schedules and Holidays
  • Event Monitor
  • Reporting

Multiple Deployment Options

Lockt™ SecureAccess can be deployed in multiple ways, depending on what suits your specific circumstances and requirements.

On Premise

Simply plug your Switch™ Tech bridge into your local network. Claim your Bridge via Switch Deck. From there, you can assign it a static IP address. You then have the freedom to self-manage your Bridge and Lockt™ SecureAccess as you deem necessary.

Partner Hosted / Managed

If you don’t want to manage your own Bridge, you can have your partner host and manage it for you**. Hosted Bridges offer the same functionality as On-Premise*** bridges, but are placed in a secure, off-site location and managed by your integration partner.

Partner Managed Services May Include:

  • Automation of Backups
  • Integrated SSL Certificates
  • Patch / Firmware management

* Lockt™ SecureAccess can only be enabled by requesting activation from Lockt, LLC.
** Hosted services may vary depending on your integration partner.
*** Hosted Bridges do not have direct access to your network resources and therefor are not able to take advantage of future enhancements that may connect to those resources.
