  1. Robert from Pennsylvania

    The E-Plex 5700 was easy to configure and allowed us to centrally manage all of our sites under one platform. We have been using it for a few months now without any issues and minimal maintenance. Adding’ deleting’ or modifying users is simple and involves little effort. We’re looking to expand to our remaining sites. The folks at GoKeyless were helpful and ensured we had all of the components we needed from the start.

Customer Questions & Answers

  1. Q Can the locks be programed remotely? answer now
    Asked by Bryan on February 23, 2024 12:18 PM
    Answered by the admin

    The E-Plex 5700 locks can be programmed with a wireless gateway. However, these must be on site near the lock with the same internet connection the PC is running off of to be able to communicate with the lock from your PC.

  2. Answered by the admin

    The interior handle is a passage handle and will always allow free egress without the need of a PIN code or proximity card to unlock the door from the inside. 

  3. Answered by the admin

    They certainly can be! Each user can be assigned either a PIN code, a proximity card, or both!

  4. Answered by the admin

    This lock supports proximity cards with formats between 26 to 84-bit. You are able to enroll multiple cards with different bit formatting at the same time. 

  5. Answered by the admin

    Not at all! This model includes simple installation instructions for end-users. Please keep in mind that additional holes may need to be drilled through your door for proper mounting (template is included). 

  6. Answered by the admin

    The factory default master code for these units is '12345678'. The reset instructions to restore this code can be found on page 13 of your installation manual if needed.

    The E5700 lock works with most standard Weigand 125kHz 26 bit cards. We would need to know your card format in order to know for sure. GoKeyless is a full service operation, you can send us your card that you have currently and we will test the format for you to confirm its compatibility.
