Digital cabinet and locker locks: new technology, new applications

Data-image-netcode_MedNew NetCode from Codelocks allows users to generate access codes from a remote location.

Over the years, technology has significantly improved the performance of the battery-operated digital lock making it increasingly more sophisticated. One innovation improving the way in which access permissions are managed is the ability to issue codes remotely.
Codelocks has launched a new secure web-based application called NetCode that allows time-sensitive access codes to be generated for an individual or group of KitLock electronic locks, all from a remote location.

The application is particularly useful for field service managers granting temporary access to machinery or equipment locked inside cabinets or enclosures, so that authorized personnel can gain access unaccompanied.

NetCode enabled digital locks are also ideal for use with courier drop boxes or short- to medium-term locker rentals, where the access code is only needed for a specific order or length of time.

Using the NetCode portal, lock owners can generate a code and send it directly to the person needing access via an SMS text message or email. The locks are activated on the NetCode portal before they are installed at a remote site. Then lock owners can create time-sensitive access codes from any browser-capable, internet-enabled device, removing the need for them to be physically present at the time access is required.

The lock costs $77 (ex. 10% GST) and is available to purchase online at: The registration of up to ten locks is free of charge. For more than ten locks, a small annual service fee applies.
