Codelocks Americas Announces Partnership with Tether Technologies
Posted: November 21, 2019 in Suppliers
IRVINE, CA – Codelocks Inc., a leading access control company that designs and distributes innovative, standalone keyless door locks and access products, announces a strategic partnership with Tether Technologies, a developer and manufacturer of digital tethering solutions for master keys and access cards. The challenge in the industry is to prevent keys from being lost while on the job, Tether Technologies’ focuses on ways to address and resolve human error associated with master key loss.
In 2015 Tether Technologies developed Gravity®, the only industrial-grade, digital tethering device that electronically ties keys to its user to remain in the proximity of the tether. Gravity works by linking cards/keys via an electronic signal to avoid keys being lost from the start. Upon breaching the approximately 20-foot radius – distance may vary depending on the building or wireless interference – Gravity’s unique alarm, vibration and strobe light are triggered to alert users to quickly retrace steps to recover the key unit.
When combined with Key Secure by Codelocks, a key control cabinet that utilizes coded access to authorized persons, it becomes a fully comprehensive solution. The key cabinet will store and manage keys, while Gravity helps to prevent those keys – when removed from the cabinet – from the risk of being misplaced. To connect keys, the user simply presses a button and lifts the Key Unit up and out from the Belt Unit. Once removed, Gravity activates and the Key Unit flashes once, indicating it is now in electronic communication with the Belt Unit.
“We understand the importance of having a complete key management solution, including preventing the potentially extreme cost associated with losing master keys,” states Matt Welty, general manager for Codelocks Inc. “We are committed to this product and uniting both of our key management technologies to help more individuals, campuses and businesses with their security systems.”
“We are excited to partner with Codelocks, a global company that is well-known and respected in the industry,” said Randy Neely, founder of Tether Technologies, Inc. “As the number of lost master keys continues to increase in an array of environments across the country, the joint presence of Codelocks and Gravity will allow this advanced solution to become standard equipment protocol in the world’s largest facilities.”
Codelocks is now an authorized dealer of the Gravity key tether solution.
