How do you program NEXGEN XT cylinders
All access information is programmed in the NEXGEN Key (only key blacklists and audit information is kept on the cylinder). Programming is accomplished with the NEXGEN Security Manager software package (NSM) and a USB connected programming cradle and involves assigning a key to a user and applicable user groups, adding a time/date schedule, then clicking the "send to key" button in the software.
