  • What is patented key control?

    To understand patented key control you should ask yourself two questions. Do you or your employees ever loan someone your keys and do you mind if they copy them without your knowledge?

  • How do you program NEXGEN XT cylinders
    and keys?

    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. It is very simple and intuitive.
