Lockwood's Cortex is a commercial grade digital lockset that offers a standalone electronic access solution that can also be easily integrated to existing systems.
Innovative locking coupled with the durability and quality that is synonymous with the Lockwood brand certifies Cortex as the premium choice for intelligent locking. Moreover, Cortex is the first Australasian digital lockset to be fire rated for 530 latch and Lockwood mortice variants and always has free egress from the inside.
The Lockwood Cortex features ultra-smooth lever action provided by the ergonomic Lever: 77A. Compliant with AS1428.1-2009 (Disabled accessible complaint levers); Cortex has undergone severe vandal testing and has a strength rating of up to SL8.
Compared to other digital locks on the market, Cortex offers a 20% reduction in standby power consumption and 50% reduction on operational usage. One set of batteries may give you up to 40,000 operations using the key card entry method.
The ultra-durable touch screen is embedded with touch sensors giving real-time feedback in the form of subtle audible tones. These capacitive touch buttons have no moving parts so they can’t wear to reveal the user's secret PIN.
Underneath each button is an ultra-bright LED, ideal for high and low light conditions.
And finally on top of all this, lies a highly sensitive card reader for the users that prefer a fast access method — with a high security key card credential. The card reader functions on the high security iClass card format or the ever popular Mifare format.
The Lockwood Cortex has been engineered for ease of use without compromising on the level of security provided. The unit’s advanced features include various levels of security from basic PIN code entry to advanced Dual (PIN + card) entry for ultra-high security applications. The lock function can be as basic or advanced as needed, if a user needs a simple one code entry it can be set up within 15 seconds. However, if a user wanted to program multiple users with different codes or allow a temporary visitor to enter, then the easy to follow instructions will guide them through it. In addition, Cortex is programmable so that the lock can remain locked or unlocked for any given specified date or period of time (as decided by the homeowner).
