Labor Saver #6

We featured a variety of Labor Saver articles on our blog including Mag Locks with Built-in Cameras, Hinge Tools, and more.

Today, we learn about the HES K100 wireless cabinet lock with Aperio Technology.

Wireless Cabinet Lock Series
Add cabinet security without adding another credential

The HES K100 wireless cabinet lock with Aperio Technology makes it easy and cost effective to bring real-time access control to cabinets and drawers where audit trail and monitoring are increasingly critical. It uses local wireless communication between the lock and an Aperio hub to connect to an access control system, eliminating the cost and difficulty of physically wiring access control to the cabinet. The K100 expands the reach of access control systems to drawers, cabinets and lockers through the use of existing ID badges.
