While cash withdrawals are made by customers with individual cards and PINs, service personnel who access the back of an ATM have traditionally used a lock combination, sometimes the same one for anyone accessing the machine. Bank employees, cash replenishers, technical service reps, repair personnel - all using the same combination to open an ATM safe that typically holds tens of thousands of dollars in cash! That's serious temptation even for the most honest employees.
The Cencon ATM Cash Vault Security System from Kaba Mas is designed to combat insider theft from ATMs through the combined use of lock hardware, systems software and Smart Keys™. Cencon offers total access control and accountability with its One Time Combination™ feature. The One Time Combination is dispatched from a central location and cannot be reused at a later date, thus eliminating temptation.
Unique software allows you to control and monitor tens, hundreds, even thousands of locks located anywhere in the world - from one central location. Cencon is a revolutionary and cost-effective solution to today's most serious security challenges.
Three Modes of Operation
Designed for First Line Maintenance personnel, the FLM mode of the Cencon lock permits the dispatch center to give a One Time Combination to a technician "on the fly." FLM personnel are each issued a Smart Key and call their dispatch center to request a One Time Combination. Once used, this combination will not function again, thus insuring absolute access control. A Close Seal code will be displayed on the lock's LCD upon the lock closing. When entered into the dispatch center's computer, assures that the Cencon lock is locked and secure.
While permitting the same access control as FLM Mode, Route Mode additionally permits pre-defined routes for armored cash replenishers. Route personnel are each issued a Smart Key and a route of locks may be assigned permitting route personnel to access a series of locks without contacting their dispatch center. Route personnel can either call their dispatch center at the end of the shift to report the close seals, or the close seals can be read from the key by the Cencon software.
Bank Mode is designed for bank personnel who may need access to the Cencon system lock but do not wish to operate through a dispatch center. Smart Keys and static combinations are issued to bank personnel who may unlock the Cencon lock at any time. An internal audit trail tracks all activity of bank personnel just as it does for FLM and Route personnel. Kaba Mas Cencon software permits bank administrators to manage Bank Mode on site. Bank users may be added or deleted and audit trails may be downloaded from the lock.
A user needs both a One Time Combination and a Smart Key to access the lock.
One Time Combination
A One Time Combination is dispatched each time access is required to a container controlled by a Cencon lock.
An encrypted electronic key is used as a personal identifier, programming device or to transfer data between system components.
The Close Seal acts as an electronic signature, stamping the date and time showing the lock was locked and secured.
When combined with a connection to an alarm system, entering a special "Duress" Combination will automatically send a silent alarm to your security facility while allowing the service technician entry to the lock. This helps ensure the safety of your personnel and the commodities you protect.
The Cencon lock comes standard with the capability to connect an alarm system to monitor the position of the lock bolt. Upon retraction or extension of the bolt, the signal can arm or disarm the alarm.
Alarm Shunt Operation
Cencon is compatible with most alarm systems. Entering the correct One Time Combination and presenting the assigned Smart Key deactivates the alarm.
The Cencon system records all lock activity, more than 1000 events in some cases, and permits easy downloading of the information via a Smart Key for generating detailed audit reports.
Cencon has the same footprint as conventional mechanical combination locks, making the retrofit process easy and inexpensive.
User Friendly Software
Cencon software allows you to control access to all of your containers with no special wiring. The Windows 7 or higher operating system, Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server interface, makes it simple to install and use on a stand-alone PC, a local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN).
