NetCode Explained

 

The smart way to generate access codes.

Codelocks Smart Locks and the KitLock KL1000 NetCode utilise techonology that allows you to create date and time-sensitive temporary access codes: NetCodes. NetCodes can be generated quickly and easily via the K3 Connect App1, the online Codelocks Connect Portal or by utilising the Codelocks Connect API. Once generated, NetCodes can be shared via email or SMS2, and will expire at their set time - ideal for visiting service engineers, delivery personnel and short / medium-term locker rental.

 

No WiFi required.

NetCode works by using time and date based algorithms, synced between the lock and software upon initial programming. No WiFi is required - this helps our customers to generate NetCodes and manage access control wherever they are, even in the most remote locations.
