Facts about Virtual Central Lock

Access groups

  • You can create access groups and add relevant members (Keys, Locks, IP addresses, network ranges or MAC addresses) by drag and drop.
  • Members of the same access group can communicate freely, and members can belong to several access groups.

Virtual LAN

  • Virtual Central Lock supports Virtual LANs enabling adding workstations or servers from one or more networks connected to the VCL LAN into an access group.
  • You may have different networks defined per customer, or you may want to separate your office network from production network, and arrange remote access to these networks differently.


  • With virtual platforms, it is possible to achieve a very high level of redundancy and fault-tolerance where failover time is measured in seconds.
  • Because it’s virtual, it can be deployed in your office network, in leading cloud services AWS or Azure, or anywhere else where you prefer.
  • Supports up to thousands concurrent VPN connections from Keys, Locks or Mobile Clients.
