  • Power source must be either a 7-amp 12-volt Vehicle DC power supply, a 7-amp 12-volt AC adapter. On-shore power is a backup power source and should be used at the station.
  • Internal 3V lithium ion battery maintains time and date if KeySecure should lose power.
  • When you remove a Knox eKey from a KeySecure 6 or a KnoxDock, a timer starts. When the timer expires, the Knox eKey no longer functions.
  • The timer resets automatically when the Knox eKey is removed from KeySecure 6 or a KnoxDock using a valid PIN code. Activation time is managed through KnoxConnect Management System by Admin.
  • Mutual aid or shared access is supported by sharing lock codes between one or more jurisdictions.
  • Contact Knox to coordinate mutual aid programs.
The Knox eLock Core does not require periodic maintenance. However, as a best practice, Knox recommends inspection of the KnoxBox annually to ensure the operability of the box and the integrity of the contents.
  • KnoxConnect is a cloud-based system using network connections (WiFi or Ethernet) to connect to KeySecure 6.
  • System Administrators can manage users, devices, PIN codes, retrieve audit trail information and create reports from any device using a web browser with internet access.
  • With the Knox eLock System, audit trail collection is automatic when the KeySecure 6 communicates with the cloud via WiFi or Ethernet. KnoxDock communicates Knox eKey audit trails when KnoxDock software is running.
  • When a KeySecure 6 syncs, it sends audit trail information to KnoxConnect then it receives all updates from the KnoxConnect Management System.
  • Basic functionality of the system does not require the Internet. Knox eKeys, Knox eLock Core, and the KeySecure 6 will continue to operate without the Internet.
  • Since the KnoxConnect Management System is web-based, administrative functions, such as adding or deleting users, will not be accessible when the Internet is down.
