AccessPilot software screenshots
TimePilot created its AccessPilot software to give you absolute control over the
CrossOver X15, X25,
X45 and Door Controller. Using the software, you can:
- Set up iButtons for employees.
- Set the electronic clock that resides inside each lock.
- Order individual locks to lock or unlock at various times.
- Program the locks to allow access only to certain employees.
- Program the lock to only allow access at certain times of day or certain
- See who used the lock—or tried to use the lock—and when the event
The software comes as a part of our
Lock Management Kit.
One kit is necessary to use all the features of our CrossOver Locks,
no matter how many locks you own. The software is simple to use and comes with an illustrated manual.

manual in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. You can also view and download CrossOver
lock installation templates by clicking
The software's main screen (above) lists users down the left side and
the locks on the right. To get more information about a user or a lock,
just double-click it. When you double-click a lock, the Lock Properties
screen appears (shown below).
In this screenshot, you can see the name of the lock and its location
at the top of the screen. At the bottom is a list of all users. The dot
in the first column indicates that a user's iButton will operate a lock.
Want to give another user permission? Just click the empty space next to
their name to make the dot appear and transfer the change to the lock.
Want to delete permission? Just click the dot to remove it and transfer
You can see that four of the six users have been given permission to
operate the lock. The screen shows that:
- The first user with permission is Brian Estok. He uses an
iButton to operate the lock (as opposed to a keycode) and his access
is not limited by date ("No Expiration"—see the fourth user,
below, for an
explanation). His daily access is limited to the Night Shift, which
has been set up by his supervisor to give employees access Monday
through Friday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. If he tries to operate the lock
at any other time, he will be refused.
- The second and third users with permission, Mike Hanlon and
Sheree Womack, also use iButtons and are not limited by date. They
work the day shift, which has been set up to give them access only
Tuesday through Saturday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
- The fourth user, Tim Hanlon, works for an outside company that cleans
ductwork. He needs access to the building, but not unlimited access.
A supervisor issued him an iButton and has set up a Date Restriction
called "Duct Cleaning" that limits his access to the lock to between
October 21 at 8 a.m. and October 23 at 5 p.m. He'd better get the
job done on time, because after 5 p.m., his iButton will not longer
operate the lock! At the end of the job, Tim will turn in his
iButton and the supervisor will re-program it for use by another
employee or contractor.
Each lock keeps a list of who tapped their iButton to it (whether
they had permission or not) and when. Supervisors can download that
list, called an audit trail, whenever necessary. Below is a sample:
This audit trail, from a lock called "HR Storeroom," shows the
times an iButton was tapped to the lock on August 11, 2009. According to
the first line, Sheree Womack tapped her iButton to the lock at 10:36:59
a.m., the lock unlocked and then re-locked itself. Successful operations
are displayed in green.
Six seconds later, Doug Marsh tapped his iButton to the lock. He did
not have permission to operate the lock, so it denied him access. The
unsuccessful operation is displayed in red.
At the bottom of the screenshot, at 10:38:36 a.m., someone tried to
access the lock and was denied. It is listed as "User Unknown" because
the person's iButton is not listed in the AccessPilot database as a
AccessPilot software comes as a part of the
CrossOver Lock Management Kit
and is the only iButton lock software that's certified for Microsoft's
Windows 7 operating system.
