Key Management and Secure Storage Systems
Key cabinet

Do you know who is using the key now?

Keys represent access rights to different facility areas, cars, etc. From security point of view it is very important that only the right people have access to the specific keys or access cards.
As such keys and valuables have to be stored in a safe place.

Who did use the key at a particular time?

This raises more questions around resposibility and accountability when something happens. Inadequate security enhances the risk of crime.

In case important keys are stored in a messy, labeled key box, and key withdrawals and returns are traced on a manual sign-out sheet or Excel sheet, it takes far lot of time to get the appropriate information, while nobody can prevent taking keys off the cabinet, and you do not know if the key is actually in the cabinet or not. (insufficient record keeping)

However an electronic key tracer system with embedded computer and key management software provides this information instantly.

Since every key position is locked by electronic engine driven latches, it is impossible to pick up keys, if the identification process fails.

The registered user needs to identify himself or herself prior to logging in to the cabinet either by PIN-code, RFID or NFC proximity card or by biometric fingerprint scanner or palm scanner.

The key control cabinet’s software will log:

  • unathorized login attempts,
  • successful logins,
  • key withdrawals and returns,
  • sabotage attempts,
  • user management events,
  • every step made in the cabinet is logged and can be monitored remotely

Key Tracking System Security

  • Prevent unathorized access to keys or electronic lockers, compartments
  • Real-time asset control – check everything online
  • Send immediate alarm in case of sabotage or not returned overdue key
  • Supervise remotely all events recorded in the key cabinet
  • Key tracking system indicates in no time which key is out and who holds it
  • Should the key get lost, it is uniquely identified by its RFID tag and it cannot be matched to another key storage cabinet
  • In power failure situations the key cabinet still works up to 48 hours* thanks to built-in intelligent power backup system
    (*depending on usage frequency)
  • Should the key get lost, it is uniquely identified by its RFID tag and it cannot be matched to another key storage cabinet
