Key to Security

Morse Watchmans has launched a product to help ensure that keys are properly secured when not in use and that access is controlled yet convenient. Called the KeyWatcher Touch System, it is designed as a scalable solution with easy-to-use, time-saving features.

Each key stored in the tamper-proof key cabinet is locked into place using the patented SmartKey system, and authorized users can only access keys for which they have been pre-programmed to use. All transactions are automatically recorded in the system SQL database to ensure accountability.

An easy-to-use interface with large buttons offers step-by-step instructions, and keys available to a user are displayed on the 7-inch full-color touch screen. The illuminated key slot quickly identifies the requested key, and if not found, the system will locate which KeyWatcher Touch cabinet the specified key is in, or determine who has it out and when it will become available. Reservations and notes can also be entered at the KeyWatcher Touch screen.

Keys can be returned to any KeyWatcher Touch cabinet in the system, and random return capability (i.e., return to any key slot in the cabinet) makes the procedure faster and more convenient.

Suitable for use in any size or type of facility, the KeyWatcher Touch additionally features USB connectivity and built-in Ethernet for online monitoring. KeyWatcher Touch users can create alerts for specific users, keys or events, and select exactly who will receive each alert and how (e.g., email or text). Every alert is fully customizable.

Additional conveniences include shared database capability and an audio output jack. KeyWatcher Touch also allows full interoperability with other security systems.
