An ordinary key becomes an extraordinary Smart Key when it is linked through a 1/8" stainless steel u-ring, which is fastened into a special, color-coded ABS plastic housing.
Smart Keys are virtually tamper-proof; the only way to remove the key is cut the u-ring or the key itself. What's unique about the Smart Key's plastic housing is that it contains a Dallas smart chip.
This chip allows KeyWatcher to electronically-monitor the Smart Key according to:
Time and Date
Key Number and Key Name
The Smart Key's smart chip and wide array of colors makes tracking your company keys simple and efficient, eliminating sloppy tags and labels. Smart Keys turn unreliable, old-fashioned guesswork into clear and concise accountability.
How it works
When a Smart Key is inserted into a key slot within a KeyWatcher or KeyBank cabinet, the chip data is read and then recorded after a key is properly accessed or returned.
Users can only access keys from the cabinets with a proper User Code, as designated by their security mangers. Users can be restricted to only have access to keys in which they are allowed.
Smart Keys help to make the KeyBank and KeyWatcher easy-to-use key control systems. The Random Key Return feature allows users to return keys to any open location of the cabinet and the system will remember the new location for that key.
This process avoids the confusion and error of misplacement of keys upon return -- a real time saver and convenience to each user.
Enhance the capabilities of the system with Key-Pro Software
These two key management systems are perfect as stand-alone devices or in combination with Morse Watchmans Key-Pro III Software. This software greatly enhances the capabilities of the system.
The KeyWatcher and KeyBank can work as single key management systems or can be configured with multiple cabinets to hold hundreds of keys.
Designed with scalability in mind, each additional unit can be controlled by a single console and monitored by the advanced Key-Pro software. Now, it’s easy to expand as your needs grow.
Australian Security Technology | Asset Management
If you're looking to protect your physical assets, you can't go past Australian Security Technology Pty Ltd (ASTPL). We provide our customers the choice of a number of physical asset protection methods and systems. We don't provide a "one size fits all" solution, but provide you with a tailor-made package, with your specific needs in mind.
Starting from the control and management of keys, as the Australasian distributor for Morse Watchman products, we have not only been working with our principals to supply solutions that fulfill, if not, exceed our customer's expectations, but have also been involved in the development and improvement of these products.
New innovations allow the use of biometric and other high end access solutions to be incorporated with KeyWatcher products. These innovations were developed in Australia.
The latest of which, KeyWatcher Touch with a 7” touchscreen, provides the user an easier-to-use interface, plus many great features. With KeyAnywhere feature, the user can locate which KeyWatcher a specific key is in, or determine who has it out, with the new KeyFind feature.
KeyWatcher Key Management systems can now be seamlessly included into existing high end systems, without the need of a separate KeyWatcher system on top of your current network. Existing security and building management systems, including biometric, card access, and so on, with KeyWatcher systems installed, will operate and show any events involving the latter system as simply one other event to watch out for, using KeyPro Plus.
As well, ASTPL has been instrumental in the development of other tracking systems for physical assets, especially the Australian-made AssetTracker, which uses barcode technology to keep track of asset movement and storage.
Our offering is so wide that a solution to your particular requirements will be worked out in discussion with you. And, your particular solution will be made to work for your special requirements.
