Add the feature to world-leading KeyWatcher key management systems and you have formidable combination.
Australian Security Technology Pty Ltd (ASTPL) managing director, Jason Leach announced the release of KeyWatcher systems with biometric entry devices from PeopleKey.
Designed and manufactured in Australia, PeopleKey's finger scanners have found excellent acceptance in the market since the company started in 1999.
PeopleKey's Fingerscanner/Fingerprint Reader range use integrated software from different industry partners, as well as the company's proprietary software solutions.
"The combination of biometrics security with the functionality of asset management provides users with a tool for security tasks like access control, key management, asset management and so on," Leach said.
KeyWatcher systems from Morse Watchmans, exclusively marketed in Australasia by ASTPL, are modular, scalable, integrated key control and management solutions designed for interoperability with access control systems.
"The use of PeopleKey biometric finger scanner adds to KeyWatcher's flexibility by preventing buddy swapping or observed PIN entry," Frank Bruce, managing director of PeopleKey, said.
KeyWatcher allows the user complete control to each KeyWatcher unit, which not only holds keys but can be supplied with components like card slots and lockers to hold small assets that need to be secured.
The advanced communications capability of KeyWatcher means that the user always knows who removes a key and when this is taken.
The modular design allows the user to configure a system to specific requirements, with the flexibility to change modules where and when needed. KeyWatcher has the ability to expand and hold up to 2000 keys.
The system can be retrofitted to work with the user's current access systems, as well as facility management and other high-end security systems.
Both Leach and Bruce look forward to growing their joint systems to better serve the needs of their users in the Australian market.
