Problem and solution

A preventative measure from removing keys off site was needed. This needed to incorporate an electronic solution to reduce man hours, to prioritise work load and eliminate human error After assessing feedback from various industries and companies a system was required to facilitate a KeyWatcher to produce accurate reporting, backed up with preventative measures of keys not being removed from a controlled perimeter. Allocated keys will only allow users to walk off site through an air lock with their key being returned first, to the KeyWatcher. The basics of this function must allow for any customer's needs, such as any individual security applications and any future expansions.

The solution

To bring together recognised market leaders in their industries such as electronic key management systems, installers / suppliers of security hardware and security software. To interface the Keywatcher system with various access control systems, using a frontend database. The area of movement for staff with keys would be defined by the parameters within the building controlled by various access controlled doors.

The results

The electronic integration is intended to work as a self-running, stand-alone system allowing staff more time to concentrate on their own duties. The only time intervention is needed is when an alarm is actuated requiring attention to deal with any issues raised, Through the database provided it can offer various security parameters that can be applied to users, keys, bunches of keys, time restraints, reservations and notes etc.
