Key management systems are designed to store and control access to mechanical and other keys used throughout a facility. Keys can only be accessed by pre-authorised individuals with a proper code, badge and/or biometric identification. All access activity is automatically recorded and from this data, management has a complete history of who removed and returned which key and when. The data gathered from the automatic recording of access activity can be used to analyse trends to generate valuable, actionable intelligence for both physical security and business practices.
For security purposes, keys can be controlled according to requirements (i.e. time/day available, personnel, etc.) and management can quickly query what keys have not been returned and when each key will become overdue. And if a key is not returned to the key cabinet as scheduled, an alert can be sent via email or SMS text to appropriate personnel so that immediate action may be taken.
To make key management even more convenient, a mobile app lets authorised users see a wide range of live information and interact remotely with the system.
