Key Watcher Illuminated

The Product of Intelligent Engineering

The KeyWatcher Key Management System provides a new sophisticated design and improved access control. Its illuminated key storage system makes finding keys a cinch while mandating accountability.
Built into a rugged steel cabinet with highly illuminated key slots, the improved design makes it easier to locate keys and maximize wall space. The exterior design of the cabinet has been enhanced to blend in with today’s office environments, while the key control system seamlessly controls and monitors keys.

Morse Watchmans engineered the keypad and control console of the new KeyWatcher system to be extremely user-friendly and accessible to the handicapped. The aesthetically pleasing, smart design actually helps to reduce wall space, while providing easier access. The KeyWatcher is powered by the same AC electricity available from your wall outlet, and features an emergency back up battery capable of supporting the system for up to 48 hours.

Who controls your keys now? You…or the guy that was hired yesterday?

The KeyWatcher system puts you in control. A User can be limited to particular keys, limited to the number of keys they can have out at any time, and time limits can be established for how long they have the key. You can act on real-time information, contacting over-due Users before they have even had the time to get home and toss those keys on a nightstand. The best way to make policies work is to make people accountable. You cannot manage what you do not control. The KeyWatcher system puts you in control of the keys!

Electronic Key Control with Custom Management Reports

KeyWatcher Illuminated is a modular, scalable integrated key control and management solution that’s designed for interoperability with access control and other systems. It is important to remember that any access control system, and the investment you have placed in it, can be defeated by an unaccounted-for key. The KeyWatcher System is potentially of the most important components of an access-secured facility.
The KeyWatcher Illuminated is customized per application, capable of controlling from as little as 8 keys up to nearly 1500 by adding expansion cabinets and modules. It can be further modified with the addition of Locker Modules for controlling small valuable assets including proximity cards, gas cards, tasers, radios, handguns, laptops, iPods or tactical gear. Larger objects such as tools, weapons, and expensive instruments can be controlled by locating those items in lockers and securing the keys in the KeyWatcher system. KeyWatcher Illuminated is scalable, too, so it can grow as your needs grow.

With KeyWatcher Illuminated, access to the electronic key box and to individual keys is under your complete control. You decide who has permission to remove each key, and with KeyWatcher’s advanced communications capabilities, you always know who removed any key and when it was taken. The system maintains an on-going audit trail of all key transactions. It’s the solution that gives you more value, more storage and more convenient accessibility.

Secure and Vandal-Resistant

With a built-in keypad and up to 2,000 assignable user codes with PINs (Personal Identification Numbers), KeyWatcher provides unmatched flexibility. The system allows security managers the discretion to appoint one of five different levels of access for each employee. In addition, it offers the expandability of interfacing with a variety of access control devices.
The illuminated two line by 16 character screen clearly displays messages and user prompts for a variety of different functions, including removal and replacement of keys. Built using stainless steel, the cabinet is designed to resist abuse and is wired with a tamper- proof mechanism.

The alarm sound emanates from the KeyWatcher and can be wired throughout the facility and other sounding devices. Any PC with speakers running KeyPro software can emit an alarm as well, and alarms can be sent automatically via email to designated managers.

The Integrated Access Control Solution

KeyWatcher is designed for complete interactivity with your other business systems. By opening our protocols to a wide range of integration partners, Morse Watchman’s makes it possible for you to implement connectivity across systems on any level you choose. For example, by integrating your KeyWatcher system with your access control system, your access control system will know which users have keys and which do not. A user who has taken a specific key from KeyWatcher can be denied egress from the facility until the key is returned – and selected management can be alerted via email if a key has not been returned on time.

By engineering KeyWatcher with the ability to communicate across systems, Morse Watchmans helps our customers maintain best-in-breed security solutions without the need to overhaul or replace costly installations.

KeyWatcher has a built-in RS-232 communications port for direct connectivity to printers or other devices, or networked connectivity via Ethernet.
