Security technology and applications are evolving at an accelerating rate, driven by the recognition of the need for stronger security measures to create safer environments. Still, in every facility there will be a large number of physical keys that are in use and they must be considered when implementing or upgrading a security system. Managing and controlling access to mechanical keys provides an extra layer of protection for personnel, property and facilities and can help achieve the goal of a safer environment.
Today's cost-effective key management systems offer state-of-the-art technology. They are fully integrated access control systems which communicate across the converged network and provide security management with a wealth of information that can be used to manage and improve the facility’s overall security operation. Systems can be configured to the exact needs of the facility with custom solutions that include multiple key modules, lockers, biometric access (i.e. hand readers, fingerprint recognition) and versatile installation options.
