KeyWatcher key control systems, now available from Australian Security Technology , can now be added to existing high end security and building management networks, without the need of setting up a separate system. The Australian-developed KW Exchange software allows the seamless retrofit of KeyWatcher systems to high end card access systems from Cardax and biometric-based systems from Biometric Innovations.
According to Australian Security Technology’s Jason Leach, the software allows KeyWatcher to be integrated to most high end systems. Local field trials and early market acceptance of KW Exchange has allowed us to market the system overseas through their principals, Morse Watchmans.
Integration of KeyWatcher to an existing security network means that all events highlighted by KeyWatcher appear on monitors already run by installed systems. This saves the user the cost of installing an additional monitoring system.
Security personnel now only have to look out for KeyWatcher events in the existing security management system—there’s no need to refamiliarise and re-train on a separate system.
Another predominant feature is the ease of retrofit installations. This provides users with existing KeyWatcher systems another good reason to upgrade to the new KW Exchange software and with minimum cost get the real benefits of the product.
The loss of keys results in a lot hassle and the possibility of loss or vandalism with the compromise of building security. When one considers the need to change locks, make and re-issue new duplicate keys and so on, the addition of KeyWatcher makes a lot of sense.
KeyWatcher systems can hold keys of almost any size and as many as 2000 in one system, whilst allowing up to five levels of access for each staff member.
