Electronic key management systems

Importance of Key Management

Each individual facility may have different access control systems in place, but there will often be many keys for accessing plantrooms, individual control panels and bypassing electronic systems in case of emergency.

As an FM you take responsibility for these keys so managing them effectively is important. The consequences of any misplaced, lost or stolen key whilst a security issue, also has financial and affects day-to-day operation. Electronic key management systems provide an auditable record of all key cabinet use, placing the accountability of the keys on the person who has them. The system runs automatically meaning staff whose time was spent managing keys can be used more efficiently. You can even assign one-time use pins to issue keys to ad-hoc sub-contractors.

  • Issue keys for one time use without being on site
  • Protect keys from being accessed by unauthorised personnel
  • Make staff accountable for their actions whilst using keys
  • Track keys
  • Prevent keys leaving a building

Vehicle identification (AVI)

If you want to set an overall positive impression and meet your clients’ expectations, then managing the facilities vehicle entry points is just as important as managing inside the facility.

Whether you have a staff car park, drop off/pick up point, a warehouse entrance or even manage a private car park facility, preventing unauthorised vehicles using them can be difficult. Our AVI solution means that only vehicles that have been issued tamper-proof windshield stickers or ISO cards will trigger the barrier or gate to open. The system logs the tags used to enter to provide you with auditable records of all vehicle entries.

  • Reliable and weather-resistant method of identifying vehicles
  • Range of tags to suit different needs
  • Works as a stand-alone system or integrated into access control
  • More reliable than number plate recognition
  • Fast and secure
