Morse Watchmans keeps one thing in mind – designing innovative products which meet the customers’ needs.
Key management has always been a concern in businesses around the world, especially in larger industries such as hospitals, hotels, and correctional facilities. In the early 1990s, Morse Watchmans realized that there was an increasing need for companies to successfully track their sensitive keys. With Morse Watchmans already having been a leader in the security industry with a sound business relationship and the trust of so many, companies were not afraid to share their key management problems and concerns. They learned that companies were storing their irreplaceable master keys on pegs inside locked strongboxes and that many of these same companies employed full time workers to distribute keys and maintain reports 24 hours, 7 days a week. They were also made aware of how mistakes were made and how employees took advantage of this system. Keys that were lost or stolen were not always accountable. This manual system lacked the security and flexibility companies needed.
In 1993, Morse Watchmans, Inc. developed The Key Watcher ™, the first stand-alone key management system that electronically released keys to authorized users. This system allowed for keys to be stored in a smart storage cabinet that accounted for each user by access code, time and date. Keys were physically locked in place and only released to authorized users. A patented feature called Random Key Return was also implemented, which allowed users to return keys back to any open location within the cabinet, therefore, protecting sensitive keys from pattern location placement.
As the popularity of this system began to grow, customers came forward and expressed features they wanted to see. Based on their requests, new components were added and expanded the system ability to accommodate over 1,800 key locations and 2000 users. There are also optional features like durable polycarbonate cabinet doors, which enable you to view the keys inside. More importantly, the Key Watcher is a stand-alone key management system that can connect directly to your printer, PC or over a companies LAN (tcp/ip) to give powerful on-demand management reports with all the pertinent key tracking data. Several thousand systems are in place in institutions, government buildings and the private sector.
As our company moved into the 21st century, our systems continued to be the very best and full featured available. In 2004, we introduced our next generation KeyWatcher system – The KeyWatcher III. These systems included changes that increased user and key capacity, integrated card reader interface, multi-user and non-random options, biometrics integration and new KeyPro III Key Management Software.
The year 2007 ushered in even more enhancements for theKeyWatcher and KeyBank lines of key management systems. The key management systems now accommodate customizable modules to accommodate other valuables that require controlled access. Spacious lockers hold larger items such as prescriptions, small firearms, tools, wallets and wireless phones, while thin slots are ideal for credit, debit, gas and key cards. Our product designers added illuminated key slots to make retrieving and returning keys easier. Our software engineers also improved the KeyPro III with new features, including Priority Email Alerts that keep security managers informed of the whereabouts of Smart Keys.
2011 was the year of the Touch. We launched the KeyWatcher Touch, an even more advanced version of the classic KeyWatcher Illuminated system with a large, convenient touchscreen interface. This introduction was followed closely by the launch of the KeyBank Touch, bringing ease-of-use to the KeyBank market as well.
