Morse Watchmans demonstrates asset control systems at ASIS 2010

Large lockers allow efficient management of valuables


Dallas, TX (October 12, 2010) – At ASIS this year, Morse Watchmans is demonstrating a three-cabinet suite SmartKey ® Asset Control Locker System that provides customers with a wider array of options for storing and controlling assets. The configuration on display features a laptop locker, a radio locker and a single module personal item locker, allowing larger sized valuable items to be managed as efficiently as keys.

“The ability to track and control items such as PCs, cash trays and other valuables is a critical step in ensuring a comprehensive security system,” said Fernando Pires, VP Sales and Marketing, Morse Watchmans. “Our large cabinet lockers, which can be custom configured, offer a reliable, cost-effective and easy to implement asset protection solution to address this important security application.”

The three-cabinet configuration is controlled by a single console and access to the modules is gained by entering an authorized code on the keypad. Up to 2,000 codes can be programmed, or, alternatively, the system can be designed for access by identification access cards or by biometric fingerprints. Its rugged stainless steel construction is complemented by an on-board alarm system that will sound if the unit is tampered with or if incorrect codes are repeatedly entered.

The system has a built-in RS-232 communications port for direct connectivity to printers or other devices, or networked connectivity via Ethernet. When used with the Morse Watchmans Key-Pro ® Software, permission levels for various user codes can be established as well as an audit trail for detailed reporting activities. Items can be returned to any open locker but if they are not returned, the Key-Pro Software can send an e-mail alert to the system manager. When the system is integrated with an access control system, alerts can inform management if someone tries to leave the building without returning an item taken from a SmartKey Locker.
