An electronic key management system is a smart safe used for key storage at a company, which automatically controls access to keys. The system is designed for organizations with high-level security requirements (banks, government agencies, educational institutions), as well as for companies that need to control access to keys (hostels, hotels, recreation facilities, etc.). Modern automated electronic key management systems allow their owners to control access to facilities and rooms.
The operating principle of the system is quite simple. Each key is locked in a separate slot or cell.
Keys can be accessed by means of a pin-code, an RFID card or biometric verification (fingerprint or retina scanning). Once the user is verified, the relevant key is unlocked, and the unlocked cell number is displayed on the screen. When the key is returned, the system scans its individual tag and locks the cell door.
The advantages of automatic key management systems:
The system is operable round the clock, even in case of blackouts, and can be integrated with other security systems.
