There’s a better way to manage your keys!
Access control is great for tracking and managing entry through doors, but what about the doors that only use keys? With products from Traka, you can securely store and manage access to keys or anything else that can go on a key ring. Best yet, you can control them with all of the same features of your access control system such as:
- Allow access to only certain keys for certain people
- Allow access to certain keys for only specific times of day
- Set curfews on keys so they aren’t out too long
- Send alerts when keys are out too long
