Morse Watchmans Presents New, Enhanced Product Suite at ISC West.

Powerful Lineup Supported by 100 Years of Experience.Las Vegas, NV (April 2, 2008) – For more than a century, Morse Watchmans has been providing customers and industry professionals with quality products backed by innovative design and technology. At this week’s ISC West trade show, the company is showcasing the intelligence built into its product lineup, which facilitates a new level of system integration functionality and IP connectivity.

“The new theme for Morse Watchmans, ‘think inside the box’, relates directly to the engineering that has gone into our advanced access control and key management products,” said Fernando Pires, VP Sales and Marketing, Morse Watchmans. “We have built on our strong heritage of reliable, durable and innovative products to create a product portfolio that reflects our commitment to keeping our brand at the forefront of security technology.”

Delivering a complete integrated access control solution, Morse Watchmans’ KeyWatcher® provides a Smart Key locking mechanism with built-in memory chip for each individual key; data from the chip is stored when a key is inserted into a key slot. Illuminated key storage simplifies the identification and location of the correct key, while the Random Key Return feature allows users to return keys back to any open location within the cabinet. Integrated communications allow the system to send priority email alerts to security managers regarding removal or return of Smart Keys.

Modular in design, KeyWatcher has a built-in key pad and can also be integrated with various access control methods such as biometric fingerprint readers and magnetic or proximity card readers. The system can accommodate up to 2000 codes with PINs (personal identification numbers).

Data management has also moved forward with Morse Watchmans’ KeyPro Management Software. The most recent upgrade to the software, on display at ISC West, is the KeyPro’s Scheduler. This upgrade automatically downloads all data to a secure PC, allowing system managers to sort and analyze information to maintain maximum control of access and security issues.

Morse Watchmans’ powerful PowerCheck® Guard Tour System is another example of their innovative design and functionality capabilities. The hand-held data recorders, which guards use to check into key stations while on rounds, allow the guards to input building safety information directly to the recorder while on-site rather than filling out paper work at the end of the tour. In addition, the Auto Pilot feature prompts guards to visit the next station, and it can be programmed for random tour sequences for added security measures.

The PowerCheck Guard Tour System also includes the Tour-Pro™ Data Sorting Software which converts the data recorder information into custom reports. Developed by Morse Watchmans, the software also allows for programming the data recorder and managing files.

“The company’s products are only part of the story,” said Pires. “We are equally proud of our reputation for providing outstanding customer service. Our customers know and trust the brand name and what stands behind it.”
