Improving the Odds with Advanced Key Control Technology

If you have been to Las Vegas recently, you will have noticed that construction cranes are once again hovering over the Strip. New projects and casino renovations are underway, providing new business opportunities for the security industry. Among the technologies needed for the regulated gaming market are key control and asset management systems.

To effectively manage casino assets, key control systems store, control and track keys that are used for access to all of the most sensitive and highly secured areas of the casino where money and chips are held, including the slot department and cages. Designed for optimum key security, key control cabinets will not open until the system verifies that the user has permission for the specific key requested. While the key control system automatically records all activity, custom software further allows many types of reports which can run and be delivered automatically to management on a scheduled basis.

Specific features and advanced technology in key control systems also make it easier for casinos to comply with gaming commission regulations pertaining to key control and management. For example, to meet gaming regulations that require the three man rule to access sensitive or restricted key sets, the key control system can be programmed to recognize these keys or key sets and only open the cabinet door and release them once the three required logins are complete and the credentials verified. These measures ensure that no one person, acting alone, can access a sensitive or restricted key and that these keys never leave the property.

Today’s feature rich key control solutions are also network capable, allowing critical information about key control to be communicated across multiple systems throughout the casino. System wide efficiency is also enhanced when multiple locations are integrated, with common usage of databases and programming. A single entry of user information will flow to all related systems and locations.

Key control systems are a vital technology for the gaming industry and are odds on favorite to be a featured aspect in the next wave of casinos.

What's next? You can see how casinos can leverage automated key systems to improve their security measures. Learn more about key tracking systems by filling out a quick contact form or using our key cabinet configurator tool.
