key management

Casinos are in the business of gambling, but the one thing they do not gamble on is security. That is why most casinos in Las Vegas and around the world rely on Morse Watchmans’ key management solutions. Our casino key control systems provide the higher level of key security needed to protect drop boxes, counting rooms, and other critical areas of the casino. A KeyWatcher Illuminated casino key management system adds to operational efficiencies while also enhancing the safety and security of the overall environment. 

Casino Key Control Systems Offer More Security

The casino key control system’s doors will not open until it verifies that the user has permission for the specific key or key ring requested. This provides a double layer of security, unlike competitors’ systems. When access is requested for a specific key that requires multiple signatures, the system recognizes these keys by their identification fob and auto-prompts for the additional log-ins. For certain authorized situations, the key control system can allow for a user to input only their credentials, and the system will recognize whether they already have their specific keys or not. If not, the system will unlock and make those immediately available, saving valuable time and reducing necessary training.

Casino Key Management Software & Gaming Compliance

Our key control software enables set-up of many types of reports, including those required by state gaming agencies and tribal gaming agencies. These reports can be called up or automatically generated and sent to the proper employees. For example, to meet gaming regulations that require the three-man rule to access sensitive or restricted key sets (including drop keys), the casino key management system can be programmed to recognize these keys and only release them once the three required logins are complete. The robust reporting system will also help track and improve processes, ensure employee honesty, and minimize security risks.

Convenient, Networked Casino Key Security Systems

Save time, reduce training, and overcome language barriers with the instant key release. Our electronic key cabinets recognize credentials and release specific keys or key sets immediately, cycling through available sets so that each gets equal usage. KeyWatcher Illuminated and KeyWatcher Touch key control solutions are also network capable, allowing critical information about key activity to be communicated across multiple systems throughout the casino. System-wide efficiency is also enhanced when multiple locations are integrated with a common usage of databases and programming. 

We invented key management, and we keep making casino key management systems better. It’s all part of our outside the box thinking – that you’ll find right inside the box.
