Orlando, FL (January 24, 2024)  Morse Watchmans, the industry leader in key control and asset management systems, is showcasing its Emergency Key Grab (EKG) Kit at booth #3255 of the 2024 Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC), January 24-26 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. This featured solution centers around Morse Watchmans’ proprietary electronic key control system and includes additional materials and support required to provide first responders with fast, secure access to keys in the event of a school lockdown or emergency.

“We introduced the EKG last year to meet schools’ needs for both a swift emergency response and a secure storage space for essential keys,” said Tim Purpura, VP of Global Sales and Marketing, Morse Watchmans. “We look forward to showcasing this solution at our very first FETC as we believe it has the potential to positively change how schools around the country formulate both their emergency response and key control plans.”

The EKG Kit is a comprehensive solution consisting of new and exclusive Morse Watchmans products and materials, including:

  • A 1-module or greater KeyWatcher Touch System, Morse Watchmans’ award-winning flagship system
  • Color-coded SmartKeys and KeyRing with Hubs
  • Unique KeyWatcher System First Response KeyRing Identification Label
  • Educational Materials: Implementing Key Control in K-12 Schools Tip Sheet and K-12 Schools
  • Key Control Playbook Hardcopies
  • One-on-one Educational Training from Morse Watchmans
  • Template and Guidelines for Writing a K-12 School District Key Control Policy

Using the EKG Kit materials, schools can ensure that emergency keys are securely housed and readily accessible to local first responders. With the featured KeyWatcher Touch System, critical school keys are securely stored within individual compartments with each key uniquely assigned and tracked using the included SmartKeys and KeyRing. With a unique PIN code or other designated credential, responding officers or school resource officers (SROs) can swiftly retrieve the required keys, such as those for locked classrooms or secured areas, enabling them to enter and address the situation promptly.

In addition to facilitating emergency response, an EKG Kit utilized in K-12 schools enhances general security protocols. The included products and solutions enable schools to centralize key management, ensuring that keys are always properly secured and accounted for, and only accessible by authorized personnel. Moreover, the KeyWatcher Touch system can be further networked with additional Morse Watchmans products, such as the SmartKey® electronic locker systems for the secure, controlled storage of small assets, as well as the KeyWatcher® Fleet software solution, providing schools with a clear record of who has used a specific vehicle key, enabling administrators to monitor vehicle availability, maintenance schedules, and overall fleet utilization
