Oxford, CT (May 3, 2023)  Morse Watchmans, the industry leader in key control and asset management systems, reports a rising number of domestic universities installing the company’s flagship key control system, KeyWatcher® Touch, to facilitate heightened levels of security and safety on campus.

Within the last year, Morse Watchmans reports new, multi-department deployments of its KeyWatcher Touch systems at Boise State University and Marquette University. Additional higher education facilities, including the University of Michigan, Ohio State University, Yale University, University of Texas, and University of California have recently expanded or upgraded their existing KeyWatcher Touch systems with many others having placed or plan to place orders for fulfillment in 2023.

“We are witnessing universities across the country embrace our first-of-its-kind key control solution because it allows departments of all types to manage campus security in a specific, yet highly integrated manner across the campus enterprise,” said Tim Purpura, VP of Global Sales and Marketing, Morse Watchmans. “Moreover, KeyWatcher Touch improves university security while reducing costs related to theft, loss, and re-keying, assuring campus security and facilities teams alike that their security investment offers tangible ROI.” 

Because KeyWatcher Touch systems are infinitely scalable, it is possible for universities to start with one system and add on more as needed. In this way, key control and asset management solutions fit the needs of departments and universities now and into the future. 

Morse Watchman’s KeyWatcher® Touch electronic key cabinet is a scalable key control solution for organizations looking to secure, manage and track keys and other assets. With a 7” touchscreen and patented SmartKey system with industry-first KeyAnywhere technology, it is easy to withdraw and return a key securely to any key cabinet located within an enterprise. KeyWatcher® Touch also integrates with many brands of access control systems for a layered security approach.
