Morse Watchmans Integration with Software House Streamlines Key Control and Management

Morse Watchmans KeyWatcher Touch key control system now integrates with C•CURE 9000 security and event management system from Software House, part of Tyco Security Products, to provide users with more effective and efficient management of personnel, credentials and assets.

“With our collaboration with Software House, we are allowing users of both KeyWatcher Touch and C•CURE 9000 to deepen their security infrastructure while also reducing costs at their sites,” said Fernando Pires, VP sales and marketing, Morse Watchmans. “The combination of these two leading-edge technologies is indicative of our strategy to provide the advanced capabilities end users expect from a comprehensive key control and management solution.”

The integration allows administrators to streamline the process of securing, controlling and tracking keys for their facility. The ability to work from either the C•CURE Administration Station or KeyWatcher Touch itself using the intuitive, easy-to-use touchscreen eliminates the need to make time-consuming updates from within a particular system. Among the features this integration offers are the ability to easily add, modify and delete personnel from the KeyWatcher Touch, link changes in personnel credential data to the appropriate KeyWatcher user, assign KeyWatcher users to KeyWatcher sites according to their C•CURE 9000 clearances, associate KeyWatcher site profiles with C•CURE 9000 clearances, and configure card formats used with C•CURE 9000 to pass credential data to the KeyWatcher TrueTouch Server.

Administrators can also customize access based on specific items in specific areas. Through the integration, users can be either allowed to enter or be prevented from leaving an area while holding an asset. Further customization capabilities include assigned time restriction groups in profiles based on C•CURE 9000 schedules. To ensure timely notification when keys become overdue for return, KeyWatcher TrueTouch alarms and events are transmitted via C•CURE 9000 alarms.

“By integrating with KeyWatcher Touch, we are offering customers a robust, effective and efficient security solution they can quickly and easily be customized to meet their specific requirements,” said Cheryl Shea, Sr. product manager, Strategic Integrations, Tyco Security Products. “This integration is the latest example of our commitment to increasing value for our customers by pairing with industry-leading technologies.”

Morse Watchmans’ KeyWatcher Touch offers the convenience of scheduled PDF reports that are automatically emailed to authorized recipients. Email delivery of customized or standard reports can be scheduled for any frequency or specific time, or they can be accessed using the Morse Watchmans smartphone app. System administrators have access to view or run reports as needed. The system also enables security management to easily notify a user via email when a key becomes overdue.

C•CURE 9000 allows facilities to monitor events, manage personnel, create reports, display dynamic views, and more anywhere in the world directly from a PC using the full C•CURE 9000 client, the web client, or on the move with C•CURE Go mobile app. A single server and database provide an option to seamlessly unify access, video, intrusion, fire, and other supported security products in one intuitive interface.
