Medixsafe enables KARE key control cabinets with Bluetooth format mobile card readers


MedixSafe, a pioneer in the access control cabinet market, announces that its Key Access Ready Enclosure (KARE) key control cabinets are now available with Bluetooth format card readers. This wireless technology enables users to access their KARE cabinets using their mobile devices as their access credential, while still offering the high level of security synonymous with MedixSafe’s solutions.

With the latest addition of this Bluetooth technology, KARE is now available in three different technologies to achieve access – HID, Multi-Class and Bluetooth format card readers – with a key override built right into the electronic lock. The KARE reader features a Wiegand output that can be connected to any access control panel. Much more than merely a place to store keys, it gives the user control over their keys by limiting access to authorised users only and knowledge of who has accessed keys and when.

The KARE key cabinets come in three sizes. Each enclosure has a polymer swing handle lock and allows users to use their existing cards or phone. Access to the KARE cabinet is then controlled by the user’s existing access control database. Included are key tag holders that can hold multiple keys or a set of keys. Each key tag easily snaps open so that names and/or numbers of keys can be inserted. When a different key is placed on the tag, a new label can easily be printed and installed. An Excel template that allows fonts and sizes to be customised is included for printing labels.
