Morse Watchmans showcases new EKG Kit for enhanced emergency response at ISC West 2024

Morse Watchmans

Morse Watchmans presented its Emergency Key Grab (EKG) Kit at this year’s ISC West, which took place between April 10-12 at the Venetian Expo in Las Vegas.

The EKG Kit, designed to facilitate a swift emergency response in the event of a facility lockdown, was on display at booth #11109 alongside a range of the company’s key control and asset management solutions.

“In a crisis scenario, time is of the essence as every second first responders waste locked out of a building is a second lost that could have been spent saving lives,” said Tim Purpura, VP of Global Sales and Marketing, Morse Watchmans. “That’s why we created the EKG Kit, to provide facilities of all types with a comprehensive solution for improved crisis preparedness and emergency management.”

At the heart of the EKG Kit is a one-module or greater KeyWatcher Touch System. The KeyWatcher Touch stores facility keys in an electronic cabinet, only to be accessed by those with the proper permissions (i.e., facility managers and first responders).

Using a unique PIN code or other provided credential, emergency personnel can swiftly retrieve the required keys, such as those for locked rooms or secured areas, enabling them to enter and address the situation promptly.  

In addition to the KeyWatcher Touch, the EKG Kit also includes additional materials and support required to provide first responders with fast, protected access to facility keys in the event of an active shooter, natural disaster, or other emergency. 

With every complete EKG deployment, facilities benefit from both a controlled, known location for master keys as well as the implementation of a complete key control policy developed with the help of Morse Watchmans experts.

This significantly improves response times and effectiveness during critical incidents and gives stakeholders peace of mind, knowing that the space they are occupying is equipped with robust security measures to handle emergencies efficiently.

The EKG Kit is ideal for any facility where lockdown procedures are enacted during critical events. This includes schools, hospitals, airports, public venues, government buildings, critical infrastructure sites, data centers, and more.

Additional solutions on display at ISC West 2024 from Morse Watchmans included SmartKey electronic locker systems and the KeyBank® Touch key access control system.
