Stay in Control and prevent Chaos

Key boxes and key cabinets make managing and finding keys easy and reliable.

Key management for efficient control of key handovers

Secure storage and electronic management of keys

Manual key management costs a lot of time and energy. A key is quickly lost, the trouble is enormous, searching for it is time-consuming and often unsuccessful. With more and more mechanical keys in circulation, you can quickly loose track. A manual issue of keys, e.g. for security-relevant buildings, rooms, commercial properties, industrial sites, vehicle parks and fleets, can result in an immense administrative effort, significant security gaps and very high costs.Would you like to save yourself this hassle and your valuable time by leaving the key chaos behind? Would you like to have a better overview and full control over your numerous keys? deister electronic provides efficient solutions for key management. With electronic key management, user access to individual keys can be pre-defined and clearly managed via the Commander Connect software.

All key removals and returns are automatically documented and can be retrieved easily. The intelligent key cabinet proxSafe ensures a transparent, controlled key transfer and an efficient management of from eight up to several thousand keys.

Of course, your key storage can be individually configured to your specific requirements based on the number of keys and key ring sizes. This is made possible by our cabinet models and flexible panels. Each key cabinet offers 24/7 access and is easy to set up and operate. Your key experience: a totally secure solution for 100% control over all your keys - and more resources for the essential tasks of the day.

A variety of features and modules for diverse applications. All access is automatically documented and the information issued in user definable reports.

Emergency operation mode

All cabinets remain operational - even in the case of a power or network failure. The data is stored locally and an integrated emergency battery secures continued operation.

Smart reliable identification for your keys

The keyTag is the heart of a key management system. Each keyTag has a unique identity so that its location within the cabinet is known.

The most important and critical part of the system must perform all of the time to ensure that you have access to the keys when you need them, that’s why proxSafe uses the most advanced identification technology available - RFID.

User identification and control tasks

To gain access to the cabinet and keys there is a choice of control terminals that all include an integrated smartcard reader which allows most customers to make use of their existing proximity access control cards, PIN or both. There is also an option for biometric verification and a touch screen. The control terminal allows for full flexibility giving the option of having multiple key cabinets controlled from a single point or multiple control terminals controlling the same set of cabinets, this is an important consideration where disability discrimination regulations need to be met.


Compact and elegant key box with automatic door

The compact and elegant design of the maxx cabinet blends functionality of a professional key management system with a sleek design for use in a prominent location. The maxx cabinet allows full control over your keys whilst giving quick and easy access to keys when needed. The convenient and ultra reliable automatic roller shutter door keeps keys hidden from view and allows the cabinet to be located in areas such as a corridor where a conventional hinged door would be problematic due to space. Available in 32 or 64 keyTag capacity Maxx cabinets can be combined with other maxx or flexx cabinets where additional storage space is required and multiple cabinets can all be managed by the same control terminal.

A scalable modular system

Flexx cabinets are available in a matching range of different sizes with a choice of either a solid steel or window door. The modular design allows a system to be easily adapted specifically for your current needs whilst leaving options open for future needs. Select a cabinet size, select keyTag panels and finally select a control terminal to meet your exact requirements. A variety of different internal keyTag panels allows each cabinet to be optimised to suit the different sizes and bunches of keys that are to be controlled. A system can be configured for maximum capacity by only using the wider spacing keyTag panels for those large bunches of keys that need more space. The keyTag panels can also be changed as needs change.

Equally the flexx cabinets allow you to invest in a system for today that leaves your options open for future expansion. Multiple cabinets can be connected together and managed by the same control terminal of your choice. You can add additional cabinets or keyTag panels at any time.
