The electronic key cabinet with 40 slots, an RFID reader, an alcohol tester and our ecos webman software was able to meet the challenges.
To ensure that the driving licences are valid but also present, they are provided with tamper- proof RFID labels. The cabinet is only opened when the driving licence is held up to the RFID reader.
However, before the locker door opens, the alcohol level must also be below the specified limit. Only then the employee can remove and use their vehicle key. When the vehicle is returned, the alcohol test must also be passed so the key can be returned to the key cabinet.
As the vehicles are Securitas‘ most cost-intensive work equipment, it is of central importance that mileage, tank level, damage and acute faults can be reported when the vehicle is returned. This works via the intuitive input mask of the key cabinet. It enables employees to enter the current status of the vehicle directly on the system when the vehicle key is returned and to transmit the data to the software. This gives the administrator a complete overview of the current status of the vehicle fleet. It also enables the vehicles to be quickly made ready for use again.
At Securitas, the electronic key cabinet is used around the clock in a 24/7 rhythm. At the same time, 70% of the employees work at night. It is therefore more than important that the key cabinet works flawlessly at all times and is also ready to operate independently via an emergency battery in the event of an emergency.
In order to receive the VdS certification, Securitas has connected the key cabinet to the alarm system so that an alarm would be triggered automatically in the event of a violent burglary.
