Local or global

Our software is web-based supporting administration across multiple locations. This means you are easily able to centrally monitor systems in different locations.

Software

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

Mechanical override

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

Future proof

All installed modules are interchangeable and backwards compatible. If the requirements change, the system can move with the times accordingly.

Made in Germany

All products are made in Germany. Their function and quality are developed, produced and tested to the highest standards.

The keyTag

The keyTag is the heart of a key management system. This most important and critical part of the system must perform flawlessly in all environments to ensure access to keys when needed.  RFID is inherently more reliable than contact identification and is why deister key management systems use RFID keyTags to provide maximum operational life with minimum cost.
