MEMPHIS, Tenn.—MedixSafe, a leader in the access control market, announced 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 high-level security synonymous with MedixSafe’s solutions. 

With this addition, KARE is now available in HID, Multi-Class and Bluetooth format card reader technologies, with a key override built into the electronic lock. KARE features a Wiegand output that can be connected to any access control panel, giving the user control over their keys by limiting access to authorized user only and knowledge of who has accessed keys and when. 

The KARE key cabinets come in three sizes: (48-56 Keys) 16"H x 13.5"W x 4.5"D, (12-24 Keys) 10"H x 10"W x 4.5"D, and (192-224 Keys) 36"H x 14"W x 9"D. 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 customized is included for printing labels. 

“MedixSafe is dedicated to providing the very best in key control,” Jim Turner, president, MedixSafe said in the announcement. “Our KARE cabinets with Bluetooth-enabled mobile readers are an ideal choice for users who prefer to use their smartphones as their mobile access credential.”
