S.A.M. – Security Asset Managers


Security Asset Managers are electronically secured cabinets designed to control and monitor your company-owned keys and other valuable assets.

All user access and management is controlled by you.

PIN access is standard, with many other access options available such as Fingerprint readers, Biometric Hand-readers and Card swipe systems.

All electronic cabinets contain built-in network technology that integrates with your network (LAN), allowing total administrative control using Global Facilities Management Software (GFMS).

GFMS offers 24/7, “real-time”, remote management, and monitoring of your entire system of cabinets and asset management sources from any PC or web enabled device.

All cabinets can be custom designed to fit your specific needs.

Highest Security Asset Control

Key Systems, Inc. offers several styles of electronically controlled cabinets to store, audit, and manage your keys and assets. You can personalize these devices to secure a wide variety of sensitive items. However, keys still remain our customers’ main focus for asset retention. The two most widely utilized methods for storing keys are through direct entrapment and/or Tamper-Proof Key Rings® within our Security Asset Managers, or SAMs. Access

to assets is assigned to one or more users based on configuration through GFMSTM Software. PIN access comes standard, but a host of other access options are available.

Direct Entrapment

Key Systems, Inc.’s Security Asset Manager (SAM) utilizes a variety of methods to secure your assets. To achieve the greatest level of security for high sensitivity keys, we offer direct entrapment in dedicated key positions. Your master keys are locked in place, concealing their profile and providing absolute protection from tampering.

Interchangeable Cores

To achieve direct entrapment, your interchangeable core may be installed within our position housings. This allows for custom placement of locks and convenient rekeying should the need arise.

Interchangeable core housing options are available for Small Format, Large Format, and Mogul style keyways.

Tamper-Proof Key Rings®

Achieve greater flexibility within your SAM, allowing multiple keys to be secured using a single key position. Our key rings are serialized and made from durable stainless steel.

Tamper-Proof Key Rings® may also be used with our non-electronic products.

Smart Plugs

Add unique ID to tracked assets using our Smart Plugs and Tamper-Proof Key Rings. Assets can then be returned to any position. The latching option secures assets against unauthorized removal.


Secure small electronics, such as pagers, phones, or key fobs.


Populate your SAM with Key Hooks for versatile asset storage and easy labeling.

Custom Colors

SAMs and lockers come standard in a gray powder-coated steel. Custom colors are optional and require a Pantone® number for matching.


Our proprietary KSI® cam locks are available to populate key storage positions. Retainment by most lock styles including small and large format IC is also available.

External & Internal Cards

External Cards are secured by the locked key position, while Internal Cards are concealed within the SAM for added security.

Touch Screen

The touch screen keypad is available as an alternative to the tactile and capacitance keypads.

Door Options

Clear Lexan® Doors provide fast and easy visual audit of assets. Extended Doors increase capacity to accommodate large assets.
