Add a New Key or Asset


Go to Settings > Keys/Assets (Keys Loan & Check Out)

Choose ADD KEY by clicking the green button at the top right of the work window.

It will open a new window to fill in information


Under “Type” select an existing Type or select “New Type” to create new. If you choose “New Type” it will prompt to enter a name and once you save the key you are trying to create this new type will become available on the dropdown list for future use.

"Type" allows you to create Keys Categories.  Examples:  Safe Keys, Exterior Keys, etc.


Add a name of the key or asset you want to create.  It should be a distinctive name, especially if you have more than one to avoid confusing when Security Officers are searching the list for the key or asset to check out on the system.

Example: Main Entrance Main Key + Main Entrance Back Up 1 + Main Entrance Back Up 2

Max Time Check Out

This allows you to set a maximum time the key can be kept out by the assigned user. Minimum is 5 minutes and maximum allowed by system is 20 hours. This field is optional and can be left blank.

However, if you do select a time once it key is not checked-in within the specified time, GuardTek will trigger an anomaly alert visible and/or distributed to specified users under Anomalies.

If you select a time, it will also create an visual alert for security officer if a key was not returned within maximum time you allotted that key to be out of inventory.


This is optional field . Add here a instruction to security officers when checking out this key

Once you completed the fields you can either choose Add Keys OR Create
