AssetWatcher from Morse Watchmans is an RFID-enabled locker system that allows businesses to secure and track valuable assets. It supports more than 10,000 users on a single system and is flexible, scalable, and highly capable. Suitable applications include schools, hotels, hospitals, casinos, and data system

AssetWatcher tracks who removes and replaces each asset in the system, along with when assets were placed in or taken from a locker. The locker system RFID technology also provides data on whether a specific asset is in the system, and if so, which locker it has been placed in. All interactions are sent to KWTServer software for later review. In addition, users can create and save commonly used reports, or schedule them to run automatically. Users can be limited to only a single asset, or given free reign to as many as they need.

AssetWatcher has many features already proven on KeyWatcher, including e-mail notifications (alerts can be set up for specific events with notifications sent when they happen), multi-site operation, multi-user capability, and is equipped with three user modes to suit various applications.

A monitored battery backup provides locker system protection for up to 24 hours.
