Northwest Protective Service Deploys ekt Across Facilities and Hospital Clients

Oct 3 2013, 3:19am CDT | by PR.com

Seattle, WA, October 03, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Tether Technologies, Inc today announced that Northwest Protective Service is deploying the ekt® among its on-site security teams at ten major facilities across the Northwest region to prevent the loss of valuable master and sub-master keys.

“When we approached our clients with the ekt, they immediately saw that it’s the missing link in master key control,” said Chris Phillips, corporate director of operations for Northwest Protective Service. “Key loss can be a huge issue in our industry. If you have an opportunity to prevent it from happening, it’s a win across the board not just for our clients, but their tenants, our security teams and our client relationships. We are looking forward to bringing the ekt to even more of our clients in the future.”

The deployment includes more than three dozen ekts at commercial class A multi-tenant facilities and two hospitals. In the past, on-site security teams mostly relied on traditional and reactive key control processes including key inventories, pass down logs and lock boxes. The problem with that approach is that personnel would not realize keys were lost or misplaced until the next shift change.

The ekt is a proactive key control solution that helps stop the loss of keys before it happens. Each ekt has a key unit and belt unit that are married by a unique RF signal generator. When the key unit becomes separated from the belt unit (worn by the user) by more than 10 to 15 steps, alarms are immediately triggered. The user’s belt unit vibrates and emits a chirp alert while the key unit sounds a loud ~85dB alarm and emits a bright LED warning strobe. The alarms stop only when the key unit is securely reattached to the belt unit. The triple threat alarms coupled with the 15-step radius make it impossible to inadvertently walk away from keys.

“We are excited to have Northwest Protective Service taking a proactive step towards master key security and are looking forward to working with them to bring the ekt, and the peace of mind it offers management, to their client base,” said John Suryan, CEO of Tether Technologies.

Pricing and Availability
The ekt is available in the United States for $245 per single unit, $695 for a set of three, and at a reduced rate for bulk purchases*. Orders can be placed securely at stopkeyloss.com or by calling 234-206-0303. ekts come with a thirty day money-back guarantee and are further backed by a one-year limited warranty.

Forest City's 2175 Market ramps up S.F.'s real estate amenities race

Oct 22 2014 2:31pm CDT | Source: San Francisco Business Times

Developer Forest City is pulling out two effective weapons in San Francisco's amenity wars: a panoramic rooftop view and a bite-sized mall of local retail and food vendors. The 88-unit apartment complex at 2175 Market St., where residents started moving in this month, definitely packs in small, pricey units. The building – which straddles the Castro, Mission and Duboce Triangle – is the smallest of Forest City's string of projects in the city, wh ...
