KEYper Systems, an ASSA ABLOY Company and global provider of innovative key and asset control management solutions, together with iDter, an award-winning developer and manufacturer of an artificial intelligence (AI) surveillance system that puts an end to loitering and property crime, will showcase their joint commercial security solution at NADA 2023. KEYper Systems and iDter will be at Booth 233 during NADA, January 26-29 in Dallas.

The companies announced a strategic partnership earlier this year that has KEYper Systems deploying iDter solutions at automobile dealerships to provide intelligent intrusion detection and immediate deterrence. iDter uses AI embedded in Niō Guardian nodes located around a property to detect intrusion and take immediate and programmable deterrence actions against the intrusion.

KEYper Systems and its network of agents have full access to iDter’s security solution and services, which have been proven to thwart 98% of crime without the delays or high costs associated with human intervention. KEYper has the rights to embed the iDter Niō Guardian system in its line of key and asset management products and sell the entire iDter commercial security system directly to KEYper clients.

“Auto dealerships are under attack,” said Steve Baucom, President of KEYper Systems. “Nearly half a million vehicles were stolen the first half of 2022 according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), equating to an estimated $4.5 billion. KEYper’s secure Elite series of key management cabinets only allow authorized users to check out keys and provide detailed records and photos of who is using which key and why. By adding the deterrence capabilities of iDter’s Niō Guardians, we are deploying a robust, integrated solution that stops key and automobile losses before they occur.”

Niō Guardians are easy-to-install devices equipped with a 4K high-resolution HD camera, motion detectors, microphone and deep learning AI to automatically detect an intrusion. Upon detection, Niō Guardians immediately deter intruders using 10,000 lumens of LED flood light, red/blue LED strobes, and three-way loudspeakers for spoken messages, startling sound effects and ear-piercing alarms. The Niō nodes execute programmable scripts that escalate their response upon detection and have access to a myriad of playlist responses designed to defy predictability. Notifications of intrusion with video recordings are sent to property owners for self-monitoring on mobile phones or to the iDter monitoring personnel for 911 response.

“We are excited to be partnering with KEYper Systems during NADA to demonstrate how AI can help protect and manage keys and dealer assets,” said Greg Ayres, iDter Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “KEYper’s outdoor security system provides deterrence in seconds and is highly effective perimeter protection that’s more cost effective than monitored cameras or security guards.”
