In 2011, HNL teamed up with Global Tracking Group based out of Baltimore, Maryland to design the first ever master key tracking system that works both indoors and outside. The patent pending technology is called the Pixie Engine™ and is a significant breakthrough in the asset tracking market space.
“In the last 6 years Facility Managers and Security Directors from colleges, universities and even corporate campuses have been calling us seeking a solution for master key tracking” said Ken Barksdale, CEO of Global Tracking Group and Chairman of HNL. “GPS is not the solution due to its limitations for indoor tracking and RFID is extremely limited in accuracy and very expensive to install”. The Pixie Engine™ not only covers both indoor and outdoor areas but is extremely cost effective as well. A typical midsize college campus can spend upwards of $100,000 to replace and retool all their locks and some have lost keys multiple times in one year. The return on their investment is immediate.
Tracking master keys is not the only capability of the Pixie Engine™ technology, any asset can be tracked using this same technology such as; campus vehicles, equipment, security personnel and even visitors. “Our vision of this technology is not limited to Colleges and Universities but they have been the ones seeking out a solution so we have built the platform to meet their needs first and will expand to other arenas as the demand develops” says Garcia.
“Carlos and I are very excited for the future of this technology. The opportunities are endless and the market demand is very high for security and asset tracking. Our first few accounts have been installed and we have more than a dozen more to implement in the next few months. Who knew master key tracking would lead to such a large opportunity” said Barksdale.
