Key management barcode – The next version of the key management software TSObjektkey will support bar codes. This includes the QR Code, Code 128, EAN and PDF 417. Since this key management software is upgradeable, further barcodes can be added on request. Keys can be identified by a barcode, can be searched for with the barcode. You can use a given, own barcode per key, but you can also assign a unique one from the program.
The barcodes that can be displayed in the program can be changed and printed out. For the test of the software we used a commercial label printer (Brother QL 500) as well as a simple USB barcode scanner.
In the listview of the keys you can see at a glance whether a key is assigned to a barcode. Via the context menu you can reach directly the dialog with the barcode functions. So far as always in the TSObjektkey software the barcode functionality is an extension. You can use these functions, but it is not a must. It is planned that the bar codes can also be implemented for other elements such as cylinders, doors or objects.
