The Project

Many companies/institutions such as Calvin College have large collections of keys that are used for access to dozens or even hundreds of unique locks. These keys are a necessary burden because the school/organization cannot distribute master keys freely. Rather, a unique key is required for many doors and buildings. As a result, institutions end up with a lot of keys. This large number of keys makes it cumbersome to manage them in an organized and efficient manner.

Our team proposes a solution that addresses this burden of mass key management. We propose a system that recognizes keys based on what doors they open and sorts them accordingly. The goal of this system is to make mass key management quick, convenient, and secure.
