First I know next to nothing about Kenwood.
Does Kenwood have a dongle similar to a Moto ASK.
I have another agency that has purchased Kenwood P25 radio's, and I do not care to have control the programming software.
However, I do want control of my sys key.

If they have a hardware key, what is the part number?

Also how do you system admins handle this situation..TIA

Yes they have a USB dongle similar to the Motorola ones. One thing to be sure of is whether they are Kenwoods running Kenwood software, such as the NX5000 series or Kenwoods running the EfJohnson Software such as the VP5000.

Kenwood:
KWD-ASK-MK (Master Key)
KWD-ASK-AK (Access Key)
KPG-D1NK Software


EfJohnson:
2505000972 RADIO SECURITY DEVICE - MASTER
2505000974 RADIO SECURITY DEVICE - SLAVE
Armada Software

Just double check these with your dealer.

We maintain custody of the Master Keys for each manufacturer, customer either provides or is given a slave key which is configured with only their active radio IDs and allowed talk groups.
