Manhattan-based sales and rental real estate brokerage Bond New York has launched a tagging and tracking system for keys to rental apartments, the brokerage announced last week.

Each key has a unique barcode that is tracked in Bond's proprietary database. The keys are kept in a locked cabinet under camera surveillance and swiped out on a barcode reader by agents, the brokerage said.
