What is a key safe and what’s it for?

A key safe, also known as a key lock box or key box. Serves as a secure container used for storing keys in a safe and accessible manner. Commonly used for a variety of purposes, including:

  1. Emergency Access: People often install key safes outside homes and properties to provide a secure and convenient way for authorised people, such as family members, care workers, or service providers, to access the property in case of an emergency.
  2. Property Access: Authorised people use key safes to store spare keys for properties, such as holiday homes, rental properties, or commercial buildings, enabling them to access the keys or access control fobs when needed.
  3. Security: Key safes offer a secure way to store keys.
  4. Convenience: Key safes offer a convenient solution for granting access to properties without the need for physical key handovers. They are especially useful for properties with multiple occupants or frequent visitors.

In summary, key safes serve as a secure and practical solution for storing keys and providing authorised access to properties. Whether for emergency access, property access, security, or convenience, key safes offer a reliable key storage solution for various applications.

Police Preferred and Police Approved, what’s the difference?

The terms Police Preferred and Police Approved refer to the same endorsement from Secured by Design. The official UK police initiative that works to improve home security. However, Secured by Design uses the term “police preferred specification.”

What are Police Preferred key safes?

A Police Preferred key safe is a type of key safe that has been approved and recommended by the Police. They meet certain security standards and therefore offer a high level of protection against unauthorised access. Police Preferred status is a certification awarded by ‘Secured by Design’. Designed to provide a secure and reliable means of key storage for emergency access, they give homeowners peace of mind knowing they have protection for their keys.

We typically recommend key safes for those who need to provide access to their property to trusted people. Such as care workers, service providers, or emergency responders. By choosing a Police Preferred key safe, you can have confidence in the security and reliability of your key storage solution. Contact us to discuss your needs.
