There are two primary benefits to having a retail Key Safe on-site:
- Removing the need to issue multiple sets of keys.
- Enabling responders to gain immediate access.
A Key Safe is a tamper proof, mechanical lockbox with commercial-grade security, which can’t be hacked, prised open or accessed with anything but the unique security code you have assigned.
One of the hazards of a vacant retail site is the vulnerability to illegal intruders and environmental hazards. In the event of a break in, quick access may be needed in response to a triggered alarm. If there is only one set of keys, held by the retail site manager, and they live a 30-minute drive away, that break in could end up being business-critical in the time it takes to respond to a call out.
We’d never recommend issuing multiple sets of keys due to the access risk explained above. A Key Safe installation is an ideal solution.
Your keys are stored on-site, enabling immediate responders and security teams to gain entry as soon as they arrive. That means you don’t have the inconvenience of needing to respond to a 3 am alarm and that your retail site is better protected in an emergency.
