A safe has always been a reliable way of keeping your belongings secure. As technology has advanced, the key safe has emerged. A key safe enables the owner to keep a spare key in an accessible unit, securely fixed to an exterior wall. This key can then be used by relatives, friends, or emergency services when they need access to the property. Most key safes use high-security combination locks. With a key safe, you can rest assured that your keys will not fall into the wrong hands.
Why Would I Need a Key Safe?
We find that key safes are incredibly useful for our Personal Alarm users. For example, if you had a fall in the bathroom and activated your alarm, one of your emergency contacts and/or the emergency services would be sent to help you. If you were unable to get up and unlock the door, they may need to break the door open. However, if you install a key safe, your emergency contacts can enter your property without damage or delay when you need assistance. In addition, our 24-Hour Response Team will also pass the combination to emergency services when necessary. This eliminates the need to leave spare keys in unsafe places like plant pots or under doormats where they present a significant security risk.
Next, let’s take a closer look at one of our key safes.
This is the “Holy Grail” of safes. It is sturdy, easy to install, and, most importantly, it protects what matters most: you and your home. While many still swear by the old-fashioned “key under the doormat” method, this simply isn’t safe. A key safe offers you significantly improved security. With that security comes peace of mind for you and your loved ones.
The Burton Keyguard Digital XL has been independently tested and certified by Sold Secure Bronze Standards. This means that it has passed rigorous tests involving power tools, so you can be sure that nobody can access your key(s) without the combination! The safe allows you to input a combination of up to 12 digits while the safe itself will hold up to 7 standard sized keys.
Worried About the Cost?
The cost of a key safe varies depending on the specifications of the safe itself. At Lifeline24, we have a range of key safes to choose from, including the Burton Keyguard. If you’re unsure about the cost, there are cheaper alternatives. However, you can rest assured that all of our key safes maintain the highest safety standards.
