Key Holding Service
We offer a key holding service for anyone who would like us to hold a key to their property, whether it is residential or commercial. In a professional sense, key holding is the act of keeping a spare key to the premise for use in the event the primary key is lost or stolen.
Sometimes it is useful to have a key securely held. For example, if you are at work, a trades person could call and collect a key from us rather than you taking a day’s annual leave to wait in.
A key holding company will respond to your alarm being activated, taking the hassle out of having to respond to false alarm activations and the dangers of responding to serious incidents.
A key holder must:
- Be available and carry the keys constantly
- Understand the mechanics of how to operate the alarm system on the property
- Respond as quickly as possible in line with ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) guidelines
- Always have in possession relevant emergency contact details in the event of a serious incident
