Be the Master of your keys!
Don’t let your bulky, heavy keyring and keys rule your life – get Master keying to get back the control over your security. Not only does a , reduce the number of keys you have, you have increased security around your home and business.
A Master key system is a system of grading keys and locks that allow different groups of people or keys to gain access to certain areas around your home or business.
Master Keying for the Home
It may sound a little overkill but the Master key for a home can be a great idea if you want to restrict access to certain areas around your home. For example, you can restrict the cleaner to access only rooms and areas you want them to clean. The pool man or gardener doesn’t need access to the whole house, he can be given access to the garage, back shed and side gate only.
Master keying for the Business
Master keying in a business situation allows you to control exactly who has access to certain offices and areas around your business. The warehouse staff can have access to the warehouse, the office staff can have access to general office areas and management can have access to management offices, safes, and control rooms.
To start with, you need to group employees with similar access requirements. There is no need to give access when it is not necessary. This will only compromise your security and defeat the whole purpose of Master keying. Planning for the future will also help in setting up the system and your locksmith will be able to advise on the best way to restrict access.
TIP: Keep a good record of your Master key system and all keys issued and returned. This will help maintain a tight and secure business.
