What is key holding?

A keyholder is a person or company in charge of keeping track of your spare keys. A keyholder's other important responsibility is to respond to an incident after the site's security system has raised the alarm.

What are the benefits of using a key holding service?

1. It reduces additional security responsibilities 

You are the principal keyholder as the business owner. However, receiving a phone call in the middle of the night notifying you that your alarm has gone off only to discover that it was a false alarm is inconvenient.

Furthermore, if an intruder is there, visiting the spot in the middle of the night could be dangerous, but our expert keyholders can take care of this.

2. Keyholders are always available 

Even if there is a backup keyholder other than you, there is no guarantee that they will be available.

On the other hand, professional keyholders will be available at all times, regardless of the time, and will have your keys on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

3. keyholders know proper security procedures

If the alarm goes off, keyholders are also responsible for getting to the site. If an intruder is on the premises, a professional keyholder will know what to do and how to handle the situation.

4. Keyholders have technical knowledge 

False alarms are also possible; for example, the alarm system could be experiencing a technical issue. Professional keyholders will typically be able to diagnose the problem and reset the alarm system, minimising unnecessary stress and saving time.

5. Keyholders are professional 

It is the responsibility of a keyholder to keep spare keys for you. Most businesses would give a spare key to a trustworthy employee, but the spare key could be lost.

A professional keyholder has the task of looking after the company's spare key, making them the ideal candidate for this position.
