What is “Key Control”?
Key control is simply knowing how many keys are outstanding, who has those keys, and what locks those keys will access.
Why do I need it?
Most keys are easily duplicated just about anywhere you care to take them-even department stores! “Do Not Duplicate” won’t stop someone from getting additional keys.
How do I get Key Control?
We have numerous ways of helping you do this. The only way do this is to have keys that have patented designs so that only authorized dealers can have access to the blanks. We have several types of keys that insure that nobody can get unauthorized copies of keys.
How much will it cost?
In most cases the cost is not much more than that of a simple lock rekey. Usually all that is needed is to replace the cylinder portion of the lockset.
Having restricted keys and locks are only half of the key control solution. Being able to know who has what keys and what those keys operate is the other half and just as important. We have available computer software programs that will track who has what keys and what locks they are able to access.
