Choosing the right option for your business is a matter of evaluating your business needs and picking a solution that meets all of your requirements.Key safe deposit boxes and keypad door locks are great places to start.
Key Safe Deposit Boxes for Multiple Vehicles
If your company revolves around having a fleet of cars, you may have several circumstances when a customer needs to return or drop off a car during non-business hours. Of course, you do not want to lose business by not being able to service these customers, but you also need a very secure system to make sure that they are dropping off the keys in a safe place.
In this case, using a key cabinet with a safety deposit feature would work best for your business. Key safe deposit boxes allowcustomers to safely return keys without being able to access the other keys located in the cabinet.
Ultimately, you want to make sure you’re choosing a safety key system with high security that can’t be easily broken into, as you want to deter thieves from trying to break in and stealing the keys. There are several intelligent key cabinet systems available in the market that can keep track of when a key was deposited into the box, when someone else may have opened the box and also who last took a key from out of the box. This type of logging system can now also be available to access on your smartphone. As a business owner, this gives you real-time protection and tracking so that any type of theft attempt or problem can be handled quickly and efficiently.
