For children up and down the country, Christmas is a magical day filled with presents, chocolate, and toys to play with. The same can’t always be said for adults! As the Christmas holidays loom, those who haven’t bought presents months in advance will likely feel the pressure build as they organise gifts and wrapping paper, festive decorations, and the Christmas day feast. You may also want to spruce up your home before an expensive month of celebrations, and get some last-minute decorating or renovations done.
However, what do you do if you aren’t home when your decorator or kitchen fitter is due? Do you have to (annoyingly) use up your holiday to stay indoors? Luckily, you don’t have to. Find out how one of our police preferred key safes could be a huge help over the Christmas holidays, and why you should only choose key sharing devices that have been certified by a third-party, such as Secured by Design, or the LPCB, as these are the only secure lock boxes that have been tested and proven to keep your home safe.
Like most of us, you have probably left your Christmas shopping until the last minute! Thankfully, you can now order most of your gifts online, rather than experience the mad rush of the town centre and the long queues to make your purchase.
However, what do you do if you’re not in? There is nothing more frustrating than coming home to a notice through your letterbox telling you that you have missed your delivery or finding a soggy parcel behind a wheelie bin. For a lot of courier services, they will only attempt to deliver your parcel a few times before returning it to the sender. Not ideal if you are at the office all day and are given a delivery slot at 10 am! You probably don’t want to have to take time off work to stay in for your deliveries either, especially if you want a longer Christmas break!
With our range of police preferred key safes you don’t have to. All you need to do is let a friend or family member know the code to your key safe and they can be at your home to take in the parcel. That way you know that when you come home from the office, you won't have another one of those pesky missed delivery cards. Thanks to our push-button key safes, you can enjoy a hassle-free Christmas!
Equally, sharing a code with a trusted neighbour means you could have the parcel delivered to their address and they could drop it off at their convenience.
If you have had to reveal your code to a number of people while you are out of the house, our outside safe key boxes are simple to recode, so you can still enjoy peace of mind and optimum security. Read this guide to find out how to reset your key safe code.
Want to get in some last-minute decorating or renovations before the expensive month ahead? We all take pride in our homes, but we can agree that it is a nuisance having to stay in all day while the builders and decorators come and go. Especially if you must take precious holiday time off to ensure that you are home. When you purchase our police preferred solutions, the Supra C500 KeySafe™ or the Supra P500 KeySafe™, you can keep that holiday for the actual holidays. Tradespeople can use the key safe while you’re at work, out of the house doing some shopping, or enjoying time with loved ones. All they need is the code to your outside key safe and they have controlled access to your property to provide their services without you needing to be there, simple!
That way you can spend your time off doing what you love, with the people who matter most.
We all want our lives to be easier one way or another, and many of us rely on technology to help. Access is one of the most underrated issues people experience, when you think about it, we have all been locked out at some point in our lives or been stuck indoors waiting to let in our kids or a service provider such as a cleaner. You will see all forms of access solutions online or in stores however, you need to pick a solution that is not only easy to use, but also offers you peace of mind. You may have heard others talk about secure lockboxes as a means of storing the key to your home, however many of these will not offer you appropriate security, or may be fiddly to use, especially if you are less dextrous. In the security industry, the term for a secure lockbox is a “key safe”. However even some devices that are deemed as “key safes” do not always have good security ratings or are not certified by independent bodies. That’s why it is so important to always check what credentials your key safe has before making the purchase.
We want to offer you an alternative option. Our police preferred key safes offer unbeatable security and are recognised as the most secure mechanical outdoor key safes available in the UK. They are also certified by third-parties that include the official UK Police initiative, Secured by Design, and the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB). Therefore, you know that you are not only buying convenience, you are also buying peace of mind for whenever you leave the house!
