Keeping Your Key Safe Code Secure


So, you’ve just had a key safe installed onto your property and have created a secure code. While you may have many visitors to your home, who do you trust with your key safe code?


Are Key Safes Safe?

Our secured by design key safes store the spare key to your property to offer a safe and secure means of sharing access to your home, unlike leaving a key in an unsecure hiding place, like under a doormat.


Whilst leaving a key in a key safe is certainly more secure than hiding it, some key safes are safer than others. The level of key safe security depends on the quality of your key safe and how well it can endure an attack. Less durable key safes have a poorer security rating as they are easier to break into. For security assurances, only opt for a device with the Police Preferred Specification and the LPS1175 Issue 8 certification from the Loss Prevention Certification Board. 


Which Key Safe Is The Best?

If you’re looking for the best police preferred key box that is truly safe, our Supra C500 Keysafe™ is the original police preferred key safe to have recently achieved the formidable LPS 1175 Issue 8 A5 certification. 


The first mechanical key safe to do so, the Supra C500 has also secured its place as the most secure mechanical key safe in the UK market, which it shares with the Supra P500 Keysafe™.


However, regardless of the physical security, any device can be compromised if your key safe code falls into the wrong hands. That’s why it’s so important to keep your code secure and only reveal it to individuals you trust.


Who To Trust With Your Code?

keysafe-c500Entering the correct code is the only way to access your key safe. 


Only reveal your key safe code to people you trust such as family and friends or emergency services who may require access to your property.


Services providers such as cleaners and tradespeople can use your key safe to work at your property while you are out without needing you to be home to answer the door. For maximum security, remember to change your code once the job has been completed. 


It may be spelling out the obvious, but under no circumstances should you reveal your key safe code to people you do not trust. 


If you believe that your code has been compromised, we recommend changing it so that your key safe cannot be accessed without your knowledge or permission. 


If you need to make a note of your code, store it somewhere safe where it cannot fall into the wrong hands.
