With home security being one of the top priorities for homeowners, it's important that you install a key safe that you trust when choosing how you let people access your home. Fitted to the outside of your home to safely store and share your key, key safes play a vital role in sharing access to your home. There are many reasons to install a key safe, such as in the case of an emergency where you haven't provided a key beforehand to a tradesperson or for peace of mind in knowing where the key is day to day, such as letting your teens in after school so they don’t lose a key. There is a great convenience in letting family, friends and trusted people like a childminder, a carer, a cleaner or a dog walker in, with a single key in a key safe.  

However, not all key safes are equal! There are many key sharing devices on the market but not all share the same level of security, so it’s important to opt for a key safe which has been independently tested and certified to gain peace of mind along with your new convenience. At The Key Safe Company, we recommend that you choose a police preferred key safe. Police Preferred (formerly known as Police Accredited) is one of the latest recognised standards for home security products that can deter crime. Issued by Secured by Design (SBD) - an official police security initiative, Police Preferred is SBD’s product-based accreditation scheme that works to improve home security. Police Preferred key safes have been rigorously tested to withstand physical attacks and allow safe and secure key sharing. Conversely, key safes without the Police Preferred accreditation are unlikely to have been tested to the same high standard and could leave your home vulnerable to crime.   

Are Police Preferred Key Safes Trusted?

Our Police Preferred key safes have been independently tested by Building Research Establishment (BRE) - achieving the same standard as a domestic front door. As an ISO 9001: 2015 accredited company, customer security and satisfaction are our priorities. Our key safes have been designed to withstand criminal physical impact and meet the high standards required to keep your home secure. Trusted by over 2 million users in the UK, our police preferred key safes are widely used to share keys in all manner of uses, including Airbnb, rented accommodation, void properties and enabling carer access into vulnerable people’s homes.   

What Is The Quality Of Police Preferred Key Safes?

When you buy a police preferred key safe, you will be getting not only a top-quality key safe but will be purchasing one from a company that never compromises on standards. The way The Keysafe Company ensures that every key safe that leaves the assembly line delivers on quality is by using an ISO-accredited factory. The ISO accreditation means that the key safe that you receive has been tested multiple times for weakness. To achieve the Police Preferred Specification, the factory needs to be independently assessed to Loss Prevention Standard: LPS 1175: Issue 8, A5 by a third party. The Key Safe Company goes the furthest to achieve optimum safety of their key safes for their customers and this is a testament to our passion for security.
