Do I need a key safe with LPS1175 Certificate?
This depends on the location you want the key safe installed. If the key safe is in a remote location, it could need to stand up to some vigorous anti-attack standards so a police-approved LPS1175 Certificate key safe would probably be a good idea. The Supra C500 has this. Please call 02392756943 if you are not sure or would like advice about this. You can see the performance and the certification of the Supra C500 here.
Do any key safes come with preferred police specification?
Yes, the Supra C500 comes with the preferred police specification, however, please note that the Supra C500 Keysafe™ must be installed into brick or dense concrete to ensure police accreditation.
What’s the difference between a lock box and a key safe?
No difference. Many companies call it a “key safe” because it sounds more secure. In the real world, the security differences between lockboxes and key safes are small. Fortunately, there are key safes that do live up to their name and are secure.
How often should I change the combination on my key safe?
We at Surelock Homes and the police recommend you change the code for your key safe at least once a month to maintain optimum security.
Are key safes useful for emergency services?
A key safe means that the emergency services can quickly let themselves into the property without causing any damage to your property. This saves precious time in a medical or any other type of emergency.
