Safety and Using Site Employees instead of a Keyholding Company

Some people opt to use a non-professional to keep an eye on their properties. Often, keyholding jobs like this are given to members of staff, employees or even taken up by the owner of the site. It’s a misconception this will save you money (keyholding costs very little – only about £1 a day) – but it’s also never going to provide you with the same protection.

Amateur alarm response is nowhere near as safe either. You and or your employees could easily find themselves going into a difficult situation and forced into a confrontation with an intruder. Not only is this stressful and demanding, but you are also liable for anything that goes wrong. Besides this risk, the level of service an experience key-holder can offer will outstrip anything an amateur could provide.

Keyholding can easily be combined with our security measures to create a fantastic network of security.

A Keyholding service can easily be combined with a wider security technology network such as CCTV cameras alarm monitoring, mobile patrol services, and security guard/manned guarding patrols to create truly comprehensive security for the premises. Combined with our options like our remote monitoring app and other digital services, you can ensure your property and staff are given fantastic protection – while also ensuring your own peace of mind.
