Implementing a Restricted Key System

A restricted key system is essentially an answer.

To which the question is: how can I trust leaving my keys with strangers or new employees?

Well the answer as we said, is restricted key systems!

This kind of system is a good answer to:

  • A lost key by an employee.
  • Key theft or a quick duplication and return.
  • HR forgetting to collect a key during an exit interview.

If you’ve encountered a similar issue, or fear you might face one – a restricted key system is a great option!

So What Exactly is A Restricted Key?

A restricted key is a key you can only duplicate with an authorization card and identification.

To duplicate this kind of key you need a special licensed locksmith, usually the one who sold you the lock and keys, and when providing him with your authorization key – you can duplicate another.

This massively decreases this security flaw! To illegally duplicate a restricted key you need to steal both the key and the authorization card. A card you can store for example in a safety deposit box.

Do I Need Restricted Keys In My Business?

Not every business needs restricted keys. If your business is only you, you can probably trust yourself (hopefully).

However, once you have employees, you have a problem. Especially if you have temps.

Ideally you should be able to trust anyone who comes to work for you, but on the off chance you might need to lend a key to a temp, or to a third party (cleaning crew, private contractors etc).

If you don’t want to take a chance, or you already need to replace your keys and want to invest in a better lock – you’ve made it to the right place!
