Remote smart lock solution heralds ‘new era’ for alarm response

Tech-enabled mobile security services company, the Keyholding Company, has launched a smart lock solution, which, it says, promises savings up to 87% on physical key management and access services costs.

Smart Access uses cloud-enabled smart locks alongside a mobile key app. Access rights are managed through the company’s Smart Security Platform, which connects users with their operational systems, and provides an instant view of access logs, trends and highlights any problem areas on an estate.

According to the company, the 87% savings are realised through reduced key and lock replacements, ad-hoc third-party access costs, and temporary guarding fees, as well as use of the platform to reduce administration time. The Keyholding Company says its new solution also eliminates the threat of lost, transferred or duplicated keys and enables faster response times by removing the need for responders to detour and collect keys.

CEO, Charlie Gordon Lennox, said: “Change is inevitable, and we must be willing to disrupt our own industry with progressive solutions. We always try to be two steps ahead at the Keyholding Company. The introduction of Smart Access is a calculated risk, but we strongly believe it is the future of keyholding as it provides the most value to our clients, which will ultimately result in growth to our business.”
