The Keyholding Company partners with Keynetics

The Keyholding Company has partnered with electronic key safe supplier, Keynetics, on a solution that removes the need for external keyholders.

The new offering is part of The Keyholding Company‘s Smart Access service, a range of smart lock solutions for businesses that uses cloud-connected devices to streamline mobile security and access management.

The collaboration uses Keynetics’ SentriKey lock box, the only key safe in the UK approved for use in commercial properties, to store keys on-site and at the point of need. This hardware is combined with The Keyholding Company’s technology used by its nationwide network of response officers.

Commenting on the new partnership, The Keyholding Company’s CEO, Charlie Gordon-Lennox, said: "Keynetics are a leading supplier in the industry and boast some of the best hardware on the market. Partnerships like ours are essential for the industry to continue innovating and pushing the boundaries. I'm looking forward to delivering a faster, more reliable and more valuable service to our clients with the help of the Keynetics team.”

Alongside improving response times and cutting costs, this new addition to the Smart Access solution also streamlines third-party and contractor access by enabling completely remote access management through The Keyholding Company’s Smart Security Platform; reduces carbon emissions by decreasing the number of journeys spent collecting keys; and uses Keynetics’ LPS 1175 accredited SentriKey hardware, a burglary resistance specification that includes rigorous attack tests with a variety of weapons from power tools to hacksaws.
