The ideally convenient solution to key storage and handover for landlords in England
Simply deposit your key in a key safe or vault and give the safe code to your guests. They can then access their holiday home or apartment in England, without your needing to be personally present. The code can be allocated manually on the key vault itself, or via online code generation for greater security. The advantage of online code assignment is that you determine the validity period of the code, so you can limit the access authorisation of your guests. There is also a big advantage for guests themselves: since they are not tied to a particular handover time, they can arrive when they wish. Given that the distances involved in reaching England from abroad are considerable and delays are possible, this method allows you to avoid unwelcome difficulties with handing over keys. Critically, electronic key safes and vaults from masunt require neither internet connections, mobile connections nor power supply.
Organise and manage your keys
masunt key safes and key vaults also make a big difference to your key management. Landlords of holiday homes and apartments in England often need to allow service providers, cleaners and caretakers to access their properties. A key safe enables you to store the necessary keys at a central point. This means you can make keys accessible to various groups for limited periods and keep track of exactly who receives keys at which times. If a key is then lost or other problems arise, you can soon track down a solution. Since only one key is ever in circulation and there is no need to supply keys to all individuals and groups with access authorisation, this effectively eliminates the potential for loss and minimises the risk of unauthorised intrusion – and if a key does happen to get lost, that loss is immediately recorded thanks to centralised organisation and a fast response is initiated. Making use of our key safes and vaults also eliminates another common security risk: when handing over keys to service providers or similar personnel, the required keys are often left in supposedly safe places in order to avoid the inconvenience of personal handover. Doormats, dustbins, gutters and flower pots are all used – yet these common hiding places are familiar to professional burglars and opportunist thieves alike. masunt offers you a secure alternative to key storage, organisation and handover.
Need a way to store a large number of keys? Our key safe models in the 1400 E-Code series are particularly well suited to accommodation with multiple rooms or areas with several apartments, because they have enough space to store up to 12 different keys in four separately controllable compartments. The 1100 E-Code series, meanwhile, offers storage for up to three keys at a time.
Our key safes and vaults are available in two versions: a standard version made of V2A stainless steel and a more hard-wearing model made of V4A stainless steel. The latter product is particularly suited to use in areas where there is a high salt content in the air, or where increased protection against corrosion is required (e.g. for swimming pools and in the chemicals industry). Because their electronics are also protected, the vaults can be used in regions with extreme weather conditions where temperatures range from -40 to +60 degrees Celsius. That makes them ideal for use in the vicinity of the English coast.
Key safes and vaults have numerous applications
Needless to say, key safes and vaults are not only suitable for owners of holiday homes and apartments who need to store and hand over keys securely; they have many applications. Our safes and vaults are used by owners and operators of hotels across England as well as property managers, car dealerships, car rental businesses and universities. They also offer many possible uses in domestic environments: our key vaults and safes are particularly useful for handing over keys to carers, tradesmen, neighbours and family members.
Of course, our key boxes can be used to store a second key or spare key securely as well – so if a key is lost or somebody gets locked out of a holiday home or apartment, there is no need to call an expensive locksmith. Access cards and minor valuables can also be stored.
Whether you are active in the commercial field or a public institution, or need a safe place to store a key privately; whether you are a landlord living in the vicinity of your property who cannot make time to hand over keys (or you live in another part of the country entirely); whether you are considering installing a key safe for security or organisational reasons, or for reasons of convenience; whether the vault or safe should be used indoors or outdoors – whatever your needs, our range has the perfect product for secure and convenient key storage and handover.
