On the face of it, giving someone else your keys seems counter-intuitive to keeping your property safe. However, a security company’s keyholding service involves doing just that and is an ideal way to keep your business’ building safe. There are a number of benefits to opting for a keyholding service; some are obvious, some are less so.
Decreased Personal Risk
If the alarm goes off at your property during the hours you’re not at work (i.e. the middle of the night), investigating the problem yourself puts you at risk of harm. You will be walking into a potentially dangerous situation without any training. Veritech Systems security company takes the risk away from you; our trained professionals will enter the property using the keys and deal with the situation. Our staff are highly trained in de-escalating situations.
24/7 Service, 365 Days a Year
When you opt for keyholding from a security company, we won’t just work 9-5 Monday to Friday. Rather, when an incident triggers the alarm, it’s far more likely to not be during office hours. Criminals don’t take breaks, so neither do we – we’ll enter your property any time there’s an emergency, regardless of the time or day.
Protection When It Matters
One of the key worries for business owners is the possibility that an alarm will go off for hours before anyone has a chance to get to the building. Intruders could have been on your property for hours, causing untold amounts of damage. Your security company will get to your building as soon as the alarm is triggered; our control room is always manned, so we will be aware as soon as an incident occurs. If the problem’s dealt with quickly, there’s less potential for costly damages.
Take a Break!
You and your staff are only human and need to take breaks. If you’re on a vacation, keyholding services provide you with peace of mind. You can enjoy your break with the knowledge that a security company has your building covered.
Additionally, if your alarm goes off on a Friday night, there’s a possibility that you’ll have had a few drinks. Driving over the limit is never acceptable, and with keyholding services, there’s not an excuse! Finally, keyholding services also take the pressure off of your staff; staff work better in an environment where they feel safe. Keyholding services stop your staff being at risk and allow them to get on with their tasks in peace.
