What is ‘keyholding’ and how will it benefit my home or business security?

Key-holding is a regulated service, supplied by a licensed security company whereby the company securely holds the keys to your business or residential property. Your keys are securely stored in a safe environment and any use of your keys is accounted for in a key register. The security company can then respond to any alarm or CCTV activation at the premises whilst the owner is unavailable.

What are the benefits?

Consider this: you are away on holidays and the alarm monitoring company call you to inform you that the alarm has activated in the middle of the night.

A licensed keyholding company can respond in your absence, turn off the alarm and carry out an inspection of your premises. The situation can be escalated to services such as the Gardaí (Irish Police), Fire or maintenance company if necessary.

A full report outlining the reason for the attendance at your property is emailed to you once the issue has been resolved. This response service eliminates all the risks that might fall on an employee or friend attending to an alarm activation in your absence.

Keyholding and alarm response, combined with alarm or CCTV monitoring, complete a suite of security services that will go a long way to ensure that your property is safe and secure 24/7/365.
