Landlords have a lot to look after when renting out their property. The more properties you oversee, the more complicated this is. Locks, while being relatively small, is an important part of this. That’s why a master key system is recommended; it could simplify your properties security.
You might ask what master key system locks actually are. Having been used by countless commercial premises and apartment buildings for years, a key master system is a popular option for securing your property.
What Is a Master Key System and Why Should Landlords Use Them?
A master key system is a locking system that closes off certain doors and areas for certain people. Typically, master key system locks can be set to provide access to specific areas but not others. That makes them a recommended option for apartment buildings or commercial premises.
By using a master key system, you can prevent tenants access to restricted areas of your residential and commercial property. For example, within your residential property, you can use differ keys. These differ keys are unique to the specific locks they're designed for, preventing tenants from gaining access to restricted areas like other resident’s rooms. As a landlord, you will have access to the master key which will allow you to gain access to all areas of your resident property.
Benefits of Using Master Key Systems for Landlords
A Cost-Effective Security Solution
If you wanted to prevent access through specific doors within your property, you’d typically need to use a different lock and keys for each door. That isn’t true with a master key system. When using a master key system, you can set certain door locks to only be opened by the master key; preventing unauthorised access to restricted areas of your property. Reduce the number of locks and keys you’ll need to purchase and install. As a result, the master keying system will reduce your overall costs.
Master Key Systems Allow for Access Control
As a landlord, you want to ensure that you know exactly who has access to the areas within your property at all times. This is where master key lock systems come in. With a master key system, you have the ability to set which keys open which locks, preventing access to specific areas while allowing people to enter others, for example, if you are a landlord of a HMO property, you can prevent tenants from gaining unauthorised access to other tenants rooms. Making master key systems and effective access control solution.
Perfect For HMOs
Houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) can be difficult to keep secure. After all, there’ll be multiple people sharing many of the same areas. They’ll need to keep certain things private. With a key master system, however, you’ll make sure that only those who are allowed into certain areas can access it.
That can also be the case for those who can access certain storage cupboards and other things, if necessary. Using these master key system locks will ensure that former tenants can no longer access a particular building or area, even if they have an old key. Former tenants can still access areas if they do not return their key/s. If a previous tenant goes off with a key, then the landlord has to change the external door cylinders & potentially also the bedroom door cylinder to ensure security is not compromised. The benefit of having a MK system is for the owner rather than the tenant, it means they can access all the doors in all properties & only have to carry around 1 key with them rather than a bunch of keys.
If you’re a commercial property owner or landlord, then a master keying system can be recommended. With the various benefits that they offer, there are relatively few reasons not to use a master key system. These are best used with other security systems, such as installing surveillance systems, among other things.
Master key system locks can be difficult to get past when using Anti drill, snap & bump resistant cylinders are used– keys cannot be copy cut if a restricted profile system is requested, which makes them one of the more recommended security options. With that, you shouldn’t have to worry about security.
