How We Do It

Program Development

Request a Brochure

Our Programs developed for Clients in the Education marketplace incorporate proven Key Control cornerstones to ensure ongoing system stability, consistency, and cost savings.

By integrating the four fundamental components of Restricted and Individually Serialized Keys, a simple, cost-effective Rekey Avenue, the only web-accessible Key Tracking Software platform available, and unparalleled support with dedicated Program Administration, each Program is uniquely suited to solve your keyed access needs

We begin with providing restricted, serialized keys that enhance your key holder’s accountability by improving their ownership of a specific identifiable key. Then, when a key is lost or stolen, the rekeyable lock cylinders enable immediate rekeying onsite. With a simple “single key turn” of a specialized “step change” key and issuance of new keys, your location is secured. Next, we manage all of your Key Control information in the only patented, web-based software platform, allowing you the flexibility to access and manage information at any time. And finally, it’s our commitment to consistent administration practices and data sharing that lets you manage your Key Control audit history creating visibility to who has access to which areas in ‘real time’, while re-enforcing consistent standards for each key holder’s compliance. It is our Program’s data management capability and information sharing that modernizes the overall effectiveness of your Key Control program solution.


“The system is now very simple; we are able to change an entire system with just the turn of a key. I don’t have to develop my own database or software – I just provide the input. By logging on to my tracking report, I can see which keys belong to which room instantly.”

1st Lt. Sean Dalton – Bancroft Hall, U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis

“We wanted to be able to have control. Now, for the eight schools that already have the InstaKey system, I know for a fact where every master key is…and I know how many keys are out there.”

Chris Mages, Facility Construction Safety Support Manager – Chula Vista Elementary

“With the InstaKey system, we have the capability to re-key numerous doors in the time it used to take to change out one lock, and we don’t have to change any of the hardware.”

Alex Hill, Maintenance Department – Piedmont College

“We have the key control we wanted, and we are able to reduce the number of manpower hours previously required to effectively manage our facilities.”

Dick Martin, Chief of Campus Police – Piedmont College

University of Maryland, School of Public Health
  Conversion from SFIC Core Swap

In late 1999, Building Management experienced an incident with a lost Master level key for a campus facility. The resulting cost in material and labor to replace all cores and keys under the compromised Master level key prompted the University of Maryland to begin seriously considering alternatives to their existing mechanical key system.

Estes Park School District R-3
  Conversion from Best SFIC

Upon assuming his role as the Director of Maintenance and Operations for Estes Park School District R-3, Dave Coleson identified a number of elements in the District’s overall security program that he felt needed to be improved. Along with the need for structural reinforcements to the main entrances of some of the school buildings and the addition of a campus-wide CCTV system, Coleson determined that the existing key system would need to be replaced.
