Our Key Control Program
Key Control is an organized, formally documented, and administered program that manages the authorized distribution of keys while limiting the unauthorized acquisition of keys. It requires consistent management and when overlooked, can easily become out of control. How do you maintain yours? What happens when a key goes missing? Or, when you find a key?
Most key systems are provided to initially secure the location and control the distribution of keys, but little attention is given to how to manage it afterward. Without consistent management routines, the security investment can easily degrade due to lost or unaccounted for keys, especially when keys can be duplicated without authorization.
There’s a better way to protect yourself. An InstaKey Key Control program is designed to maximize security and minimize costs through re-imagined hardware solutions, cloud-based management (information records owned by you), and a dedicated support team to help keep your program compliant. Our data management best practices provide complete oversight to know who has access and what they have access to, making it simple to regain control – regardless of the size or complexity of your keyed environment.
Individually Serialized, Restricted Keys
Can you control your keys?
Many mechanical keys are uncontrolled and easily accessible or duplicable. Not InstaKey keys.
Our keyways are restricted, meaning the key blanks themselves are not available on the open market. Local locksmiths and hardware stores are unable to acquire them, thus limiting unauthorized duplication opportunities and providing better controls.
On top of that, each InstaKey key blank is stamped with a unique serial number, recording when and how it was cut, and who it was issued to, giving it a distinct fingerprint. This added security alleviates concerns as to the key authenticity and initial issuance. With every key fingerprint databased, key blanks, key holders, and access points can all be better managed.
A simple best practice with serialized, restricted keys is to get your keys back upon key holder separation. By tracking that unique key, it becomes much simpler to maintain control.
What happens when you lose a key and must change your locks?
Our re-imagined lock hardware can be changed, or rekeyed, without locksmith assistance, additional locks, or secondary tools. A single turn of a step change key is all that is needed to change, or rekey, an InstaKey lock. This can be completed up to 12 times in each lock. Our hardware has been designed retrofit into much of the lock types you already have installed.
Can you imagine rekeying your own locks for the cost of a new set of keys instead of purchasing new hardware or calling a locksmith for service?
