The Advantages of a Master Key

Business and home owners who are tired of needing to carry around a large ring of keys to access every area of their home or business can turn to a professional locksmith to provide them with just one key that is able to open every lock they need access to. This type of key is referred to as a master key, and can be created by re-keying the locks which are already installed on your doors. These locks and the keys which are used to open them are referred to as a master key system. Using a master key system a home or business owner is able to have access every lock at the location, or even multiple location, without the need to carry around a large key ring. However, the benefits of a master key system do not stop with the convenience of just one key for yourself.

Having a master key system installed, especially at a commercial building, can also help you to get a higher level of security. Not only are you able to have a single key which can be used to open every lock that is a part of the system, but you are also able to delegate individual lock access to lower level employees relatively easily. This allows for the business owner and other higher level managers to have convenient access with one key, while ensuring that lower level employees get the access to the areas of the location that they need. By creating this separation, business owners and manager are able to create accountability knowing that only authorized personnel are able to access specific locks.
