All you need to know about master key systems

How does it work?

Locksmith Service Arlington VA Arlington, VA 703-995-0800Let’s talk about the basic setting up of the system. Deciding that you need a master key system is one thing but judging its feasibility is in the hands of an expert. There is no point in investing in a master key system if there are just 4 locks at your home. Plus, the locks that are to rekeyed must be in a working condition and should be relatively new. Old locks don’t generally work well with a master key system and more often than not they need to be replaced for a master key system to work seamlessly. Coming to the working of the system, the locks that are covered in the system are rekeyed to a new combination that is similar for all locks. The locks are designed in such a way that they can be opened with a single master key as well as the designated key for that lock.

How master key systems enhance security?

This system does add a certain level of convenience to one’s life but if you think that is the only motive of a master key, then you are wrong. You can use it to enhance the security of your office space and control or restrict the movement of the employees in certain parts of the building.

For example, if you want to restrict the entry into the data center of your office to only the top management and the data management team, you can use a master key system with a combination of a sub-master key system. With a sub-master key system in place your employees will be able to freely access the designated areas with a single key but when it comes to accessing the data center only the top management and the data management team will be able to access the room.
