A key holding service protects business owners and their employees by keeping a spare set of keys to company property or assets. The keys are securely stored, and the service provides 24 hour assistance, alarm response and security. Engaging a keyholding service with a security provider such as LSS London means that you can rest assured that should an alarm go off, or there is an out of hours intruder there will be an immediate response by a trained security officer.
Commercial keyholders, protecting your business.
At LSS London we pride ourselves on our first-class security services. Keyholding is just one of those services, it protects your business when you are there and most importantly when you are not. When an alarm activates it is imperative that the response is fast and efficient.
Our professional, uniformed and highly trained SIA security officers are trusted key holders to many companies and are ready to attend the moment an alarm is activated.
We can tailor our commercial keyholding service to fit your individual business needs.
Commercial Keyholding Benefits
When an alarm is activated, we are instantly able to respond. If it is a fire alarm, we will liaise with the fire service. If an intruder alarm is triggered, we will immediately despatch a security officer, who has the training to apprehend and detain any persons unlawfully on the premises and call the police. We are able to call an emergency contact and arrange to secure a building.
Keeping staff safe
Keyholding is a responsible job, having to attend when an alarm goes off in the middle of the night can be at best a nuisance and at worst a danger. Confronting someone engaging in illegal activity is not for the faint hearted and can put that person at risk of serious harm. A security responder is fully trained for such a situation and knows the protocol of dealing with it.
Opening and Closing
We can open your premises in the morning and lock up at close of business. Carrying out security checks where needed and setting alarms. This service provides a reassuring layer of security to any business. Having several sets of keys with individual employees can lead to breaches in security and issues with insurance companies if something should happen.
We can attend your property to let tradesmen and contractors into the building and stay to provide security for your business. It could be for work being done overnight or at the weekend whilst business is closed. It is important that your company is always protected when you are not in attendance.
As a trusted key holder, we are able to securely keep a list of all your emergency contacts and alarm codes. In the event of any emergency, it is a huge advantage to have all this information to hand immediately. If a false alarm is triggered, having the reset codes instantly available makes a situation much less stressful.
Security Patrol check
LSS London as a security and keyholding company are able to randomly check your premises during the night ensuring a visible presence from time to time, this can act as a deterrent to criminal activity. Having a high visibility vehicle with a uniformed officer attend your property will show you are serious about security.
Our business is the protection of yours.
LSS London recognises that every business has different needs when it comes to key holding. A small business may just need a keyholder for out of hours when a business is at its most vulnerable. Providing a key holding service takes the pressure off perhaps one or two designated employees.
A larger concern may need a service which will provide security for its employees on the way into and out of work. Larger businesses often have outside contractors like cleaners and maintenance personnel who often need access after the close of business. As a commercial keyholding company we can manage the access of necessary service staff to a business whilst at the same time ensure the premises remain secure.
Whatever your business requires LSS London have the perfect solutions. We ensure that any key holder service we provide is the best fit for your security needs.
What is key holding?
Why do I need a key holder service?
If an alarm is activated out of hours there is a need for a designated key holder to attend the property. If this is a business owner or employee, it can be an issue if that person is not in the area or is unable to attend. This delay can leave a business vulnerable to increased loss. A highly trained response officer can instantly be despatched and is able to deal with whatever situation they face. If someone is still on the property our responder can handle this in a professional and efficient manner whilst awaiting a police presence.
