For many property owners in London, a keyholding service can prove to be of great value. However, there may be some who are not familiar with the process of keyholding and the added levels of protection it will provide the homeowner. So, it is important to have a quick look at basic keyholding procedures and how these will be integrated into the security plan of a property.
Keyholding at a Glance
Keyholding refers to a couple of different areas. The most obvious definition is that a trusted company will hold a separate set of keys for the owner, relatives or any guests that may be staying at the residence. However, another facet of keyholding revolves around our services as an on-site security provider. How does this work?
We will initially perform an assessment of your location. This will include all security issues and any specific requirements that you may have. After this is complete, we will formulate an operational plan with our staff to prepare for any occurrences that they may encounter as the result of an alarm. After these initial steps have been addressed, we will contact your alarm company and inform them that we are your primary keyholder.
In the Event…
Should an alarm be sounded, a mobile officer will be immediately be dispatched to your location. He will provide a thorough outside inspection of the property. If it safe to do so, he will enter to verify if a theft or intrusion has occurred. If an accidental cause of the issue has been determined, a full report is generated and it will be dealt with accordingly.
If the police do indeed need to be summoned (in the case of an actual intrusion or robbery), we will keep you fully informed as to their actions as they occur. Thus, you can rest assured that even if you are away from your home or office, you are in good hands.
These are some of the main aspects of the keyholding services that we provide. Should you have any questions or if you desire a consultation, please to not hesitate to contact us.
