What Is A Master Key System and Why Do I Need One?
Well, a master key system is not needed for everyone. Simply put, if you have a small office space, you probably do not need that level of security. If you have multiple people that require varying levels of access to multiple doors or buildings, then a master key system could greatly simplify your life. In conjunction, an electronic access control system can also greatly enhance your ability to have oversight through event tracking.
Picture a tree with many layers of branches. In a master key system chart, the less powerful keys at the bottom are called “change keys”. Each one operates only one lock or one group of locks. The key at the top of the tree is known as the “master key”.
The most basic type of master key system will have two levels of keying and is considered the lowest level of master keying. However, scaling is always an option with a master key system, with a multi-level-key system, it can accommodate hundreds or thousands of change keys.
Master Key System For Apartment Complex in Chicago
For example, if you have an apartment complex in Chicago, your tenants might need access to certain common areas and their apartments. Our commercial locksmiths can rekey the locks so that they all use the same key.
On the flip side, if you’re the property manager, you will need to have access to all doors. You would have control of the grandmaster key.
Instead of maintaining a lockbox with hundreds of keys, you can issue certain change keys to tenants. If you were using an interchangeable core system, you could simply pull out the core and install a new core if you needed to rekey the locks quickly.
Key Control System For Schools & Large Buildings
Typically, schools will use physical keys, however, sometimes they will also use access control systems and CCTV. Our experts are happy to consult with you regarding any security concerns you may face. On top of that, we’re able to supply and install commercial door hardware for your school or business.
