If you want your locks to work with only one key, we can key all of your locks alike, meaning you will have one key for an infinite number of locks. Your locks must be the same make and key style for this option to work. If you require additional information on our specialist keying alike services, you can get in touch with our team today, or read on to find out more.

What Is Keying Alike?

This is very convenient when a large number of locks are to be used by the same group of people, but can be a real problem if individual security is important to the users. For example, keying alike can be used on locks for filing cabinets, or front and back doors. Keying alike is the complete opposite of ‘keyed to differ’ locks, which all open with separate keys.

Why Is Keying Alike Useful?

Keying alike is useful for a number of reasons, which is why we’ve decided to outline them below. Keying alike is useful because you can have multiple locks in the same door and not have to worry about finding the right key for the right lock.

You can also have one key to open every single lock that you have. It will save you a lot of money on spare keys! If your locks were not keyed alike and you needed spare keys for five or six different locks, it could cost you a lot of money. With all of your locks keyed alike, you need just one key and you’ll also have a spare for every single lock!

Are There Any Downsides?

Not really. Something to remember is that when a group of locks are keyed alike, only two keys will be supplied for the entire group. This is because the original keys that come with locks from the factory will no longer work, as the levers inside have been rearranged so all of the locks within the group operate the same key. So, it’s important to remember to order extra keys if you require any more than two for the group of locks you’re ordering.

Easy to use and with excellent features. Our access control moves beyond basics of managing the flow of people the around a building, offering benefits like building control and system integration. Our access control is an efficient solution for businesses looking for complete security. We offer solutions from a single door site with moderate access requirements or a large office building that is looking to expand in the future.

Access Control typically consists of a card reader, a magnetic lock device (mag-lock) or electric strike (depending on door type or hardware application), a motion sensor or a request to exit device (REX), and the main control unit.

A card reader is an electronic device which reads a RFID card which enables entry into a building based on cardholder permission.

A maglock is a unique locking device based on a simple concept; without any moving parts making it very reliable. Electric current powers the device enabling it to secure the door.

An electric strike is an alternative in some applications due to its easy installation by replacing the current strike plate.

A motion sensor allows immediate egress from a facility simply based on a person’s movement without pressing or pushing any device. The mag lock or electric strike will automatically release based on movement.

A REX is usually required by code in some jurisdictions; it overrides any electric locking device by allowing egress of a premise in the event of motion sensor failure.

Access Control vs. Locks & Keys

A good access control system is far superior to the old-fashioned locks and keys because you will not have any keys to lose or any locks to re-key when you have an employee change. Furthermore, the motion control and card reader limit access and keep unauthorized intruders out. Access control gives you complete control over your security instead of relying on locksmiths or security personnel.
