Is your business or home secure? Are you confident that you can protect your property and assets in the event of an emergency? If not, consider keyholding security. As shown above there are many benefits to key holding security, including peace of mind, protection from theft and vandalism, and faster response times in the event of an emergency.  

Contact 1Northwest Security today to learn more about keyholding security and how it can benefit you and your business, or alternatively, fill out the form below and a security specialist will contact you back shortly.  

What is Security Keyholding?

Simply defined, security keyholding is a service that safeguards your property. As the name suggests, it is a service whereby someone holds the keys to your premises or business. It essentially entails a security firm carrying a spare key or set of keys to a company’s commercial premises in order to keep it secure and to help during any after-hours call or to act as a replacement if the primary key is lost or stolen.  

Have you ever been out of town and needed someone to keep an eye on your house or business? Or maybe you’re a store owner who needs to leave the premises for a short while but don’t want to leave your valuable inventory unsecured. In either case, keyholding security may be the solution for you.

So, whether you’re looking for peace of mind when traveling or just need someone to cover for you while you’re away, keyholding security could be the service you have been looking for.

What are the benefits of keyholding?

For home and business owners, keeping your property safe is always a top priority. And one of the most important ways to do that is by having a professional security system in place. Keyholding security is an important part of that security system and general safety – here are seven reasons why you should consider our keyholding services.   


1) Quick response time in case of an emergency

One of the biggest benefits of having a keyholder on staff is the quick response time they can provide in case of any emergency. Consider the following scenario: you are on vacation and the alarm monitoring company calls to tell you that your alarm has gone off in the middle of the night. In your absence, a qualified keyholding business can attend, switch off the alarm, and examine your property for any missing items or vandalism.  Not only does this provide peace of mind, but it also can prevent any items being stolen or damaged in the first place. 

2) Reduce crime

Studies have shown that businesses with proper security measures in place experience less crime than those without. Keyholding security services can help reduce crime by ensuring that only authorized personnel have access to your property. 

3) Prevents theft

One of the biggest threats to businesses and homeowners is theft. Having a professional keyholding security service means that you can rest assured that your valuables are safe and secure at all times.

4) Part of a security system

Keyholding and alarm response, when paired with sensors or CCTV monitoring or a mobile security team, provide a comprehensive security package that ensures your property is safe and secure 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

5) Prevent natural emergencies

The benefits for keyholding aren’t only related to theft or criminal behavior. In the case of a natural disaster, security personnel will be able to act on your behalf. For example, if fire or smoke alarms go off and no one is on site to deal with it, security personnel can go out and contact the appropriate authorities for assistance.

6) Convenience and peace of mind

You can rest easy knowing that help is only minutes away in case of an emergency, and you won’t have to worry about losing your keys and being locked out of your property or business. Knowing that you have someone you trust who can help in case of an emergency is a great feeling, and will give you peace of mind whenever you’re away.

7) Cost effective

Security keyholding is also a great, low-cost approach to make sure everything is covered. If you have a competent alarm system and keyholders ready to assist you, you may not need to hire a security guard or set up an on-site patrol. Preventing a crime or emergency from occurring will also go a long way in saving you from troublesome expenses.
