Key safes are small metal boxes typically installed on an outside wall of your property. Your house keys are stored safely inside and can only be accessed by entering the correct code combination on the front panel of the safe.
If your family or friends live more than 15 minutes away, or where you haven’t designated a keyholder contact, a key safe is an essential part of using our careline service. Having a key safe installed means the emergency services can enter your home if you need help so that you can be looked after.
Are key safes secure?
We know fitting an outdoor key safe can feel a little daunting – after all, it holds the keys to your front door and your home – but it is safe.
As a careline alarm customer, we will keep a record of the location of your key safe as well as your code and will only ever pass this to the emergency services if they need to gain access to your property.
We are one of the only careline providers who allow you to subscribe to the service even if you don’t have any keyholders living nearby; all we ask is that you install a key safe.
Our key safe options
Key safes are available from Telecare24 when ordering a careline alarm plan. They are not sold separately.
We may change our key safe products from time to time, depending on availability.
