Key Management Solutions for



Security requirements within the retail industry are often more demanding than others with the safety of staff and protection of goods being paramount.


Aside from emergency access and staff protection, using the central innovative SentriKey® system will give secure, traceable access for out of hours deliveries and controlled key handling.


Alarm response

Reduce your response times and no key holding charge with the SentriKey® system. Fully traceable and audited to give you reports of who and when they arrived on site.

There is also a people safety feature which gives you peace of mind, knowing they are safe on site.

Problems Faced

  • Alarm response contractors can often charge up to £300 a year just to hold/store your key!
  • Responders will drive around large territories with your key in a van, delaying response times and increasing potential losses/damages to you! 

A Keynetics Solution

Dramatically reduce response times as the nearest responder can respond quickly with no key holding issues and you know when they get there, how long they are onsite and when they leave, all audited by the SentriKey® system.  

Contractor access and visit verification

Avoid logistical challenges of contractor access planning. SentriKey® provides free SMS and email notifications, allowing smooth visit planning, as one contractor leaves another one knows they can enter, all by simple text or email message.

Problems Faced

  • It can often be a concern not knowing when, if and for how long contractors are on site for.
  • There are usually discrepancies around time charged for and visit length; missed visits charged for as keys and access ability disputed.

A Keynetics Solution

Disputed visit charges are now a thing of the past, as the SentriKey® system allows you to export data allowing easy assimilation with time, motion & payment systems and visit proof verification.

Lost keys

Avoid logistical, time management issues and costs for lock changing across stores with the SentriKey® system.

A full audit trail of key management by enabling key tracking and receiving missing key notifications.

Problems Faced

  • Multiple sets of keys held by staff, contractors, responders etc can get lost, taken off site, staff can leave and not return the keys.

A Keynetics Solution

No multiple keys, no multiple key holders. You will be alerted if the key is not returned to the box. No need for staff, contractors or responders to hold keys.

Out of hours deliveries

No need to organise a staff member to be on site out of hours to receive deliveries. With SentriKey® you can provide a one off access for delivery drivers which will be fully logged and recorded.

Problems Faced

  • Many City Centres have time restrictions for site deliveries; this causes logistical and staff management issues, having to bring in people to meet deliveries out of hours and open up, with associated additional costs.

A Keynetics Solution

Many stores have self enclosed loading bays, which would allow delivery drivers to open, deliver and close on their own, all fully logged and recorded by the SentriKey® system.

Staff safety and disruption

There is no need for staff disturbance as contractors and responders can be granted access directly with visit time and length recorded.

Problems Faced

  • Staff and management can be called out to a premises in the middle of the night due to structural or site repair needs.
  • Staff carrying keys to and from the property or stored at home can be vulnerable to personal attack and injury.

A Keynetics Solution

Staff safety is protected with SentriKey® as the keys are safely stored in the Lockbox and those granted access to the property are protected by the people safety feature on the App. This allows anyone in trouble to instantly raise the alert.

Instore secure locations

SentiKey® can be used instore as well as outside of the main entrance. This allows you to provide secure access to valuable areas of the property where you want to offer restricted access.

Problems Faced

  • Valuable or secure controllable substances in store need controlled key handling and system management; Secure cages, drug cabinets, safe keys.
  • Logistical and staff management issues along with financial costs. 

A Keynetics Solution

SentriKey® also fits in store as well as outside. No more manual key holding or logging. No more lost keys or time wasted trying to locate them. You know where the key is, who used it, for how long and when they put it back! Fully auditable key access and control.

Emergency Access for Staff

Ensure staff members can gain access urgently when required with no unavoidable delays. 

Problems Faced

  • Unavoidable delays for designated keyholders result in stores not opening on time and causing customer dissatisfaction.
