A lockable box, which can be opened with a code. This allows a key to be safely stored outside the building, in case of an emergency, you forget your keys or carers need to access the home.
For people living independently but with limited mobility, answering the door to let somebody in might take considerable effort.
One simple solution is to install a lockable box outside the front door which can be opened with a code. This allows a key to be safely stored outside the building, to be used in case of an emergency, if you forget your keys, or if support workers/carers need to access the home, offering individuals greater independence, safety, security and reassurance.
Remotely programmable key safes are also available, which allow you to change the access code from a computer or smartphone, offering extra security. You may want to check with your home insurer or the police that the model you have chosen is approved.
