Key safes are an important part of the Careline Alarm service, especially for elderly people and those who live alone. A key safe means that trusted people such as relatives, friends, and neighbours can enter your home to help you in an emergency. There are so many different key safes available to buy, but which is the best key safe for elderly people?
Today, we'll be taking a look at three fantastic key safes, all of which are available here on the Careline365 website.
What is a Key Safe?
But first, for anyone who may not be aware: what is a key safe? A key safe is a secure metal box which you can fix to an exterior wall of your home. Inside, you can store multiple keys behind a secure combination lock. Key safes are particularly useful for older people, disabled people, and those who receive regular visits from carers. You can share your key safe code with those you trust, allowing regular visitors to let themselves in. There's no need to rush to the front door.
For Careline Alarm users, key safes are even more important. When you call for assistance using your Careline alarm, our Care Team will call your emergency contacts and/or the emergency services to come and help you. Without a key safe, there may be no way for them to get in if the front door is locked. In cases like this, the emergency services may need to force entry, taking up precious time and causing costly damage to your front door. A key safe is a simple, affordable, and secure solution.
Which is the Best Key Safe for Elderly People?
So, without further ado, let's take a look at our top three secure key safes for elderly people.
1. Supra C500 Key Safe
The Supra C500 key safe is hard to beat. It is one of the most secure key safes available today. The Supra C500 has received an independent security rating (LPS1175 Level 1 Accreditation) which means it provides as much security as a domestic front door! As a result, the Supra C500 is one of only two police-approved key safes in the UK - and it isn't hard to see why.
It's made of heavy-gauge steel with a sturdy zinc-alloy shell. The 12 digit keypad allows for more than 4,000 possible combinations, while the weather cover protects the keypad from the elements (as well as prying eyes). In addition, there is a handy internal hook, making it easy to hang up to six keys inside. Installing the Supra C500 is easy, with clear instructions and all the fixings provided in the box. We think the Supra C500 is the best key safe for elderly people in the UK.
The Supra C500 is available for just £65 from Careline365. You can order a key safe alongside a Careline Alarm plan online.
Alternatively, to add a key safe to your existing alarm plan - or to order a key safe only - call our friendly team on 0800 101 3333. We offer free delivery on all of our key safes and personal alarms.
2. Yale Y500 Key Safe
Next on our list of the best key safes for elderly people, we have the Yale Y500. Yale is a well-known and trusted brand that has made quality locks and security devices for more than one hundred years. Their best-selling key safe is no exception.
The body of the key safe is made from secure die-cast metal with a protective plastic cover. The Yale Y500 can store up to four keys behind its secure combination lock. It uses a four-digit rolling lock to provide unbeatable security and ease of use. Installation is quick and simple with all the fixings provided in the box. You can set your own combination and reset it as frequently as you like for maximum peace of mind. As an extra security feature, the key safe will not close until the user scrambles the code. This means you cannot close the key safe if you have left the code visible on the dials. This feature is a useful reminder to scramble your combination and keep it hidden.
The Yale Y500 is a secure and affordable key safe for elderly people, available for just £32 from Careline365. You can add this key safe to your existing Careline Alarm plan or buy it on its own by calling 0800 101 3333. Alternatively, you can order a new Careline Alarm system and add the Yale Y500 key safe to your plan at checkout online.
3. MasterLock Select Access Key Safe
Finally, we have our most affordable key safe for elderly people: the MasterLock Select Access key safe. This is a quality key safe suitable for anyone on a budget.
The MasterLock features a large storage compartment, able to hold up to five keys. The four-digit rolling combination lock is easy to use and features a sliding shutter door to protect the dials from rust, dirt, and grime. Its weather-resistant outer shell is made from reinforced zinc and features a hinged lid for easy access to your keys. The box includes all the fixings you will need to install the key safe, as well as clear instructions for installation and setting your combination. You can also reset your combination as often as you wish for added peace of mind.
The MasterLock Select Access is a quality key safe at an even better price - available for just £25. As with all of our key safes, you can order it by itself over the phone by calling 0800 101 3333 or purchase it alongside a Careline Alarm plan online.
