Downsizing Your Keyrings

Too many keys


Keys are one of the most commonly misplaced items. This may because we have so many to keep up with. On average, most people have about five keys on their key ring. One for their car, one for their car doors and trunk, one for the front door of their home, one for the back door of their home and another for place of employment.

Other people may be carrying around additional keys for boats, ATVs, storage units, sheds, extra vehicles, work vehicles, safety deposit boxes, mail boxes and more!

That’s a lot of keys.

The good news is you there are ways to downsize your keyring and make keeping up with all those keys more manageable.

A great way to downsize your keyring is to change or rekey all the locks in your home to fit one master key. Your front door, back door, patio door and/or outbuildings can all be switched over to this one key system, allowing you to rid yourself of the hassle of keeping up with three or four separate keys and fumbling to find the correct key when you need it. You can either do this yourself or look for locksmith services in Northcote to change them for you.

This one key system is also a great choice for businesses as well, in situations where multiple people need access to a particular area or unit of the property without having to wait for the main key holder to show up and provide that access.

Usually, all the locks can be left in place and simply retrofitted or rekeyed to fit a new key. However, changing all the locks to one standard kind or brand may be required. Either way, it’s a simple process that saves you the headache of replacing several different keys in the event that you ever lose your keyring.

Electronic Security Systems For Homes and Businesses

If you are looking for electronic security systems for home and business, these options will go beyond the basic locks and keys  . Toplock can also install state of the art electronic security systems in your home or business. Our security     system experts can service and repair your existing electronic security systems as well.

These systems give you absolute control over who gains access to your property and alert authorities via an alarm system any time an unauthorized person enters the perimeter.

Toplock’s electronic security systems also give you the ability to remotely monitor all activity within the confines of your property via closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras from any Internet connection in the world.

Our electronic security system options include:

Pin Pads and Swipe Cards – Pin pads operate off a security code that can be issued, changed or revoked at any time by system administrators, strictly controlling who has access to the property. Swipe cards work the same way, using a pass card that is swiped on the entry system to gain access. Without the code or the card, access to the property is denied.

Electronic Openers and Magnetic Locks – These types of systems can be operated remotely by security personnel in designated locations to be sure that only those who have permission to enter a restricted area gain access.

Intercoms – Intercoms can be used to communicate between secure areas to determine who is requesting access to a property and why. These are an ideal choice for homes in gated communities or businesses with large, fenced shipping or receiving yards.

CCTV – Closed-circuit television cameras can be placed in any area of your home or business to monitor all activity. These cameras can be monitored remotely via an Internet connection from any location in the world. These camera feeds can also be set to record so that, in the event of a security breech, important evidence is documented and can be turned over to authorities.

Alarms – Any time there is a real or perceived breech in security at your home or business, electronic alarms with alert authorities of the situation and let them know help is needed. Alarms can also be used to alert first responders to other situations like fires and medical emergencies.

Toplock has been providing expert installation and servicing of electronic security systems in the Greater Melbourne area, including the suburbs of Carlton, Fitzroy, Preston and Northcote, for more than a decade.
