We recommend that all of our customers use a key safe to ensure our 24 hour response officers can gain access to your house in an emergency situation.
The code for the key safe is only known to Ostara and is stored securely so it can only be accessed by Ostara when an emergency call is made meaning it is extremely secure.
What does it look like?
The key safe is a small grey box with an easy push button keypad with over 4000 possible code combinations. The push buttons are made of plastic as to prevent any attempt to forcible break into it with the case itself being made of stainless steel.
How does it work?
It’s an incredibly robust piece of equipment that is drilled into a wall with self-tapping masonry boards making it secure. The opening mechanism is a metal catch that is only openable with the correct code.
Who is it suitable for?
The key safe is recommended for all of our customers.
Many of our customers express concern over having a key outside of their property. This is an understandable feeling but:
- The key safe code is only known to Ostara
- If hit, the buttons break off making the box impenetrable
- It is attached to your house so is hard to take off
- You would notice if anyone attempted to tamper with your key safe and you can alert us
