The police have highlighted Loxal Security’s revolutionary Letterbox Keysafe, and sees it as a potential solution to a growing problem of burglaries in the London and Home Counties area, by accrediting it with its ‘Secured by Design’ rubber stamp of approval.
The burglaries are taking place largely as a result of old-fashioned keysafes, some of which are easily identified and compromised.
The police recognise that old style key safes do not present much of a barrier to a determined thief, and act as a ‘beacon’ to criminals.
Not only are they easy to spot, but many are easy to break into and they tell the offender that, in all likelihood, the inhabitant of the property is likely to be old and possibly infirm.
The Loxal Letterbox Safe is very discrete as it is not visible from the outside. The digital access codes required to operate them make it impossible for anyone without the code to open it – it has taken key safe security into the 21st Century.
The secret to the Letterbox Keysafe is the IDACS software (Intelligent Digital Access Control System), which has an internal memory which stores all access details; in the event of a problem, a detailed audit trail can be accessed and downloaded. Each user has their own, unique, six-digit code.
The product – which is powered by long-life battery technology – replaces the existing entrance door letter-flap and is installed without damage to the door leaf by a unique clamping mechanism (the letter box can still be used as normal).
The robust steel key safe within the unit can securely retain the keys used to open the door, which are fixed to a strong, retractable wire lanyard, which ensures they are not removed from the property.
