Master Key System in Today’s World

By Mark Bennett Subscribe to RSS | February 24th 2012 | Views:

One of the important concepts in the home security system is the master key. The master key is a system where you can access all the doors in your house, office, and schools using a single key. Your doors and entrance will have different locks and bolts. Using the master key, you can open and access them without carrying the concerned bunch of keys with you. It is as convenient as Xfinity Internet.

The usage of the master key is useful as you can avoid frustration when you need to search for the required key. With the master key you can easily open the locks rather than to search from the bunch of keys that you have placed in your handbag or office bag. Besides that it provides much security than normal keys as if you lose the normal keys you can still gain entrance to your house.

Nowadays, there are different types of master keys of different qualities. Using some master keys you can open all the doors in the house, while with the others you can open some doors. Different manufacturers make different master keys based on the need and necessity of the user. Basically it is made on the need and usage of the person who wants it.

The best thing of using the master key is that you can prevent outsiders and robbers from gaining access to your house. Most of the master keys are specialized and advanced that it is quite difficult to break the locks of the house using the traditional method of stealing. Besides that, in case someone gets the key to your house, you can still use the master key to prevent theft.

Master keys are very much ideal for houses, schools, colleges, business and restaurants. As these places are highly prone to theft, it could be an added advantage to have a master key for all the doors. I remember an incident that happened at my colleagues’ son’s school where a child got locked in the class. The child fell asleep in the class and forgot to go home. The janitor thinking everyone left; locked the entire classrooms and the doors as it was Christmas vacation the next day.

The worrying parents of the child came to the school to find for the child. The child was suffocating in the classroom and not only that the classroom was dark which further frightened the kid. The kid kept on screaming and the parents immediately called the principal who used the master key to open the door. If he had searched for the entire set of the keys that were used for each door, the child could have either passed out due to the fear and anxiety. Even the child could have suffered a stroke due to the fear. See how useful the master key was in this situation.

But there are some demerits of this master key. Frankly, using the master key frequently can make the lock vulnerable to thieves. That is when you use the master key to continuously open the door; the lock will get accustomed to the master’s key way of lock removal. This will make it easy for robbers to open the lock faster.

Also it is risky if the owner loses the master key. Seriously, the master key is the important key and once it is lost; it means you are making your house vulnerable to outsiders. If it goes into the hands of a wrong person, just imagine how much damage it can do to you physically and psychologically.

The other basic disadvantage of the master key is that it is expensive when compared to the normal keys and requires a lot of time to make one. Also it is difficult to design master keys for huge hotels and hospitals as their lock and door systems are many and complicated.

In short, using a master key is good, but you do need to make sure never lose it. But as we are humans, there is a chance we might misplace it or lose it. So in case, you are a person who hates to search through the bunch of keys that are there, then master key is a good choice for you.
