Master Lock launches portable Bluetooth select access smart key lock box
Master Lock has launched an outdoor use Portable Bluetooth Select Access Smart Key Lock Box allowing for safe, shareable, and convenient access to your keys via a smart phone. As the ideal solution to managing multi-user access to your keys whilst moving the device from location to location; there is no need to hide your keys under a doormat or flowerpot!
The Portable Bluetooth Select Access Smart Key Lock Box is a key and card storage device which ensures flexible security. The portable design offers removable installations since it can be fixed to fences, gates, or any type of anchors points. This removes the need to drill holes for a permanent fixing and makes it perfect for renters.
Users can open and manage the Portable Select Access Smart via their smartphone with the free Master Lock Vault Home App. Temporary or permanent codes can be shared with 15 guests in one batch, and the overall number of contacts is unlimited. Since sharing is immediate, users can grant access to their keys remotely and in real time; as well as set up for future access. Users can also fully monitor who visits, when and for how long with live notifications as well as a comprehensive history of accesses to the key safe. A warning will also be shared should there be any unauthorised attempt to gain access making the user fully in control.
The Bluetooth data transmitted between the smartphone and Select Access Smart are both wrapped in a high-level military encryption for maximum security against hacking. Only authorised persons can get access to your keys, and only you can control it.
The key safe features a zinc outer shell for excellent resistance to attacks, as well as a durable solid body with a coated surface to protect the hardware and door finish. The integrated shackle allows for portable installation, and it has a large capacity to hold key cards or traditional keys.
The key safe is not only water resistant, but it can also withstand a range of temperatures from -40°C up to +50°C, making it a sure bet to stand against the elements.
In addition, a double-locking mechanism has been designed for greater resistance to prying attacks. An electronic keypad is backlit for easier use in the dark and includes 10 digits so users can create a secure code, as well as an unlimited number of 'guest' combinations. A backup combination can also be stored on the Master Lock Vault Site.
The easy to replace CR123A battery has a two-year life expectancy with low battery warnings sent straight to your smartphone. Master Lock has designed the key safe with a discreet compartment to jump start using a nine-vault battery should the energy completely run out.
The smartphone technology offers complete access control through the free Master Lock Vault eLocks app. Additionally, guests can be added or removed at anytime with either permanent or temporary access programmed depending on the individual's needs.
