CHILLICOTHE - A car dealership recently fell victim to a break-in where the thieves stole keys to multiple vehicles. This incident highlights the importance of having proper security measures in place, such as a key control system, to protect your dealership.

These key boxes are specifically designed to secure and manage keys, providing a higher level of security compared to traditional key cabinets. Some have a range of features related to efficiency, audit trails, and more, that make them an effective solution for protecting car dealership keys.

Just like any iSafe device, they also come equipped with electronic locks, which offer greater security than traditional key locks. Electronic locks require a code or a mobile device, which means that only authorized personnel can access the keys. Another feature is the ability to track and monitor access to the keys, showing you who has accessed the keys, when they accessed them, and for what purpose. This feature helps to ensure that only authorized personnel have access to the keys and can help to identify any suspicious activity.

In the case of the Chillicothe dealership break-in, having a key system could have prevented the thieves from gaining access to the keys. Investing in a key control system is not only about protecting your inventory, but it also protects your customers. If a thief gains access to your dealership keys, they could potentially steal multiple vehicles, which could put your customers at risk. Learn more about how 1Micro can control and secure your keys.
