Manned Guarding

Key Control Services (KCS) Manned Guarding services provide clients with security officers to look after the physical security of premises and the safety of people – employees or members of the general public.

Key Holding/Alarm Response

With our Key Holding and Alarm Response services, we will hold a set of keys to your premises. If an alarm is activated, a supervisor will be notified by your monitoring station or police and will attend immediately.

Key Holder Assist Service

Similar to the normal key holding service, but if an alarm goes off one of our experienced security officers will escort you to the site so you will have someone else with you to deal with potentially dangerous or worrying situations.

Open Up/Lock Up

Our Open Up and Lock Up service ensures a client’s premises are opened up at the start of the day, or secured when staff leave to go home. A mobile supervisor will check that there are no staff left in the building.

Mobile Patrols

Mobile Patrols protect your property day or night using liveried Key Control vehicles. Mobile Patrols are a suitable alternative if Manned Guarding is impractical or too expensive, or when high visibility is required.

Vacant Property

Key Control offer void and vacant property security to a wide range of property owners including commercial agents, asset managers and blue-chip companies across the UK.

Company Accreditations

All staff are fully trained before they go on site. Each and every employee including Directors have a compulsory active SIA license ISO 9001:2015 and the company is an Approved Contractor Status for the S.I.A. accreditations in the provision of Key Holding & Security Guarding, these have been in place for many years.
