An agreement between leading site protection provider Orbis Protect and the makers of the UK’s most secure smart key safe is set to significantly improve security for site managers and FM staff across the country.

Orbis Protect has agreed an exclusive distribution deal with Keynetics, the makers of the Bluetooth-enabled SentriKey®, to offer a full-proof security solution for thousands of contractors across the UK.

The agreement will see Orbis distribute the UK’s only commercially accredited Bluetooth-enabled key safe to its growing client list.

The patented technology of SentriKey® is the only access solution on the market that provides flexible, traceable, easy and secure access using a mobile device. It is made of chromium molybdenum aircraft-graded steel, offering the most secure key safe on the market.

Guy Other, CEO of Orbis Protect, said:

We’ve harnessed the power of Bluetooth technology and significant software engineering experience to create the most advanced easy-to-use and secure key management system on the market. It benefits users by saving time, increasing security and cutting costs, as it can be used up to 6,000 times, over a three year period.

“SentriKey® offers reports detailing access control by property managers, maintenance teams and contractors, which can be useful in any HR or insurance cases. This full-proof security solution will benefit those working on-site, as the system also offers an enhanced level of safety with integrated lone worker protection.”

Stuart Wheeler, Managing Director at Keynetics, said:

“Our exclusive partnership with Orbis Protect, one of Europe’s largest vacant property services companies, will seamlessly integrate SentriKey® into Orbis Protect’s day-to-day operations and service offerings, including safety-critical ecosystems, key storage, on-site security and data analysis.

“SentriKey® and Orbis Protect intend to collaborate on future cloud, digital and workspace security transformation technologies, with scope to be used by wider industries.”

Orbis is launching three SentriKey® Lockbox options including a wall mount, portable configuration and alarm integrated device.

SentriKey® has been approved by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), the leading International Certification Body in the fields of security and fire protection. It is the only key safe in the World to have achieved the esteemed C1 security rating, making it the most secure key safe available on the market and the only one accredited for use on commercial buildings.

Orbis Protect posted its strongest ever annual financial results earlier this year, with turnover for 2018/19 increasing by nearly 11%, and profits (EBITDA) rising by 26%.
