The Keyholding Company

Last year we responded to 38,482 alarms – most likely to one near you.


We are recognised by alarm companies, insurers and the SIA as a Professional Keyholder. That means we can be listed as your primary port of call when your alarm is triggered. We send trained, accredited and trusted responders to access your home, assess the situation and handle any escalation, so you don’t have to bother the neighbours. What’s more – we are on hand to let someone in when you can’t be there – be it a guest, decorator or delivery person. We check ID, let them in and send back a report.

How does keyholding work?

Key collection

Our surveyor collects your keys taking note of special instructions for accessing the property and resetting the alarm.

Safe storage

Keys are electronically tagged and stored in an accredited facility.

Alarm sounds

We dispatch our best-placed responder with your keys to assess the situation and, if needed, request emergency services, liaising with the police on your behalf.

The Keyholding Company is one of very best security companies in the country. We are proud to have them as a member of The ACS Pacesetters, the elite group of top performing SIA ACS companies
