Keyed Alike Locks

There are several reasons why it is beneficial for all of the door locks in your home or business to use the same key:

1) Convenience: Having all of your locks use the same key means that you only need to carry one key with you instead of multiple keys for different locks. This can be especially useful if you have a lot of doors in your home or business.

2) Reduced costs: If you have all of your locks keyed to the same key, it will be less expensive in the long run. Instead of needing to replace multiple locks, you would only need to replace one lock and rekey the rest.

3) Easier to manage: Having all the locks using the same key make it easier for you or someone who is in charge of managing the property, to keep track of keys, who has access and to be able to change the lock and keys in case of an employee leaving or any other reason.

It's important to note that it's not always possible to have all locks to use the same key, and sometimes, it can be more convenient or practical to have different keys for different locks, such as in case of high security areas or commercial properties with multiple buildings. In these cases, a master key system can be implemented which allows designated personnel to access multiple locks using a single master key while others will have to use their own assigned keys for specific areas.
