Master System Installation | Locksmith West Los Angeles
A master system allows multiple locks to be attuned to one key. This key would be the master key, given to the owner of all these properties or locks. This method of security management is very convenient in today’s business because many businesses hold different offices or rooms with very valuable merchandise.
Holding a key for every single one of these factions can be trivial and cause things to get lost. Today’s master systems are much more complex than older systems using “skeleton keys” for example.
Entrusted to a responsible owner
The master key is usually kept by only one person since it is capable of unlocking quite a few doors. A simple master key system would involve multiple locks that were keyed both individually and separately.
There are some exceptions, however, such as maintenance crews at apartment complexes where there may be a few keys in select, responsible hands that can open all of the doors. These keys are designed so that, although the master key will work everywhere. A key that was made for only one door will open that door only, and none of the others.
Three- tiered master system
A more complex setup would involve a three-tiered system. This is where there is one key (or a set of keys) that could open all the doors, another that could open a select set of doors, such as a certain building, and then individual keys to open the doors individually as well.
This is an ideal method of security in the commercial world. Because often, businesses with big buildings contain many locks, so it can be tricky to account for each one individually. Thus, Master systems provide lots of conveniences when dealing with the security of many locks at once.
