Housing/casing

The casing should be burglar proof, and it should also be rust resistant. You need to remember that you will place the key box outside the house. It should be all weather to avoid damage or corrosion.

 

Easy to Mount

The key lock box that you buy should be easy to mount. You will be required to install the key box on the entrance of your home so it should be easy to install.

Some of the key lock boxes come with basic tools to make the process of mounting easy. Always consider looking for a key lock box that will not require you to hire a handyman to do the mounting.

Secure Codes

Most of the key lock boxes use codes to gain access. You need to make sure that the key lock box has secure codes. Instead of the traditional lock boxes that use one code, look for a lockbox with interchangeable locks.

With interchangeable locks, you can remotely generate codes to ensure maximum security when using the lock box. The lockbox will generate codes randomly to ensure the security of keys.
