Knox Box is a rapid-access keybox entry system that eliminates the need for forced entry into a home or business.

As part of a collaborative regional initiative, Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services has adopted the Knox Box program — and with it, a system that allows first responders to gain access to a home within seconds in a life-threatening or critical situation.

This County-approved program adheres to the National Fire Code (Alberta) requirements for an installation of a key lock box.

Designed with simplicity in mind, Knox Box uses one master key to unlock the key box immediate access to your premises. A Knox Box eliminates the need for for forced entries or waiting for property owners to unlock doors in the middle of the night.

Benefits of the Knox Box system include:

  • Increased security, including an optional tamper switch that can be connected to the premise's intrusion alarm
  • Decreased incidences of operational issues, such as keys stored inside jamming the exposed lock mechanisms
  • Audited trails of when the key lock box is accessed using the E-KeySecure system
  • Removed reliance on power supply or batteries like other boxes on the market that use electronic keys
  • Improved Fire Services Facility Key Management Provides Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services with access to your building and systems during incident response
  • Less damage potential due to forcible entry measures where keys cannot be found during emergency situations
