InstaKey Celebrating a 30-Year Business Anniversary

For the past 30 years, InstaKey Security Systems has prided themselves on client-driven best practices to help meet the demand of a changing business landscape.

It began in 1986, when the business was formed from the search for a simpler alternative to rekeying a facility after hours. “There just had to be a better way. We knew the day the rekeyable lock technology was invented, that we had something powerful”, recalls Scott Serani, President and Co-Founder.

Early in the 1990s, InstaKey Security Systems added additional product lines such as small format interchangeable cores (SFIC) and unique serialized keys to help meet the increased demand for simplicity and cost savings. Significant government contracts and client referrals helped raise awareness about the program.

As the lock and key technology matured, InstaKey Security Systems didn’t just stop with the hardware, as they felt there was a better way to manage the information. In 2003, their integrated KeyControl® Program was released. This new program would link together the four Key Control cornerstones. Through restricted serialized keys, rekeyable lock cylinders, patented key management software, and a devotion to program administration, a total Program was born.

Key and LockIn 2006, the cloud-based management software platform,®, was patented, making “real-time” key tracking and decentralized program administration a reality.

Through accessing KeyControl Program information from anywhere, security management became much simpler to utilize and communicate.

In 2014, a KeyControl Dashboard was next released into the platform allowing clients transparency and visibility into all of their Program’s requirements. Through a simplistic design on their homepage, visual charts identify exceptions leading to detailed reporting.

We know they rely upon us and that we share the same level of commitment and dedication to their security and safety.”
