How to plan for a Master Key System:   


Good planning is an essential component to a well designed master key system.  A typical system may employ a grand master that works all the locks, master keys that work groups of locks and individual change keys that operate only one lock each.  Depending on your needs, you may want to consider an access control system,  video surveillance system, and high security cylinders and keys to increase security, ease of use and flexibility in conjunction with your master key system.
