The Key Safe Company reveal new SBD accredited product

Secured by Design member company The Key Safe Company has recently announced the imminent arrival of their latest and most innovative police preferred specification mechanical key safe, the ark Tamo™, at The Health Plus Care Show.

The two-day conference, hosted at London’s ExCeL arena, was the perfect occasion to showcase the ground-breaking ark Tamo™ to over 6,000 health and social care professionals.

“The Health Plus Care Show was the ideal platform to highlight our new ark Tamo™ key safe as it’s one of the top events for the health and social care sector. We always look forward to attending as we get to engage with such a wide variety of people, including carers and care agencies, NHS staff, as well as other forward-thinking industry experts. We were particularly delighted to attend this year to share our excitement for the ark Tamo™ - our first ‘OEM’ innovation which has been developed in the UK by ark Life, our sister manufacturing brand and, as with our existing products, will be serviced by our fantastic UK based sales and support team,” said Suzi Viljoen, Chief Revenue Officer for The Key Safe Company.

With innovative technology protected by multiple patents, the ark Tamo™ key safe combines the unparalleled levels of physical security and code protection and is the outcome of extensive research, end user consultation and product development. Built to LPS1175 Issue 8 A5 attack standard security rating and Secured by Design’s Police Preferred Specification, it also features world-first, patented multi-push keypad technology. This allows the same button to be pressed up to four times, resulting in over 9.7 million possible code combinations - the highest number for any mechanical key safe ever built.

Designed with ease of use in mind, the industry leading ark Tamo™ also features an illuminated LED keypad with large, easy-press buttons, an inner vault light and two key hooks allowing users to store more keys and easily retrieve them, whatever the light conditions.

Attendees of the Health Plus Care Show were quick to comment on the cutting-edge features of the ark Tamo™ and the benefits these will bring.

“We had great feedback from visitors, who were eager to see the new ark Tamo™. It was clear that this product offers something to everyone,” said Suzi. “For health and social care professionals in particular, it was the illuminated buttons and the light inside the key safe, meaning they will be able to enter the code and see the keys no matter what time of day or night. Many end users may receive key safe as part of a care package, which is then linked to a monitoring centre. Therefore, service providers were very excited about the new possibilities offered with the QR code integration with the ark Tamo™, which enables smart functionality whilst maintaining the reliability of a mechanical key safe, offering the best of both worlds. The bigger, easier to operate multi-push buttons also received a lot of attention meaning not only higher code security but ease of use for those with dexterity issues. It was fantastic to hear so many positive comments, as the development of the ark Tamo ™ was strongly driven by customer voice. We are delighted the ark Tamo™ will be meeting so many of our customers wants and needs.”

The ark Tamo™ will be available to purchase from early Q3 2022. To register interest, visit
