FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)


 

How do I purchase the correct box for my community?

After the program creation and implementation with the municipality, a business or individual simply goes online or calls us directly to purchase the product indicating which municipality they belong to.  Roper would then send the box that is unique to that municipality with the proper configuration to be used upon installation.  The resident or business would fill out the optional information card, obtain a duplicate entry key, and contact their local Municipality representative. 

Since only authorized personnel have access to the lock box key, the Municipality representative would pay a visit to the location to place the duplicate entry key as well as the information card in the lock box, and they are ready to go.

What kind of information is contained in the lock box?

For a resident, the information could be pertinent information relating to their emergency care such as allergies, current medications, recent conditions, etc.  Even if someone is present when the first responders arrive on scene, receiving this critical information could be difficult to obtain or inaccurate.

For a business, pertinent information could be contact information, hazordous materials, a building layout, etc.  

Where do I locate these boxes at my residence or business? ChangeMatic Cylander Locks

The location would depend on the type of box that is preferred by the resident, or the municipality.  There are 3 types to choose from:

  • Over the Door:  Hangs from the top of the door
  • Door Hanging:   Hangs from the door knob
  • Wall Mounted:   Mounted on the inside door jamb or in close proximity to the entryway

 Who purchases the product?

This varies depending on the municipality.  Because of the low cost, some cities may purchase and allocate the boxes to those in need.  Other cities set up the program with Roper, then advertise the availability of the program to their community. The residents or businesses then order directly from Roper.
