The locksmith arrived within the agreed timeframe and was polite and pleasant. He fitted the key safe in no time at all, but when I asked him to help me programme it , he said he couldn't do that, and left. He did ask if there was anything else I needed, but we only needed help setting up the key safe. We did manage to programme it ourselves in the end, so no harm done, and the Housekeep managers did ring up a couple of hours later to check we were happy with the service, and offered to send someone round to check the setup for us. We would definitely use them again.
