Electronic Keys

#1
Hey, can anyone tell me if the keys for back in electronics work for all target stores or even just all of the stores in the same district or if they are specific to each target? Yesterday we lost about 5,000 in a theft from someone who had a skeleton key. I was just curious if it had to be someone from our store that took the key or if it's possible they got the key from somewhere else. They still have the key which makes it even more concerning.

ps.. merry christmas!

You say skeleton key, but do you mean the magnetic key? If it's the latter, yeah I'm pretty sure they could have stolen it from ANY target, seeing as the GSTL keys and Electronics magnetic keys are identical.

The black magnetic s3 key? Yeah, they're identical. They physical keys, though, are not interchangeable on a store-to-store basis.

How did they steal and what did they steal?

it wasn't the magnetic key.. they stole some ipads and i'm not sure what else went on.. an Electronics TM heard the ipad door slide open and knew where the other Electronics TM was and went running over there. He did recover one IPAD because he demanded that the guy give it to him.. he asked another guy for the IPAD back but he went running through softlines and got away. I just find it interesting that these "random" people had keys to our doors...

You'd need some kind of of a core key if you didn't have the specific key for the display door.
I don't imagine those would be easy to get.

they actually stole some electronic keys earlier this month at a buena park, ca store... they were warning tm at my store to be careful with any type of keys because they stole $10,000 worth of ipods and ect.

The magnetic key can actually be purchased from any number of places, my dad has one that he got from Home Depot. It's a big yellow one without the teeth but otherwise is identical. I tested it out one day and it works on the locking peghooks in the store.

Seriously? What use could anyone have for these, can you buy locking peghooks for your house or something?
