Our mobile locksmiths are passionate to help property owners with their locks and find ways to enhance their security measures. Here are some tips and tricks to help you strengthen your home security and achieve the results you want.
Basic locks and key systems are easy to bypass
Buying and fixing a lock you purchased from your local retail store might sound a cheaper way to get your home secured. However, most of these typical locks are minimum standard locks and modern-day burglars have an arsenal of tools and tricks to easily bypass them. If you want maximum protection against such criminals, then it is essential to upgrade your locks to higher security standards and model. You can also consider additional precautions like installing security cameras to deter burglars and identify criminals who attempt to invade your home.
The quality of doors also matters
If the doors are made from cheap materials, then it’s not hard for a determined burglar to bypass a sophisticated security lock by using brutal force. If your door is worn, old or is made with cheap material, consider a more secure door made with metal or heavy-duty wood.
Rekey the locks after moving into a new home
Did you purchase a previously owned home recently? Then it is highly advisable to immediately rekey or replace the existing locks. You never know how many people have the key of your new home, so it is best to start fresh and take this mandatory step to protect your loved ones.
Never hide a spare key in obvious locations
Most people hide a spare key in their mailboxes, beneath the welcome mats or underneath a rock or bush in nearby garden. It is important to understand that every burglar in the world know about these obvious hiding spots. Having a few spare keys on hand is a good idea but hiding them at places where a criminal can easily lay his hands on them is not advisable. It is better to give the spare keys to a trusted family member, or a friend that you can rely on in an emergency like a lockout situation.
