Louisville NEW: SECURITY AND LOCK INSTALLATION

When you need to upgrade your security, it's time to call Our certified locksmiths to make sure your security is maximized.

Most people want to ensure that their homes and businesses are properly secured, but they don't look at the most obvious security issue when it comes to said locations: are the locks on the home or business out of date? Are they old, or broken? Most importantly, who has the keys? Many older locks have keys that have been copied dozens of times, thus creating a security risk. Making sure that you have the best security possible means it's time to start exploring new locks and security systems for your home or business. With a new and professionally installed security system, you can feel safe in your home as well as confident that your business interests are secure. Security is often one of the most overlooked aspects of daily life, so is that really the smartest way to protect your home or business? Instead, take a moment to consider a few things.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CHANGE THE LOCKS?

The best time to change the locks is always earlier than we expect. 'Changing the locks after the first break-in' is a guaranteed way to make it happen. Homeowners and business owners often don't know how many of these old locks have hundreds, if not thousands of keys floating around. Don't let yourself become a victim: call us right now to make sure that your business assets are protected.

LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES

We Specialize in Both Residential and Business Lock Installations

The first step to updating your locks is to call our offices so that we can do an initial security inspection. We take into account variables such as style, possible weak points in security, and finally, the individual budget for the work. Although we work so competitively that our prices are the lowest that you can find anywhere in the country, we also have a number of different options for people and businesses who don't have the latest advances in security planned out in their budget. Often a good solid deadbolt and quality modern alarm system will do the job just fine.

What this doesn't mean is to run off to the local hardware store and just buy the cheapest deadbolt. Different doors work best with certain types of deadbolts, and unless you are experienced in installing locks, it is best to call in a professional to do the installation so that the door is locked properly. The biggest weaknesses in home and business security are often the result of user error, and often a poorly or incorrectly installed lock can be the cause of a break-in or security breach later. Instead of dealing with the danger and risk of doing it incorrectly, call on our professional, certified locksmiths today to install your lock correctly.

WE INSTALL A WIDE VARIETY OF LOCKS

Industry Standard: The Deadbolt

Everyone knows the good old fashioned deadbolt. The standard for homes and businesses for over 100 years, the deadbolt works attached to both the door and the wall. On one side, a knob releases the lock; on the other, a key can be used to take the place of the knob. While newer technologies may offer more security, for most homes and many businesses, the traditional deadbolt lock is more than enough to ward off any potential wrongdoers. we service and install a wide variety of deadbolt locks, especially the following:

  • Kwikset
  • Master Lock
  • Schlage
  • Gatehouse

Mortise Deadlocks

While similar to deadbolt locks, Mortise Deadlocks add an additional layer of security by providing security on both sides of the door. If someone manages to pry a door open enough or get their hand around the knob of a deadbolt lock, they can get through. By contrast, a Mortise Deadlock system requires a key on both sides of the door, meaning that one cannot open the door on either side without a key. Because of their design they also usually use stronger mechanisms in the door and the frame, meaning that they usually also last longer than the standard deadbolt mechanism. We use the top brands for Mortise Deadlock systems in the industry, such as:

  • Belwith
  • Marks
  • Prime-Line
  • Global
  • Yale

 

Modern Lock Systems: High-Tech Security Solutions

 

While most homes and businesses can do fine with the average electronic security system and a combination of the locks above, the technology for modern locks is light years ahead of older, physical key systems. Depending on the level of security your home or business needs, some modern lock systems might be exactly what you are looking for.

Keycard Systems

The immediate successor to the physical key, the keycard system is designed to make security simpler on the user end. Instead of a key (though physical keys can also be placed as backups), keycards allow the user to swipe to enter. They can have multiple points of access so that access can be restricted from one area for some users and are both programmable and reusable, meaning that an ex-employee can be locked out, even if he steals a keycard.

Keypad Systems

Keypad Systems: keypad systems are relatively similar to keycards in that they are programmable on multiple levels, but use codes to open doors that are entered on pinpads instead of a key card system. Keypad systems are popular in conjunction with keycard systems because even if a potential troublemaker has one, he will probably have trouble gaining both.

Fingerprint and Retina Scans

The ultimate in home and business security, fingerprint systems limit opening of the doors to specific individuals in the system. Virtually impossible to beat, fingerprint locks make it impossible to get into an area unauthorized. While the expense is considerably higher, only thieves and crooks on the level of comic book villains and international spies are going to even try to get through.

Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems

Virtually all of today's modern lock systems can be made compatible with phone apps that will alert owners where someone is on your property. With real-time alerting, you have the comfort of knowing when and where everyone in the building is at all times. These locks are capable of working through Wi-Fi and wired systems, and not only will they notify you when you aren't home of attempts to break-in, but the police can also remotely be notified. (After that, make use of our emergency locksmith service.)

The best part about electronic security systems is that technology prices continue to bring down the price of newer device locks to where they are even competitive with standard lock systems!
