Residential Lockout Service
We’re always ready to get you back inside after a lockout with our residential access services. We can then help keep your family safe. As with a vehicle, re-keying all locks is vital in avoiding future burglaries using those missing keys. While we’re there we can make duplicate keys for all you family members.
As you will discover below, besides doors we’re experts in the various locks you may have around your home.
Rekey or Repair Door Locks
We’re pleased to provide economical alternatives to lock replacement. If the lock is damaged or not working, a repair is often all that is needed. Rekeying is also less expensive than installing a new lock. There are many situations where you might want to rekey a lock so that the old keys will no longer work. That’s certainly true if you’ve lost a key or suspect one was stolen. Also, if you’re moving into a new home or apartment you really have no idea how many keys might still be out there, no matter how many the previous occupants returned to you.
At 911 Locksmiths we’re familiar with all the different types of door locks, the most common of which is a single-cylinder deadbolt. If the inside doorknob or lock can be reached through a broken window or mail slot, a double-cylinder deadbolt is a better solution. But that does involve some fire safety considerations. Locks built into doorknobs are easily defeated, so you should have a deadbolt as well.
High Security Locks
There are two facets to high security deadbolt locks. The first may be the use of special keys, often “3-dimensional” rather than the standard flat key with a notched edge. The other facet is the durability and tamper-resistance of the lock itself. That can be achieved through more rugged designs, stronger materials, and additional bolts. “Jimmy-proof” deadbolts provide additional security by interlocking with the door-jamb bracket; they can’t be forced or pulled open from the outside.
Keyless Entry Systems
911 Locksmith is also ready to meet your rekeying, repair, and installation needs for keyless entry systems. Like those of recent automobiles, these systems provided added convenience. The latest models may actually be more secure by avoiding the most vulnerable component, the key cylinder.
Keypad locks have been around for quite a while, particularly in commercial buildings. These use electronic push buttons instead of a key, so once you’ve memorized the code there’s nothing you need to carry around. Some companies, including Yale, have even replaced those buttons with a modern touch screen.
iPhone Remote Control Locks
The digital home has now integrated “iPhone remote locks” into security and home automation systems. These allow access form a smart phone, and some even support “eKeys” that you can electronically send to trusted friends, family, or service providers, and then later revoke permission whenever that seems appropriate. In many cases you can set access schedules, have them alert you to any use, and record who enters and when. Key fobs, just like with recent cars, support entry for anyone without a smart phone. Be sure to check for compatibility; even some major brands support iPhones but not Android phones.
Other Residential Locks
Don’t forget windows! These are usually simple latches inside, but we can provide added protection. For sliding track windows you can install simple stops that fit over the track yourself. 911 Locksmiths can add keyed latches for convenience, security, and child protection. For double-hung windows we can add a locking pin through one sash, and can position it so that the window can be opened slightly for ventilation. We’re also equipped and experienced in adding hinged wedge locks and keyed turnbuckle window locks.
You probably aren’t aware of the different locks you have around the house… until you have a problem. Your front door is probably solid and secure, but patio doors are often a different matter. Outdoor fence and shed padlocks are often security weak points, and are perhaps a bit more likely to need repairs. File and desk locks aren’t used much in the typical home, but if they jam and you can’t get to what you need that can be a big frustration. Is your mailbox secure? Or has it just jammed?
Our experienced locksmiths are ready and equipped to handle all of these residential locks, and more.
Whether for home or business, a safe is often called for to provide burglary and fire protection. We’re experts in choosing the right brand and model of safe for you based on size, tamper security, and fire protection needs. A free-standing safe provides lots of protection, but unless it’s really large a determined thief can haul it away. That’s why we also provide safe installation. A wall safe is a bit more secure, and their biggest advantage in concealment. Although expensive, a safe installed into a concrete slab floor, or even embedded in cement, provides the highest security and may even offer increased fire ratings.
