Chicago NEW: SECURITY AND LOCK INSTALLATION
Just remember: We are the one name you need to remember when it's time to overhaul your residential or business security.
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don't look at the most obvious security issue when it comes to said locations: are the locks on the home or business out of date?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?
Whether you are a home or business owner, unless you built your property from the ground up, chances are high that there was a previous owner. Most people simply hand over the keys to the next tenant or owner, and the keys never get changed. In such a case, there is a strong possibility that the keys were copied. There's a possibility that in fact there could be dozens, if not hundreds of keys milling about that could open the doors to your home or business. It's very possible no one actually knows how many copies of a set of keys there are. And that's only one of the many situations where one should consider installing a new set of locks for their home or business. Others examples include:
- Moving to a new home
- If your vehicle was broken into and a copy of the keys were taken
- Your keys are lost or stolen
- After a break-in that damages your lock
- When your previous employee 'forgets' to return the office keys
- When you have to relocate to a new office
- A roommate moved out but retained possession of the keys
- When you need to upgrade your security system
- As part of your home or office renovations
- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged
- Divorce, death, or a new tenant
When it's time to install new locks for your home or for your office for any reason (or your vehicle, for that matter) our expert locksmiths are here to help for your next lock install.
LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES
Masters of Both Business and Residential Security
We will always start every security installation with an inspection and assessment to make sure that all aspects of your security are covered by the work we do. When you have a glaring hole in your security, we will be the first to both inform you and offer potential solutions, so you aren't just left wondering what to do. Not every solution is the same: in some cases the solution may be as simple as a few deadbolts and a home security system. But will every system work like that?
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.

STANDARD LOCK SYSTEMS WE SERVICE
Enter 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:

The Next Level: The Mortise Deadlocks
Similar in appearance to the deadbolt, the Mortise Deadlocks adds another layer of practical security. To open a Mortise Deadlock, you need a key for either side of the door. These locks are particularly useful when dealing with rooms in which no one except the keyholder should have access. Instead of a knob, there is another keyhole, guaranteeing that no one on either side can grant access they don't have. This is especially useful for rooms in which security must be carefully maintained internally as well as externally (unlike a regular house lock, for example-- you would need a lock to get in, but once inside probably don't want extra security in the kitchen. We use the best Mortise Deadlock systems in the industry, including:
High-Tech Lock Systems: the Latest in Security Technology
When it's time to get to the next level in residential or business security, it's time to go electronic. Nothing in the world even comes close. You want the best security in the digital age and that means you want to consider some of the systems below, because sometimes a simple deadbolt and basic security system just won't cut it anymore.
Keycard Systems: a keycard system is based around electronic and magnetic locks that can be accessed through the tap of a card, as opposed to the use of a physical key. Not only can they be programmed to have different access levels, they can also be easily programmed for new users, as well as changed in the case users need to be removed from the system. Along with older technology, keycard systems can add whole new levels to security and access that are simply unparalleled.
Keypad systems, like keycards, can be used to limit access to certain users. However, a keycard is not even necessary-- all that is needed is a programmed code for the user to get through. (They can also be used in conjunction with keycards for added security.)
Fingerprint and Retina Scans
Fingerprint and Retina Scan Systems: We see them in big offices, and we see them in movies, and now they're here: facial (eye) scans and fingerprints are showing up on phones and other devices: don't your home or your business deserve the same security?
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!
