Locksmiths are accustomed to varying times of day when they will get their standard calls. Like the loss of house keys, or an accidental lockout and damage to the lock and/or the key. However, there are many other reasons why you might need the services of a residential locksmith.
Here are 3 uncommon reasons you may need a professional locksmith for your home:
- Consolidating Home Access
If you have a different key for every room in the house – front door, back door, side door, basement door, etc. – you may find it frustrating to keep track of so many keys. You may wish to engage the services of a locksmith to establish single-key access to your home. Plus, if you’re unsure just how many keys or copies of the keys have been made for your home, then it’s an excellent idea to have a professional change the locks on the residence.
- Home Invasion Protection
Crime is on the rise all over the U.S., and home invasions have unfortunately also increased. To protect your home and family, you may wish to consider upgrading the locks in your home and adding a home security system. High-security locks will significantly decrease the chances that you’ll become a victim of a break-in or home invasion.
- Smart Home
Lock technology – just like many other technologies – is becoming “smart” or “connected” and many homes are moving to keyless technology for locking. A smart lock is a mechanical and electronic locking device that opens without a key with an authorized owner’s authentication. The benefit of smart locks includes the ability to remotely grant access to family, friends, and anyone else you might wish to allow into your home (contractors, cleaning personnel, etc.) Smart locks provide secured access with a full record of comings and goings from the premises. They’re accessible via smartphone or other Internet-connected device and offer multiple options for locking and unlocking a home. If you forget a code combination or password for these systems, you may need to call a locksmith to regain access to your smart lock system and reset your passwords and codes.
