Philadelphia NEW: SECURITY AND LOCK INSTALLATION
Call upon our nationally renowned locksmiths when you need new locks installed for your home or business!
Installing a quality solid door lock is the first step to keeping your home or office properly secured. Old locks are often the weakest point in any security setup, as they can be rusted, too many previous users may have had access to keys, or other issues. Making sure that your keys are yours and are up to date is the most important part of maintaining your security. Too many homeowners and businesses forget about security in their planning, putting all of their investments at risk. Perfect security is nearly an impossible goal, but through both planning smartly and making sure to properly assess risk, you can be at ease, without having to worry about leaving your home or business alone when you choose to spend time apart from it. But everything begins with the obvious. Are your door locks secure, or is it time to replace them?
WHY INSTALL NEW LOCKS NOW?
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:
- 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- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged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
- 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

LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES
We Specialize in Both Residential and Business Lock Installations
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
Industry Standard: The Deadbolt
The deadbolt lock is probably the first lock anyone thinks of when they think 'home security'. A lock that bolts into the door with the turn of a knob and opens with a key, most people assume a deadbolt is the only door lock out there (it isn't) but it is popular because it works so well. We stock a full supply of deadbolts from the best companies to obtain them from, including:
- Master Lock

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:
MODERN LOCKS: THE NEXT LEVEL WHEN IT COMES TO SECURITY
In recent years, locks have moved whole generations in design. Not only are newer lock systems often more secure than key systems (using a variety of verification methods, they are also cheaper to replace than older key systems.
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. Besudes being very programmable (meaning room to room security) they are trackable (meaning you know where everyone in the building is) and reprogrammable (so ex-employees can't steal key cards and try to get back in.)
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.)
As technology continues to drop in price, the cost of these amazing systems continues to drop and are now reaching cost parity with traditional lock systems.
