Residential Locksmith Services in Connecticut:
Every 15 seconds in the United States a home burglary takes place.
Worse yet, 1 out of every 5 homes in America is the victim of violent home invasion or burglary at some point in time. If that makes you think of a clad-in-black mission-impossible type stealthily cutting into a back window with a diamond headed circular saw, think again—most of those burglars walk right through the front door. The good news? There’s a lot you can do to make sure you’re not the next statistic:
A word to the wise—Make sure all of your family members are well rehearsed in responding to strangers at the front door. Criminals often pose as maintenance workers or other authorities to gain easy entry. If you feel threatened, don’t be afraid to call the police.
Whether moving into a new home or one previously inhabited, you just can never know who has had access to house keys or what has been done to the locks in the past. Do previous residents or visitors still have keys to these locks? Are the keys original masters or duplicates that may be more difficult to copy in the future? For safety, convenience and peace of mind, always install new home locks or ask your residential locksmith to rekey the locks before moving to a new house or apartment. Oh—and don’t forget the garage door opener!
One solution you’ll want to consider in your residential security strategy is a master lock system by which one ‘master key’ can grant access to all locks within the system. This allows selected individuals to have consistent access to all locks within the system, without carrying an unruly number of keys around. Say a family member loses their bedroom door key, or an emergency makes it necessary for Mom or Dad to enter a teenage child’s bedroom….you’ll be glad that a locksmith installed a master lock system for you.
