Albuquerque LOCK INSTALLATIONS AND UPGRADES

When you need to upgrade your security, it's time to call Our certified locksmiths to make sure your security is maximized.

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don't look at the most obvious security issue when it comes to said locations: are the locks on the home or business out of date?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?

For both residences and businesses, in general, security is inherited, meaning that all the security weaknesses are also inherited with the next tenant of a location. In general you don't know how many people have access to your keys, and ultimately how many people have access to your home or business right now. There's a good possibility that an ex-spouse of a previous tenant or disgruntled former employee of a previous business has access to your location right now. And that means security risks that you don't need. In fact there are a number of potential problem spots:

  • 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  • When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged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
  • 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

 

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

We Specialize in Both Residential and Business Lock Installations

The first step to updating your locks is to call our offices so that we can do an initial security inspection. We take into account variables such as style, possible weak points in security, and finally, the individual budget for the work. Although we work so competitively that our prices are the lowest that you can find anywhere in the country, we also have a number of different options for people and businesses who don't have the latest advances in security planned out in their budget. Often a good solid deadbolt and quality modern alarm system will do the job just fine.

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.

We Do Car Lock Installations

As a total security company, we specialize in both individual and fleet security upgrades for your vehicles. You don't call your locksmith to fix your car-- why would you call your mechanic when you need to upgrade your vehicle security? Locks and security are our business and they are what we do. Don't go for substandard locks. We carry a full line of auto security solutions including locks for all model vehicles, so when you need to upgrade your mobile security, we are here to help you do it.

WE INSTALL A WIDE VARIETY OF LOCKS

Deadbolt Locks

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
  • Schlage
  • Gatehouse
  • Kwikset

Mortise Deadlocks

A Mortise Deadlock, at first glance, looks like a deadbolt, but it isn't: a Mortise Deadlock is unlockable on both sides with a key, as opposed to one side having a knob. What this means is that this type of lock is precisely the kind of lock you would use when you want to guarantee that only people authorized to do can get in. Therefore, it's most important to make sure that a lock of this type is used in areas where security is paramount and access is by nature limited (this isn't the sort of lock that is used on a bathroom or kitchen; this is more ideal for private areas not meant to normally be seen by many others. We carry the most important brands of Mortise Deadlock, including the following:

  • Belwith
  • Marks
  • Prime-Line
  • Global
  • Yale

 

MODERN LOCKS: THE NEXT LEVEL WHEN IT COMES TO SECURITY

 

While most homes and businesses can do fine with the average electronic security system and a combination of the locks above, the technology for modern locks is light years ahead of older, physical key systems. Depending on the level of security your home or business needs, some modern lock systems might be exactly what you are looking for.

Keycard 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: keypad systems work very similarly to keycards, but have the advantage of not even having cards but codes. Smart businesses will often double up security by ensuring that users have keycards and codes.

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

Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems: Electronic lock systems can often be used with WiFi to not only give the owner an accurate picture of who is where in a house or business but can also alert owners if there is a security breach. Police can usually be called remotely to the scene and then our emergency locksmith service can survey the breach and repair it.

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!
