Cincinnati OUR NEW LOCK INSTALLATION SERVICES
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?
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:
- 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- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged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
- After a break-in that damages your lock
- When your previous employee 'forgets' to return the office keys
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
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?
The reality is that most people aren't fully prepared to deal with the implications of their security. It's a nice idea, but most folks have locks that haven't been replaced since they moved in, with hundreds of copies of their keys out in the wild. Is this the kind of security you want? More importantly, is this the kind of security your loved ones deserve? If you agree the answer is no, it's time to call the professionals.

STANDARD LOCK SYSTEMS WE SERVICE
Enter The Deadbolt
The long-time standard of personal and business security, the deadbolt lock is familiar to everyone. Most homes and many businesses are equipped with locks that are built into the door and the wall. Of course, newer technologies help to offer even more security such as digital locks, but the deadbolt for at least some time remains the most common lock technologies (though we are equipped to set up even the latest technological advances in security.) We service a variety of brands of locks, including:
- Master Lock
Call Us 24/7 for Service At Your Location:
While similar to deadbolt locks, Mortise Deadlocks add an additional layer of security by providing security on both sides of the door. If someone manages to pry a door open enough or get their hand around the knob of a deadbolt lock, they can get through. By contrast, a Mortise Deadlock system requires a key on both sides of the door, meaning that one cannot open the door on either side without a key. Because of their design they also usually use stronger mechanisms in the door and the frame, meaning that they usually also last longer than the standard deadbolt mechanism. We use the top brands for Mortise Deadlock systems in the industry, such as:
Modern Lock Systems: High-Tech Security Solutions
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.
The immediate successor to the physical key, the keycard system is designed to make security simpler on the user end. Instead of a key (though physical keys can also be placed as backups), keycards allow the user to swipe to enter. They can have multiple points of access so that access can be restricted from one area for some users and are both programmable and reusable, meaning that an ex-employee can be locked out, even if he steals a keycard.
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
Fingerprint and Retina Scan Systems: The ultimate in total security, these systems are designed to ensure that no one gets in without authenticating their very existence. These are high-enough security devices to be used with high-level government and private-sector offices.
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems: With the power of the mobile app, owners can actually see who is coming in and going out, as well as see if someone has breached security defenses remotely. Thankfully these apps also have a way to call the police if something goes wrong-- and give you a chance to call our locksmiths to find out how to beef up the weak link in the chain.
The best part of this is that with the speed with which these new locks developed and advances in technology, prices are continuing to drop and become more in line with the prices of more traditional security systems.
