New Orleans OUR NEW LOCK INSTALLATION SERVICES
Just remember: We are the one name you need to remember when it's time to overhaul your residential or business security.
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don't look at the most obvious security issue when it comes to said locations: are the locks on the home or business out of date?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:
- 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- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged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
- After a break-in that damages your lock
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
Masters of Both Business and Residential Security
When you call us, we send over a specialist to perform an initial security assessment by request. We use a multi-point system to determine potential security weaknesses and where your security itself needs upgrading. We have a full line of security solutions for every home or business, from the most basic and affordable to the highest-level security options available. The reason for this is because we believe quality home security is everyone's right. Not everyone needs a fingerprint scanner; for the average household a decent security system and deadbolts will fill all their security needs.
While many people will see security as simply heading down to the hardware store and buying a deadbolt on sale, this is never a good idea. In the first place, you have to know how to install a lock properly. In the second, you have to know which lock will fit which door. And if you don't install the lock properly it may not function as it's supposed to, thus providing diminished protection for the place it was installed. Because we have the experience and the know-how, our professional locksmiths can make sure your home or business is secure instead of hastily cobbled 'do it yourself' solutions.

STANDARD LOCK SYSTEMS WE SERVICE
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:

Mortise Deadlock: One Lock, Two Keys For Added Security
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:
High-Tech Lock Systems: the Latest in Security Technology
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: 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 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.
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.
