Areas of Expertise:
A security system is a combination of devices and services which work to protect a residence or business against the threat of invasion or intrusion. Security systems sometimes serve as protection from natural disasters as well. Residential, commercial, and industrial customers alike use security systems to safeguard against theft (burglary) and property damage. Security systems are available in a range of formats, levels, and pricing packages. They may involve professional installation or DIY installation. Whether these systems are intended to protect against a single incident or high threat of invasion at all times, they may involve a number of components, such as video cameras, alarm systems, smart home automation, notifications, smart locks, smart sensors, and more.
A locksmith is a service professional who provides key and lock services. For homeowners and business owners, a locksmith can break a lock, replace locks, duplicate keys, unlock mailboxes, and make replacement keys. Locksmiths are trained professionals who can offer lock-related services without breaking or damaging locks or doors. Some locksmiths may be able to offer the same services for smart locks as well. While breaking into certain locks may mean replacing the lock, this route is still often less costly than alternative entry methods. Security system providers may offer locksmith-related services under plan warranties, which helps users avoid destroying equipment.
Burglar Alarm Installation:
Alarm systems work to alert homeowners or business owners to the threat of intrusion. These systems can be standalone security systems, or work in combination with a larger security system, including home automation. The alarm system serves as the control panel for all sensors involved in the security system, meaning that sensors report to the alarm system so the alarm can sound in case of intrusion. Typically, alarm systems have sensors which trip when motion is detected, such as opening of doors or windows. When the sensors are tripped, the alarm sounds within seconds. When paired with home automation systems, residents or business owners may receive notifications regarding the alarm. Alarm systems may be controlled by the home security base or hub.
Access Control Services:
Access control systems are the main hub of security systems, providing access to or denial of entry to a given area. Access control is the combination of hardware and software in a security system that helps secure points of entry. These systems may include a security system’s control panel (its hub or computer), the system reader, and its smart locks/electric locks — as well as the components of these system parts. Typically, these systems require professional installation due to the wiring and connection requirements.
Safe Installation Services:
A security safe, also called a home safe, lockbox, or simply a safe, may hold a homeowner’s or business owner’s valuables, from birth certificates, wills, and vehicle titles, to business documents, such as licensing copies. Some people opt for standalone safes, while others elect security safes that are larger and heavier. Such safes may require professional installation to ensure proper setup and security. Many providers offer safe installation services to ensure proper setup.
Smart Lock Installation:
A smart lock is an electromechanical locking device that achieves locking and unlocking operations on a door. It receives instructions from an approved device, such as a smartphone or tablet, using a wireless protocol to complete the authorization process. Smart locks can grant remote access using a mobile app or key fob, without requiring a traditional key. It also monitors access and sends notifications for different events related to the status of the device. Smart locks can enhance security systems while adding convenience and utility to its owner. They are considered an extension of home automation, being also able to work together with a smart doorbell to let the user see who is at the front door. Smart locks are designed to replace traditional bolt locks on a door. Some devices are designed for DIY installation, while others may need a professional installation service. A professional installer will connect the smart lock onto previous mechanical clamps, upgrading simple latches or deadbolts. Many smart locks are battery-operated, while others come with external jacks to hook up to a 9-volt battery, for a more reliable backup power source. The expert technician can get all the installation and network set up, guiding the customer in how to use all the features that come with a smart lock.
Commercial locksmith services for businesses and offices provide advanced protection measures, from securing an entire building, a retail store, or a small office. Commercial door locks come in many different styles to fit the company’s security needs that require a professional locksmith to install any of these locks. Commercial door locksmiths can gain entrance to a building without damaging the lock in any way. Their services include unlocking many types of door locks, such as stainless-steel door locks, automatic electronic door locks, revolving doors, warehouse door locks, and more. Many commercial locksmiths offer 24 hr licensed services to handle any building lockouts, providing fast response time. The service spectrum varies from new lock installations to lock repair and change, commercial door repair, master re-keying, and digital locks installing and reprogramming.
