It’s 2019 already! The New Year is a chance to start fresh in all aspects of your life, and nothing is more important to put at the top of that to-do list than home security. The quality of your home locking system is going to affect your peace of mind – obviously sub-par, old, or un-serviced locks are going to leave you and your family open to the possibility of break-ins. Break-ins are one of Australia’s most common crimes, so start the New Year right and contact Guv’nor Locksmiths for a full check-up of your home security system.
Before you call us, feel free to do a quick check over of your home’s main weak points, including:
- Security doors
- Main entry/exit doors
Weak Point #1 – Security Doors
Security doors are a great way to keep you, your family and your possessions safe, but in order to be really effective, all the security doors in your home need to be well-serviced and kept in great condition.
When you’re checking your security doors, ask yourself the following questions:
- Does the security door have finger guards to prevent the lock from being tampered with?
- Have triple locks been installed by a licensed professional?
If you’re not sure of the answers to these questions, or if you’re not sure if your security doors are keeping your home safe, contact Guv’nor Locksmiths today and talk to us about your concerns.
Weak Point #2 – Main Entry/Exit Doors
It goes without saying that the main entry and exit doors in your home need to be unyielding in order to keep out intruders. It’s also important to have a viewer/spyhole installed in your front door, so you can see who is outside without having to open your door to potentially undesirable or dangerous people.
Your main entry and exit doors require strong locking mechanisms. For maximum security, dead locks are the best choice. For further safety measures and ease-of-use, all entry and exit door keys should be keyed-alike. This means that you only need one key to open and lock all doors. Talk to Guv’nor Locksmiths today about our locksmith services and ask us about entry and exit door security measures.
Weak Point #3 – Windows
Windows are perhaps one of the more obvious weak points in your home, and if the correct security measures are not in place, intruders are going to be able to more easily enter your home through a window. The windows in your home should have key-operated locks and should all be keyed-alike so that one key can open and lock all windows. Your keys should always be kept in a safe location.
If the windows in your home don’t have these security measures, you may be putting yourself and your family in unnecessary danger from intruders. Contact the team at Guv’nor Locksmiths today and talk about our range of locksmith services that can help your home be more secure.
