Change your locks!
Most residential keys can be copied at any hardware store in Bellevue, even if they say “Do not duplicate” on the key! If you have ever entrusted someone with your keys, like a contractor or a pet sitter, even for a temporary time, they could have made copies. There could be someone who has your keys that you don’t even know about, causing a huge risk to the security of your home. A quick and easy fix to this would be to get regular re-keys. A re-key changes the configuration of the pins inside your lock, allowing a new key to work and the old key to stop working, all while keeping the original outside hardware of the lock.
It is a good idea to get your locks rekeyed every so often, but the most common times to get this service are when you move into a new home, after letting someone borrow your keys, or if your keys were stolen/lost. Call us to schedule an appointment to rekey your home any day of the week, even on the weekends. We are also available for emergency rekeys, so if you think someone may have your keys, don’t panic, just call us today and we can secure your home to ensure a good night’s rest!
Home security upgrades
In the past decade, technology has changed a lot of things in Bellevue, and locks are no exception. There are more “smart locks” hitting the market every day. Some locks are designed to be opened with your smartphone. Other types of electronic lock upgrades are keypad locks, which you enter a code into in order to open the lock, or key fob entry locks which take just a touch from a simple and lightweight fob that fits on your keyring. We pride ourselves on staying educated on the constantly evolving market of keypads, digital locks, smartphone connected locks, and other forms of access control. Call and ask for a consultation and our technicians can come to your home and discuss which kind of systems will look great and work best with your current system.
Other scenarios that require a residential locksmith
Key broke in lock — Your lock has always required a little bit of a “jiggle” with the key in order to work. Lately, the lock seems to be getting more sticky and it takes a little bit more force to get the key to turn. Then, without warning, snap, you feel your hand turn but instead of opening the door, you are left holding the head of the key and the blade is missing. It doesn’t take long to realize that the rest of the key is cleanly broken off and still in the lock. It is flush with the rest of the lock with none of it sticking out to grip. Now, you are locked out of your home and even if you have another key, you won’t be able to work the lock with the broken key inside. Call us and a technician will show up within 30 minutes with our key extraction toolkit.
Safe issues — Safes are wonderful high security measures you can take to protect your most prized personal belongings. If you have a safe that is locked but you have forgotten the combination or the combination is not working, we have the ability to drill the safe and enter it.
Most residential safe locks are able to be replaced. If the mechanical dial on your safe is getting worn or you just want a more modern upgrade, you have the option of a digital keypad lock. If your safe is large or bolted in any way, our specialized safe technician can come to your home and upgrade your safe same day.
Access control — What is access control? Access control goes beyond the physical aspect of security and gives you control of the locks in your home from anywhere on the globe via cloud based technology. We can install all of the necessary electronics, wiring, and hardware in order to get you up and running. Unlock the door for your pet sitter, and make sure it is locked again after they leave, all while on your vacation in Italy.
