Virginia Beach LOCK INSTALLATIONS AND UPGRADES

Call upon our nationally renowned locksmiths when you need new locks installed for your home or business!

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don't look at the most obvious security issue when it comes to said locations: are the locks on the home or business out of date?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.

LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES

We Specialize in Both Residential and Business Lock Installations

The first step to updating your locks is to call our offices so that we can do an initial security inspection. We take into account variables such as style, possible weak points in security, and finally, the individual budget for the work. Although we work so competitively that our prices are the lowest that you can find anywhere in the country, we also have a number of different options for people and businesses who don't have the latest advances in security planned out in their budget. Often a good solid deadbolt and quality modern alarm system will do the job just fine.

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.

Our services aren't just limited to homes and businesses-- we also install car door and trunk locks through our car lock replacement service. Our expert locksmiths are ready and equipped with all the tools necessary, 24 hours a day when your security needs it most when a vehicle needs rekeying or new locks.

STANDARD LOCK SYSTEMS WE SERVICE

Deadbolt Locks

Everyone knows the good old fashioned deadbolt. The standard for homes and businesses for over 100 years, the deadbolt works attached to both the door and the wall. On one side, a knob releases the lock; on the other, a key can be used to take the place of the knob. While newer technologies may offer more security, for most homes and many businesses, the traditional deadbolt lock is more than enough to ward off any potential wrongdoers. we service and install a wide variety of deadbolt locks, especially the following:

  • Schlage
  • Gatehouse
  • Kwikset
  • Master Lock

Mortise Deadlocks

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:

  • Yale
  • Belwith
  • Marks
  • Prime-Line
  • Global

 

Modern Lock Systems: High-Tech Security Solutions

 

In recent years, locks have moved whole generations in design. Not only are newer lock systems often more secure than key systems (using a variety of verification methods, they are also cheaper to replace than older key systems.

Keycard Systems

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. Not only can they be programmed to have different access levels, they can also be easily programmed for new users, as well as changed in the case users need to be removed from the system. Along with older technology, keycard systems can add whole new levels to security and access that are simply unparalleled.

Keypad Systems

Keypad systems, like keycards, can be used to limit access to certain users. However, a keycard is not even necessary-- all that is needed is a programmed code for the user to get through. (They can also be used in conjunction with keycards for added security.)

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

Virtually all of today's modern lock systems can be made compatible with phone apps that will alert owners where someone is on your property. With real-time alerting, you have the comfort of knowing when and where everyone in the building is at all times. These locks are capable of working through Wi-Fi and wired systems, and not only will they notify you when you aren't home of attempts to break-in, but the police can also remotely be notified. (After that, make use of our emergency locksmith service.)

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.
