The average home invasion results in over $2,000 worth of property loss. In addition, vandalism or personal injury can be a dangerous side effect of criminal activity. Unfortunately, most common houses have minimum protection with substandard, cheap locks and wooden doorways that can be easily forced open. Protect your home, valuable assets and loved ones by reinforcing your entry doors with specialized equipment and high security lock systems. At QuickPro Locksmith, we customers in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, Suwanee, Brookhaven and other nearby communities defend their property. We want to help you do the same. Here are just a few of the many ways you can help your family avoid a home break in.
The standard pin and tumbler locks installed by landlords and building contractors should be replaced immediately. In today’s world, it’s easier than ever before for criminals to get their hands on lock picking tools, bump keys and free training tutorials. Avoid a compromised lock by getting a high security upgrade. There are many excellent choices available in today’s marketplace, from heavy duty deadbolts to high tech keyless entry systems. Do some research and speak with an experienced locksmith to decide which option is best for your lifestyle and budget.
The next step for better home protection is to install door reinforcement devices. These items are designed to be added onto your door jamb and around your lock’s throws in order to protect and reinforce the wood surrounding it. While lock picking is an important concern for the locks themselves, persistant criminals often break into homes with brute force. If the wood around your entry way is weak, it doesn’t take a lot of force to bust through the jamb completely and gain access to your house. Door reinforcements will create an extra barrier and make it much more difficult for determined burglars to get through your front door.
Installing a smart doorbell is an affordable and effective way to keep your home protected. These new high tech devices are designed with speakers and cameras and will take a snapshot or video of every person who walks onto your porch or tries to get into your home. In addition, your phone will alert you when footage is being taken, so you can speak to the potential criminal at your doorstep and make them think you are home, even if you’re thousands of miles away on vacation. If someone still manages to ignore the doorbell and breaks into your house, you’ll be aware of it right away, and can call the police immediately. Not only will you increase the chances of the thief being arrested, you’ll also be more likely to recover your personal property because the burglar will be identified. Some smart doorbell systems can be integrated with other accessories like outdoor surveillance cameras and alarm systems for enhanced security.
