SECURITY RESOLUTIONS FOR 2021 AND BEYOND
The New Year is the perfect time to audit your home or business security to see if you could benefit from amping up the safety and security of your home. In today’s day and age of digital and smart security solutions, the options for both home and commercial security are endless. From smart doorbells to state-of-the-art security camera systems, The Flying Locksmiths has the security solutions you need to keep your loved ones and valuables safe & secure all year long.
INSTALL NEW DEADBOLTS
Deadbolt locks are one of the more traditional security solutions that deliver unbeatable physical protection from potential intruders. If the exterior locks on your home are outdated, your home is at risk for a security breach. The very first thing a burglar does when casing a house is to check the door locks. By installing deadbolt locks, you can avoid becoming a victim of a home break-in as deadbolts are very difficult to breach.
INSTALL A SMART DOORBELL
With the increasing advancements in technology, smart doorbells are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners as an added layer of protection – especially in homes with young children. Most smart doorbells are equipped with a built-in camera system so that you can screen your home’s visitors before even approaching the door.
ADD DOOR ALARMS
In addition to large barking dogs, burglars hate door alarms. If a burglar were to bypass a lock on one of your exterior doors that’s outfitted with an alarm, they would quickly run off as the loud sound emitted from the alarm will notify you that someone is trying to get in. Door alarms can be placed on all types of doors including sliding patio doors. Once you’ve installed alarms on your exterior doors, you could display a yard sign or adhere window decals which say your house is protected by a home security system. Burglars usually bypass homes with visible alarm signs posted and move on to other properties that don’t have them.
INSTALL ANTIMICROBIAL DOOR HARDWARE
Let’s face it, the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to be a concern for most of 2021, make sure your home or business is prepared by installing antimicrobial door hardware. The Flying Locksmiths partners with Allegion for the highest standard in antimicrobial door hardware. We offer hardware for panic and exit devices, push/pull locks, levers, locks, biometric meters, and other door accessories. These products are coated with a silver ion solution antimicrobial coating. While these products are not designed to be a substitute for good hygiene practices, they can help to keep bacteria from spreading.
UPGRADE TO A BIOMETRIC SECURITY SYSTEM
Biometric scanners are not unbreakable security devices, but they are amongst one of the best features to include in a robust security system designed to eliminate any potential avenue of infiltration. Because the “keys” are linked to a physical object, it becomes much more difficult for the key to fall into the hands of an unintended user. The data images are encrypted to protect the lock, leaving it up to hackers to find the perfect match for a complex biological design. Biometric Security Systems are also COVID-19 friendly, allowing for contact-free access to ensure the health and safety of employees.
KEEP YOUR VALUABLES IN A SAFE
If you keep valuables inside your home such as jewelry, small electronic devices, cash, etc. then you should consider keeping these things securely locked away in a home safe. There are many types and sizes of safes on the market which are ideal for homes. If a thief were to enter your home when you’re not there, they could never gain access to the items you have inside the safe.
