As we come into the new year of 2017- an era of technology, we are being introduced to newer apps, gadgets, and other technological features that help make our lives easier.
Over the years, I have seen how the industry is moving forward from traditional locks to updated smarter locks and security products designed to protect us better. This new age of locks set a new standard in the locksmith industry. Locks can now be controlled by a smart phone or a remote and are built from better materials with a different way of key configuration to make them almost unbreakable.
Currently, many homeowners still use the traditional locks from last century that are not protecting them the way that they used to. With today’s technology, most burglars are able to learn how a lock is built and how to pick the lock without making any noise or damage to your home. They can easily purchase the basic tools they need online without any license or ID and break into homes.
As a locksmith, I’ve witnessed many homeowners that were robbed because they did not have the proper security. In most cases, it happened when they were at work or on vacation and came home to their valuable possessions being stolen. It’s really important that as we keep up with the new technology that we also keep our home security up to date to keep us safe from these cases.
My recommendation to you, as I do in my own home, is to make sure that you have the proper locks that keep the unwanted out at any time.
