Bad Tricks of the Trade Learned Online
The internet is a marvellous place filled with useful information and a whole database of helpful hints and tips from recipes to history, family records and gimmicky ‘death calculators’. However not everything on the internet is perfectly legal and it is becoming increasingly easy to buy lock picking tools and hacks online or at online stores.
It may be important to recognise these tools as they could be used to gain entry into your home without you ever realising. As soon as a product or feature is hailed as ‘pick-proof’ or ‘flawless’, people flock in droves to try and disprove this theory and heavy duty locks are no exception. While you may have done your research and invested in the ‘strongest lock ever’ there may be a simple tool available online that can render all your research useless in around 30 seconds flat.
It is important to enlist the help of a professional locksmith as they will be able to provide you with essential advice and information on the best style of lock for your home. Page Security is constantly focused on remaining up to date with the latest security technologies and intruder alarms to help prevent lock-picking tools from ever gaining any traction. Know thy enemy.
Are you at risk? What your door can say to potential thieves
Essentially your risk level is dependent on the area in which you live, however in many cases the design of your home can have an effect on how intruders ‘perceive’ it. For example it has been found that homes with a front porch are less likely to be targeted because there is an extra ‘security layer’ between the street and the entrance to the home. A front porch is useful as it can be lockable, but also have its own letterbox so that parcels can still be posted without posing a risk to the interior of your home.
Likewise frosted glass doors and doors with a small window or some stained glass at the top of the door can also attract unwanted visitors. Anything that gives intruders a ‘look’ into your home is worth reconsidering, or at least warrants toughened or laminated glass panels. Wooden doors can be more vulnerable but can be sufficiently secured with deadlocks and heavy duty galvanised bolts and hinges. It is important to ensure that your wooden door is well kept and maintained as the strongest locks in the world will do little to protect a door that is rotting or weakened due to damp or other weather conditions.
uPVC doors often have multi-lock locking systems which provide several locks to secure the door. These are built into the door to increase security, but bear this in mind as the structure of the door is not built to support any more locks. Link chains are recommended if you are used to unsolicited visitors, or you can install a spy-hole to get a look at your callers before answering (or not) the door. If you would like more detailed information on the risk to your home, if you are in the Haywards Heath area or across the south east of England, contact us today.
Helpful Security Tips
Using professional security techniques and the latest intruder alarm technology Page Security can fully secure your home against further intrusion, but it is better still to make sure that your house does not present a risk or an opportunity for thieves. There are a number of simple design ideas and tips that you can put into place that will deter thieves and prevent your property from being targeted.
For example installing a security camera – even a non-functional one – works as a fantastic deterrent because it acts as a ‘warning sign’ to potential thieves. They will be less likely to risk exposure if they notice a camera mounted on a wall, as it could present video evidence of attempted forced entry. In the same way a motion sensor attached to a light could also act as a similar deterrent, as it prevents intruders from making a clear getaway.
Another important feature to consider is your letterbox. You may want to consider getting a ‘mail box’ that can be mounted to the wall beside your home, as thieves can peer into open letterboxes or even break locks through letterboxes, thus gaining entry into the home. This is a common theme across Haywards Heath and the south east. A lockable front porch with a letterbox is therefore useful, as it provides a physical barrier between visitors and the entrance to your home. There are also internal cover plates or bottomless letter baskets available which will block the view of anyone looking in through the letter box and restrict access by the letterbox. You should never install a letterbox near to the locking mechanism of a door.
If your door is adjacent to a large window, or there is a visible key fob with keys hanging from it, this can attract unwanted guests. If thieves can see a bowl or key hanger with keys on it, they will be more likely to take the risk as it saves them the effort of having to search for key; they are already there and ripe for the taking. If you need to have the keys located near the front door, place them in a sealed box or out of view of the letterbox or nearby windows to deter intruders.

A Client from Haywards Heath Describes Their Experience With Page Security Locksmith Haywards Heath
If you have just moved into a new place, you should call a locksmith and have them change the locks right away. Even if the former owners seem trustworthy, you don’t want someone walking around with keys to your home. The price of a lock is small compared to the need for safety for you and your family.
When you call a locksmith company, pay attention to how they answer the phone. You want to hear the company’s name. If they do not provide one, ask them for it. If you get the run around, and the name is not given, move on to someone else. They could be running a scam.
Do not let the locksmith begin work until he or she has given you an estimate. Rather than simply getting a verbal estimate, insist that the locksmith write the quote down on paper. This way, you have proof of the number that you were quoted. As long as you agree with the price, work can commence at that point.
Look at the Better Business Bureau website to find out about a locksmith’s reputation. The website will give you information on customers’ past experiences with the locksmith. Check ALOA.org to make sure your locksmith is approved.
Make sure the locksmith you hire is properly licensed and insured. While this may not impact his ability to fix you up a new set of keys, it offers a lot in terms of credibility and trust. Make sure anyone you use is up to date on all the paperwork and as professional as possible.
If you have time, do a quick Internet search of the locksmith you are considering calling. There are lots of reputable websites that provide reviews online. Make sure the review website itself isn’t actually associated with a locksmith. You should also go to your local BBB before you decide on a locksmith.
Program the number of your locksmith into your cell phone so you can have it with you at all times. You don’t want to end up stuck away from home with no way to access a good locksmith. Make sure you talk to them about whether or not the rates will be different if you are stuck on the road.
Before you hire a local locksmith, check your local laws. Many states have regulations in place to protect consumers from fraud and sub-par work. For instance, California mandates licensing. Know how the laws in your area are set up to protect you and make sure that they do! You’ve got too mcuh at stake not to.
Now that you know how to find a great locksmith, you just have to do it! Take the time now so that you’ll be prepared if something bad happens. When you’re left on your doorstep with your keys gone, you’ll be glad to have their number already in your speed dial.
