Simple Security Measures – Part 1
In our last few blogs we have been discussing home security and how it can benefit you in two ways: First, you will have better security thus deterring vandals and secondly, your insurance rates might decrease because there is less of a chance of your home being broken into and, as a result, your insurance having to pay for damages. There are several ways that your local locksmith in The Woodlands can help:
- Rekeying the Locks – a less expensive, but in many cases, just as effective as replacing locks. This is a great option for someone who may have lost a key or recently bought a home.
- Electronic Locks – Locksmiths suggest these for those living in The Woodlands for the reason that it is easy to deactivate lost or no longer needed keys thus allowing for greater security
- Check for Damaged Locks – We also suggest checking your locks for damage or needed maintenance. Often deadbolts that don’t fully extend are tell-tale signs that your locks need to be replaced and doors or keys that stick might need a bit of maintenance or complete replacement.

Practical Security Measures
There are ways beyond just changing the locks, installing electronic locking systems, and repairing broken locking systems. Here are some other ways to keep your home safe.
Lock All Your Locks
This may seem like an obvious suggestion that need not be mentioned in this blog post, but there are many who fail to lock their homes because they simply think they don’t need to. Locking your door, windows, garage, and even your balcony doors is a must. When burglars are looking for a home to break into they look for the easiest option and leaving your doors or windows unlocked is an open invitation.
Turn On a Light
Lights on in a home are a natural deterrent for those will ill intent, even when there are no cars in the driveway. If you are going to be home late, turn on a light that will be on while you are away and when you get home not only giving the illusion that someone is home, but it will give you a clear view of your room so you can be sure you are entering a safe home.
