5 Benefits of Installing Keypad Locks on Your Home or Business

Don't like keys? Keypad smart locks are the solution!

Improve your home or business security! Quality door lock are vital for the security  of your home and business but keeping people out is just one aspect of good security. What's the other? Being able to let the right people in and access secure areas at the right time!  Traditional keys are an all-or-nothing solution. Keys allow a person access at any time without limitations or control. Also, something we've all experienced - keys or can be lost, stolen or forgotten.  Forgotten or lost keys are more than just an inconvenience; a lost key may end up in the possession of the wrong erson. Not only is your security compromised, you can also compromise the reputation of your business and trust with customers.  What happens when an ex-employee, home service provider, friend or relative who has a key but now no longer needs access? They may not return the key or if they do,  are you sure that a copy wasn't made? Keys can be easily copied, lost or never returned,  and with standard locks, the only resolution is to have your locks changed or the cylinders rekeyed and then have all new keys cut and distributed to only then have the same scenario play out over and over again costing you valuable time and money every time. Below are five benefits to having keypad locks or smart locks installed:

5 Benefits of Keypad Locks and Smart Locks:

Keyless Entry

Keyless door access means no more keys! No more losing your keys, searching for keys when you're in a hurry, locking yourself out because you forgot your keys. No more pat-down panic checking your pockets to make sure your keys are there or dumping out bags and purses looking for your keys. And, with Bluetooth smart lock you may not have to do anything at all, just walk up to the door and it will unlock for you!

Access Codes

Individual custom access codes! Many smart door locks also have the benefit of being able to custom program individual codes so that each person, service provider or department that needs access to your house, offices, storage closets,  and other secured areas can have their own unique access code.

Access Schedule

Control access times! Not everyone need full access all the time. Many affordable smart locks enable you to add schedule times to the codes you assign to only provide access at set times. So if you have a house cleaning service that only needs to enter your home one day a week, during specific times or a business with employees that only need daytime access and supply delivery personnel that only need access to your office building at nigh, simply set up individual access during those times.

Changeable Entry Codes

Make new codes not new keys! No more need for people to return keys or having to change locks and cut new keys every time a key is lost or an employee quits! Simply delete old codes and make new codes for new employees, friends or family members!

Access Alerts

Instant alerts and notifications! Want to be notified whenever a specific door is opened and by whom? Many door smart locks come with free apps that will send you alerts whenever a door is opened, who opened it and keep access records.

How do you change a lock on a door?

That’s a question we get a lot. Installing a new door lock, while not difficult, different locks, doors and uses may have different requirements and tools to do the job right. There are a few questions that need to be asked before that question can be answered:

  1. What type of door? Is this an outside door or inside door? Is the door made of wood, metal or a metal door with a wood core?
  2. Fresh or existing install? Is there already a lock on the door or will this be a fresh install on a new door or door that has never had a lock on it?
  3. What type of lock? Do you want to swap out an existing lock for the same type or is this an upgrade to a different style of knob, handle or lock? There are all kinds of new high-security locks and smart locks for the home with keypads and Bluetooth technology.
  4. Do you really need to change the lock? Many time you don’t need to replace the entire lock, you only need to replace the pins in the existing lock for it to work like new. This is called rekeying and can be done quicker and much more affordably that a complete lock replacement.

How to open a locked car door without using a key

If you’ve ever locked yourself out of your car you know how frustrating that can be! Late for work, locked out of your car in a mall parking lot or stranded late at night, being locked out of your vehicle can ruin your day or even be dangerous. Car doors security and auto lock technology are continually improving and getting back into your vehicle quickly and without damaging the vehicle can be difficult, especially if you don’t have the right tools and experience. Our experienced auto locksmith technicians are trained and have the proper tools to quickly open your locked car door. Depending on your make and model of vehicle will dictate how we cat you back into your car. Listed below are a few different methods for opening a locked car without using the keys.

Pick the Lock and Auto Jigglers

Depending on the make, model and year of your vehicle, some technicians may be able to unlock the door with special lock picking tools. Using a tension tool and picks, they can move the pins to pick the door lock. You could also use a jiggler which is sort of a pre-made generic type key that comes in set for specific vehicle makes. Through trial and error you can test and “jiggle” each on to see if it works in your lock. Lock picking and jigglers may not work on newer cars with precision laser cut keys or transponder keys.

Slim Jim

Popular in movies and TV shows, this is probably what most people imagine when it comes to opening locked car doors. Unlike picking, a slim jim doesn’t try to open the lock itself but opens the door by moving the mechanism in the door. The slim jim is a long flat piece of metal with a notch on the end that you slide down inside the door and hook onto the door latch mechanism and pull it open. Again, like picking, this may not work on newer cars and is usually not recommended to even ty on newer cars as it may damage electronic locks and door airbags.

Wedge & Reach

One of the quickest and easiest ways to open a locked car door and without risk of damaging the lock itself is to use tools to wedge open the door at the window and then use a reach tool to open the lock from inside the car. One method of wedging the door slightly open is to use a thin airbag that can be inserted into the door and inflated to create a gap. Then using a long bendable arm tool you can then reach inside the vehicle and unlock the door. See the video below for quick demonstration of this method.

How to rekey a door lock

What is Lock Rekeying and How to Rekey a Door Lock

What does rekeying a lock mean?

Rekeying a lock is simply the process of changing the pins and springs in the cylinder of an existing lock. Over time and use the springs and pins can become worn and cause the lock to stop working, become difficult to turn with the key, or even become so worn out that the lock can be open with any key that fits into the cylinder.

What are the benefits of rekeying a lock?

There are a couple benefits to rekeying a lock. The first benefit is cost. A professional locksmith can determine if you need to completely replace a lock or if it can simply be rekeyed. Rekeying is just changing the pins and springs in the lock cylinder which is quicker and cheaper than replacing the entire lock. The second benefit is that you can rekey the lock to work with your existing keys or rekey all your locks to work with a single master key.

How do you rekey a lock?

To rekey a lock you will need a kit for your specific lock brand. You’ll need top pins, bottom pins, cylinder follower, remover, gauge detector, springs, and other tools for removing the lock and reinstalling it.  Rekeying involves removing the lock cylinder and replacing the pins and springs to match the cuts in your key. Below is a video in which a CallOrange locksmith technician demonstrates the process:

If you would like to have a professional rekey your door locks and deadbolts for you, give CallOrange a call today; we’re available 24 hours a day! We can rekey your locks, create master key systems and provide discounts for rekeying of multiple locks.

How to get started in Home Automation

What is Home Automation & How To Get Started

What is home automation?

Home automation enables you to control your household features such as lighting, temperature, security and more all through a single control panel or internet device such as your smart phone, table or computer. Beside just convenience of having control f your home through a single device, automation can save you money by improving your home’s efficiency and security.

How do you get started with home automation?

The great thing about getting started with home automation is that you can start small and it can be done affordably while still providing great benefits. When setting up your home automation system you can start with just the basics and over time add on to your system as needed. A basic home automation and security system usually starts with a control panel (you can usually also use a computer, table and/or smart phone), door and window sensors for alarm security and a smart thermostat for temperature control. These devices are relatively affordable and can either be set up by yourself or quickly and easily by an installation professional. Just these few basic devices will enable you to secure your home, monitor activity and control temperature such as being able to turning up your heat or air conditioning minute before you arrive home.

After your basic home automation system is set up you can then add additional devices such as video cameras, smart smoke and heat detectors, smart carbon monoxide detectors, smart light bulbs that enable you to set timers or control your lighting from your phone. You can also install smart electronic door locks that can open doors automatically when you approach the door with your Bluetooth device or create custom key codes that you can use to track who comes and goes and to provide for visitors that can automatically change or expire on a specific day and time.

There lot’s of information to help you get started in setting up your home automation system.
