Tips For How To Handle Home Invasion

Our Mobile Locksmiths Unit Provides Residential Locksmith Services In a Home At Miami Beach

Worse than a break-in, nothing is scarier than when someone uses violence to forcibly enter your property. During a burglary, the culprits are looking for money or other financial gain whilst during a home invasion the motivation is often more sinister. How can you limit the risks and maintain the upper hand? What’s the best way to deal with them if they do occur?

Knowledge

Any experienced locksmith will tell you that knowing your property is the first step towards preventing all types of issues. Security audits are a type of service offered by these professionals and can show any weak spots such as garage doors, windows, gates, basement entrances and back doors. With this information in hand, you can improve security and vastly limit the risk of a home invasion.

One strong lock isn’t enough

A strong lock might be enough to deter burglars but when someone has set their mind on forcibly and violently entering your home, that lock isn’t likely to be strong enough. These individuals aren’t concerned with causing damage and will use any means possible. On the contrary, one of the only things that deters home invaders is the idea of getting identified or caught. That’s why we recommend utilizing additional layers of security such as window sensors, security gates and doors or camera systems. All these types of technology alert you to the fact that someone is coming and give you time to react accordingly.

What to do?

Get to the safest place possible, whether that is inside or outside of your property. Once you are safe, the next thing you need to do is contact the police. If a home invasion is ongoing, tell them so and this will prioritize their response.

Pick up the phone

If you’ve ever experienced a home invasion you will know the feeling of terror and will naturally be looking to prevent it from happening again!

After the ordeal is over and the police have left, your next step is to call in a security expert. Quickly Locksmith offer a range of services including security audits and advanced systems that can alert you to any threats and protect you should they happen. 

Don’t hesitate and call us right away. We’re Miami’s leading security and locksmith service, trusted by residential customers and large business owners alike!

Best Locations For Surveillance Cameras

Best Locations For Surveillance Cameras & Sensors

Out locksmith technician looking for the best locations for surveillance cameras & sensors for Miami residential home

Security cameras and sensors are finding their way into more and more homes and businesses. We believe that both are worthwhile investments as although they do not offer any physical stopping power, they allow remote monitoring, strong deterrents and are extremely useful for insurance purposes too.

Hiding in plain sight

Visible security cameras are a good thing. Don’t hide them away in the hope of catching someone in the act – have them on display for thieves to see. Of course, anyone persistent enough to not be scared off will either try to damage the camera or plan a route around your property to stay away from it. In both cases its presence alone has already slowed them down and very possibly already recorded them!

Multiple camera systems

Utilizing multiple cameras is an excellent way of levelling up your overall security. Security experts will often suggest placing one or two in easily visible locations and others more hidden away. If a burglar does manage to slip past the visible cameras there’s a good possibility you’ll have their face clearly visible on another camera!

Prime locations to consider

  • Main entrances such as front gates and doors. These are usually visible but send a powerful message that the property is well maintained.
  • Other entrances to your property such as side gates and rear doors. Again, these might be spotted by a criminal but offer an additional layer of protection.
  • Important rooms and locations. Outside areas such as pools can’t be locked away but they can be monitored remotely.
  • Garage or basement doors. These are places you might not enter or check every day so it’s a good idea to have them visible when necessary.

Final tips

Any reputable locksmith in Miami will tell you the locations and conditions in which cameras are placed will affect their overall efficacy. It’s not just about fully monitoring every angle of your property; it is also important to consider weather conditions and potential damage or malfunction to the cameras.

Advanced systems such as these are always best installed and maintained by an expert. Quickly Locksmith in Miami are available to offer free quotations covering all aspects of security, including advanced camera systems. We are available 24/7 and can often attend within 15 minutes!

What is a Security Audit ?

Quickly Locksmith Miami Team Members

What is a security audit?

Ask any software developer or web programmer what their number one check is before launching a new app or website and they’ll probably tell you the same thing – security. In fact, due to such high risks, high-tech companies regularly spend millions of dollars on trained professionals that try to ‘hack’ their product to expose weak spots. That’s exactly what a security audit can do for your property! One of experienced professionals will look at every aspect of your home or commercial property and outline its areas of weakness.

What will it check?

  • Locks, doors, windows and other entrances
  • Garages and basements
  • The efficiency of your security cameras and alarms
  • Border fences, roofs and other potential security risks such as high trees that could give easy access.

In short, everything is covered to ensure you know everything about your property.

Use a trained expert

Locksmiths and security experts are trained and experienced enough to find any risks and weak spots as they have often spent lots of time responding to or dealing with burglaries. That experience allows them to recognise what is important and what needs attention.

At Quickly Locksmith, the whole team are trained professionals that are well-qualified to spot any area of weakness. We can then offer advice on how to improve the problem and suggest products that can be used. Our years-long experience in covering all aspects of residential and commercial property-based security places us well to offer top notch service.

Peace of mind!

After carrying out a security audit, the most commonly head response from our customers is “I had no idea…” That’s nobody’s fault – you have your business and we have ours! Security is our area of expertise and we pride ourselves on being the best our the business.

Security Issues To Keep In Mind When Moving a House

Security Issues To Keep In Mind When Moving Into a New House

Unlocking a locked door & Providing Residential Locksmith Services in Miami FL

Moving into a new house is stressful and comes with many dilemmas. Should I bring old furniture with me? Do I need to renovate? Unfortunately, one aspect that is often overlooked is security. In the midst of happiness and stress that is finding your new home, you forget that though it is now your home, it used to be someone else’s! Chances are the locks haven’t been changed and someone else could still have access to your property!

Don’t take a chance

Whether you know the previous owners or not, it doesn’t matter. Perhaps they are trustworthy folk. However, it’s also possible that they innocently made mistakes with security that could have a knock-on effect to you. Maybe they had people working in the house that were a bit unscrupulous and kept a key? Or maybe the previous owners left a spare key with their shady cousin? It might all sound like far-fetched off chances, but why take a chance?

At Quickly Locksmith, we offer a range of services, 24/7 to fit your every need. We even guarantee to arrive within 15-minutes for emergencies!

Is The Traditional Lock System Still Relevant Today

Is The Traditional Lock System Still Relevant Today

New steel three bolt door lock after installation made by our Quickly locksmiths technicians

Unless you live in a commune or spend your days constantly watching your doors, you’ll probably want a strong lock to limit access to your property. Whether its an office space, store, commercial property or your home, the traditional lock system remains relevant and widely used.

Los costs for good security

When talking about traditional locks, we usually mean deadbolt, knob and mortise locks. Whilst the principle behind them may be decades old, they are still very much useful and widely used around the world. As improvements have been made over the years to the internals of these locks, most locksmiths will agree that a well installed and maintained lock from these three categories provides cost effective security.

Downsides

Even though improvements have been made to these traditional systems, technology marches on and new types of locks have replaced them at the pinnacle. Smart locks offer extra security and far increased flexibility and many newly built properties feature them as standard. No more lost keys or replacing the lock when you move to a new house, smart locks feature clever pin codes, key fobs or biometric scans, much like your phone. What’s more, they offer many monitoring features that are just not possible with traditional locks.

Assessing my needs

While smart locks may be the future, that doesn’t mean they’re essential in all properties. Assessing your needs is important to avoid impulse buying unnecessary gadgets and a professional locksmith can help you decide exactly where that balance between affordability and security lies.

Quickly Locksmith only employ certified locksmiths who are experienced in their field. We pride ourselves on offering trustworthy and reasonable advice and back it up with our impeccable reputation as the leading locksmith in Miami.

Knowing you and your family are safe in your own home is something very important to us all. You also want to make sure your belongings are safe and sound and to do this your locks, doors and security need to be up to scratch.

One stop shop

If your door is damaged, it is not optimally secure and is an invitation for thieves. It can also affect the efficacy of the other components it works with and can cause damage to the locks if left over time.

When looking for a door repair service, finding a professional with experience is essential. In many cases, our experienced locksmiths are able to repair damaged doors so that they are once again secure. Where this isn’t possible, replacements can usually be fitted on the spot and for those special installations, reinforcements are available. We can also offer advice where we think it’s due that could help improve the overall security of your door. For example, a high-tech smart lock on a flimsy door is almost useless so it’s important to make sure everything is matched up and working well.

Why you must use only licensed & insured locksmiths

Satisfied Costumer After Getting His Car Keys Replaced By Our Automobile locksmith services technician In Miami FL - Quickly Locksmith Miami

When you’ve locked yourself out of your home, office or car and you’re in a hurry, there’s always a temptation to just settle for the quickest option. It’s a hectic moment and when you just need to get on with your day, you’d be forgiven for overlooking all the details in that moment of stress. In the long run, however, it can end up being a costly mistake to just take the quickest option if they’re not also certified and insured. Here’s why…

The difference between licensed and unlicensed locksmiths

Licensed locksmiths belong to registered companies that are obliged to adhere to rules and regulations set out by the federal government. If they deviate from the rules and are fount to be in breach, they can lose their certification and with it, their reputation. This means that a licensed locksmith will always work with integrity, if for nothing else other than their own sake.

An unlicensed locksmith on the other hand is not bound by the same restrictions. They have no important certification to maintain and while they are not necessarily untrustworthy, there are fewer immediate repercussions for them if they turn out to be rogue.

What can go wrong?

Actually, quite a lot!

Fixing a lock may seem like a simple task, but it requires experience and skill and it’s not what you’d think. Qualified locksmiths spend a long time honing their skill and as technology becomes every more secure, its complexity continues to increase. Experts keep track of new technology, constantly improving their knowledge. Without that knowledge, damage can be caused to your locks, doors or other property quite easily and when it does, the costs can spiral. Unfortunately, unlicensed usually also means uninsured and you could easily be left with a big repair bill and no easy recourse to compensation.

Our advice? Just save yourself the hassle and always insist on a qualified, certified and insured locksmith like those at Quickly Locksmith. The peace of mind alone has got to be worth it and you’d be surprised at just how affordable our services actually are!
