Moving home is a stressful task that seems to have an endless list of jobs that need to be done before you can sit and enjoy your new home, but by employing the services of a locksmith, you will be able to cross a few jobs off your list and know that your new home is secure.
Now that the housing market has reopened, and interest in moving home is increasing, we wanted to look at three important jobs for a locksmith in your home.
1. Changing or Rekeying the Locks
Unless your new home is a brand new build, it is unlikely that you are the only holder of the keys to your home. Previous tenants may have had copies made for friends and family, dog walkers, cleaners, etc.
For peace of mind, and your family’s protection, get the locks changed, or have them rekeyed so you are sure that only you have a working set of keys to your home.
2. Providing a Security Consultation
It’s a good idea to ask a locksmith to provide a security audit of your new home, to check that all the doors and windows are secure, and to pinpoint any areas for additional security.
They will provide you with a report on what they have discovered, as well as recommend upgrades and improvements.
3. Upgrading to Smart Lock Technology
Instead of rekeying your locks or swapping them out for entirely new keys, you may want to consider investing in smart locks for your new home. If so, locksmiths will be able to advise you on the best products and which ones you will work best for you.
Smart locks are the way of the future, and they can provide much more peace of mind and convenience than traditional locking systems.
