Seattle Locksmith Best Practices: When Re-Keying is Required

According to the Seattle Police Department, the total number of burglaries reported in 2013 rose 12% from the previous year and robberies rose 11% from 2012. With the increasing criminal activity citywide, security for your home and commercial buildings has never been as important as it is right now.

Hawk Locksmith is dedicated to protecting your building from break-ins, invasions, and unauthorized personnel access. Through our experience in the residential, automotive, and commercial locksmith industries, we can offer guidance as to when re-keying in required.

Lost/Stolen Keys

The feeling of insecurity that comes with a lost or stolen key can be even worse than losing the key itself. For safety, it’s not always a good idea to simply replace lost or stolen keys. Though the chances of the key holder finding and getting access to that specific lock are pretty slim, you’ll sleep better knowing there’s zero chance of that happening with new locks or re-keying.

New Homes/Apartments

If you’ve just moved into a new place and want to ensure the old tenants don’t have access to your personal belongings, getting a re-key or lock replacement is the only way to make sure they don’t have access in the future. We can help you re-key your existing locks or upgrade them to a higher-quality lock system.

Worn or Broken Locks

That fiddly lock isn’t “just like that.” It’s wearing down and the pins aren’t catching like they should. A weak lock is a target to burglars and won’t protect against forced entry as effectively as it should. Rekeying the lock or replacing it with a better quality one is the safe way to go.

Previous Forced Entry

If you’ve recently had a break-in or attempted break-in, it might be a good time to beef up your security and add a more durable security lock. At Hawk Locksmith, we can offer electronic locks, keypad locks, biometric and keyless entry systems to fit all budgets and security needs.

To discuss the security in your home, car, or business, contact Hawk Locksmith for a consultation or to inquire about our replacement and rekeying products and services.

Tips for Preventing Burglary

The introduction of the deadbolt in the 1960s dramatically reduced the number of residential burglaries. Today, almost 25 percent of homes have security systems and technological advances like security glass and advanced lock technology have further dissuaded potential burglaries. However, according to the FBI 2010 crime statistics, a burglary occurs in the United States every 14.6 seconds.

At Hawk Locksmith, we have the tools and expertise to assess your security needs and provide a high-tech solution that will help prevent attacks against your home. In addition to our advanced locks, our security experts can recommend a security strategy that best suits your location. Our experience gives us unique insight into modern security in the Seattle area and we have some tips for preventing burglary:

Secure Sliding Windows and Doors

Older sliding doors or windows can be popped right off their frames, even if they’re locked. Adding an extra layer of security with a wooden dowel, metal bar, or other pole will help keep your door secure even if the lock is picked. Additionally, with sliding windows you can use a pole if they slide sideways or placing a nail or two above the window if they slide up to prevent them from being moved more than a few inches. Check your window air conditioning units, too!

Lose the Spare Key

Everyone hides their spare key under the mat or flower pot, so obviously burglars will look for that more often than not. Instead, leave the spare key with a friend or neighbor that lives nearby or use a combination lockbox that contains a spare key.

Prepare before Extended Absences

If you’re going on vacation or leaving your home for extended periods of time, make sure your home is adequately prepared for your leave. Notify the post office to hold your mail (same with the newspaper) so that it doesn’t all pile up, consider installing auto-on/off exterior and interior lights so that your home isn’t dark the whole time, and have your lawn cut or sidewalks shoveled. It all helps create the illusion that someone is monitoring the property.

Consult with an Expert

Our experience can guide your security decisions and identify potential targets for thieves – many you probably wouldn’t consider. Our services include door locks, installations, repairs, replacements, re-keying, and upgrades for any kind of lock. We are fully licensed, bonded, and insured and have extensive knowledge of home, auto, and commercial security. Contact us today to schedule a security consultation or to discuss your security needs!

Seattle Commercial Locksmith: Understanding Trilogy Locks

Hawk Locksmiths is the best choice for your Seattle commercial locksmith needs. They serve all Seattle areas, north, west, central, east, and south. They can help you understand which Trilogy locks (high-security and electronic locks) are best suited for your residential, commercial, and emergency locksmith needs.

 

We recommend Trilogy lock systems. It’s the most trusted lock name in retail, hospitals, schools and airports around the world.

 

All Trilogy locks come standard with dependable wireless access control, support for thousands for PIN codes, access cards, and fobs, multi-level and one-time use codes, long-life batteries, key override, non-handed cylindrical options, and finish choices.

 

When you consider your security needs, it helps to understand the differences between several Trilogy locks.

 

With some Trilogy systems, you can view and set user audit trails, user access schedules and quickly alter electronic keys within the system. Adding or revoking user access is streamlined through the system’s management.

 

All Trilogys feature free Windows-based software for key, ID card, and PIN programming and management. You can also program manually from the keypad itself.

 

There are several accessories and add-ons available for your Trilogy system. Door strikes, mounting bars, cylinder locks, pulls, battery eliminators, door holders, and armored door loops.
