At Curley’s Key Shop, we offer a wide range of services to offer those who would like to make their home more secure. Read on for some ideas to get you started, and stop by anytime to talk with our friendly, professional staff about how to make your particular home more secure.
Updating locks is one of the most basic, though often most overlooked, ways of improving the safety of your home and preventing unwanted intruders from gaining access. Anytime you move into a new home, changing the locks should be one of your absolute top priorities. There are probably various people who knew the previous owners who had keys, such as construction contractors, babysitters, pet-sitters, family members, and neighbors. While it’s good to expect that those people always have good intentions, it’s much wiser to just get the locks changed.
Every 5 Years
Also, as a general rule, every 5 years or so, it’s a great idea to get your locks changed. Perhaps you gave the cat-sitter a key and she forgot to return it to you, or perhaps an old boyfriend had one. For optimum security, it’s essential to only allow access to certain, extra-trustworthy people. We’re fallible human beings, though, and we often forget who we gave keys to, so just in case, get your locks changed every few years.
A Safe Could Save Your Bacon
Losing a passport, marriage license, birth certificate, heirloom necklace, or any valuable item can feel like a complete crisis. Whether the item has sentimental value, like a piece of jewelry, or practical value, like a birth certificate—it’s incredibly important to keep essential documents in a clean, safe place. A safe is the best place for these documents because only you will be able to gain access to it, and you’ll always know exactly where to find your needed items. At Curley’s Key Shop we have a wide range of safes for you to choose from, depending on your needs and preferences. We have portable safes, free-standing chests, wall safes, and even floor safes. If you’d like, your safe can have a spy-proof dial, a time clock, or even a fingerprint lock. We also have fire-resistant safes and extra-thief resistant safes available. We can take care of all the details involved with installing, maintaining, and if needed, repairing your safe, so you won’t have to worry about any of that.
A CCTV System Discourages Suspicious Activity
Whenever someone is thinking about breaking into or vandalizing a home and he or she sees a security camera, they instinctively back away. A CCTV system is a video system that includes monitors, wireless transmitters, receivers, and cables that enhances the security of your home 24/7. With the video monitors, you can see what’s happening on and around your property at all times, and if a crime does occur, recordings are accepted forms of evidence in investigations and court proceedings. But it’s very likely that just having a camera on your property will discourage any suspicious activity, preventing crimes from occurring and giving you increased ease.
