    Best home security practices

    July 12, 2021

    Smart doorbells and security cameras are becoming increasingly popular when it comes to home security. Smart doorbells are a simple way of monitoring and recording movements on your doorstep and outside your property. Much more useful than a regular doorbell, with their motion sensors, cameras and remote viewing, they can often interface with other smart home products. A very handy way to keep an eye on things when you are away and a much cheaper alternative than installing security cameras.

    FAQs

    What is a Locksmith?

    A locksmith is someone who works with locks on doors, windows, safes, cars, etc. Locksmiths install, repair, and adjust locks in everything from cars to office buildings, and they also offer services to people who are locked out or individuals who want to consult with someone about their security systems. This profession is quite ancient; as long as there have been locks and keys to fit them, there have been people who specialize in working with them.

    Can a locksmith open a deadbolt?

    A common misconception with deadbolt locks is that they're nearly impossible to open once locked. This simply isn't true. With the right tools and the proper training, a locksmith can have your door opened in no time. Give us a call to find out more.

    How to be safe from burglary?

    Burglars will not normally spend more than 60 seconds trying to break into your home so a good strong lock can make a massive difference to how difficult your home would be to break into. A solid entry door is always a great addition for added security and it will also help with keeping in heat and keeping draughts out.

    How quickly can you get out to me?

    The type of job can affect the response time of a Locksmith due its urgency. However, we have an emergency response time of 30-60 minutes, where possible, and for non-emergency cases will always try to get out to you within 1-2 hours.

    Do you have a call out charge?

    At Locksmith’s of London, we don’t have a call out charge, we only charge for Labour (the time on site) plus parts and VAT.

    How many keys will come with a replacement lock?

    Each lock will differ with the number of keys that it comes with, but you should expect to get 2-3 new keys with the installation of a new door lock by us.

    Does the work come with a guarantee?

    All work carried out by Locksmith’s of London come with a year’s guarantee, some products will also come with a manufacturer’s warranty.

    What is BS3621 British Standard?

    BS3621 is a British Standard where locks are tested against common burglar techniques such as drilling and picking. The following locks can be upgraded to meet this standard: Mortice Locks, Night Latches (Yale Locks) and Rim Cylinder locks. If you live in a block of flats or apartment the standard BS8621 is recommended which allows anyone to exit in an emergency without needing a key.

    • Whilst throwing a party someone accidentally locked us out of my bedroom. Called these guys out at 4am to let us in so we could go to bed. They were here in 45 minutes and the job was done in 5. Glad we didn’t have to sleep on the sofa!
