How to Keep You and Your Family Safe

Many people think  "It can't happen to me" or "what's going to  happen, will happen".


Well here are some facts.

We may not have control over a fire in the home, an auto accident, or natural disasters that can take place at any time. By taking proactive measures we do have control over our own and our family's  safety.  This can reduce or possibly even eliminate the likelihood of being a statistic. Here are just a few things that can make all the difference.

~ RESIDENTIAL Security  Tips

      • Use quality locks on all entrances.
      • Don't hide keys outside, or leave in vehicle.
      • Keep doors locked even when you or family are at home.
      • Install locks on your fuse boxes or power panel and other external power sources.
      • If you have bars on your windows, review fire safety and escape routes with your family.
      • If you have security alarms, check and use them.
      • Vary daily routines and avoid predictable behavior patterns.
      • Know where your family members are at all times.
      • Keep firearms up and away from children.  We recommend using a biometric gun box.
      • Dogs should be allowed to bark when strangers come to the door.  Regardless of how "friendly" Spot actually is, let strangers believe he is aggressive.  This can be a very valuable security asset and deterent.

 

~    Security Tips for your CHILDREN

      • Teach your children to never answer the door to strangers.
      • Children should know local emergency phone numbers or how to dial 911, and emergency exits out of the home.
      • Children, even young ones, should know their name, address, and phone number.
      • Caution teenagers about "blind dates" or meeting someone they do not know or someone they met on the Internet.
      • Teach your children to never give out personal information, such as home address, absence of adults, etc. over the phone or Internet.
      • Teach children to say no to strangers or even people they know if they are uncomfortable with the situation.

~When Moving into a New Home

#1.  Change locks  (most important)
Track Homes have many contractors and employees working on multiple houses at one time.  A builder will usually have a "master" or "construction master" key he provides the contractors that fits all of his units.  The keys he gives to a new home owner are different from the master keys and other units in the track but the segments for the master key (called master pins or wafers) remain in the lock.

This allows other key combinations to fit your new locks due to additional master wafers in the pin stack plus reducing security against lock picking and key and lock bumping .

In most cases, we can remove these master wafers to restore normal security.  Additionally we can insert bump and pick resistant spool pins (also called mushroom pins) to increase security in the key portion of the lock beyond manufacturers specs in most cases.  Some newer locks have the bump resistant pins.

If no master key was used, not all the keys to your home may have been accounted for or duplicates may have been made.

Some banks and lenders have Real Estate agents master key all the units they are listing or only rekey one door to get in.  You may not get a key to the rest of your house and need it rekeyed to a new key.


#2 Repair or Replace 
 Any lock that is aged, worn out and failing.  R
eplacing a bent, weak or worn key before it breaks might be inconvenient, but it's better than receiving a costly bill later.


We provide security assessments with all services upon request.
