Locks and Hardware Services in Massachusetts and New Hampshire
Mechanical and electric locks protect your home or business by restricting access through your front door or other private areas. While people have used locks and keys for centuries to protect valuables, mechanical security hardware has improved over the years. Many people still use mechanical systems with great success for their security. Digital security systems can be more convenient and accessible. They’re often most effective when coupled with mechanical hardware to increase security.
The professionals at Prestige Security Solutions help with mechanical locks and electronic lock services, such as smart locks. We will install and maintain these systems around your home or business. Go about your daily work and sleep comfortably at night with expert security solutions from our team.
Benefits of Locks and Hardware for Your Home or Business
Mechanical locks have many benefits, especially for your home or business. The main benefit is that mechanical locks are tried and true — they are simple to use and don’t require remembering any PINs or codes. A simple key is all that’s needed. For added security, you can design the lock so multiple keys simultaneously can unlock it. This design is especially useful in commercial settings where there’s a higher potential for theft.
A good mechanical lock offers a high level of security at lower prices than elaborate security systems with multiple cameras. They are designed for heavy wear and tear, so they are likely to last many years.
For even more security, a common practice is to combine mechanical locks with electronic security systems. These systems include electronic locks with keypad, keycard or smart entry options like smartphone access. They add convenience and flexibility to your security system while giving an extra layer of protection beyond your existing mechanical lock.
Types of Locks Prestige Security Solutions Assists With
There are dozens of types of locks around, each offering different functionality based on your needs.
When it comes to residential or commercial lock and key services, the following types of locks are the most effective.
Master Key Systems
Probably one of the most popular types of security lock hardware is the master key system. These consist of multiple locks, all of which require a unique key to open. However, there is a single master key that can unlock every lock within the system.
Master key systems are great for businesses with multiple levels of security and limited access for certain staff. Each person gets the keys necessary to access what they need. A single master key adds convenience in case of emergency. This system is effective for more than just its security benefits. With a master key system, you can carry just one key, saving you space and limiting the chances of loss.
You can even customize the system so it works best for you. That means deciding which doors the master key can and cannot unlock and whether you need more than one master key.
The master key system is also one of the best residential lock services, including private homes. If there are multiple doors in your home, including the front, back and any side doors, a master key system can reduce three entryway keys into one master key, so you don’t need to worry about keeping track of multiple keys while out and about.
Additionally, if you ever decide to sell your home and realize you’ve lost the key to the basement or back door, the new owners can access those entryways with the master key.
Leversets are great for when a keyed lock is unnecessary but some level of security still is. These locks are found in more places than the average consumer likely realizes because they’re so efficient and useful.
Public or private bathrooms, conference rooms, bedrooms and offices are just some of the residential and commercial locations these locks work well. Combine leversets with numbered keypads to provide an added level of security — all without the need to keep track of dozens of keys.
Sometimes, it’s far more cost effective for a business to use keypad locks rather than mechanical ones. For one thing, it reduces the number of physical keys you need to make and distribute — and keep track of. Instead, a four- or five-digit PIN is all you need. A PIN is harder to crack, with many combinations of numbers available. You can easily change the PIN whenever you want, which reduces the risk of any former employees using their code to burglarize your business.
These locks use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to unlock doors, allowing you to leave the key behind and saving you from memorizing a PIN. Often, these systems enable you to control the lock remotely using a smartphone app. The app allows you to monitor when the deadbolt lock or other locks are open and closed, giving added security. We offer smart lock security services with a range of options.
Ideal for commercial properties, crash bars come with many benefits both in security and safety. Alarm-activated crash bars allow for smooth exit in an emergency, performing the double duty of creating a barrier-free exit while sounding an alarm. Similarly, you can design them to be activated to unlock or lock at the sound of an alarm to prevent unwanted persons from entering.
Crash bars improve safety for everyone in your commercial building, ensuring an accessible way to get masses of people out of a building.
