Memphis LOCK INSTALLATIONS AND UPGRADES
Call upon our nationally renowned locksmiths when you need new locks installed for your home or business!
Most people want to ensure that their homes and businesses are properly secured, but they don't look at the most obvious security issue when it comes to said locations: are the locks on the home or business out of date? Are they old, or broken? Most importantly, who has the keys? Many older locks have keys that have been copied dozens of times, thus creating a security risk. Making sure that you have the best security possible means it's time to start exploring new locks and security systems for your home or business. With a new and professionally installed security system, you can feel safe in your home as well as confident that your business interests are secure. Security is often one of the most overlooked aspects of daily life, so is that really the smartest way to protect your home or business? Instead, take a moment to consider a few things.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CHANGE THE LOCKS?
Whether you are a home or business owner, unless you built your property from the ground up, chances are high that there was a previous owner. Most people simply hand over the keys to the next tenant or owner, and the keys never get changed. In such a case, there is a strong possibility that the keys were copied. There's a possibility that in fact there could be dozens, if not hundreds of keys milling about that could open the doors to your home or business. It's very possible no one actually knows how many copies of a set of keys there are. And that's only one of the many situations where one should consider installing a new set of locks for their home or business. Others examples include:
- If your vehicle was broken into and a copy of the keys were taken
- Your keys are lost or stolen
- After a break-in that damages your lock
- When your previous employee 'forgets' to return the office keys
- When you have to relocate to a new office
- A roommate moved out but retained possession of the keys
- When you need to upgrade your security system
- As part of your home or office renovations
- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged
- Divorce, death, or a new tenant
- Moving to a new home
When it's time to install new locks for your home or for your office for any reason (or your vehicle, for that matter) our expert locksmiths are here to help for your next lock install.
LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES
Masters of Both Business and Residential Security
The first step to updating your locks is to call our offices so that we can do an initial security inspection. We take into account variables such as style, possible weak points in security, and finally, the individual budget for the work. Although we work so competitively that our prices are the lowest that you can find anywhere in the country, we also have a number of different options for people and businesses who don't have the latest advances in security planned out in their budget. Often a good solid deadbolt and quality modern alarm system will do the job just fine.
While many people will see security as simply heading down to the hardware store and buying a deadbolt on sale, this is never a good idea. In the first place, you have to know how to install a lock properly. In the second, you have to know which lock will fit which door. And if you don't install the lock properly it may not function as it's supposed to, thus providing diminished protection for the place it was installed. Because we have the experience and the know-how, our professional locksmiths can make sure your home or business is secure instead of hastily cobbled 'do it yourself' solutions.

WHAT TYPE OF LOCKS DO WE SERVICE?
Everyone knows the good old fashioned deadbolt. The standard for homes and businesses for over 100 years, the deadbolt works attached to both the door and the wall. On one side, a knob releases the lock; on the other, a key can be used to take the place of the knob. While newer technologies may offer more security, for most homes and many businesses, the traditional deadbolt lock is more than enough to ward off any potential wrongdoers. we service and install a wide variety of deadbolt locks, especially the following:
- Master Lock

Similar in appearance to the deadbolt, the Mortise Deadlocks adds another layer of practical security. To open a Mortise Deadlock, you need a key for either side of the door. These locks are particularly useful when dealing with rooms in which no one except the keyholder should have access. Instead of a knob, there is another keyhole, guaranteeing that no one on either side can grant access they don't have. This is especially useful for rooms in which security must be carefully maintained internally as well as externally (unlike a regular house lock, for example-- you would need a lock to get in, but once inside probably don't want extra security in the kitchen. We use the best Mortise Deadlock systems in the industry, including:
MODERN LOCKS: THE NEXT LEVEL WHEN IT COMES TO SECURITY
While most homes and businesses can do fine with the average electronic security system and a combination of the locks above, the technology for modern locks is light years ahead of older, physical key systems. Depending on the level of security your home or business needs, some modern lock systems might be exactly what you are looking for.
Keycard Systems: a keycard system is based around electronic and magnetic locks that can be accessed through the tap of a card, as opposed to the use of a physical key. Not only can they be programmed to have different access levels, they can also be easily programmed for new users, as well as changed in the case users need to be removed from the system. Along with older technology, keycard systems can add whole new levels to security and access that are simply unparalleled.
Keypad Systems: keypad systems are relatively similar to keycards in that they are programmable on multiple levels, but use codes to open doors that are entered on pinpads instead of a key card system. Keypad systems are popular in conjunction with keycard systems because even if a potential troublemaker has one, he will probably have trouble gaining both.
Fingerprint and Retina Scans
Fingerprint and Retina Scan Systems: The ultimate in total security, these systems are designed to ensure that no one gets in without authenticating their very existence. These are high-enough security devices to be used with high-level government and private-sector offices.
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems: Electronic lock systems can often be used with WiFi to not only give the owner an accurate picture of who is where in a house or business but can also alert owners if there is a security breach. Police can usually be called remotely to the scene and then our emergency locksmith service can survey the breach and repair it.
As technology continues to drop in price, the cost of these amazing systems continues to drop and are now reaching cost parity with traditional lock systems.
