What to Expect from Your Local Lock Shop

Quickly Locksmith Miami Local Locksmith Shop In Downtown Miami FL

A locksmith’s skill and craft can sometimes be overlooked and you’d be forgiven for thinking a low-price option for a quick job is OK. A quick google search for ‘locksmith near me’ or ‘local locksmith in Miami’ will generate a long list of ‘professionals’, but who should you chose? Well money isn’t everything and it’s important to consider the overall value. Quickly Locksmiths offer professional services for residential and commercial properties as well as automobiles.

For those of you outside of Florida though, we’ll forgive you for not calling us. Here’s a list of our top tips on what to look for in a more local locksmith.

Certification, certification, certification!

When your locksmith is certified, it gives you a lot of peace of mind and allows you to rest assured that whatever the job is, it will be carried out to the best standard. In order to gain certification, a locksmith goes through rigorous training. Their skill is honed over a period of time, too; this is not a month gig. Finally, all work carried out by a certified locksmith will be insured – both to the products installed and to your property. In the unlikely event that issues arise later on, this certification is important for any potential insurance claim!

Looking for a local locksmith:

At Quickly Locksmiths in Miami, we have a store that you can visit and speak to our team of experts. Some locksmiths may not operate out of a store and while this doesn’t necessarily equal a problem, there are definitely benefits to being able to visit a physical location. A store is a point of contact for any products or spares you might need in the future and good staff will always be happy to offer advice. Some locksmiths found online that don’t operate from a store may well be certified and professional, but many aren’t and may well be here today and gone tomorrow. Our advice? Look for a store!

Availability is key:

When you need a locksmith, chances are you need them soon. When you’re locked out and/or its an emergency, having to wait for upwards of 30 minutes can seem like an age. At Miami’s leading locksmith, Quality Locksmiths offer an impressive 15-minute response time – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Keep these tips in mind when searching for a locksmith so you don’t end up calling someone unreliable.

Tips to Improve Your Home Security When You Are Short on Money

Tips to Improve Your Home Security When You Are Short on Money

Changing old locks to brand new high security locks in a residence in Miami FL

Smart gates, smart locks and 360 surround security cameras all represent the pinnacle of current technology for securing your home, but the annual costs all add up and not everyone is in the financial position to go down this route. At Quickly Locksmith here in Miami, we are available to help if a smart security system is what you desire, but even if it isn’t and your budget is slightly more modest, there are a range of other solutions to choose from. Here are some of our suggestions on how to improve your home’s security, even with a tight budget.

Make sure the door and lock match well:

Smart locks and high-end security systems definitely have their place, but they’re just not necessary for many installations. Many consumers are in the market for a good quality, solid lock to secure their front and rear doors and we’d agree with this idea. Ensuring you chose a good quality lock is important as the leading brands only require minimal ongoing maintenance. Parts are usually available cheaply and guides can be found online for the DIY-enthusiasts among-st you.

What’s important to watch out for is that the materials match each other in their strength. For example, a strong lock used with a weak door can lead to problems such as the cylinder cracking the frame from the inside which can be a costly repair. A qualified locksmith can recommend a good combination of lock and door to match any budget.

Other tricks:

At Quickly Locksmith we also offer commercial locksmith services in Miami and one thing that we often suggest to small business and residential customers alike is to place a small camera in plain sight. It doesn’t even really have to be wired in and working as its presence along can offer a strong deterrent to would-be thieves.

As the leading commercial locksmith service in Miami, we’ve also learned that sometimes an alarm is a good investment. Again, it doesn’t even need to be connected to an ongoing service and the sound alone can be enough to send an unwitting burglar on their way.

Every year, the security and lock market becomes more sophisticated and offers wider selections of products to improve security in your home or business. Despite this, many locksmiths still attend the sites of burgled houses and commercial properties and part of the reason lies in the fact that consumers aren’t aware of exactly what is out there that could potentially improve their security. Here are Quickly Locksmiths’ tips for improving your property’s security for the new year and the new decade.

Get to know your property:

Quickly Locksmiths offer services for both private clientele as well as commercial real estate and our biggest tip of them all is: GET TO KNOW YOUR PROPERTY! Know every nook and cranny of your property. Where are the cameras? Safes? Do you have an exact and up-to-date list of daily entrances? All reputable locksmith services can offer a security audit that will help you to reveal your property’s security risks and allow you to correct them – meaning you will be in a better position to decide on ongoing maintenance or possible necessary upgrades.

Lost Your Keys? Quick Tips for Opening Any Locked Door

After you’re back inside, and you feel like you’ve gained your sense of control again, then you can resolve all other issues concerning your lost keys. But first thing is first – how to open a locked door when you have no idea where your keys are… as the leading locksmith company in Miami we’re here to teach you how to break in through your own doors, before looking for a locksmith near me to fix the rest of the problem right?

Who might have a spare key?

Think and try to remember, maybe a friend or your landlord? Perhaps you’ve left a spare key with a neighbor? If you made a spare key this last year – one of the people in your close circuit might be all the help you need. Miami locksmiths could make a spare key on the spot without using the original – so if you have no one available you just might need to call a locksmith company for the rescue!

Think of alternative entry points to your home:

In most cases, we always have this one window or back door we simply forget to lock… think and look for alternative ways to enter your property, so you could open your front door from the inside. It could be as simple as your living room window, a small hop and land on a couch, or right on top of your toilet… any way you can think of would come in handy.

Breaking into your own home:

Damaging your lock won’t serve you well as it might open the door and get you back inside but it will also require a professional Miami locksmith to fix. However, if you have some hardware available you could work around the windows locks / back door locks who are usually last secure.

How Fire Door Locks Make Emergency Exits More Secure

David Davidof - Certified Locksmith Installer in Miami FL

Most big buildings and apartment blocks have a fire door with a fire door lock and all commercial locksmiths will advocate their necessity for one main reason: their efficacy and stamina. Fire doors are highly resilient and provide safety when it is most needed.

Preventing and withholding fire and explosives:

Safety measures are a crucial aspect of any commercial real-estate plan and for good reason. Its essential to plan for the worst, even if we expect and hope for the best. A fire door and fire door lock guarantee a safe location in the event of a fire for a number of reasons. Firstly, they offer compartmentalization between different rooms, guaranteeing that fire will not penetrate them for at least one hour, no matter the ferocity of the blaze. Secondly, during the planning stages, emergency exits are placed and safety protocols are agreed upon that allow for quick evacuation in the event of an emergency such as a fire.

Why would you want to lock a fire door?

We should clarify here that the lock on a fire door is not used to lock in or out. They are left unlocked at all times except for emergency situations and will lock automatically in order to prevent fire doors from losing their strength. At Quickly Locksmith we can help any beginner developer to understand this vital detail and offer suggestions on how it can be utilized safely.
