Raising home security awareness
Melbourne locksmiths security awareness keyring with keysAsk any Melbourne locksmiths provider and you’ll find that we all agree that home security here in the UK is something that we need to raise awareness about.
We see that there are many homes that lack proper protection, and often it’s not due to the fact that making sure that the security is up to date is too expensive.
But simply due to the fact that people are unaware of the risks and the often simple methods in which they can battle and lower these risks.
As a first step, we recommend that anyone get in touch with a Melbourne locksmiths service provider and have a security survey performed by a trained professional with the eyes to identify correctly the existing threats at the property in question.

Beware of the dog!
Melbourne locksmiths beware of the dog signOne of the most efficient methods of keeping your home secure which we as a Melbourne locksmiths security provider agrees with, is that of keeping a security guard.
Of course we are speaking here, of the creature also known as man’s best friend.
With a hyper sensitive sense of smell a dog makes the perfect intruder alarm, and intruder protection.
However, of course keeping a good level of security at home is not enough reason to keep a dog.
Even for a Melbourne locksmiths security expert keeping a dog just for the purpose of guarding your home is not a good enough reason.
After all, a dog is a creature which requires much love, care and also comes with a great responsibility which is placed on the owner.
A dog on the premises is a very strong deterring factor for many burglars, and would most likely turn the attention away from your home as a target.
But as mentioned, not everyone would like to get a dog, this is why we as a Melbourne locksmiths security provider instead recommends that you pretend you have a companion and guard at home.
Putting up signs warning for the dog, and perhaps purchase a realistic sounding barking dog alarm which is triggered by motion sensors outside the door is a great idea.
This way, you will be able to avoid any opportunistic thieves who look may have seen your property as a potential target if it wasn’t for the risk of the home having a private security guard and a beware of the dog sign in the window.
To get in touch with a Melbourne locksmiths security provider for more tips and advice on your home security, please feel free to give us a ring, our team are happy to help and share information as well as answer your questions with regards to how you can keep your home safe from potential thieves and burglars.
Key-less House Key pros and cons from Melbourne locksmiths
Melbourne locksmiths key-less homeWith new technology comes also what seems more and more like a sci-fi home.
Something that many are considering these days is that of installing a locking system at home which does not feature a key.
Melbourne locksmiths understands that it can be very annoying and highly frustrating to look for your keys in your purse or the multitude of pockets, which seem to multiply as the weather gets colder and the layers to keep warm becomes higher in numbers.
Just as the Melbourne locksmiths team can see the reverse scenario just as stressful.
Finding yourself at home in a rush and in search of your keys seemingly without much luck can be unnerving and as these type of scenarios often seem to crop up at the worst possible times it amplifies the stress of the situation.
Using a key-less system at home is something that would extinguish these type of scenarios, however even if it can be of great benefit.
Melbourne locksmiths also thinks another positive with a key-less entry system is that many of this type of systems come with the feature of being able to remotely unlock your door, so should you be coming home with a car full of shopping and no extra hands spare to help you out, this utility can be highly convenient and practical.
Although Melbourne locksmiths sees many benefits to a key-less system, there are also some negatives, so we would also like to bring up some of the cons of this type of convenience.
The first thing Melbourne locksmiths would like to bring to attention, is that of in emergency cases.
Handling electronic equipment is not always the easiest in a pressured situation, and it can be easy to become flustered and press the numbers correctly without fumbling on the key panel.
At extreme times it can even be difficult to remember the correct code.
Something that many we hear often as a concern to keyless systems as well, is that the code could be guessed by an intruder.
And although Melbourne locksmiths sees this as true, we also don’t see it as the major disadvantage as it is highly unlikely to happen as long as you make sure you don’t choose a code which is easy to guess, based on birthdays, old addresses and phone number etc.
What Melbourne locksmiths instead would like to place emphasis on here is the know issues that many of these type of systems have in case of power failures, and although some systems come with their own backup power reserve, there is still a chance that you may lose access to your home which wouldn’t be the case with regular lock and key.
Lastly, although Melbourne locksmiths have nothing against keyless solutions, we do see that although the convenience is high and in the ideal situation this type of solution would work well.
The price of a keyless systems weighs out the benefits of it, and if you are looking for the best security solution on a budget, it would not be our first recommendation.
Information on Light timers with Melbourne locksmiths
Melbourne locksmiths timerIf you ask any home security expert the vast majority of them would agree that leaving lights on light timers is good when you go away.
The Melbourne locksmiths team of course agrees on this as well and would advice it to anyone that is planning to spend time away.
In placement and setting the timers the Melbourne locksmiths team would recommend just to mimic your own behaviour in the evening, as so there is no chance to the look from the exterior in your patters.
Of course it’s not an exact science, but you can always test run it whilst you are in the house.
There are a few different types of timers, and although they don’t differ majorly there are some slight differences in them which may affect your own choice and preference.
And Melbourne locksmiths would like to also give a reminder to that although cleverly placed light timers in the house provides good protection and acts as an efficient deterring factor for potential intruders, it is no replacement for a proper home alarm system which if you ask us about.
Melbourne locksmiths are more than happy to provide you with information and advice on.
Common plug timers
The most commonly used timer which Melbourne locksmiths sees in practice is the type that you just place between the light and your socket at home.
They are easy to set, and most commonly very affordable in price.
There are of course some digital versions, often with a display which are commonly used as well, and when it comes to what choice between the two is the better.
Melbourne locksmiths doesn’t have a strong opinion, as they functionality is the same, and it’s more a matter of personal preference.
Timers wired though the mains
Melbourne locksmiths mains timerFor Melbourne locksmiths this type of timer is of preference, a timer which is hooked up to the mains, controlled by a digital display.
These timers also come with utility for convenience in your day to day life as well as most commonly offer good flexible programming, meaning that dynamic schemes can be set, which are more changing in time, and therefore acts as a better mimic of your being at home.
The biggest issue that Melbourne locksmiths sees with this type of timer is of course the installation process, since it’s hooked up to the main switch itself, it requires that the switch itself is rewired.
This takes some time and expertise, or a handy man for installation.
One more thing that Melbourne locksmiths would like to point out, is that these type of switches often don’t have the utility to use LED lights or energy saving bulbs.
Generally this type of timer will also come with a slightly higher price tag, however still very affordable and something that Melbourne locksmiths highly recommends.
SLS 24 HOUR Melbourne locksmiths SAFETY CAMPAIGN
Melbourne locksmiths safety Banner Here at SLS Melbourne locksmiths we’re happy to announce our new Bike and Road Safety Campaign to help support the local community.
We’re all too familiar with the busy nature of the roads and the risks faced by cyclists and road users.
Melbourne locksmiths vehicles are frequently driving around the city and adhere to strict and safe speed limits.
But we also understand that cyclists and children are particularly at risk of being involved in an accident.
We would like to provide children’s high visibility vests per month to schools, charities and organisations working with children as a Melbourne locksmiths commitment to safety.
Dedicated Light Bulb holders
For Melbourne locksmiths the already made light bulb holders which come with timer and often dimmer capabilities are a very good option if you would like to stay away from any wiring and re-wiring.
Instead of getting a timer installed at the wall socket or use a converter, you simply install the light fitting.
Often this type of fitting is not something that you can program and work on the being activated due to the light in the room.
And a draw back which Melbourne locksmiths would like to bring up is that they have at times been reported as not working correctly with a lamp shade.
7 day timers
Something Melbourne locksmiths also highly recommends, for utility without complicated installation is the type of timers that come with digital programming which allow for up to a 7 day cycle to be programmed.
This means that you can program in something which doesn’t seem automatic, and most commonly this type of timer is just an addition to your plug socket as well and operating on a battery.
For Melbourne locksmiths this would be the ideal choice for quick installation and for programming utility, and therefore higher security value.
What timer to pick
Melbourne locksmiths what timer to pickThe decision on what type of timer to get is something that Melbourne locksmiths are happy to leave up to you, it’s a matter of preference and what is of use in practice for each individual.

Some information on key cutting from Melbourne locksmiths
Melbourne locksmiths key cutting macheneToday key cutting is not exactly what it was a hundred years ago, today we have many things which help us with the advanced technology used in the industry.
The thing that Melbourne locksmiths recognises however is that the precision and skill needed are traits which remain.
Some may say that it’s easy and the machine these days will do all the work, this however is not true, and the reason we say it requires a high level of skill.
Is simply that there is a very big difference between a locksmith, like locksmiths Melbourne where the replacement key works first time, and with a smooth turn.
The little adjustments in cleaning, and sanding edges is what makes it.
And only someone of the highest professional skill will be able to do this right every time.
Another aspect which Melbourne locksmiths sees as commonly forgotten in this type of comparison with traders of the past century, is of course the complexity of the locks made.
Many brands and products offers keys which are 100% original, and no other key currently in the world will be able to open that particular lock.
Now that is something that Melbourne locksmiths sees important here.
The locks of the past were more of a dead bolt type, and the keys required to turn it were not as complex, and therefore it would render them very unsafe to use today.
What you will regularly find at a locksmith is either a manual automatic or semi-automatic machine for key cutting.
They work very similar, where the original key is traced and then replicated.
And in both cases the trained eyes of a locksmith is needed for the fine adjustment as to provide the best and smoothest lock opening experience.
On the market currently there are also a type of laser cutter, which just means that it’s cut via laser rather than the standard blade which it used to be cut by.
For cutting keys which are not of a standard type, say for instance keys which are tubular in shape, at times there is a specific machine or tool required, the same goes for keys which also need to be coded with electronic information and security.
At Melbourne locksmiths we can cut any type of regular key directly when you are present in the shop or whilst you take a walk around town, and you’ll have your fresh new key in your hand straight away.
However we can also cut the majority of custom keys, so should you be in need of a spare key for your custom made or electronic lock.
Please do also get in touch, many of the times all that is required out of the ordinary is to get some specialized spare parts in.
Should you have any questions about keys, key cutting, locks or anything related, or if you are in need of getting a key cut.
Please do feel free to get in touch with us today.
The Melbourne locksmiths team are always ready to be your service.

Recommending Anti-Snap cylinder locks by Melbourne locksmiths
Melbourne locksmiths anti snap cylinderWe would like to send out a reminder of the weakness in the standard cylinder locks making them venerable to easy bypass.
At Melbourne locksmiths would like to inform you on a technique known as lock snapping.
A technique which many homes in the UK at the moment are vulnerable to, in this technique you also don’t need any type of expensive or specialist tools which is the main reason to it becoming such a commonly used way to break in to someone’s home.
So the Melbourne locksmiths would like to send out our highest recommendation to make sure you are up to date, as the lock snapping technique is used in around a third of all burglaries in the UK.
The way it works I by exploiting a week point in the standard cylinder lock, meaning that it can take as little as 15 seconds for someone who has perfected the technique to gain access.
At Melbourne locksmiths we also see this as a relatively quiet method of performing a break in.
The issue with the standard has been known to Melbourne locksmiths and the locksmith industry for quite some time, yet there seem to be relatively low awareness amongst the community and the public.
This is the reason why the team here at Melbourne locksmiths want to make an effort to raise that awareness.
The fact is that many British homes today stand vulnerable to this type of attack thinking they are behind a secure lock.
The issue was announced in media back in 2006, when a locksmith reported the weakness to the media, but time passes quickly and we at Melbourne locksmiths have not seen anything with regards to this prompting people for better security in a while.
Should you have any security related questions at all feel free to get in touch with us here at Melbourne locksmiths, and keep tuned in for more updates on home security.

For small business security, some info from Melbourne locksmiths
Melbourne locksmiths small business securityIf you are the owner or the employee appointed to make sure your office, workshop or business premises is safe and secure, there are a few things that we here at Melbourne locksmiths would like to advice you about.
With smaller businesses increasingly being the target of intrusion, vandalism and other type of crime we here at Melbourne locksmiths sees the importance of having the area covered.
There are essentially two main ways to provide security for a business, one is though technology and the other is though having trained security personnel stand guard of the building.
Now for small businesses the later is not always the best idea as it comes at a relatively high cost, and often we see at Melbourne locksmiths that some sort of alarm and monitoring system is enough to keep risk down.
At Melbourne locksmiths there are a few different type of alarms from which you can choose, and our experienced staff can help you find what is best, and right for just your business.
With a monitored alarm system, if triggered someone will be notified, and often this type of service means that the police will also be contacted.
The unmonitored version simply means that when triggered the alarm will sound, and with this type of alarm there are a few different versions.
Some will come with the options of having floodlights activated hopefully scaring off the intruders before damage can be caused.
At Melbourne locksmiths we also offer wireless alarm systems, which operates with the options of cameras, flashing lights, sensors, motion detectors etc.
This is what we here at Melbourne locksmiths would typically offer to a small business, as it doesn’t come with an outside monitoring cost, and is highly effective.
There are more advanced technology alarms, such as motion detectors for outside, which will only trigger once suspicious activity is taken outside, however also at a higher cost, and this type of system is not something that we at Melbourne locksmiths would commonly recommend for small businesses.
The most important thing is that you choose what is right for your business and your property, so give us a call and speak to us here at Melbourne locksmiths about your small business security.
