Reputable Locksmith Serving the Whetstone Area

There are many different types of lock on the market. One more modern innovation is the digital lock. While they’ve been available to companies and homeowners around Whetstone for a good while now, they’re certainly new technology in the grand scheme of things (the first double-acting tumbler lock was made in 1778, and the first safety lock in 1784).

 

For those of you around Whetstone who don’t moonlight as a locksmith, the benefits and drawbacks of digital locks might be a mystery. But if you’re looking to invest in them for your home or commercial property, it’s good to know that you’re getting a lock that won’t let you down. Here we’ve run through what makes digital locks special, so you can gauge whether or not they’re likely to be the access solution for you!

 

Advantages of Digital Locks

 

Immune to Picking – As there’s no key hole, a digital lock cannot be picked. Lock picking is a common method that a burglar might employ to gain access to your Whetstone premises. Being able to completely forget about the risk it poses grants peace of mind.

 

Keyless Entry – If there are a number of people who’ll be regularly heading in and out of part of a property, then cutting a key for everyone might prove inconvenient or expensive. Telling your employees or tenants, if you’re a landlord, a short pin number might prove far more efficient. You also eliminate the chance that people will lose their key (a security risk) and ask you to have one recut (time consuming).

 

Smart, Modern Appearance – Many modern businesses are looking to cultivate a smart, corporate aesthetic. While digital locks certainly contribute to this image, they’re not overly flashy and in fact quite utilitarian. Digital locks are an efficient and up-to-date access solution, and businesses that employ them will look as if they share these same qualities.

 

Disadvantages of Digital Locks

 

Forgetfulness – We can all be a bit forgetful sometimes, and forgetting a 4-6 digit pin code isn’t exactly difficult! If you forget your pin, it can be quite inconvenient, especially if you’re in a rush. Luckily, when you buy a digital lock from our locksmith near Whetstone, you’ll receive special instruction on how to quickly and easily change the pin code. While it may take a few extra minutes to get where you’re heading, it won’t be the end of the world.

 

Loose Lips – Our locksmith recommends that users of digital locks keep the pin code on the hush. It should be only given to employees or tenants who need to access the area which the locked door guards. Everyone who knows the pin should also be advised not to give it out. If someone with sinister intentions overhears or is told the pin, they may target your property for theft. In the Whetstone area and looking to invest in digital locks?
