Choosing the Right Key System for Your House
Although homes are already equipped with a key system, it is certainly worthwhile to consider installing a new system. With a range of systems available, it can be difficult to decide which one is most appropriate for your home.
Out of all the options available, selecting a registered key system may be is the most sensible. The biggest advantage of registered keys is that you know no one else has a key to your house. Because of the key’s shape and size, it cannot be replicated in any way giving you complete control over who has access to your locks. Also the registered design key is only licensed to registered locksmiths. This way no unauthorised key cutting facility can duplicate your key.
The number of people who could get into your home right now is startling. I know of a scary story where a tradesman got a key copied for every house he ever worked at! Previous owners also might have a key to your house. Or if your house is a rental property, then every past tenant might have a key. So anyone who has recently needed a tradesman, is renting a house or lives in a home they didn’t build could be at risk. This unrestricted access to your home and all your possessions is unnerving to say the least.
The process of changing your key system is not as complicated as it may seem. A locksmith such as Chubb can install a new key system without changing the entire lock. Rather they can simply install a new cylinder or barrel. Installing a new key system can be really simple – and for the safety ensured it is well worth it.
With a registered key system, you can rest assured knowing your possessions are safe under lock and key. So if you’re looking for a mobile locksmith in Auckland, Wellington or anywhere else in New Zealand, ask Chubb about registered keys.
