New Lock Installation: Fingerprint Code Lock Technology on the Rise

Fingerprint code locks are growing in popularity among our customers. As the saying goes, out with the old and in with the new. People are trading in their old traditional locks for technologically advanced fingerprint code locks.

We recently received a special request to install a fingerprint lock in North London.

Fingerprint locks can be opened by either a fingerprint or pin code. The lock simply scans your unique fingerprint and grants you access to your home. They’re useful if you’re a forgetful person since they don’t require a key. No key means no more locking yourself out.

This installation process was quick and easy. The lock chosen had new cutting-edge technology. The sleek design was just an added bonus. The lock blended perfectly in with the exterior door (as seen above).

Fingerprint code locks guarantee the same amount of security for your home, if not more.

We’re expecting to see a lot more customers update to this new technology.

Break in Repair: Burglar Gets Creative for Peak Burglary Season

Summer  months bring about a spike in burglaries everywhere. The weather is warming up and people’s guards are going down. Burglars seem to be getting a bit creative during this season.

Let’s take a look at this from a burglar’s perspective:

Imagine, you, yourself are a thief. You’re at a creative block. You’re sick of picking locks and kicking down doors. It’s the same old thing every day. Peak burglary season is coming and you’re at a lull. You need some inspiration for the summer months.

Then it hits you…… a drill! Drilling through the lock is the perfect fresh technique for you! It’s the foolproof groundbreaking (or should I say lock breaking) idea! Lock your doors because the “Drill Bandit” is on the loose.

We imagine that is the exact thought process of our most recent burglar…

This is a first for us. The burglar drilled through the lock completely. The drill destroyed the lock allowing the burglar to enter the home.

Luckily, London Locksmith came to the rescue. We had the lock replaced and our client’s house secured within moments. We used a high-security lock to ensure the homeowner’s maximum safety.

Mission: Replace the damaged locks resulting from a break in

Emergency: door and lock were severy damaged and needed to be replaced
