Inspect and Maintain Locks:

The first step in winter home security is ensuring that your locks are in excellent working condition. Cold weather can affect lock mechanisms. Schedule a professional locksmith inspection to clean, lubricate, and adjust locks as needed. Rekey or replace locks if necessary for added security.

Secure Your Windows and Doors:

Windows and doors are common entry points for burglars. Check for any gaps or weaknesses around these areas. Repair or replace weather-stripping, and consider adding deadbolt locks to strengthen your home’s defences.

Smart Locks for Winter Convenience:

Consider upgrading to smart locks for convenient control over your home’s security. Smart locks allow you to lock or unlock your doors remotely, providing access to trusted visitors or service providers while you’re away.

Keyless Entry Systems:

Keyless entry systems are becoming increasingly popular for their convenience and security. They allow you to enter your home with a code or even a smartphone app, eliminating the need for physical keys that can be easily lost.

Security Cameras and Lighting:

Bundling security cameras with proper outdoor lighting can enhance your winter security. Motion-activated lights can deter intruders and help your cameras capture clear footage during longer nights.

Home Security Audits:

Consider a home security audit with a locksmith. They can identify vulnerabilities in your home’s security and provide recommendations for improvements.

Emergency Locksmith Services:

Winter weather can sometimes lead to lock-related emergencies, such as frozen locks or accidental lockouts. Make sure you have the contact information for an emergency locksmith on hand to address any urgent security concerns.

I rang Andy when I had a key was stuck in the door and he provided very good advice and feedback over the phone. He took the time to show me a step-by-step guide on getting the difficult key out of the lock and kindly gave some maintenance tips to ensure it doesn't get stuck again. Highly recommend - brilliant service.
