It has been far too long since my last blog! Sometimes I feel like my voice gets stuck and it is frustrating because there is so much awesome infomation to share.
Today's tip is for both homeowners , condo's and apartment owners who may have gardners, pool cleaners, housekeepers or other employees and it does not a cost a dime more to this:
Did you know that when you re-key your perimeter locks you can create a mini-master system so your key passes every lock but the employee key can only passes the gate or door you choose? The employee key is called a change key, your key is called the master key.
OH, I ALMOST FOGOT, IT IS ALSO A GOOD IDEA WHEN YOU GIVE YOUR KIDS A KEY BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS LOSE THEM!
That means that if you fire them(NOT YOU KIDS) you only need to rekey the one gate or door, not all of them. For owners with several locks this can save them a ton of money.
Most locksmith companies don't mention this because they either don't know how to do it or because they simply don't care to go the extra mile.
So the next time you need to re-key your home or condo remember this tip.
One more thing; The topic of locks, keys and security is no more exciting than insurance but it is just as important so your questions and suggestions are appreciated.
Yours in Security,
