Milwaukee LOCK INSTALLATIONS AND UPGRADES
Call upon our nationally renowned locksmiths when you need new locks installed for your home or business!
Installing a quality solid door lock is the first step to keeping your home or office properly secured. Old locks are often the weakest point in any security setup, as they can be rusted, too many previous users may have had access to keys, or other issues. Making sure that your keys are yours and are up to date is the most important part of maintaining your security. Too many homeowners and businesses forget about security in their planning, putting all of their investments at risk. Perfect security is nearly an impossible goal, but through both planning smartly and making sure to properly assess risk, you can be at ease, without having to worry about leaving your home or business alone when you choose to spend time apart from it. But everything begins with the obvious. Are your door locks secure, or is it time to replace them?
WHEN IT'S TIME TO CHANGE YOUR LOCKS
For both residences and businesses, in general, security is inherited, meaning that all the security weaknesses are also inherited with the next tenant of a location. In general you don't know how many people have access to your keys, and ultimately how many people have access to your home or business right now. There's a good possibility that an ex-spouse of a previous tenant or disgruntled former employee of a previous business has access to your location right now. And that means security risks that you don't need. In fact there are a number of potential problem spots:
- When you have to relocate to a new office
- A roommate moved out but retained possession of the keys
- When you need to upgrade your security system
- As part of your home or office renovations
- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged
- Divorce, death, or a new tenant
- Moving to a new home
- If your vehicle was broken into and a copy of the keys were taken
- Your keys are lost or stolen
- After a break-in that damages your lock
- When your previous employee 'forgets' to return the office keys
When it's time to upgrade your residential or business security, call us-- we've got you covered when it comes to lock installation and upgrade services.
LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES
We Do Both Home and Office Lock Installation
The first step to updating your locks is to call our offices so that we can do an initial security inspection. We take into account variables such as style, possible weak points in security, and finally, the individual budget for the work. Although we work so competitively that our prices are the lowest that you can find anywhere in the country, we also have a number of different options for people and businesses who don't have the latest advances in security planned out in their budget. Often a good solid deadbolt and quality modern alarm system will do the job just fine.
What this doesn't mean is to run off to the local hardware store and just buy the cheapest deadbolt. Different doors work best with certain types of deadbolts, and unless you are experienced in installing locks, it is best to call in a professional to do the installation so that the door is locked properly. The biggest weaknesses in home and business security are often the result of user error, and often a poorly or incorrectly installed lock can be the cause of a break-in or security breach later. Instead of dealing with the danger and risk of doing it incorrectly, call on our professional, certified locksmiths today to install your lock correctly.

STANDARD LOCK SYSTEMS WE SERVICE
Enter The Deadbolt
The long-time standard of personal and business security, the deadbolt lock is familiar to everyone. Most homes and many businesses are equipped with locks that are built into the door and the wall. Of course, newer technologies help to offer even more security such as digital locks, but the deadbolt for at least some time remains the most common lock technologies (though we are equipped to set up even the latest technological advances in security.) We service a variety of brands of locks, including:
- Master Lock

The Next Level: The Mortise Deadlocks
A Mortise Deadlock, at first glance, looks like a deadbolt, but it isn't: a Mortise Deadlock is unlockable on both sides with a key, as opposed to one side having a knob. What this means is that this type of lock is precisely the kind of lock you would use when you want to guarantee that only people authorized to do can get in. Therefore, it's most important to make sure that a lock of this type is used in areas where security is paramount and access is by nature limited (this isn't the sort of lock that is used on a bathroom or kitchen; this is more ideal for private areas not meant to normally be seen by many others. We carry the most important brands of Mortise Deadlock, including the following:
High-Tech Lock Systems: the Latest in Security Technology
In recent years, locks have moved whole generations in design. Not only are newer lock systems often more secure than key systems (using a variety of verification methods, they are also cheaper to replace than older key systems.
The immediate successor to the physical key, the keycard system is designed to make security simpler on the user end. Instead of a key (though physical keys can also be placed as backups), keycards allow the user to swipe to enter. They can have multiple points of access so that access can be restricted from one area for some users and are both programmable and reusable, meaning that an ex-employee can be locked out, even if he steals a keycard.
Keypad Systems: keypad systems work very similarly to keycards, but have the advantage of not even having cards but codes. Smart businesses will often double up security by ensuring that users have keycards and codes.
Fingerprint and Retina Scans
Fingerprint and Retina Scan Systems: We see them in big offices, and we see them in movies, and now they're here: facial (eye) scans and fingerprints are showing up on phones and other devices: don't your home or your business deserve the same security?
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems: Electronic lock systems can often be used with WiFi to not only give the owner an accurate picture of who is where in a house or business but can also alert owners if there is a security breach. Police can usually be called remotely to the scene and then our emergency locksmith service can survey the breach and repair it.
As technology continues to drop in price, the cost of these amazing systems continues to drop and are now reaching cost parity with traditional lock systems.
