Door Locks: Your Questions Answered

Many people are sceptical when it comes to door locks because of new technologies. They rely on alarm systems and smart security measures to keep them and their home safe. 

But what about the basics?

Today we’re talking about all things door locks, including five of our most commonly asked questions from our customers. 

What is the best lock for front doors?

We understand that shopping for a new door lock can be quite overwhelming. There is such a wide variety and with most services being online now, you can’t be sure you’ll like your new lock when it arrives. 

Before deciding on a new lock, you should ask yourself these questions: 

  • What type of lock are you replacing?
  • What is your budget?
  • How many people will be using the lock to access the property?
  • Do you want to unlock the door with a key, code, smartphone or fingerprint?

The more you know about what you’re wanting to achieve with your door lock, the easier it will be to shop. 

For advice on how to choose your new door lock, give us a call on 0330 174 0851, and a member of our team will talk you through all of your options. 

Why do I need a door lock?

A door lock is a useful, affordable and effective way of keeping your home safe. 

Door locks also act as a deterrent for burglars. If potential thieves see you have measures in place to protect your home, they’re less likely to attempt a break-in. 

Do I need to lock my door?

The short answer is yes. 

Make sure you’re vigilant with locking all external doors when you’re out of the house or during the night. This will make thefts less likely and make you feel a lot safer when you’re out and about or asleep. 

It’s good to lock your door even when you’re in the house so you’ll get into the habit of locking (and checking) your door to prevent unwanted access. 

Can I use door locks alongside other security systems?

Having a range of security measures in place can maximise your safety and give you the peace of mind that you’ve done everything you can to protect yourself from burglars.  

Using a mixture of visible systems in and around your house shows potential burglars they’ll be caught in the act if they attempt to break in.               

Where do I get a high-quality door lock?
