We are Master Locks Service and we serve customers in and around Westchester, Illinois but you don’t have to be here to benefit from effective home security services. There is sure to be a locksmith in your location that can help you to achieve your goals. Let’s start with some options if you are living alone in an apartment…
The key is to find a community you feel safe and comfortable in. Once you have established this, you need to make sure your unit is protected. This might entail having window locks installed, a patio lock installed and a deadbolt on your front door. When you make the move to an apartment complex, you might opt to be on a higher floor if you are living alone. This might give you a bit more peace of mind. There are options for window locks like the Safety 1st 2 Count ProGrade Window Lock, which hangs over the window track to prevent it from fully opening and a slide option allows for disengagement during periods you might not need or want the window lock. Another option for a window lock is the Gatehouse 4-Pack Aluminum Sliding Window Lock. Again, you can have added peace of mind knowing that this part of your property is secured.
If you don’t have a secure lock on your apartment’s patio door, check out some of the options avaiable. There are sliding door locks that you can find online, the Nightlock Security Lock Patio Sliding Door Barricade lock and so many other options. Clearly, you have many choices at your disposal when it comes to better securing your apartment. But don’t forget about deadbolts. These can offer an additional layer of security, giving you the peace of mind you deserve when you are living alone. You can also go so far as to get a bedroom bolt. As a matter of fact, these are very reasonably priced and sure to fit within your budget!
Single Family Home Security
Now let’s talk about peace of mind for those who live alone in a single family home. Buying or renting a house is very exciting, but it is important that you feel safe while at home, even if you are by yourself. When you own a home, you can have a video doorbell installed, so that you can see who is coming onto your property. You can also have a security camera installed. Some opt to have cameras installed inside of their property, too, so they can record who goes in and out. This might not be a bad idea if you have contractors in and out of your home, because let’s face it – you can’t be in multiple places at the same time!
Just like with an apartment, townhome or condo, you can look into options like window locks, patio locks and deadbolts. There are a wide range of options at your disposal. Have a garage? Consider having a garage door lock installed, even if you already have an opener system in place. This can grant you even more security than you already have. You can’t beat feeling peace of mind while in your home, so these are things that you deserve to have!
Have you heard of the SimpliSafe Shield Home Security System? This is a wireless system that allows you to monitor the surroundings of your home. It even has sensors so that you can stay protected. Of course, this is just one option of many that you have available. When it comes to security, there are many popular brands that a locksmtih will likely work with, such as Schlage, Arrow, Kwikset, ASSA, Baldwin, Falcon and more. You can look into the various products that are available to help you.
