Perhaps you are lucky enough to live in one of the Keston Park properties?

Or perhaps you live in a modest property. Either way, your security is something you shouldn’t take for granted.
Our local locksmith Keston deals with emergencies but is also happy to come out to your home or office to advise you about the security of your property. He has lots of useful advice to give you as he’s been a locksmith in BR2 for many years. Here are just three of his three favourite tips for residents:
- Most burglaries occur on weekdays when many people are out at work. The offenders are often substance abusers looking for easy-to-sell items to raise quick cash. They look for homes that appear unoccupied during the day and are look dark and unoccupied at night. They also like to target houses that show signs of wealth, such as immaculate landscaping and expensive cars. So a key tip from our locksmith Keston is to make your house look occupied during the day.
- Go round the outside of your property and make sure you don’t make life easy for intruders. Remove and secure items that may be used to break in, such as ladders and garden tools. You can ask the locksmith Keston to show you his range of strong padlocks, which are ideal for this purpose.
- Get your locksmith Keston to fit sturdy door locks for you: a door is the most convenient way for a burglar to get into a property. In fact, nearly two thirds of all burglars simply use the front or the back door. Favourite methods of entry include: picking locks, forcing the door open or breaking a glass panel and unlocking the door from the inside.
Did you know that if your locks don’t meet current insurance standards, your claim may be invalidated if you are burgled? You might like to ask our ITCC locksmith Keston to review your security for you. He can check your window locks and will tell you which sort of locks you have on your external doors, for instance. Upgrading to higher levels of security may be cheaper than you think, and technology has moved on in recent years. Our locksmith BR2 can show you the latest one key systems, for example. You can now have just one key to open all your doors, which cuts down on the weight of all those keys in your pocket or handbag. You could also consider moving to a brand of keys that has tighter security when it comes to getting replacements cut. Only those with a special security number have permission to get replacements for these types of keys.
