Do I Need Any Information Before Calling?
We can assist you with a lock installation even if you have very little information on the locks in question, as our mobile locksmith vans are equipped well enough to flexibly respond to just about any situation.
However, it does help speed the process up a bit if you can identify the type of lock that is being installed, and the one that is currently installed if applicable. If the brand name is not visible on the exterior, it can usually be found on the edge seen when the door is open. If the lock is electronic, any information about a connected security system is also helpful.
Types of Locks We Install
The simplest and most straightforward lock installation is a new doorknob handle with a deadbolt. It is also possible to install locks throughout a home or business that allow a master key to open all doors, with other keys having only limited access. The benefits of such a system to a commercial business are obvious, but these systems also have residential applications as well. For example, one situation we frequently see is when a homeowner wants to give a housekeeper access only to certain rooms, or wants their key to open the front door knob but not the deadbolt. The rise of home rentals through sites such as AirBnB has also created a greater demand for keys that can only open certain limited rooms within the house.
American Local Locksmith can also handle the installation of "smart locks" and keycard-based systems. These electronic systems allow property owners to very quickly grant, modify and remove access for all those who are carrying an access card. These changes can be made remotely from any computer or mobile device with access to the Internet.
