Smart Lock Installation

There are many different types of smart locks available today, and while some are easy to install, others may require troubleshooting. Some smart locks unlock when a specific cell phone is in proximity, while keypad locks require a specific code and biometric smart locks use a fingerprint scanner. Most smart locks connect to the internet and must be set up to connect with your network. A professional locksmith can install smart locks in your home quickly and easily, and show you how to use them to help you have a secure home.

Keypad Locks & Smart Locks

Smart home locks are increasingly popular because they offer options like the ability to remotely lock and unlock a door, hands-free unlocking, keyless unlocking, and the ability to give others temporary access to your home via a code. Electronic smart locks can be integrated with other Internet of Things devices in your home, allowing you to lock your door with a voice command to your smart speaker, and they often come with built-in cameras for additional security. Most experienced locksmiths are familiar with the best keypad and smart lock options. These locks can increase your overall security, plus you can gain entry even if you've left your key inside.

Lockout Service

Most of us have locked ourselves out of our homes or apartments at one time or another, and there is nothing quite so frustrating. The verified local locksmiths at 1-800-Unlocks offer mobile lock-picking services which means we come to you. Emergency lockout services are simple for residential locksmith specialists. This allows them to get to your home quickly with all the tools they need and unlock your door for you without unnecessary drilling that can cause irreversible damage to your locks. With our affordable home locksmith service professionals, you can rest easy, knowing we will help restore access and your problem is solved and your home is safe.

Door Jamb Repair

Whether your door has been kicked in or you're looking to reinforce your door jamb to prevent kick-ins, an experienced residential locksmith can help you figure out exactly what you need and make sure your door jamb is securely anchored and reinforced for safety. For example, we may be able to install a strike reinforcement plate onto the door frame using 3-inch screws to anchor directly to the studs in the wall. It's best to combine multiple layers of security. When the protection of your home and family is at stake, choose an honest, quality home locksmith from 1-800-Unlocks who will get the job done right.

Lock Changing & Upgrading

If your home's locks have worn out, are no longer working well, or if you're looking to change the appearance of your door, it might be time to change your locks. Changing the locks on your home is also a good opportunity to upgrade them to a higher quality, higher security lock. A qualified professional locksmith can help you find a home lock that is beautiful, functional, and fits your lifestyle. Locksmiths typically offer several finishes such as chrome, brass, black, satin nickel, satin brass, antique brass, and much more. Plus, we're able to offer high-security keyways which cannot be bumped, picked, or duplicated without authorization.

Rekeying-residential-lock

Lock Repair For Deadbolts & More

If your house lock is broken or causing trouble, you don't necessarily have to replace it. An honest, experienced locksmith will be able to tell you if it's possible to repair your lock–and if it's worth it to do so. Reasons a lock may need to be repaired include worn-out pins, a broken tailpiece, old springs, or if the lock is spinning, loose, or has been overtightened during installation. Many quality locks can be fixed without too much trouble, and a good locksmith will often be able to perform lock repair without unnecessary replacement or drilling. They can even perform lock re-keying for you while they're at it.

Residential key copies

Professional House Key Copying

When you need a copy of your house key, a professional locksmith is the best person to help. They can come to you if necessary and create a copy of any kind. A home locksmith can even test your copied key to ensure it works properly and doesn't stick in your locks or damage them. If the key is hard to turn or you hear a clicking noise, a locksmith will be able to determine why it's not working perfectly. Use 1-800-Unlocks to find a residential locksmith near you who can cut you as many copies of your house key as you need and test them in all of your door locks.

Lock Installation

It's not too hard to install a home door lock yourself, but there are good reasons to have a professional residential locksmith do it. A good locksmith has installed dozens–even hundreds–of locks in their time and can get your new lock installed and working quickly. Depending on your needs, a residential locksmith can drill and install locks such as deadbolts, jimmy-proof locks, knob locks, or smart keypad locks that work with a smartphone. They can also help you ensure your new lock is installed in a way that guarantees maximum safety for your home and your family.

Replacing home lock

Lock Replacement

Whether it's for looks or security, replacing your locks can get complicated, especially if you're swapping out your existing locks with a different type of lock or if you're replacing all of the exterior locks in your home. A trustworthy local locksmith can easily replace your door hardware and even make sure they are all rekeyed to work with a single house key. Our locksmiths can even swap mortise locks for cylindrical locks. Regardless of the lock's footprint, or the type and thickness of your doors, we can help. Beyond that, our pros can also show you high-security keyway options to further enhance your protection.

The Cost of a Residential Locksmith

Our residential locksmiths can rekey or almost any lock in your home, which saves money over replacement.

1-800-Unlocks cares about your budget and security needs. Our goal is to keep you secure, not break the bank.

When you contact us, we’ll provide an up-front honest quote. If you have just moved into your house, you may be wondering about rekeying vs replacing locks. From the point of view of the locksmith, the main reason you should need to replace a lock is if it’s truly broken beyond repair.

There are other reasons you may choose to change the locks of your home such as design or function, but overall, it is less expensive to rekey locks than replace them, because the cost of any brand new locks will increase the total cost of the job. An experienced locksmith should be able to easily rekey almost any lock.
