Depending on both the strength of surrounding walls and the presence of existing wiring, wireless intercom systems can be installed in order to avoid complications. Our technicians will diagnose whether a wireless installation is ResidentialIntercome Installation Waterloorequired by analyzing the structure of your residence. Wireless systems are offered at affordable prices. All components of the intercom system including the master station are inherently thin. This structural benefit allows the system to be installed directly on a wall in holes cut or drilled into the wall space. The master station is sufficiently designed to fit in the space between the wall studs. The typical intercom installation requires only a phone wire and a dial up connection, and if a wired setup is preferable, all wiring will be concealed by placing it through the wall and along under-floor joists.

What to Do When You Lose Your House Keys

What to Do When You Lose Your House Keys

What to Do When You Lose Your House Keys

               

           

Have you ever returned home after a long day at work and felt so excited when you pulled into the driveway because you knew your comfy sweats, socks and couch where only a few moments away.

Nothing beats unwinding after a day of work stress. You hop out of your car, quickly grab your belongings and head to the front door.

Then it happens.

You realize your keys aren’t in your pocket or that the house key is no longer attached to your keychain.

Now what?

No one else lives there and it’s already too late at night to phone your friend for help. Before you get into a panic or cry at the inability to just get inside and relax, here are a few tips for what to do when you lose your house keys.

Check for Alternative Entry

The first thing you should do is think about another way to enter your home. And we don’t mean breaking a window or risking injury. But perhaps there is an unlocked or open window, or the garage access door that isn’t locked. If you mistakenly left it open, today might be your lucky day.

Locate a Spare

If everything is locked (as it should be) your next move should be to keep calm and think about the location of any spare keys. Do you have one under a decorative rock outside? Did you make a spare and give it to a friend? Keep it in your wallet? These are typically good tips to plan for an event like this, but if you haven’t, have no fear, there is another option.

Call a Locksmith

A professional locksmith with emergency services works around the clock and will arrive at your residence quickly to assist with getting you back inside your home. Once there you can discuss options to change the locks (if the key is now lost) or rekeying the cylinder so that a new set of keys can be used.

Kitchener Locksmiths provides a wide range of residential locksmith solutions. Everything from lock repair, lock installation, and rekeying of lock cylinders. Serving local communities throughout western, southern, and central Connecticut. Our rapid and reliable service ensures your home is as secure as it can be.

 Locksmith in Kitchener 24 Hour Emergency Service

 

A 24 hour locksmith service in Kitchener Ontario is the first place a person should call when they find themselves locked out of their vehicle at an odd hour. Unfortunately, some vehicle owners try to cut corners and don’t call locksmiths. Instead, they call law enforcement. Police do often help out car owners who are locked out of their vehicles. They will run checks for warrants, so there have been times when those calling for help were taken to jail for things like traffic tickets or unpaid parking tickets.

Not using a professional 24 hour locksmith Kitchener Ontario for a car lockout is just a bad idea. If law enforcement is used, the vehicle itself might be damaged. Cops aren’t experts at dealing with locks. It’s not that difficult to damage a lock or car door while trying to unlock the vehicle. If a locksmith does any damage to a customer’s property, their insurance will handle the costs. That’s not going to happen if a lock is damaged by some inexperienced helper. A car owner can end up paying a dealer a $200 or more to fix a damaged lock. If there is other door or window damages, the costs can be even higher.

Kitchener Locksmiths and other lock experts who provide around-the-clock services just don’t deal with vehicle locks. They can help with home locks too. When keys are lost, the owner never knows who has access to those keys. Perhaps the keys were stolen so that they can be used at a later time for a burglary. It’s just best to assume that the keys are in the wrong hands. Acting quickly can save a homeowner’s property. A locksmith can come out as soon as possible and rekey or change the locks. Of the two options, rekeying the locks is usually the cheapest option. Rekeying locks simply makes the current lock take different keys.

Locksmiths also provide services to those who are trying to secure their homes. They can recommend the best locks for the job. Locksmiths can also help their customers with any safe needs they might have. High-quality safes are very efficient at keeping valuables protected.
