The Key to Home Security: How the Right Safes and Locks can Protect You from Crime

Each year, over 3-million homes are burglarized in the United States, and nearly 12% of those burglaries involved acts of violence. The truth is, Americans are at risk for home invasions and burglaries much more than you might think, and the Houston area is no exception. 

Luckily, a few preventative measures and a highly experienced locksmith can help protect you, your family, and your home from these terrible crimes. With the right safes and locks properly installed by a trained locksmith, you can rest easy and lower your chance of being a victim dramatically. 

Houston Safe and Lock has more than 100 years of experience providing this security, and we're here to provide you with the crucial knowledge to keep your home safe. 

  1. How Do Locks Protect Your Home?

Simply having high-quality locks installed on your home's entryways will dramatically lower your chances of being burglarized. Thieves, while determined and willing to do unconventional things to get what they want, are proven to walk away from a potential target when faced with a time-consuming roadblock. In this case, your home's locks are your first form of deterrence, and most thieves won't persist after fussing with them for a few moments. 

However, you need high-quality locks that are professionally installed to ensure they deter thieves sufficiently enough to keep them at bay. A low-quality lock can be bypassed in seconds, and an improperly installed lock is likely to fail with ease. 

At Houston Safe and Lock, we're dedicated to performing professional lock installations, and we only use the finest locks possible to ensure your home's safety. These include Mul T Lock, Medeco, and Tuff Strike branded locks that outperform even the best commercially available locks on the market. 

  1. How do Safes Protect You from Crime? 

When thieves target your home, they're often looking for the most valuable items you have. Your most expensive heirloom jewelry, your cash savings, and other items they can steal without much of a hassle are prime targets. A home without a safe makes taking these items a fairly simple task. Even if you believe you've hidden such things well, thieves know where to look. The only way to prevent them from getting away with your most prized belongings is to store them in a proper safe. Similar to how locks on your doors prevent thieves from entering in the first place, safes force the ones who do get in to settle for lower-value items. 

A good safe can also come in handy in case of a house fire or flooding. For example, the safes we offer provide more than two persistent hours of fire protection. This makes them not only ideal for protecting against thieves, but also for securing your cash and essentials in case of a fire. 

Safe acquisition and installation are specialties of ours at Houston Safe and Lock. Not only do we have 100 years of experience with safes, but we also offer the highest quality and most reliable safe models on the market. This includes options from Jewel, Amsec, and Perma Vault. More importantly, we can provide these safes to you at a fair price, transport them to your home, and install them professionally. This ensures that you get the most reliable performance out of your safe and that you can rest easy knowing your belongings are protected.
