Seven Home Safety Tips in the Lehigh Valley

We’re at home a lot of the time right now due to the current world events. And while being at home has its challenges for many, we may not be thinking about safety as much as we should.

Here are a few quick tips to help get your home safety on track.

  1. Don’t leave a key in an obvious spot: How many times have you had to check in on a friend’s house only to find that they hide their spare key under a potted plant or at the top of a door frame? You’re not being sneaky, you’re being obvious. If you’re going to hide a spare key outside, you may want to up your game a little bit.
  2. Give the illusion of activity: We won’t tell you which brands to buy, but there are numerous inexpensive home lighting automation solutions that you can set up via an app to give the appearance of activity even if you’re home alone.
  3. Get some security cameras, lights and motion cameras: The peace of mind is enough to justify the cost of outfitting your home with security cameras. Now is a good time to upgrade your system. Having footage or sound of an incident can be invaluable.
  4. Secure your garage: It’s a weak spot. This goes for side doors as well. You want them to be as secure as any other entrance in your home.
  5. Trim the hedges: Make sure your landscaping doesn’t make it convenient for someone else to hide from view.
  6. Stay in contact with friends and family
  7. Call us to upgrade your home locks or if you’re in a lockout situation

Do You Have a Hidden Key, Lehigh Valley? Read this!

If you’re like many people, chances are you have a key hidden somewhere in case of an emergency. We’ve covered a few dos and don’ts already, here, here, here, and here. So while you think you might be covered, it’s a good thing to check on your secret hiding spot, just to make sure it’s still good to go in case you need it.

If you have it hidden outdoors, you’re going to want to make sure that it hasn’t been damaged with the elements. A quick inspection can assure there is no rust, which can gunk up a lock or potentially break the key.

You also might want to consider re-hiding it. If you’ve needed it maybe once in the past, simply putting it back in its spot should be ok. But if you’ve needed it a few times, the chances of revealing your hiding place go higher and higher with each use. By finding a new and secure spot, you’re now protected by both a lockout AND someone who might know where the key is.

Lastly, can’t find your key? You might want to consider a reykey of your home. Sure you might’ve just misplaced it, but that isn’t a guarantee. If you don’t know where every copy of that key is, that means there’s a chance someone else has it.So if you need a hand with your locksmithing needs, call us!
