Here are five security tips for landlords from locksmiths:

Upgrade Locks

Make sure you’re using the latest and most secure locks available. Many older locks can be easily picked or bypassed, so it’s important to upgrade to high quality, tamper-proof locks.
Ensure that where using mechanical, standard keys, your properties use restricted key systems. This is a vital step to ensuring your property is secure as it prevents keys to be copied without approval from the landlord or agent in advance. Speak to your locksmith today about getting your properties on restricted key systems. 

Install a Security System

Whether in a commercial or residential setting, security systems can come in a wide range of formats to meet your specific needs. Including alarms, cameras, motion sensors and smart phone managed systems. 

Not only can this provide you with a security mechanism to deter and prevent intrusions and burglaries, it can also provide tenants with peace of mind. Adding in a security system can also be considered a selling factor making potential tenants more likely to apply as the idea of a complimentary security system can be appealing in the property market.

Change Locks Regularly

It’s a good idea to change the locks on your rental property at least once a year. This helps prevent unauthorised entry and ensures that your tenants feel secure. You may also find that using a restricted key system mitigates the need to change locks as frequently, saving you time and money.

Inspect Locks 

Regularly check the locks on your property to make sure they’re in good working condition. If you notice any damage or wear, get them replaced as soon as possible.

Invest in Smart Locks

Smart locks provide landlords with both convenience and security. With a smart lock, a landlord can easily manage their properties from their smartphone, allowing them to grant access to tenants or service providers without the need for physical keys.

Additionally, smart locks provide enhanced security features such as real-time notifications when someone enters or exits a property, and the ability to remotely lock or unlock a door. Investing in smart locks can provide landlords with peace of mind knowing that their assets are protected while also simplifying property management.
