When the snow’s falling as fast as the temperature, many of us finally start doing what we should be doing all the time: parking our cars in the garage, where they belong when not being driven. The security benefits of keeping your car in a locked garage require no explanation, but is your garage really as secure as you might think?
The holiday season is finally here, which means that it is time to enjoy the season with family and friends while getting into the spirit and shopping the day and night away. It is surely one of the most hectic times of the year; however, it is also full of great love and cheer. If you are like many families, you are busy buying the perfect present for friends and children, and often end up ignoring your own needs and wants in the spirit of giving. This year should be a little different. Instead of crossing yourself off the list, you may consider a gift that is great for both you and your family.
If you own a newer car, it is likely equipped with a smart key. This is a key that has a series of sensors and microchips, which allows the doors to lock, unlock, and even start without the use of a traditional lock and key. These devices typically serve as a larger part of an anti-theft system that is built into vehicles, wherein the vehicle performs these functions with the smart key being in close proximity to it.
Airports can be a tense and hectic place to be in. People are coming and going rather quickly. Some are going on vacation, while others are visiting a sick relative or traveling for business. Whatever the reason, each traveler is away from home and out of his or her natural element. More importantly, they are on high alert, given the world in which we live in today. In this situation, why would you ever travel without a lock to fully secure your bag(s)?
It is that time of the year where children are heading back to school, and many parents are heading back to work. This means many children are the last to leave the house in the morning and the first to arrive home in the afternoon. While individual states have mandates as to the age a child can be left home alone, many parents are more protective than the states demand and choose to keep their children with a nanny, a sitter, or an after school program for several years after the state mandates. As a parent, you may wonder, when it is appropriate to give you child a key to the house, letting your child stay home alone, even if just for a few minutes.
It is summer, which means we are enjoying lounging around the pool enjoying water activities in our own backyard. This is always a fun, exciting thing that is enjoyed by all of us, our friends, families, and neighbors alike. However, having a pool in your backyard means great responsibility. While you may know and trust your friends and family, there are still children that may be too young to know better, and there are always those people that don’t think anything of trespassing on another's property. As the homeowner, must take an extra precaution to prevent harm from those who are not invited onto your property.
Since we opened our doors back in 1990, Rapid Key Recovery has asked every single customer for picture ID and Proof of ownership.
It is time to pull off the tarps and bring those summer toys out of hiding. Get back on your motorcycle! Enjoy the adventure of riding your ATV! Get back on the lakes with your watercraft! They have sat long enough and need to enjoy the sun as much as you do!
Buying a new home is a whirlwind of an experience. If this is your first house, everyone has advice for you. What to do, how to do it, how much money you need, who to hire, and more. You may even get superstitious advice as to what to bring into your new home when you arrive. Most advice will end up having little bearing on the actual home purchasing process. However, there is one piece of advice that should never be ignored: change the locks the moment you move in. This can be the whole difference between being safe and being completely caught off guard.
