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.

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.

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.

Say you own a business, and your business has an office. Your office has employees that come and go, with some turnover. You want to believe that once an employee leaves, there are no hard feelings and your office is secure. Still, you often change passwords on the computers and change access to the phone systems.
