Key cutting is the practice of creating duplicate keys for existing locks. Locksmiths are trained and equipped to produce duplicate keys for various types of locks – residential and commercial alike. Key cutting involves duplicating an existing key, shaping it precisely to fit each lock type in question, coding if necessary, and testing to ensure everything functions properly.

The Key Cutting Process

  • Step One of Key Cutting | Duplication

The initial step in key cutting involves duplicating an existing key. Various methods are available to duplicate it manually, electronically, or laser duplication.

Manual duplication entails using a key-cutting machine to trace the shape of an existing key onto a blank key, while electronic reproduction involves scanning it into a computer and using a key-cutting machine to duplicate it.

Laser Duplication: Laser key duplication involves using a laser beam to cut new keys based on the shape of an existing key. Equipment Required for This Method of Key Creation includes key cutting machines, electronic key duplicators and laser key cutters.

  • Step 2: Key Shaping

Once a duplicate key has been created, it must be tailored to fit its associated lock. This involves trimming away any extra metal and shaping it to meet its grooves and ridges. For this step, the equipment needed includes key files, gauges, and vices.

Step 3: Key Coding

Modern locks often require coded keys with microchips embedded that communicate with the lock to allow access. Key coding involves programming new microchips to match existing codes on existing keys, requiring an electronic key coding machine and key programmer as essential equipment.

CCTV And Alarm System Installation

Home security has become a top priority in today's society, and CCTV cameras and alarms have become indispensable tools in protecting both property and people. We will cover both the benefits of installing CCTV and alarms in your home and how best to work with a Houghton Regis locksmith when installing them.

Why Install CCTV and Alarms in Your Home?

  1. Deterrence

 One of the primary advantages of installing CCTV cameras and alarms in your home is their ability to deter potential intruders from breaking in. Their mere presence can put off intruders who might try breaking in; criminals are less likely to target houses that display visible security measures reducing the chances of break-ins.

  1. Monitoring

CCTV cameras offer a convenient and cost-effective way to remotely monitor your Houghton Regis property anywhere worldwide using your smartphone or computer. Access to live feed allows you to monitor any suspicious activities immediately and take appropriate actions if needed.

  1. Evidence

 Should your home become burglarised, CCTV footage can provide crucial evidence for police to help identify intruders and bring charges against them. Since CCTV footage is admissible in court proceedings, its presence could help build an uncontestable case against these perpetrators, increasing the chances of conviction.

  1. Home Insurance

Installing CCTV cameras and alarms can lower your home insurance premiums. Insurance providers frequently offer discounts to homeowners who increase security on their Houghton Regis property; by installing CCTV cameras and alarms, you are showing your commitment to improving home security while decreasing claims risks - ultimately leading to reduced premiums from insurance providers.

Installation Procedure of a Locksmith System

Installation of CCTV cameras and alarms may seem daunting, but with professional help, it should go smoothly. Here is a step-by-step guide on the installation process for locksmiths.

  1. Assessment

The initial step to start the installation process should be assessing your home security needs. Our Houghton Regis locksmith will survey your property and suggest CCTV cameras and alarm systems tailored to meet them, considering factors like property size, entry points and desired level of protection.

  1. Installation

Once you have selected and purchased CCTV cameras and alarms, a locksmith will begin the installation process. The locksmith will strategically position cameras and sensors around your property to be as discreet as possible and not compromise the aesthetics of your home.

  1. Wiring

Our Houghton Regis locksmith will then arrange to install concealed wiring for CCTV cameras and alarm systems in your home so as not to detract from its aesthetic appeal or risk damage during installation. In addition, your locksmith will ensure the cables are fully protected against potential damages during installation.

  1. Testing
