Baby, It’s Cold Outside: How to make your Home Welcoming & Safe during the Holidays

The holidays are a time of joy and laughter, of fellowship and celebration, as family and friends come in from all over to be together. As we often find around this time of year, the devil is often in the details. In order to make it a relaxing and special time, we often ironically get caught up in planning, worrying, and stressing about how it will all come together.

With all of the family coming in and out of the house, and all of the shopping trips and errands to run, there arises a need to give your family members an option to get access to your home while you are gone, but with this need also comes security risks. You could make copies of your key, or leave the key under the mat, but these options greatly increase the likelihood of a key getting lost or misplaced, and especially in the holiday season, many trespassers are looking for these kinds of opportunities.

This is a concerning problem, but thanks to the innovation of keyless entry technologies, this problem can be solved very easily and efficiently. A Keypad lock provides a homeowner with the ability to completely eliminate the need for a key. With a code, or even with a bluetooth enable smartphone, one can enter their home without turning a key at all. What’s more, codes can be passed out on a temporary basis, which means you are in control of your lock at all times.

This is a solution that not only relieves some of the stress and worry of the holidays but it also provides better security by eliminating a physical keying system. At Loc Doc Security one of our values is Refined Quality; therefore we want to provide only the best parts and materials, that you can truly trust to protect you and your things. This is one of the reasons we install the Yale nexTouch lock. It is a keypad lock which can store up to 500 user codes, and also has zWave technology to connect with your smartphone. It is ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 Certified and weather resistant, meaning it is durable and long lasting for your outdoor application.

Imagine now a last minute shopping trip to get Christmas presents and stocking stuffers. While you’re out you start getting phone calls: your plumber is on his way to look at your leaky faucet, and your grandparents flight landed early and will be home before you. Normally you start stressing about having to drop everything, right? Instead, your plumber and grandparents both have a separate code to get in. They both get access to your home which expires whenever you decide it will. Your life just got a little more stress and care free, and your holiday just got a little better.
