What To Do if You Lose Your Keys?

Whether you get busy and absentmindedly leave your keys somewhere, your child drops them down a sewer grate while you are out for a walk, or you are involved in a personal robbery, life happens and sometimes people find themselves without their keys to their car, home, or business. So what can you do when disaster strikes and you find yourself without your keys? Stay calm. The Lockman can help. Let’s take a look at the steps you can take:

  1. Take inventory of the keys you must have right away. These will include your car keys, keys to your home, and/or your business.
  1. Take a mental inventory of who may have a spare key to any of the aforementioned and call them immediately.
  1. If you find that no one has a spare key to your home, car or business that is readily available, depending on your circumstances, whereabouts,or type of vehicle, it is time to make the decision to call a locksmith or car dealership. If you choose to call a dealership, it may be much more costly than calling a locksmith and a locksmith can make keys for your home or business as well. A car dealership may also require you to have your car towed into their facility at an additional cost to you. At a dealership, you are also at the mercy of the wait time required due to their workload.
  1. Should you choose to call a locksmith, it is important to find a licensed and bonded locksmith with a good reputation. This locksmith sbe able to respond quickly in the given circumstances, be an automobile locksmith to make a traditional key or have the ability to access your key fob, transponder or smart key system, such as The Lockman.

Benefits of Installing a Ring Doorbell and Ring Cameras with Professional Camera Installation

Home protection and that of your family is of great importance to every homeowner and technology has come a long way to keep your mind at ease. Ring brand smart doorbells and cameras allow you to not only see who is at your door but can also provide you with video surveillance you can observe from your phone anytime and anywhere, allowing you to keep you, your family, your home and belongings safe from crime, fire or anything unexpected that could cause damage or inflict harm.

The following are benefits of purchasing Ring products for your home and having The Lockman install them for you:


Ring security cameras pick up on movement through motion sensors and alert you through an app on your phone immediately so you can start a livestream and call for police, fire or ambulance to help you or your family. The great thing about this is, you don’t even have to be at home. You can be anywhere to be able to get help as soon as possible. It is also possible with Ring accessories to speak with whomever might be at your door through two-way radio technology. 

Monitoring Your Property

Ring cameras can be installed by The Lockman professionals so that you may self- monitor your home and the area around it. It is important to have The Lockman install it because they are used to working with locks on a day-to-day basis and are familiar with safety of the home involving what angles to hang your cameras to get maximum exposure area so you may keep a watchful eye on your home’s access points, your vehicles, a pool- if you have one, and places that may be hidden from plain view, like sheds or outdoor buildings. The Lockman also knows how to install cameras where bushes and trees will not obstruct surveillance.

Keep Up With The Family

When you are not at home or cannot be next to loved ones at all times, Ring cameras can help you keep up with older children playing in the backyard, an elderly parent taking a swim, or your daughter’s boyfriend dropping by unannounced. If you observe an emergency or a situation that needs attention, you can call for help immediately and avoid harmful situations. In other words, camera installation around your home gives you peace of mind.

Watches Your Pets

Ring cameras allow you to watch over your pets when you aren’t at home. This is of great help if you notice them digging, trying to jump over a fence or if they are endangered by a predatory animal.

Extra Benefits

The app for Ring accessories allows you to capture images and recordings so you may share them with your insurance company in case of a fire, storm or home invasion. These recordings can also be shared with police to help them identify a criminal or to alert neighbors through social media of any dangers that your camera may have picked up. 

Whatever may be going on around your home, Ring accessories and cameras professionally installed by The Lockman are a great addition to your home’s security and allows you to rest peacefully knowing that you have an extra layer of protection for your home and family.

The Importance of Re-Keying Your Entire House

The Lockman Memphis

I had the pleasure of doing somewhat of a ride-along with a locksmith from The Lockman recently. Jason Erwin is a well-educated locksmith that made what I assumed would be a complicated job seem easy. I watched as he rekeyed an entire home for a family getting ready to move into their new rental home. I learned a lot while watching Jason rekey the locks of the entire home. The main thing I learned with my time with Jason is the importance of having a single key for every door. These days, more than ever, safety is essential. This sweet family with three beautiful children understands the value of security and trusted The Lockman could get the job done right.
