CHICAGO (WLS) — There’s a new reason to keep a close eye on your keys. The ABC7 I-Team tested new apps that make copies of keys without the owner’s knowledge or permission.
Two of the key cloning apps say the new technology doesn’t make it any easier to steal keys. In fact, they say it leave an electronic trail. But some locksmiths have concerns.
The I-Team shows you how easy it is for someone to get in your home with help from a smart phone.
We usually think of keys being made by bringing in the physical copy. But now, a smartphone and white piece of paper can clone your key.
NONSTOP Locksmith featured in CBS News, on deadbolt Locks. You secure your deadbolt and think that you are safe; however, some Locksmiths that they have spoken with estimate that in at least 1 out of every 10 homes, deadbolts may not be working properly. NONSTOP Locksmiths mention that the bolts might not be aligned properly allowing accessibility. Safety also depends on the bolts one buys.
The video also give an example of a woman that describes that thieves and double deadbolts got into her apartment after having deadbolt locks installed on her door. NONSTOP Locksmith demonstrates that one should check to see that the deadbolt should not be able to be pushed in. In addition, Chuck at NONSTOP Locksmith describes how to check if your deadbolt is working properly. One should close the door and lock it and then open it up and fully extend your deadbolt. By following these steps, this will help assure security and protect all homes.
