When to Utilize a High-Security Door Lock

October 27th, 2021

When you have a home or business in Chico, CA, you want to do everything in your power to protect your property. While having a traditional lock and key can provide you with some base level security for your property, you may want to consider utilizing something a bit more secure in the long run for even more peace of mind.

High-Security Door Locks

These types of locks are deadbolts that have a security rating of UL 2058 which means that the lock has been proven resistant to lock picking, key copying, and other attacks. They are also complex cylinders, durable, have solid metal construction, and patented key designs that are difficult to copy. They also can't be sawed or drilled off like you could with a traditional lock which makes them a much more secure option for your home or business.

Where Should I Use High-Security Door Locks?

Unsure of where you could effectively use these door locks? Since they are a deadbolt, they can be used in any residential or commercial applications when you want to maintain a higher level of security than before. Maybe you have been recently robbed, or you have valuables you want to secure-then a high-security door lock is something to consider.

Residential and commercial doors, sheds and garages, closes, lockboxes, and even safes can use this kind of lock effectively, and it provides you with an increased level of protection for your property and belongings.

Other Benefits of High-Security Door Locks

In addition to the added peace of mind you gain from having a stronger lock in place, you can also experience the added benefit of knowing that your key cannot be easily duplicated if lost. Patented blanks are used for high-security locks which means that only the manufacturer or an authorized locksmith in Chico, CA can successfully duplicate the key.

Also, if you lost your key for a traditional and standard pin-and-tumbler lock, then you would have to replace the entire thing to secure the property. With a high-security lock, however, the lock can be reset, and a new key can be cut.

This type of lock as already mentioned is also tamper proof which means it cannot be drilled or sawed. It is also not a lock that can be picked because the keys for these locks are cut on an angle and the pins work with the mechanisms of the lock to unlock the door.

Finally, a high-security lock as you can see from above can also cut down on any long-term costs you may experience. Not only will you be securing your home, but you also save money by not having to replace the entire setup if the key or lock had been compromised.

High-security locks are an effective level of protection that any home or business in Chico, CA can benefit from. So, if you are looking for a more secure way to protect your assets, consider replacing your standard lock today with a high-security door lock instead.

What Our Customers Say

"I had the Alibi system installed several years ago. It has functioned flawlessly. The image quality is exellent both night and day and in all weather conditions. I particularly like the replay (which can be set at various speeds) and zoom functions of the system. Tech support from Crimefreeliving has been excellent. I have received quick responses to questions, and timely home visits — as when I changed IP carriers and my Alibi system needed to be reset. I have recommended Crimefreeliving to several friends."


"As a small business owner here in Chico we definitely saw the need for video surveillance. After expressing our needs and concerns Tim did an excellent job getting us set up with the set up with the appropriate equipment. He really took the time to address our concerns in a very friendly, professional and knowledgeable manner. I highly recommend Tim for all of your business and residential video surveillance needs."

Ron H., Owner/Auto Doctor

"I have to say I love having my security cameras at my home. Tim Truby did a wonderful job of installing the five cameras. He is very neat and cleaned everything up after the installation. He explained to me how to operate the monitor, my phone and IPad. However, I have had to call Tim because I'm not tech savvy and forget what he has told me. He usually just helps me over the phone and then all is well. I'm 80 years old and enjoy the comfort of knowing I have these security cameras."


"Tim Truby designed and installed a 32 camera system for us here at the Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District. We had received several other quotes from security system vendors, but Tim’s quote was the least expensive. Tim also installed the system quickly and has always been available when we needed him. We are very happy with our security camera system and we can highly recommend Tim Truby for all of your surveillance system needs."

D. Weseman, Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District

Crime Free Living updated our old video system with a new 16 Channel HD Alibi Video Security System. The old system had been added onto by different installers which resulted in a cabling mess. There were cables that worked and cables that went nowhere. It was a mess. Tim sorted it all out and installed cameras that are very clear. He also installed a monitor for our cashiers to watch hidden areas, a monitor to watch the entry door, and a monitor that allows employees to watch the outside parking and gas pump area. All work was done on time and very professional! Will always recommend Tim and Crime Free Living.

S. AM PM Chico Arco Station

"I had Tim install an Alibi Video Security System at my residence and a couple business locations. The remote view option is invaluable to absentee owners or anyone who travels a lot. The clarity and quality of the cameras have allowed for viewing employee theft. The evidence provided from the HD video cameras was fantastic! Tim was professional and provided extra value from his law enforcement background."

J. Folsom Arco Station

"Tim, I want to thank you again for doing such a fantastic job on installing a wireless IP security camera system at our dream home. The extra time that you took to hide wires, and install a clean, professional system is much appreciated. I still can’t believe the clarity, quality, and ease of use of this new system. I wished that I would have met you before our original inferior system was installed by another company. Now, whether I am at home, or monitoring the system from around the world, I know that my home and family are safe and sound."

John M.

"In April of 2017, my husband and I made a phone call to Crime Free Living that turned out to be a smart and wise decision. Amazingly, in just a few hours, Tim installed four Dome Security Cameras, weatherproof enclosures, and hooked up into our home a 23" Full HD Widescreen Security Monitor. Even more than his professional expertise was the time spent with us in making sure that this system was working correctly and properly installed on our phones so that anywhere in our travels we can monitor our new home in Magalia."

Tieka and Don S.

"I have been using Crime Free Living for the last couple years ar work and at home and I really recommend this product. Tim is a very good service provider. If he can't figure it out, he's got good tech support with the system that he offers."

Gary D.

"I have known Tim for over 10 years. To date, Time with Crime Free Living has installed two separate surveillance systems for my company. With each system, Tim has listened to my needs and custom dsigned surveillance systems for my specific needs and within my budget. The equipment used is always state of the art, the workmanship is top notch, and Tim is the example of trustworthy. I would recommend him for any job."
