HIGH SECURITY LOCKS

There are two main advantages of installing a “high security lock”. Fundamentally both of these advantages stem from the idea that you must have an actual key to the lock in order to open the door. This may seem obvious until you realize that you do not currently enjoy either advantage.

The first advantage provided is that without a key, the lock does its job and forces a potential intruder to use means other than opening the lock to enter the home.

This forces the intruder to break a window or kick in the door. The noise created by either alternative is likely to draw considerable attention, which is often enough of a deterrent for a potential intruder to look elsewhere, especially in urban settings.Should you happen to be home, and in the worst case scenario asleep, the noise created by the intrusion is likely to awaken you and give you time to react.
The second advantage provided is that if the intruder chooses to enter via the lock, the lock must show evidence of such activity. Because the Bowley Lock cannot be picked, bumped or tampered with, an intruder would be forced to use some other means such as drilling the lock with a high powered drill and high end bit or cutting it off with a torch, both of which would be obvious signs the lock had been penetrated. Standard locks can be opened easily without any signs of entry. The evidence of an entry is of high importance. There have been tens of thousands of documented cases of robberies, which have not been realized until hours or days later. It isn’t until items are noticed missing that a break in is considered as the cause. In some cases unaware home owners have opened their door (which had no signs of forced entry) to find the criminal still in the home. A high security lock lets you know something has happened, and allows you to call the police before you enter the home. This advantage can seem minor, until you return home to find an intruder present.
