5 Security-Related New Year’s Resolutions To Consider

Posted on January 16, 2023 by A-1

Some people love New Year’s Resolutions. Others make it a resolution to not make any resolutions. (But isn’t that a resolution in itself?)

Regardless of which camp you fall into, it’s not too late to improve yourself or set some goals for improving in the upcoming year. Security is one area many people don’t think about, but peace of mind is something you can’t replace. Since this area is our specialty, here are five security-related New Year’s Resolutions to consider.

  1. Avoid Getting Locked Out of Your Car or Locked Out of Your Home

We humans can be forgetful people. Whether it’s your house keys or your car keys, it just takes one mistake to cause an unfortunate, stressful and potentially dangerous situation. Fortunately, there are several ways to ensure that you are never locked out of your home, car or business. 

Here are a few ideas to help with this resolution:

  • Get a duplicate key made and keep with a trusted friend or family member.
  • Upgrade to smart locks that let you use a combination or code to access.
  • Buy a wireless key fob that won’t lock inside a car.
  • Set up reminders for when you leave to include a reminder about keys.
  1. Create an Emergency Plan

Another low-hanging fruit in the world of resolutions, an emergency plan can give you peace of mind about your loved ones and employees in the event of an incident. Consider creating an emergency plan for fires, thefts, shootings and other adverse situations. Document that plan and go through training with your family or employees to ensure everyone knows what to do.

  1. Security Monitoring

If you don’t have a security system or video doorbell, a new year is a great time to invest in one. Security monitoring is becoming more and more affordable while packing on new features. It’s never been easier to monitor your home or business when you’re on the road or out of town. 

  1. Find a Locksmith You Trust

Many people search for “locksmith near me” without knowing who is reliable and who’s not in an industry that’s known for having its share of fraudulent operators. Having a professional local locksmith that you trust is an easy security-related resolution. Just as you have numbers for doctors, plumbers and electricians, a “best” locksmith number should be easily accessible. At A-1 Locksmith, we guarantee our customer satisfaction and will do our best to ensure we’re your ideal security partner.

  1. Upgrade Your Security System!

If you’re already set with the different types of security solutions that make sense for your home, business or vehicle, an upgrade might be all you need. There are likely better or newer versions of every piece of security equipment you own, so at least look into your options.
