Dallas Locksmiths Are Experts In Technology

Posted on January 4, 2011 by Jaece Hogue

When you hear the words, ‘Dallas locksmiths’, what comes to mind? For most people, they would probably picture someone somewhat disreputable looking, maybe an ex-convict that splits his time between legally and illegally breaking into cars. Some time in the not-so-distant past, this image would probably be pretty accurate.

However, with today’s recent advancements in automotive security, being Dallas locksmiths is actually more like a combination of being computer experts and watchmakers. There is an incredible amount of precision involved in negotiating a wide range of car lock presentations. Every manufacturer does locks differently, not to mention how complex a vehicle’s ECU (electronic control unit) can be.

In today’s world of vehicles, cars are run solely by computers. Some even communicate over the internet with services like OnStar.  In the ever changing world, it’s important to use only the best. At A-1 Dallas locksmiths, all of our Dallas locksmiths are licensed and certified by the ALOA (American Locksmiths of America) and are available 24/7 to assist you.

Dallas locksmiths routinely take classes on and study the latest advancements in locksmith technology. Keys have kept the same basic shape for the last 50 years, but their technology has changed drastically with the invention of computer chips.

All of the inventions that have threatened to make the technicians as obsolete as the Rolodex, have only served to complicate the industry. The proliferation of keyless entry systems means that leaving your keys in your car no longer requires a mobile tech to get you back on the road. However, when the keyless entry system breaks or the code resets, our Dallas locksmiths have the technology to reprogram the computer sytem. Each of our mobile units is equipped with its own code machine. This $20,000 piece of equipment will read and program every vehicle and transponder chip on the market.

At A-1 Dallas locksmiths, we’ve kept up with the times. Our code machines are constantly being updated. We service new vehicles and have the codes to create new transponder keys for you if you lose your key. Our technicians know how to fix any vehicle lock, whether it’s a 2010 Ford Explorer or a 1910 Studebaker Garford 40.
