New Palo Alto Locksmith Blog Takes a Look at Access Control Systems vs. Traditional Locks

GoPro Locksmith is a reputable Palo Alto, CA lock and key service that likes to keep its residential and business customers updated as to how they can take their important lock security to a higher level. Evidence of that comes in the form of a blog that was recently posted on this company’s website. This blog titled ‘Access Control Systems vs. Traditional Locks’, goes into detail on the many advantages that modern keyless locking systems offer or more traditional keyed locks. It gives those that read the blog a clear picture of how access control systems not only can improve a home or business’s lock security but also add significantly to the convenience of unlocking any type of door. This is just one of many informational blogs that the company has posted to its website which can be found here at

A representative for the company, Renata Amir, says, “It’s no secret that we here at GoPro Locksmith are big fans of access control systems. They just offer so many advantages over keyed locks. That includes how hard it is to keep traditional locks secure with so many having access to keys and the hassles that come with issuing keys in the first place. All those potential problems with keyed locks quickly go away once someone installs a lock that is controlled by an access card, keypad code, or smart device. We feel that access control locks offer so many advantages over keyed locks that we felt it was important to write a new blog article on the subject.”


The new blog started by mentioning that although keyed locks are time-tested locking devices there is now a better way to control access through entryway doors and to other areas in a home or business and that’s by using keyless locks and area access control systems. This is especially true for businesses that traditionally have to distribute and manage a large number of keys and the headaches that involves. It also mentioned the security concerns that come with keyed locks because of how easily they can be picked or how often keys can find their way into the wrong hands. The article mentioned that all of this goes away with more user-friendly access control systems. These come in such useful forms as keypads with pins or passwords, key fob devices, access cards, or as part of a Bluetooth-controlled mobile app for smart locks. As stated in the new blog, these locks are harder to break into than keyed locks and also have easily changed access or card codes, and some can even keep a record of what time a card user comes in and out of a building or secured area. The bog post concluded by mentioning that GoPro Locksmith can help any home or business owner with the installation and repair of their keyless or access control devices.

Those that have had GoPro Locksmith install keyless locking devices for them have been very happy with the service the company provided them. Guy Rom stated, “Re-keyed entire home including adding smart locks. They were punctual, pleasant, and professional.” Stav Weiss proclaimed, “We called Go Pro Locksmith because our door lock broke down. Phil came the same day, five stars to the quick response! He tried to fix it first, then, when he saw that it was beyond repair, Phil and Renata helped us choose a new modern-looking smart lock and door handle combination on the internet. They were even the ones that provided the Amazon links. After the lock and handle arrived, Phil came back to install them on short notice at an unbeatable price. Thank you, GoPro Locksmith, you are real pros!” These glowing reviews were taken from the company’s Google Maps Business Listing where they average an exemplary 5 out of a possible 5-star rating on almost 70 reviews.

Amir went on to say that their company does much more than just install access control locks. This includes taking care of a wide variety of automotive lock and key needs such as resolving lockout situations, replacing lost car keys, and changing out ignition cylinder locks. Some of the residential locksmith services that they offer include broken key extraction, lock rekeying services and the installation of high-security window locks. She added that their family-owned company which was established in 1999 can also help out any commercial business with such locksmith services as safe combination changes, door closers, and panic bar installation & repair.
