In today’s world, it is not so surprising to see a lot of conventional mechanisms replaced by technological equipment and the like. This is indeed, to the betterment of the society as a whole, but each individual will have his own word about it. What matters is that it has provided great scope to everyone and opened up many paths previously not reachable by many.

Technology has replaced the traditional lock and key method of entering a doorway. Those days we used to get locksmiths down to unlock a door or to create a secure lock system for our entrances. This has not been entirely replaced by technological advancements. Still, we have a majority of houses with mechanical locks and still need the help of a locksmith to open up a lock or create a new one.The same applies to key cutting which goes hand to hand with the lock creation process. If we have a key, then it should correspond to the latter. This is indeed, a great physical security mechanism followed by the early ages, and still going strong.

There are some situations when we might require the service of an emergency locksmith, especially during an urgent situation. Today, we are lucky enough to have these kind of services providing assistance on a 24/7 basis. It was not the same situation a couple of decades ago. For this we should indeed be grateful.Then there comes the era which we have stepped in to, overcome with technological improvements. This has paved way to a real saving of time and energy from our part. It has also been extended towards the lock and key tradition by replacing it with a much better and high tech introduction. It is that of the biometric access scan, which is widely used in the corporate arena. However, traditional household doors still have the mechanical lock and key, which is indeed as secure as it used to be, only to be even better along with time. You do have people who know how to break in to houses through all these locks. But if it is correctly implemented, then chances are very slim for a successful break in. however, as an additional precaution, many houses and areas are now equipped with CCTV and related facilities to take account of any incidents which occur in the neighborhood. This has given people the opportunity to sleep in peace, knowing that the best of technology is with them. This is one good thing about life in this era.
