There are SO MANY companies offering new and fancy digital locks on the Australian market. Most are electronic, some connect to wifi, some have a key over-ride mechanisms. But how many will still be working in 4 years ? Alas few people ask this question and its a real problem. Since 1988 we have be offering digital door lock installation Brisbane residents choose. Digital door locks first appeared around 20 years ago with Lockwood’s DX variant. It was a mechanical digital door lock with 15 buttons and offered a quick and easy way to secure a door without using a key. Sadly, YouTube has multiple tutorials promoted by companies like The Marketing Heaven showing how to defeat many of these mechanical digital door locks. Conversely electronic digital door locks are mostly immune from these methods as they go into “lockout” mode after a few wrong attempts. Electronic digital door locks can be programmed in a myriad of different ways. Multi-user, date and time expiring codes and Bluetooth connectivity are some of the more popular options. It is worth noting that electronic digital door locks will keep out most criminals however they are no match for a pinch or prybar attack. Its my opinion that the most important features of a digital lock must be a key over-ride and standard mounting holes. The Samsung range of electronic locks are well though out BUT they use “Australian” mounting holes. In contrast many electronic locks we sell can be swapped over in place of many common door locks found in Brisbane homes. Samsung also regularly change their lock designs which makes it difficult to swap or upgrade between models.

Alas we regularly get asked to install locks that people have bought from Bunnings. This is fine in theory however when there is a problem getting the lock to connect to your wifi the solution can take many hours to resolve. Water resistance should also be considered if the digital lock is to be installed onto a gate that is out in the weather. Residential gates also need to prohibit a criminal from reaching through any gaps & opening the inside lever.

Australia also has certain building codes that must be adhered to particularly where fire or apartment doors are concerned. Any lock fitted to a fire rated door must also be fire rated. Lastly, AirBnB rentals need locks that are both easy and secure. The locks must stop guests regaining entry at a later date by using an old code. Many quality electronic digital door locks can be programmed using a App and a mobile phone. Simply add or delete codes and program the duration period required. To obtain a digital door lock installation Brisbane residents only need to email a photo of the door. We will then prepare a written quote, usually the same day.

I frantically phoned KGB on a Sunday a few weeks ago…and the lovely Wayne answered the phone straight away. Was so lovely and helped me out when I locked myself out of my unit. Had previously called another Northside locksmith but the guy I spoke to was quite rude that I had called and didn’t want to help me out whatsoeverWould 100% recommend!!!read more
I worked with Brock and Courtney to get everything setup and to plan the job. Brock was great planning out our smart lock solution. We had Paul come out and complete the installation and he was great, very professional, friendly and the install went very well. I would definitely recommend KGB security and would certainly use them again.read more
I can't recommend KGB highly enough. After struggling for over an hour I realised I needed professional assistance and Kel was wonderful in helping me over the phone with clear and easy to follow instructions. Great customer service and thank you so much for your help.read more
11/10 customer service, I had to travel to 3 different key cutters but they could not help me and then as soon as I went to KGB they helped me instantly. They walked me through the process so I would have an understanding on what they have to do if it would take sometime and 5 minutes later they walked out with my keys. Would definitely recommend, friendly service and nothing but the best quality products.read more
Wayne at KGB Security in Cooper's Plains was very helpful and knowledgeable. He guided us as to which safe would be suitable for our needs and helped to load it onto our ute with the forklift. If you're looking for a safe, home or business, I would highly recommend this business.read more
Shoutout to technician, Jamie, for replacing all the locks on my doors recently. Service was incredibly seamless. Made the call; Jamie was out the very next day & done, with ease, in less than 20 mins (including the cutting of new keys). No nonsense, professional, trustworthy and friendly. I now feel more safe in my home. Highly recommend !read more
Jamie from KGB did a phenomenal job in fixing out door lock, not only does it work again but it works better than it ever did. He was extremely professional and friendly, and did a great job in problem solving an issue which wasn't at first obvious. If the rest of the KGB staff are as good as Jamie, then I have no doubts about using KGB for all of my locksmith needs.read more
I made first contact with Alison when I needed to upgrade my safe. She promptly emailed me through several options and followed up with a call to run me through and answer questions as realised we lived a way away. Next day we travelled to South side office and Wayne stepped us through the many options and was well versed with legislative requirements and installation challenges. Wayne gave super advice and saved us money. Staff promptly loaded our purchase into our car on a Saturday morning even though it was clearly obvious they where extremely busy.We will be happy to recommend to all family and friends.read more

I had a first class experience with KGB Security. Kel was very helpful in assisting me to assess my security needs. He didn't try to push anything on me and instead was more concerned with helping me find the most appropriate option. His offsider Alex was also very helpful in assisting me complete the transaction. It was smooth sailing from the get-go. Would thoroughly recommend.read more

KGB were able to resolve my big bunch of keys from 10 to 2 with what a layman might call locksmithing magic ! Top marks for friendly and efficient service. I would recommend this company in a heartbeatread more
I needed my car key repaired, I had no idea if that was possible or if i was even at the right place. I rocked up at KGB Coopers Plains with no mask on and we are in LOCK DOWN :OI was KINDLY reminded that I needed to have a mask. No attitude, No frowning, just absolute POLITENESS. I eventually managed to find a mask in my car.Although they were not able to help me, they took the time to have a look at my problem (key) and even gave me a temporary solution. Thanking you Jamie. I was also directed to the right place/person and offered to call that person for me. Thanking you Wayne.Though this is just the normal way to interact with one another. It seems these days that a lot of people have forgotten that we all need one another and a simple smile or a kind word go a long way.Best customer service :) Once more, Thank you to both Jamie and Wayneread more
Wayne was able to get Paul their master locksmith to open my cash drawer within a matter of seconds, due to the cheap design and locking mechanism it was deemed an unviable repair for which they didn't charge me anything. Very professional operation and I have no hesitation in recommending them for your lock and security needs, now or in the future.read more
Cal and his team are exceptional. One of our business safes wouldn’t open over the weekend... I contacted Cal on the Saturday and he organised a specialist locksmith to arrive at the store and sort out the problem. They provided prompt, professional and reliable service. I highly recommend KGB Coopers Plain!read more
