Keyless entry just got smarter. The 2011 Buick LaCrosse CSX will feature a smarter keyless entry that anticipates when the driver, or passengers, want the cars doors locked and unlocked. With new key fob technology, the driver is able to program which doors are to be locked and unlocked and when. The key fob can be carried in a pocket, purse or briefcase.

When we need a new deadbolt for our home our natural inclination is probably to run down to the local home improvement store and grab a deadbolt that is on sale. However it is important to know that not all locks are created equal. Most deadbolts are graded by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) with a minimum residential rating of a grade 3. ANSI tests are based on such criteria as ability to withstand impact, torque, and load. At A-MAX Security we want consumers to know that there are more choices than the minimum standard. The top grade for ANSI is Grade 1. We recommend that everyone take a few minutes to get educated on deadbolts.
