Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors, and is not openly transmitted.

Tarheel Safe & Lock, Inc. utilizes the latest and most advanced CCTV solutions complete with Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) with a variety of quality and performance options and features available.

Tarheel Safe & Lock, Inc. offers this form of surveillance service primarily to commercial clients; however, our CCTV solutions also help provide our residential clients with peace of mind.

When someone leaves or loses a keycard you can immediately delete that access to your property.

No more need to re-key when a key is lost or an employee leaves. These systems can be managed on site or via the Internet.

We have access control solutions for one door at your home or hundreds of doors at your business.

Rekeying is employed not only for replacing an outdated key but also for aligning multiple locks with a single key.

Whether you’re looking to purchase a new safe or need to repair an existing one, our company offers a range of services to meet your security needs.

Our company provides top-notch sales and monitoring services for alarm systems, ensuring that you have peace of mind knowing that your property and loved ones are protected 24/7.
