Apartment Alarms Help Replace the One Thing That Renters Insurance Cannot, Your Peace of Mind

I am in the business of home security devices, specifically apartment security devices, and time after time I receive orders from customers that have already been the victim of a burglary to their apartment and hence I feel as though I’m assisting them just a bit too late. Don’t get me wrong, it is never too late to install an apartment alarm system it is just that one of the wonderful benefits of installing such a system is never having to feel that horrible feeling of insecurity after a break-in has already occurred, and unfortunately when most people decide to install a security system.

The reason so many people fail to install apartment alarms is because oftentimes people don’t even realize such devices exist. People are obviously aware, and understand the importance of alarm systems for single family homes but few, for whatever reason, are aware or understand the importance of apartment alarms. The fact of the matter is that an apartment is far more likely to be broken into than is a single family home and installing an apartment alarms is far more easy and far less costly than the average security system for a single family home.

Another reason I think apartment alarms may take a back seat in people’s minds is because many renters will secure a renters policy and leave it at that in regards to securing the apartment. Renters insurance is wonderful and should absolutely be purchased before moving into any new residence but that alone isn’t going to protect perhaps the most valuable item of all, your peace of mind. A renter’s insurance policy can replace the new 50-inch flat screen, the appliances, jewelry, and furniture but it won’t replace that awful feeling of being violated that one will naturally feel after a burglary has occurred. I have never had to experience that horrible feeling that one must surely feel the night after a break-in has occurred. Trying to go to sleep and not knowing who was in your residence last night and more importantly whether or not they intend on coming back. What really pains me though is that this feeling of insecurity could have been so easily avoided had the victim simply installed a 20 dollar door guard alarm.

Most apartment alarm systems cost about the same as a decent toaster and take less time to install than that toaster takes making toast. Often, especially if one is not in a garden apartment, a simple door guard alarm on one or more doors (depending on the layout of the apartment) will suffice.

So please, if you or someone you love is renting, don’t just stop at purchasing a renter’s insurance policy and take the time and small amount of effort to secure and install a simple apartment alarm system.

Stay Safe,

Home Security – Six Top Apartment Security Tips

As recently as eight years ago home ownership was at an all-time high. Part of the reason for that of course was government intervention. Democrats came to the conclusion that home ownership was a right of everybody and it was government’s job to help everybody get a home. So they did away with the traditional requirements of getting a mortgage.

They made it so easy to get a home that people who had no business getting a home got one anyhow-thank you federal government!

This ultimately led to the collapse of the housing market led by literally millions of foreclosures on those same homeowners.

Most of these homeowners were then forced out of their homes. They needed a place to stay. So an unintended consequence of all this has been a rise in the demand for apartments.

Apartment complex owners are enjoying record high occupancy rates.

For those people who live in an apartment complex, they may develop a false sense of security. It is true that more and more complexes have made it more difficult to gain entry, there still hundreds of thousands of them where there is no secondary security point of entry. There is your front door and that’s it!

Every week I read or hear about an apartment dweller who is accosted by a complete stranger. There are several things that apartment dwellers can do to improve their security even if the apartment complex owners won’t.

Several of these tips apply to homes as well. They have been proven over time to be the most effective. So here are the top six apartment security tips to improve your apartment security.

1. Lock your door even when you’re at home. I always suggest that you use some kind of an alarm, preferably a wireless security system. That way if someone breaks in, especially when you’re not there, your neighbors will know.

2. Lock your windows even when you’re at home.

3. Change the locks on your front door. As a new apartment owner you are given keys to your place. You have no idea how many other keys there are floating around. Even if you have to pay for the keys it is worth it for the peace of mind.

4. Don’t develop a false sense of security. Just because there may be an extra security point in your complex, they are not foolproof.

5. Apartment complexes are notorious for shaving costs, especially when it comes to lighting. They are notorious also for poorly lit parking garages and areas in between buildings. The bad guys love darkened areas

6. And lastly, if you don’t have a peephole in your front door, demand that you get one. You should never open your front door unless you absolutely know who is there.

Follow these six apartment security tips then get some home alarms including a wireless security system and you will be way ahead of the game.
