How to Install an Apartment Security System

As a valued tenant, we want you to feel secure in one of our apartments. While we have taken measures to make your unit and the building secure, perhaps you would like to beef up the security in your apartment. Here are some suggestions on how you can make your apartment more secure.

Security You Can Install

There are some simple ways that you can increase the security of your apartment. What is more – they won’t cost you much either.

Secure Sliding Doors

Sliding doors do not always have the best of locks. An easy solution is to install a security bar. You can buy them at Home Depot. If you want the really cheap version, just cut a broomstick or small board to fit on the track.

Close Your Blinds

If a thief can see what is in your apartment, they may be much more likely to break in and take it. When you leave the apartment, make sure your blinds or curtains are closed. An added bonus is that your apartment will be much cooler when you come home.

Lock the Windows

If you prefer fresh air, it can be easy to forget to close and lock the windows. This is an almost irresistible temptation to a thief. If your windows do not lock well, consider installing some additional security. Once again, Home Depot can come to the rescue.

Wifi Cameras

Wifi cameras are shockingly cheap these days and offer a quick and simple way to keep an eye on your home while you’re away!

Get a Doberman

No, not the dog but the Doberman security ultra-slim alarm. You simply stick it on the inside of the window or door and any hard vibrations or attempted break-in will trigger a loud 100 dB alarm. There are no wires and it runs on cell batteries.

Wireless Security Systems

A wireless security system will allow you to take it with you when you move. They are easy to install and come with a huge variety of features and levels of security. Here are a few sites you can check out:
