Practical Tips for a Secure Home

Reinforce Sliding Doors

Sliding doors are often vulnerable points of entry. Strengthen their security by using a rod along the tracks to prevent forced entry.

Be Smart About Leaving Windows Open

Enjoy fresh air responsibly by locking windows when leaving or going to bed. Use rods on window tracks for added security.

Meet Your Neighbors

Build a sense of community and security by getting to know your neighbors. They can help keep an eye on your apartment when you’re away.

Get Creative with Hiding Spots

Think outside the box when hiding valuables. Consider unconventional spots like cereal boxes, cleaning supply areas, or even baggies in the freezer.

Use a Fire-Proof Safe

Protect important documents and valuables with a fire-proof safe. This ensures their safety not only from theft but also from fire and other disasters.

Close the Curtains

Keep blinds and curtains closed, especially at night or when away for extended periods, to deter potential burglars from peeking inside.

“Be Home” Even If You’re Not

Create the illusion of occupancy by leaving lights or a TV on, or using timed lights, to deter burglars from targeting your apartment.

Look Into Smart Home Safety

Explore smart home technology for added security. Smart cameras and smoke detectors can provide alerts to your phone, enhancing your peace of mind.

Preventative Measures

In addition to these tips, consider our key fob, key, and garage remote copying services as proactive measures. Having spare keys with trusted family and friends or accessing them in emergencies can prevent lockouts and ensure quick access to your home.

Remember, prevention is key when it comes to apartment safety. By implementing these practical tips and utilizing preventative measures, you can enhance the security of your home and enjoy greater peace of mind.
