Safety at Home – For Your Apartment

General, Homeowner Tips

Did you know that renters are historically more likely than homeowners to experience burglaries? 

That’s why we strongly urge renters living in apartments to get security a  system.   But not all home security systems are designed with renters’ needs in mind, which can make shopping for one a bit tricky.

Below is a guide to help you choose the best system for your apartment:


Wireless Equipment

Most management companies don’t allow tenants to drill holes in the unit or run wires through the walls, so a wireless security system is a must.

Not only are wireless security systems easy to install and set-up (even a DIY system) but they are also often considered more reliable than wired ones because there are no wires for a burglar to cut, thereby disabling the system. Also, unlike with a wired system, a wireless system is portable so can be moved and installed in your new place.

Apartments usually have small footprints, only one entry door, and just a few windows. If this sounds like your apartment, you probably don’t need an extensive security system – EMC Security has a system that is perfect for apartments – for just $179.  Get yours here.


DIY Installation

EMC Security’s most advanced wireless system is also its most affordable system – with an easy DIY installation.  With DIY, you avoid installation fees and enjoy the convenience of setting up your alarm system according to your schedule.

Security Cameras Help Increase Apartment Security

A security system is one of the best ways to secure your apartment against a burglar. But don’t stop there. Use a security camera in combination with your security system to help further increase your apartment’s security.

When paired with a monitoring app, a security camera like EMC Security’s Indoor Camera ($79) can help you see what’s going on inside your apartment right from your smartphone.  Not only will it give you peace of mind, our “plug-in-and-go” portable indoor camera is so versatile, you can move it around your place when you want to see different things – like a pet, the sitter, house-keeper, etc.
