Best Home Security Gadgets for Your Apartment

    a house

    You love your new apartment and want to make it feel like home, which includes making sure it is safe. To protect your family, your peace of mind, and your belongings, it is advisable to investigate ways that you can deter the bad guys. The following gadgets will help you do just that.

    Doberman Security Entry Defense Alarm

    This door alarm has you covered with a 100-decibel siren, about as loud as a jackhammer, to scare burglars off before they can harm you or your luxury apartment. In addition, the easy installation means you can start protecting your apartment in minutes.

    Aluminum Patio Door Security Bar

    Weak locks and breakable glass make sliding glass doors easy access points for intruders. Add extra security with an aluminum bar that helps prevent a thief from prying open your sliding glass door. However, do not forget to keep patio doors and other sliding doors locked; a security bar is not enough protection on its own.

    Etched Glass Window Film

    Visible valuables like electronics, jewelry, and nice furniture tempt curious trespassers to break into your apartment. However, when you use Etched Glass Window Film, they will not be able to see what is inside or if anyone is there. This window film also offers privacy without blocking light; it just blocks nosey people who are up to no good.

    One-Way Wide-Angle Peephole

    See who is at the door before you open it with a one-way wide-angle peephole. The thick glass and 190-degree angle view let you keep an eagle eye on your front porch. In addition, it only works one way, so you do not have to worry about giving strangers a view of your apartment.

    Window/Door Alarm

    If anyone tampers with your windows or doors, locked or not, these alarms trigger a startling siren. Most entry sensors come with an on, off, or chime mode too, so you can select the security function you need throughout the day.

    Smart Plug Outlet

    Use smart plugs to turn lights, TV, and other electronics on and off, even if you are across town. This gives the impression that someone’s home, which can scare off an intruder. You can also turn lights on as you turn into your apartment to make your trip inside bright and safe.

    Personal Alarm

    A personal security alarm gives you portable safety wherever you go. If you ever find yourself in a dangerous situation, whether in the parking lot, jogging, or out on the town, trigger the alarm to scare off your assailant and call for help.

    You do not have to channel your inner Macaulay Culkin to keep intruders out of your home. With a little common sense and help from the right devices, you can help your belongings and your family stay safe.
