guy locking doorIt’s easy to feel comfortable at home when you’re curled up on the couch in sweatpants in front of a good movie. But if your home is an apartment unit, it is inherently less safe than many houses. This has to do with many factors, including cheaper construction materials and the volume of people coming and going within the complex.

But don’t get disheartened; there are plenty of things that you can do to make your apartment more secure to reduce the chances of a break in. Try some of the following techniques:
  • Always lock the doors and windows before leaving and when going to sleep. If you don’t already have a deadbolt on your front door, ask management to install one for added protection.

  • Place a thick wooden dowel in the track of glass sliding doors to prevent anyone from prying their way in.

  • If you have a security alarm, set it each time you lock up.

  • Pick up a few timers and set your lights and a radio to turn on and off randomly throughout the day so it looks like someone is home.

  • Do you drop by your apartment over your lunch break to care for a pet? This is a great time to check for signs of suspicious activity.

  • Getting ready to leave town for a bit? Have a friend check on your place and collect your mail while you’re away. You can also ask the complex’s courtesy officer to keep an eye on things.
And perhaps the most important tip for theft prevention is to create a personal inventory. Keep an ongoing spreadsheet that details your valued possessions and their value. In the event of theft or other losses, this list helps you recover funds for replacements when you file a renters insurance claim.
