Home Security Tips for Renters

Like homeowners, renters need to take control of their own home security. Apartment and home renters face their own unique security problems. Unlike homeowners, renters may not have control over service people or apartment complex employees who have access to their apartments while the renter is gone. Although they may not own the property, renters can take control over some of these security risks by taking a few precautions. Renters should discuss any security concerns they may have with the landlord before signing a contractual rental agreement.

Change the locks. Chances are in a rental situation, previous tenants and perhaps their friends and family members may have keys to the apartment. Either ensure that the landlord has changed the locks or make a request that that high-quality locks and deadbolts be installed. Go online and look for quality deadbolts and bump-proof locks.

Also, install new window locks as well as locks on sliding glass doors, whether you live on the first floor or above. Do not assume that if your new apartment is above the first floor that you do not have to worry about someone entering your domicile through windows and sliding glass doors.

Install an alarm system. Check with the landlord and ask about installing an alarm system. Today's wireless security systems make it easy for you to install a high-quality alarm system without drilling holes in the wall and wiring. Furthermore, the wireless systems can be easily disconnected and transported when you are ready to move. There are a wide variety of wireless systems on the market today. Be sure to go online and look for the system that will best suit your needs.

Utilize video cameras. Renters may not always know service workers who are entering the premises on behalf of the landlord. Wireless security video cameras allow the tenant to record those who enter the apartment or home while he is away. Wireless video cameras can be placed around the apartment for monitoring. With mobile self-monitoring, the tenant can access the video remotely and keep tabs on those in the property. Look online for the video security system that will work for you.

Purchase renter's insurance. Typically, property losses of the renter due to theft are not covered by the landlord’s insurance. Renters should purchase insurance if their valuables and property are worth more than the cost of the insurance premiums. Renter's insurance policies vary greatly in price and coverage. Be sure to research them online to find the coverage and price that suits your situation and budget.

Home security is for the renter as well as the homeowner. Be sure to go online to find more tips and home security products for the renter.
