Home Security Options for Renters

Just because you’re renting doesn’t mean you can’t have a secure dwelling. Many renters give up on the idea of home security early, thinking there will be too much of a hassle to make it worthwhile or they may not be allowed such by their landlord and real estate.

Today there are a whole range of options available that can be effectively implemented in a rental apartment or house that are subtle and may not require major modifications to the property.

We’ve seen multiple cases where tenants are quite surprised at their property managers reaction to their request to improve the security. Many landlords appreciate the idea that their tenant will be happier and more secure, plus the reduced risk of a break in or damage to the property (keeping insurance claims and repair costs down).

Where to Start?

To get started, speak with an Australian certified and experienced security product provider. They’ll be able to provide you with options for your unique situation. There’s a whole range of variables to take into account, such as the amount of windows your property has, where it is located, whether it is an apartment in a complex or individual house and more, which is why it’s great to chat to a professional who understands what needs to be done for effective security in the vast range of Australian living environments. These professionals focus on understanding the intricate requirements for property security, passing the knowledge and peace of mind onto you.

Depending what can be done for your property, you’ll then need to speak with your landlord, real estate agent or property manager to confirm if these improvements can be made.

Wireless Security Systems

In some cases, fitting a wired security system may be impossible due to being unable to drill through the walls or your landlord / real estate agent may not be comfortable with the modifications required for a wired system. Wireless systems can offer an effective alternative here, plus you can take the system with you when you move.
