Frequently Asked Questions
I RENT A PROPERTY, CAN I STILL HAVE SECURITY?
When people normally think of burglaries, houses are the first buildings to come to mind. But did you know that, according to the National Crime Prevention Council, apartments are actually 85 percent more likely to be burgled than single-family homes?
“Home security” doesn’t only refer to houses; it applies just as much to apartments. Renters have possessions as valuable as homeowners, so they are just as vulnerable, if not statistically more. The same burglary methods apply: burglars will most often attack during the day, and they look for empty apartments with easy access, plenty of cover, and the best escape routes, Crime investigators report that more than 30 percent of all apartment burglars accessed the home through an open door or window.
For these reasons, it is important to consider and invest in apartment security measures that will keep you, your family, and your possessions safe.
Whether you own or rent your home, you have the right to protect yourself and the place where you live. However, you may want to at least run your potential security measures by your landlord first to let him or her know, particularly if it involves any kind of installation.
AFTER SECURITY IS INSTALLED, AM I SAFE?
E.H.S. will tell you that after security has been installed, you will be 90% safer!
In our professional opinion any security measure is more of a deterrent rather than a 100% guarantee.
99.4% of burglaries that occur are un-planned and chosen at random. Needless to say that if you have security and your neighbour does not, it is quite clear as to where the attempt will be.
Always remember that the burglar is an opportunist and rarely carries tools with them to begin to drill out locks or use car jacks to try and pull blinds, gates and window grills off the walls especially when such tools could incriminate them at a further date if found by community security officers or police.
However, it is to be advised that if they want to get in, they will and E.H.S. does not believe that any security system in the world is 100% safe.
