If You Are Not Going To Install Apartment Alarms You May As Well Just Leave Your Door Wide Open

April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

If you are one of the millions of Americans who reside in an apartment or condominium and have not taken the time or effort required to install an apartment alarm I would like for you to do me a favor. Next time you leave the apartments just leave the door wide open. That's right, just leave it wide open for any Tom, Dick or Harry to walk right in and make themselves at home in your apartment. Actually, when you get outside your building just shout out loud to no one in particular "Hey, I left my apartment door wide open and I'm not going to be home for quite some time!" Of course, you will want to leave your apartment number so that any strange drifters you've just notified of your absence will know where to look and won't waste time trying to break into your neighbor's apartment.

I understand that this is an absolutely ludicrous request and one that makes absolutely no sense but in my opinion it is ludicrous that so many people are still leaving their apartment every morning to go to work, or at night to go out on the town, and leaving their residence completely unsecured other than the lock on the door. The fact of the matter is that apartment dwellers are almost 3 times as likely to experience a break in as is someone living in a single family home. Things really get ludicrous when you consider that home alarm systems are installed in a much higher percentage of homes than are installed in apartments. Although perhaps that is one of the reasons burglars more often choose to rob an apartment than a single family home, they might feel they have a lesser chance of triggering a burglar alarm in an apartment. This is precisely why apartment dwellers need to install some kind of alarm system immediately.

Also, home alarms are way more costly than the typical apartment alarm and much more complex and harder to install, so much so that a professional installation service is almost always required (which costs even more money!). The average apartment alarm takes about 10 seconds to install and costs about as much as lunch for two at a fast food restaurant. So when you consider the fact that these alarms are extremely affordable, extremely simple to install and you're three times as likely to need one as you would living in a single family home it just doesn't make a shred of sense not to install one today in your apartment or condo.

Stay Safe, Car Vouer
