When you are going to rent some apartment you are normally not allowed to change the locks on your own or install some security system to the premises. So, with such restrictions, where does your apartment’s security stand? Of course, you are not too safe inside your rental apartments in such cases as the landlords are often found to be negligent and they do not really come up with sufficient security measures taken for the residents. There are, however, some simple ideas that you can implement for making the apartment feel more secure and keeping yourself as well as your family and belongings safe inside.
To start with, you should add some alarms to the windows and doors of your Stockbridge apartments as the initial security measures. Stick-on alarms can be purchased to go on your apartment’s windows and doors. These alarms typically have a couple of parts. One of them sticks to door while the other one sticks to your door frame. As soon as somebody opens the door, these parts get separated and an alarm goes off which is an indication of the suspicious activity taking place in the apartment. On/Off feature is also incorporated in these alarms and this feature allows you to avoid any false alarms when you get into the apartment or leave it. It should also be ensured that you place the alarms securely on the doors as these alarms will also start sounding in case if adhesive fails making them to fall off.
The next thing you should do, as a security measure for your rental apartments in Stockbridge, is to make the windows secure simply with the help of wooden rods. The space present above the bottom window should be measured and you should cut wooden rod of that specific length. Now this rod should be placed in space that may be present between bottom window and window frame when the window has to be secured and you need to keep it closed, not letting anybody inside through the windows.
A rod can also be purchased to jam the door as this can certainly be a source of adding more security to your doors. You can make use of such a rod at the front door. You can even use this option to secure the door of your bedroom. When you use this, the door is being braced so that people are restricted from getting inside no matter if the door is locked or not. Rod’s top slides underneath door knob while its bottom stays on floor making an angle. The rod should be kicked into place for adding some pressure between floor and the knob.
All these are just a few tricks that can allow you to add an extra layer of security to your rentals in GA.
