2. Front dead bolts. Improve. The real ones.
3. Timers on lights and TV or radio during absence.
4. During extended periods of time hire Pet Walking service to visit apartment (yes,even if you don’t have a pet)
Their T-shirts , jackets or vehicles are logo’d and interrupt the the schedule and send a signal to anyone “casing” the units.
5. Home Security Alarm. Connected to service or isolated to unit. SimpliSafe is an option. Panic buttons close.
6. ADT Alarm stickers on exterior windows doors.
7. Stop mail every time you’re away for a couple days. USPS makes it easy.
8. In home security camera app. Simple.
9. Re-key your apartment. Get control of your front door.
10. Learn how to stay safe.
