There are many who opt for apartments with the assured knowledge that there are security guards and other security monitoring and guarding the apartments round the clock. But, even in places like these there are chances for intruders to get in through different ways. There are multiple door entries and exits to an apartment. It is easy to monitor a building by someone, by just being across the road to know the daily activities happening in the apartment. For example, there are chances to know the possible security shifts, breaks taken by the security, how many people are living in the particular apartment and their daily activities, etc. there are chances for the neighbors not knowing who lives next to their apartment. Thus, many may not who is living next and this provides an excellent opportunity for trespassers.

There are many apartments were the security men allow people inside when they say they are guests to a particular apartment. Though there is lot of apartments which has automated security systems where the house owner can decide whether to let in a particular person or not, there are still chances for intruders to get into the apartments. They can easily say that they are plumbers or people from the electricity and get into the building. So, there are chances for burglary happening in plain sight and no one may know about it unless it is too late!

There are a few precautions that can be taken to prevent such things. The first and foremost is to have monthly meetings with the security manager and talking about the possible security concerns and upgrades that are being done to the building so that everyone’s aware about the security measures that are being taken by the security team. It also provides an opportunity to meet the other occupants in the building and get to know each other.

When moving into an apartment, it is always advisable to change the locks that were used by the previous occupants. There are chances for availability of multiple keys that the people who are moving may not be aware about it. In most cases, the apartment management changes and gives the locks, but if it is not done then it is always better to get the locks changed. There are so many security services available like the ADT Security Services that ensures the proper security of an apartment.

It is always better to check on the people before they enter into the apartment. There might be a few who say they have come for a reading or for an inspection. It is always safe to call the relevant authorities and check on the credibility of their claim. Another popular and common practice by many thieves is pressing on the buzzes of all the apartments with the hope that there will be at least one who will give access inside and then they check on any unlock doors to loot.

It is always better to take measures to prevent any form of threat happening. Though there is security available for apartments and there are people living next doors, the chances for burglary, theft or any other mishap to happen is still a possibility. No one can be casual about security with the belief that the security team in the building can always look after the building. It canny be done effectively without some cooperation and help from the occupants of the building. It is always better to be safe rather than sorry when it is too late. Though there is security equipments that pin-point on the people entering and leaving the building and the time of their entries and exits for the day, measures can be taken in advance to prevent intruders from even entering in to the apartment.
