When moving into an apartment, security alarms are often the last thing on your mind!
The reason for this is that you have a "false sense of security" in that you've got a lot of (very close) neighbours who you think will be able to see things coming & going.
But the truth is, you're often LESS secure than being in the suburbs, as your floor may only have a handful of people that ever walk the hallway foyer in any given day.
The best apartments have access control from the apartment, and using keyless card or other passcode type entry systems that prevent access to the lifts or building without them.
Also - it's wise for apartments to have CCTV Cameras so that they can record what's going on 24/7.
But what about alarm systems for your individual apartment?
There really is only ONE kinds of alarm you can install easily. And that is a wireless alarm.
Of the various types of alarm system that are wireless, you can get ones that either have a camera, or don't have a camera.
Without doubt, the best wireless alarm systems are the video camera variety by videofied. They are simply sensational as they only activate and record when there is an event in front of the camera.
One major benefit of any wireless system is that you can literally pick it up and take it with you - which may be useful if you're renting the apartment or moving to a different one.
