Moving out and getting your first single apartment is fabulous. Having a space to call your own where you make all the rules is one of the best parts of adult life. Before you settle into your new digs and plan your housewarming party, however, there are some safeguards that you need to put in place. No matter if you move into a brand new, luxury high-rise or a quaint apartment in an older neighborhood, you will need these alarms installed in your home before moving in for good.
Smoke alarms come standard inside of apartments; however, they are sometimes overlooked by maintenance when fixing up an apartment for move in. Be sure to test out your smoke detector to make sure it is working. If the smoke detector is not working, have it replaced by maintenance or put in your own brand new smoke detector. It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to smoke alarms.
Carbon Monoxide detectors
Installing a carbon monoxide detector is considerably easier than installing a smoke alarm. Simply plug into the wall and go. This 30-second action can save your life if gas is accidentally left on. If you have an apartment that is connected to a garage this is an especially important task. Carbon monoxide, unlike smoke, is odorless and can overpower in a short amount of time. Peace of mind will come from having a detector installed in your new place.
Window and door alarms
Though a door alarm is one of the first things that you may think of, getting a window alarm is equally as important. It is easy to leave windows unlocked, and unlike the front door, windows often show most of your home's goods. Casing a home is easiest through windows, and when left opened, these points of entries are much less likely to be watched by neighbors than a door. Install a shrill alarm to your window to scare off any burglars.
Although you may think that you are protected with your home alarms, getting a separate alarm system for your safe is a great idea. If you keep money and expensive jewelry inside of your home, get a safe with a lock code that goes off with an alarm sound if the wrong code goes off. Even if the safe is removed from your home, it will call attention to the thief and may help in its safe return to your hands.Share
