Providing Award-Winning Home Security Systems

Should Renters Worry About Home Security?

Lease AgreementOnce upon a time home security systems were really only practical for home owners. The only renters who could easily get access to home security systems were those whose landlords had taken the time to install a system in their building or in their unit.

That’s because once upon a time system installation required a lot of drilling and wiring changes that would have required a landlord’s permission. Installation costs may have been prohibitive for renters who were only going to stay in a place for a short period of time.

After all, in the past renting was often seen as just a stepping stone to home ownership.

But these days the landscape has changed considerably. Many people are choosing to rent in the long-term, as a lifestyle preference or choice.

And the technology has changed as well. Wireless security systems make it quite possible to install a security system without having to do anything to the home that a landlord might object to (which means you don’t have to go through a full consultation with him or her–one less hassle on your plate).

Like homeowners, renters might enjoy a small insurance discount for installing a security system. Renter’s insurance is generally pretty cheap to begin with, but every little bit helps.

Renters face the exact same burglary risks that homeowners do. After all, the bad guys aren’t exactly asking to see your lease before they try to kick down your door.

It won’t be right for every renter, of course. If you know you plan to move in six months then it might be better to wait until you’ve found more long-term accommodations.

But if you know you’re going to stay put for awhile a wireless home security system is an excellent investment that will keep you safer in your chosen home. And because the costs of installation are currently so low (we’re giving away over $1000 of equipment away for free on most installations) there’s never been a better time.
