When it comes to securing a home, homeowners have many choices. They can choose from a large variety of hardwired and wireless alarm systems, or they even have the option to install a hybrid alarm system, which consists of both hardwired and wireless devices, if they wanted to.
Renters, on the other hand, do not have that luxury. They have one choice really—install a wireless security alarm or go without an alarm system in their rental apartment or home altogether.
Since wireless alarm systems require no drilling of holes and no wire runs in order to be installed in rental apartments, landlords are much more willing to allow their tenants the opportunity to install one, as opposed to installing a hardwired home security system.
Wireless alarm systems are also just as effective as wired security systems are. The reason why wireless technology has gotten a bum rap over the years is due to issues that occurred when wireless home alarms first came out. These issues mainly included wireless interference with everyday household devices such as baby monitors, cell phones, and even wireless doorbells.
Over the years, wireless technology has gone through many changes and improvements, making wireless alarm systems a great way to provide burglary and fire coverage to any apartment or home, whether it is rented or owner-occupied.
Burglars do not care if a person owns or rents the property that they are planning to burglarize. All they care about is getting in and out of the home undetected. That is why it is so imperative for renters to take action and secure their rental apartments with wireless alarm systems, regardless of how long they plan on living there.
