Tip #1: Get a dog

While not all apartment complexes allow pets, if you are lucky enough to live in one that does, dogs make a great security measure. Dogs are cute, loving and very protective of their owner. Dogs have more acute hearing and smell than humans, and so are likely to detect a threat long before you can.

Tip #2: Get an alarm system

At Security Essentials of Lexington, it is our goal to keep you safe during the day and during the night when you are sound asleep. The first step to securing your home is to have us install a residential alarm system. Your residential alarm system will be monitored 24 hours a day and can detect motion as well as breaches of your doors or windows. Unfortunately, homes do catch fire. That is why we offer carbon monoxide monitoring along with fire/smoke and heat detection. It is crucial to your family that you always be prepared for the unforeseen.

Tip #3: Keep an eye on your apartment from anywhere

When you are at work or out enjoying a beautiful day with your family, wouldn't you feel more at ease knowing your apartment can still be protected without you there? Of course the answer is yes! With our HD security camera system, you can keep an eye on your property from any distance or location.
