If you own your own home you have control over who has access to keys and who is coming and going, when we look at this from a renters perspective, you can never tell how many sets of keys have been cut and does the previous tenant have them then long after they moved out. This is one security concern we see even new home buyer’s have when they move into their new home. Home security for renters is becoming more and more important. If you are renting an apartment, who do you know what the neighbors are like, and god knows how many people will be coming and going throughout the day, the complex might be secure but when someone gets into the complex they can spend hours inside with access to multiple homes, Smarter Home Security is more important than every.
