Have you considered the effect of the lighting? Something as simple as quality lighting can be a great Home Security tool in an apartment. Setting up light timers will keep thieves guessing as they figure the odds of taking a stab at your apartment or moving on down the lane. All it takes is a bit of doubt for you to gain the edge in this battle of wits.
Who are the people living around you? Neighbors can be your greatest allies, but at time they can be your worst enemies. You will have little to fear from a neighbor breaking into your apartment (for obvious reasons), but you may have plenty to fear from their carelessness, or that of the people who come and go through their apartment. Even though it may look as if your security plan is well managed, you might be let down by the lack thereof next door. Get to know your neighbors so you know who you can trust and who you need to keep at arm’s length.
Do make it look like someone’s home. Even if it’s normally not occupied during the daytime, put lights, the TV, or a radio on a time to give burglars the impression that someone is there.
