You’ve finally bought your dream condo in Pismo Beach, CA and are getting ready to settle in. One of your first steps should be to take stock of your security to ensure your condo is a safe place to live. The following security and safety tips from Neff & Associates Insurance Services Inc. can help you get started in enhancing the security of your new home.
Home Security System
If your condo doesn’t have a home security system, consider installing one to keep you safe and protect your goods. Depending on the location of your condo, your system could include an alarm, security camera or sensors for windows and doors to forewarn you when an intruder is trying to get into your condo. If you live on the bottom floor, outdoor security lights are a must.
Don’t forget to change the locks on your door(s) before moving in to avoid problems with former owners trying to get into your condo. Make backup keys as a precaution and only share them with people you fully trust.
Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Secure the inside of your condo by making sure all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working properly and the electrical system is up to date. An outdated electrical system increases your risk of fire. Faulty smoke and carbon monoxide detectors can endanger your life by not providing the protection you need against carbon monoxide poisoning and fire.
Purchase a condo insurance policy to protect the interior structure of your unit and your belongings. Condo insurance will help pay for damage to cabinets, ceiling, walls and floors in the event of a disaster. It will also protect your personal goods from theft and harm.
